#BusyGirlNails | Week 5–”Valentine’s Day Hearts and Dots”

These are a day late, but I swear I had these on my nails yesterday! This manicure didn’t come out quite as neatly as I had wanted them to, but creating hearts with a dotting tool can be hit or miss for me at times. I used only Avon Gel Finish 7 in 1 polishes for the entire manicure and they are now officially my new favourite polish obsession! I started with two coats of Barely There, which is a gorgeous creamy opaque nude, followed by hearts and dots in both Parfait Pink and Roses are Red.

I did not use a base or top coat as these polishes are supposed to incorporate both, but I did apply a top coat a full 24 hours afterwards and I STILL got smearing! I used the new Nicole by OPI – Quick Dry Top Coat which I have really been loving for its dry time and shine, but I just couldn’t believe that my manicure still smeared after a full day!

And that brings us to the end of the #BusyGirlNails challenge! I’m sure there will be more challenges to come, but thank you for reading these past 5 weeks! I hope you all have a lovely weekend and long weekend for those of you celebrating Family Day!
