Nail Polish Canada: Valentine’s Day Nail Art Challenge

Given recent events, I did not think I would be up for participating in a Nail Art Challenge…

However, as I was playing around with the beautiful Carrie Underwood for Nicole by OPI polishes (will soon be on the blog), inspiration struck! I really wanted to do a simple gradient, so I sponged on three beautiful colours for a Valentine’s Day-appropriate mani that was perfectly my style. I hope you like it enough to vote for it on Nail Polish Canada’s contest page.

I used Nicole by OPI’s new 3-in-1 Base and topped that with 2 coats of the beautiful Color Me Country, a beautiful coral pink in an amazing creme formula that leans slightly jelly:

I then sponged on a three-colour gradient: the stunning cherry red American as Apple Pie towards the tips (you may have seen it on my Instagram feed – it’s incredible) and the deep pink Some Hearts in the middle, with a touch of the base colour Color Me Country towards the cuticles.

I used Glitter Gal’s fantastic top coat Gloss Boss to finish it all up, et voila:

What do you think of the end result?

If you like my nail art, would you vote for me on the Nail Polish Canada challenge page?
