Belated Valentine's Day 2014 Nails - Gold Heart Studs

Hey everyone! So, I think the title of this post says it all, right? No need to explain? No...? Well, basically this week has been my "homework from hell" week. Coupled with last week, which was ANOTHER snow week here in Georgia. It's kind of scary, to be honest. It was below freezing every day last week and now it's 70 degrees out. The weather is doing weird things. So, because of the crazy weeks, I did not get to paint my nails for Valentine's Day (or as I fondly refer to it, Singles Awareness Day) until the 14th! And then I went out with my friends and my mom and watched Winter's Tale in theaters (can you say best holiday ever? Colin Farrell and Russell Crowe in the same movie? Mmmmm yes indeed) and then I haven't been able to post my manicure all week because of the homework from hell. But they're here now, so don't worry. I'm afraid they might not have been worth the wait, haha.

So for my base color, I used China Glaze Ahoy!, which is one of my absolute favorite CG polishes ever. You may not be able to tell in my photos (taken sans light box because I was in a hurry), but I think it's extremely flattering on my skin tone and it's just such a rich, glistening pink. I love it more than any other pink in my collection, hands down. I then paired it with some big (well, they were big on my teeny tiny baby nails, but they're probably medium sized for other people) gold heart studs that I got from Five Below. I had to bend the studs so they would sit flat on my nails, but they still ended up falling off within two days. But that was probably because I didn't bend them enough. Thankfully, I didn't lose them and they're still in good shape, so I can probably reuse them! :)

So I know this was super simple and a week late, but I still hope you enjoyed it! Let me know what you think. Thanks for reading, have a great day, and happy painting! :)
