Valentine Manicure

I know it's a little late, but this is my Valentine Weekend manicure. My Valentine's Day manicure was a bit of a disaster, so this one definitely made up for it. In the pics, my accent nail looks red, but it was really a hot pink. Artificial Lighting just doesn't do Conquistadorable Color justice. Sigh.

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
2 Coats OPI Black Onyx (Non-Accent Nails)
2 Coats OPI Conquistadorable Color
2 Coats Revlon Sparkling
2 Coats OPI Do You Think I'm Tex-Y?
1 Coat Seche Vite

This is a pretty simple manicure. Black and pink, very similar to the very first accent mani I ever saw. I can't tell you the exact season or episode, but Hanna's character on Pretty Little Liars wore black nail polish with red accent fingers. That very night, I mimicked the look with two of my all time favorite polishes, OPI You Don't Know Jacques! and Paint My Moji-toes Red. I've been hooked on accent manicures ever since! 

I knew I wanted to wear black polish for Valentine's Day... Originally, I planned to accent with one of the Wet n Wild Fergie glitters, but the formula on them is sooooo problematic. I decided to go bold and use one of the brightest pinks in my collection, making a nice jelly sandwich on my accent fingers. I really loved the look of this manicure.

What polish did you wear this Valentine's Day?!?
