Digit-al Dozen Theme Week was delayed this month so our Love & Heartbreak manis would coincide with Valentine’s Day. Whether you love this holiday or hate it, we have you covered. Since I tend to be a Valentine’s Day Lover and not a Fighter, I had to really force myself to do a few gloomy heartbreak manis…starting today. For some reason the combination of gray with messy black hugs and kisses says “heartbroken” to me.
I started with one coat of China Glaze Pelican Gray and two coats of Vivid Lacquer Theoretical Rockstar. Theoretical Rockstar has a medium gray jelly base with black, white and silver micro glitter. This was the first time I’ve tried this polish and it’s now my favorite Vivid Lacquer! Then I added “angry” X’s and O’s. How does one make X’s and O’s angry? I’m not sure…but using a black It’s So Easy striper (which is hardly easy to control on round objects) and making aggressive strokes seemed like a good way to try. [clearly sometimes I overthink things.] I finished the look with Sephora by OPI matte topcoat.
I really like the result. It’s not your typical V-Day mani. Of course, in the spirit of full-disclosure, my husband told me he liked my “tic-tac-toe” mani. *sigh* You can find Vivid Lacquer on Etsy and Facebook.
