NOTD: Valentine's Hearts

 It's the return of nail art to Polka Polish!  Since I've been working on my blog, I took the time to make a little blogging schedule for myself, and I'm doing a pretty good job of following it, so far.  I want to continue posting about nail polish from time to time, so I'm making an effort to actually photograph what ends up on my nails.  It's a bit of a challenge, since the dry winter weather is being very hard on my hands, but with a constant supply of hand creams I think I can muddle through.

For Valentine's Day nails, I immediately gravitate towards red.  I've seen some tutorials for making your own nail stickers using nail polishes and stamping tool, so I decided to give that a try (on a rather small scale) for this manicure.  I like the contrast between the glittery background and the creamy red hearts... looks rather like the packaging on a nice big box of chocolates!

For this design, I used:
Revlon Colorstay Basecoat
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Rapid Red
China Glaze Ring in the Red
Essence Stamping Plate
Essence Stamp Me! White
NYC Grand Central Station topcoat 


  1. Timelessly lovely nails! I've sporting red, as I'm sure scores of gals are, today as well.

    Have an awesome Valentine's Day, dear Frances!
    ♥ Jessica
