He loves me...

Hello everyone! So sorry that I have neglected to post lately. Sadly my mother has been in and out (and back in) the hospital and I have been rather upset and stressed lately. BUT not posting has been making me more sad, so here is a quickly done post for you all. 

It is now February the month of love, so it's safe to say that all manicures done for this month will have a love theme. I don't even like to celebrate Valentines day since I find it to be just a sad, miserable holiday. Most of the time I am single on Valentines, so February 14th has always been a reminder that I am alone, and that is just a crappy feeling! However, I am an advocate for love. Love has many sides to it and in my opinion, it is the best thing in the world. 

My first experience with love, besides the love of my family, would be the time I experienced my first crush. Of course I played the silly, "he loves me, he loves me not" game with any kind of flower I could find in the fields at recess, so I decided that would be a cute idea for a nail art design.


For those unaware of the game, "He loves me, he loves me not," is a game you play when you are in love with someone (or have a crush) and want a silly way to find out if the person feels the same way about you. Find a flower with multiple petals and one by one pull the petal off of the flower going back and forth between the person your fancy, loving you or not. So for example, as you pull of the first petal you would say "he loves me," then the next petal, "he loves me not" and so on and so forth. The final petal will reveal your loves true intentions haha. It's very silly but it's fun.

It's a simple design and really cute, especially if you would do this all the time like I did haha. I was rather boy crazy as a child. All you need to recreate this look is a nail art brush, a lighter colored base color, a green polish for the stem and leaves, color for the petals and color for the pollen of the flower.

What I used:
Base coat: Essie ridge filling base coat
Base color: Essence You Belong to Me
Stem and leaves: Art Deco Bright Green
Petals: Ulta Plum Perfect (with a little white mixed in)
Pollen (or middle of flower): Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow

Essence You Belong to Me is becoming one of my favorite polishes and it was only 99cents at Ulta! Definitely need to go get more of it. I hope you enjoyed my post! More love themed nails are on the way!

Until next time,
Erin
