52 Week Challenge Week 7

Hello everyone :)
This weeks 52 week challenge was Valentines Day nails. I spent a long time looking for inspiration for this weeks challenge and their were several things I was sure of: I wanted to use pinks and white and I wanted some sort of nail art at the tip of the nail. So here's what I came up with...

I used 4 coats of OPI Isn't That Precious as the base colour. This polish is a new one and its absolutely beautiful, even though it took several coats to build up the colour pay off is worth it :) I then used two coats of Models Own Pink Blush for the V shaped tips, which I freehanded and am rather proud of :P I then used OPI Alpine snow and a dotting tool to add the small dots. 

Originally I wanted to add a love heart to the thumb and ring nail to add a little extra something to this mani but I knew I'd mess it up and get angry at myself, so I left it. I really like how it turned out actually. The colours worked well together and it was super cute and sweet and girly.

Also since I've been using Nail Envy for around 3 weeks now I've noticed my nails haven;t been chipping. Usually my nail polish starts to chip around 1-2 days after application, after using nail envy this doesn't happen anymore. I've also noticed my nails no longer peel or split horizontally, I am very impressed. Also I've barely made a dent in the bottle and I use it all the time :P

I hope you like my Valentines day mani, let me know what you think in the comments :)
Thanks for reading :)

    1. I use two coats as base coat and then my polish and a top coat. Then every other day I add a coat of Nail Envy on top until I change my mani and then I start again :)

    2. And it works well as a base coat? I have trouble finding anything that will actually stick to my nails. Bonder and Sticky don't work very well, I get 2, maybe 3 days without any chipping. Color Club Vitabase lasted 1 day! I just picked up Poshe and China Glaze last week but I haven't tried them yet. So far I have the best lasting power with Zoya, but I'd love to find a base that actually helps strengthen my nails too!
