*DEAL ALERT* A Girl's Necessities & V'Day Nail Art!

Hi My Loves!!!

It's that time of year again… Love is in the air :) It's Valentine's Day and today I have a nail tutorial for you that is cutesy enough for Valentine's Day but still perfect for any occasion. Target is currently having a promotion (only Target stores are having this deal) where if you buy any 3 U by Kotex products you receive a FREE Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Nail Polish of your choice. If you go into the end cap display near the feminine hygiene section. They have the U by Kotex products as well a few of the polishes to pick from. I ended up going to the actual nail polish section to pick out more shades. This promotion ends Feb 22nd so if you are in need of tampons, pads etc, then hurry while you can get free polish :)

Here's what the shelf display at my Target looked like.

Mermaids Tail looked super pretty!

Here's what I ended up buying. I have actually used up a bottle of the Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Hardener before and loved it so I picked up some more of that as my base. I've currently been painting my toe nails without a base coat and they have some serious staining going on from red polishes! I also picked up 2 of the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polishes (one free with my Kotex goodies) and then I picked up the Sally Hansen Super Shine Top Coat. I just ran out of mine and when doing nail art it's always good to have a top coat. 

1.) First step is to apply your base coat.

2.) Apply 2 coats of the 220 Arm Candy.

3.) On the second to last pinky toe apply the 120 Golden Rule. I only used 1 coat of this.

Now I forgot I was doing this step, so just apply the glitter polish alone, not over the nail art haha!

4.) Using the Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen in Blanc draw the top half of a heart as if you were applying a french tip on all of the toes but the glitter toe.

5.) Apply little dots with the Pen in Magenta along the edges of the white heart tops. Make the center one the biggest.

6.) Follow with the top coat and you have a fun Valentine's twist on a French Tip :)

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and I hope you all enjoy your Valentine's Day…. after all, "Love is all you need!"
