Feeling Mushy!

Good morning lovelies!

I apologize in advance for any nausea you may experience in the next 5 minutes lol.  My anniversary is on Sunday!  It will be one year since I married my handsome goofball and it really has flown by.  It's been a year of big changes and growth for the both of us and things just keep getting better. all this is preface to the fact that I'm in a romantical mood this week, soooo.... you get romantic mani's!! Lol...

 Colors Used: Mentality Nail Polish - Elizabeth, Rimmel - Black Satin

While I personally don't have a strong desire to go to Paris, it is the stereotypical romantic destination.  And... I like painting the Eiffel Tower haha.

 I started with 2 coats of Elizabeth which is actually a GORGEOUS matte polish.  It has a beautiful light pink shimmer that I couldn't seem to capture thru photos.  I discovered Mentality Nail Polish whilst perusing Etsy and I'm so glad I did!  The polishes are amazing and I can't wait to order more!

Here is a solo shot of Elizabeth ($7.00 for those who are curious)...


 Anywhosy, to create the tower I started with my "A" shape using a striping brush. I then painted two smaller lines at the top.  Lastly, I painted a curved line at the base so that the tower didn't look so rigid.  The polka dots were achieved using a dotting tool...


I'm tossing around the idea of doing a tutorial for this mani?  Would anyone be interested??  Lemme know!

Until next time!
