Inspired by... Pinterest!

Hello everyone, happy Monday! Today is my second Pinterest inspired mani with Amanda. On my Butter London Molly Coddled post, I alluded to the fact that there'd be another post with that color, so Molly Coddled is my base color for a mani inspired by this post by Dori Davis (which is a new-to-me blog but I'm obsessed with it now):


Dori used tape to create the hearts but I'm a rebel (Dottie? anyone catch that reference?!) and decided to freehand it (which should indicate to you why last week's Pinterest mani involved using heart glitter rather than my mad freehand skillz). Also, since it's "Inspired by Pinterest" and not necessarily "Copy Pinterest", I decided to only do hearts on my middle two fingers and used Candy Lacquer Love-ly Lavender on my pinky and pointer. The gray crackle is the one from China Glaze but I know you guys don't really care about that so I'm going to channel my inner lazy and not look up the actual name.


What do you think? I was amazed how perfectly my middle finger's heart cracked and even mentioned it on twitter haha! I think this is a good, muted way to show a Valentine's mani that isn't all red and pink and hearts. (Though there's nothing wrong with that in my book!)

xoxo,
Amanda

Oooh I have the Red OPI shatter and I've never ever ever used it despite getting it like 2 years ago, maybe I'll do this with it! (In my defense it was in a set and I REALLY wanted the other polish lol)

Thanks! I just freehanded it and it didn't work out too bad, but I bet you could use tape as well to block out the heart shape.

Amanda, Nail Polish Enthusiast said...

Me too! I laugh the whole way through!

Amanda, Nail Polish Enthusiast said...

You don't wanna get mixed up with a guy like me.

Amanda, Nail Polish Enthusiast said...

Do it! I double dog dare ya!

Amanda, Nail Polish Enthusiast said...

Thank you! I'm very partial to purple and gray so it seemed like a good excuse :)
