Manicure Monday: Valentine's Day nails

So it's that time of year again. This year, as my boyfriend currently doesn't have a job and I'm trying very hard to not overspend, we're keeping the celebrations very low key. I knew I wanted to do a VDay nail look on the blog so instead of buying the latest red polishes I thought I'd just raid my stash as I was sure I had some. I was right. I had loads. So many that it was hard to choose which ones to feature, but in the end I went for some traditional reds and a pastel and a bright pink, which I think all work really well together. I also got some Christmas nail stickers last year that for some reason included the words LOVE and HATE on them so I decided the LOVE stickers would work really well for this look. I did contemplate using the HATE stickers for an alternative VDay nail look but decided against it in the end.

I'm really glad I dug these polishes out because they're so pretty. I particularly like the bright pink matte Barry M polish. It's called 'Rhossili' and I featured it on the blog way back in 2014. You can read my thoughts on it here. It's lovely to apply and because it's a matte polish it dries super quick!

The Nella Milano polish was one I received last year and is actually part of an Easter polish collection, but it's such a lovely red that it can be used for Valentine's Day and even Christmas if you wanted to!

The Nails Inc polish is absolutely ancient and one of those ones I got free with some sort of Coca Cola deal in Boots years and years ago or free in a magazine. I don't think I've actually ever bought a full-priced Nails Inc polish, just because they're so ridiculously expensive so I always make good use of magazine freebies or offers.

Lastly, the pastel pink polish is one I received last year from Freedom Makeup's Les Nudes collection. The whole range was absolutely gorgeous so again I'm super happy to have raided my stash and rediscovered this. It's still lovely to apply and not to thin that you need loads of coats either.

All in all I'm pretty happy with my Valentine's Day nail look and it's my own little way of celebrating the day without having spent any money!

Tweet me a picture of your Valentine's Day nails @cherryp13 or let me know in the comments what your fave VDay nail look is.

  1. The flatlay photos are so pretty! The red/pink shades with florals are always a sucker for me. I'm also one to want to keep Valentine's Day lowkey... The shades all go well together and I particularly like the one from Nails Inc :)

  2. The Freedom and Barry M nail polishes are my two favourite shades. Both would be so perfect for Valentine's Day. I might have to raid my stash too! x
