Happy Holo Valentine's Day!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!  This post will be somewhat short because Mr. Sparkles and I are spending our day making macarons together, then we will go out to dinner and a movie for our date tonight, so we have lots to do.  I'm glad to have V-Day fall on my day off this year though, so we get to spend the whole day enjoying one another! :)

For this I used one of my Sally Hansen Nail Prisms in Ruby Diamond.  This color is a nice bright pink linear holo, and I'm so glad I have it in my collection.  My light box photos made the color look a bit washed out, the sunlight ones are more true to the color.

Then, to jazz it up for Valentine's, I used a Red Angel stamp from the plate RA-101, and stamped with Finger Paints Black Expressionism.  This was my first try with a french mani stamp, and I liked how it turned out.  I think I need to give these more use when my nails are on the longer side.

I will have one last Valentine nail design to post tomorrow, which is the one I'm wearing today.  Hope everyone has a great day and gets some love from someone, whether it is a significant other or a family member! <3
