Nail of The Week: My Valentine's Day Manicure

This is what I did as a Valentine's Day manicure. I wanted to do something that I would be able to live with all week. I knew that if I did the hearts and pastels I would have drove myself crazy. I like girlie things but I am not that girlie.

Nail Polish: O.P.I Black Onyx, China Glaze Heli-Yum (2 Coats)
Base: Nail Tek, Orly Bonder
Top Coat: Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

It is not my best manicure. I love OPI's Black Onyx nail polish. But it is always such a pain to work with for me because of the little air bubbles that always happen when I use it. Does anyone know how I can avoid this?

As for the pink color, I used Heli-Yum from the China Glaze Up and Away collection. It is a very pretty raspberry pink color. But as much as I liked the color this was the wrong polish to use on this manicure. It was pretty difficult to work with because it was really runny.

I will be trying this manicure again. But with different nail polish colors.

What do you think?
