NOTD: Essie Wife Goes On

I actually did this manicure after V-day, and after completing it, I realised how V-day appropriate it is...

See what I mean? So V-day appropriate!

I used the following polishes for my NOTD...
From left to right, Butter London Nail Foundation Flawless Basecoat, Essie Wife Goes On, Essie Status Symbol, Color Club Oooooo La La, Essie 3-way Glaze.

Sorry about the messiness - I got excited and started snapping pictures before cleaning up
After applying a coat of the Butter London Flawless Basecoat, I applied two coats of Wife Goes On. I then did the white hearts on the thumb and ring finger with Color Club's Oooooo La La. I had to do about two coats of that to make the white more opaque. After letting that dry, I used Essie's Status Symbol to paint on the pink heart on my thumb. I then finished off with about 3 coats of Essie's 3-way glaze, as I wanted to make sure that this mani lasted at least 5 days after all that trouble!

I didn't really do a good job with the white on my thumb, but I think I did a pretty good job regardless considering it was my first go at painting love hearts free hand!

It took me several goes to get my right hand done (I'm right handed). I so desperately wished (still do wish actually) my left hand wasn't so retarded uncooperative!

    1. Nail polish NEVER stays on my bare nails but lasts forever on gels.
