#MonthlyMani: Happy V-Day!

Are you ready for Valentine’s Day? In honor of the love-y love-y day I’m wearing red and/or pink every day this week. I own a lot of red, so this is fairly easy. Anyway, my nails are also ready for the festivities!

For this month’s theme I went as I always do: super easy! I have to let you in on a secret: These heart nails are about as easy as it gets. I took a page from Kristi’s book and used a coffee mug to show off my nails. She’s so smart!

Here’s what I did:

Pink heart: I used a striper. You get a bit more control with your designs using one, but alternatively you could use my go-to nail art tool: a bobby pin.

Black hearts + text: I used a sharpie! Sharpie nail art is the best thing ever. You have to use a top coat though or it will just rub right off. I have the metallic sharpies, too, and those are amazing on a dark nail.

Left hand vs. right hand: So I did the left hand myself and then was confounded on how to do my right hand. So I asked (forced) my husband to draw hearts on my right hand! I knew if there was one week that I could get an “oh, alright” from him it would be this week only. Or maybe our anniversary week. Anyway, they look absolutely goofy but they each make me smile a lot. And bonus: He didn’t even draw a penis on one of the nails! You don’t even know how surprised I was about this.

It’s not the big V-day yet! Go buy some sharpies raid your office supplies and make these nail hearts happen.

Oh wait! Better idea: Get more Valentine’s Day nail art inspiration from the rest of the Monthly Mani bloggers:
