I had no idea how these nails would turn out as these are two new colours from my ever growing untrieds collection, however I have to say I am very pleased with the results.
To create this manicure I started with a base colour of Models Own Raspberry Crush. This really is a gorgeous shade of red/pink and dries to a very high shine (swatch below). I then used a coat of Models Own Pearly Queen to create a subtle colour shifting effect. So pretty in real life but a little camera shy I am afraid.
Finally I stamped this simple little hearts and lines design from BM11 using Konad White. It wasnt my intention to create something that looks so much like a Valentines manicure but after our wonderful few days away the romantic in me is being reflected in my nail art.

Such a shame that it is time to get back into the usual routine at work but I have decided my mantra to get me through the day will be... I work to live, not live to work.
I am saving for our next holiday already.
