My Entry into the Be My Valentine Nail Art Contest ♥

Valentine's Day is approaching... Well, it's not a day I care much about. So far, only once I had a boyfriend on Feb. 14th, so I don't know, it's a bit annoying when all the couples around me get all lovey-dovey... Maybe I'll treat myself to some nama-choco this year... (nama-choco = soft chocolate, I came to know this in Japan)

Anyway, I do like pink though and I do like challenges. So I decided sit down and do some real nail art and participate in the "Be My Valentine Nail Art Contest" held by Lacquered Me on Facebook. This is my entry into the contest. There are a lot of other great entries, too. Please take a minute to look at them :) If you like mine, I would be really happy, if you would take the time to vote for it!

I used Catrice Sweets for my Sweets as my base color. It just seemed to be such an appropriate choice :D Then, I started to paint the white parts using white acrylic paint. Using a striper brush, I freehanded the lace around it.

The leopard spots are done using the Catrice polish again, as well as some Elf polish that doesn't have a label on it. I had to water them down with some nail polish thinner, because both polishes turned out to be too goopy for the details. I tried to make the spots in a heart shape... Meh, I still need to practice with those striper brushes to get those tiny details done.

At the end, I surrounded the heart on my thumb with bullion beads. Last was a thick coat of essence BTGN Top Sealer. Yay, I managed to *not* smudge my design this time :D

What do you think? Pink enough?
