NAILS | Valentine's Day 2021 #CBBxManiMonday

Yes, I know it's February 15th and Valentine's Day is over, but it seemed a shame to not have done any Valentine's Day-themed nails so here they are! I came across a screenshot of a Cutepolish tutorial in my Google search for some ideas as she often "borrows" from other nail polish bloggers without giving credit so I won't bother linking her video. I think in this particular video she has her collaborators doing the design so it's not her specifically anymore, but I have read enough about her in my early blogging days taking ideas from smaller bloggers, having those smaller bloggers fight back only to be attacked by her followers. I don't think it's hard to give credit to where you originally saw a design and though it's hard to call anything original now, I think you should do your best so if you Google "Valentine's Day Nail Art", a screenshot of her video will pop up should you wish to use it. The only thing I changed is making the pinky nail a leopard print nail.

My husband and I rarely do anything for Valentine's Day because we think it's a rip-off for food and flowers so we have often stayed home and made something special or gone out another night when restaurants weren't as busy. This year, we are still trying to socially distance and not go out if we don't have to so we made a delicious steak dinner at home where I dressed up and then we proceeded to sit down and have dinner while watching Parks and Recreation. I don't know about you, but it was kind of a perfect night with or without the pandemic.

Everything on my nails was handpainted either dotting tools or a small paintbrush and it felt good to exercise my nail art skills again as I have been too tired/lazy to do anything incredibly complicated for the last couple of months. Also, trying to write letters still requires a brutal amount of concentration! I think my eyes went dry from trying not to blink!
