I wanted something festive and fun and feminine for Valentine's Day and even though red is the official Valentine's Day color, it can also look very Christmassy to me. And since Christmas was just a few months ago, I thought I'd go with pinks.

I originally planned on doing a pink French manicure but last minute I randomly created these easy little half-hearts which make me smile every time I look down - and kind of remind me of when I was about 13. But regardless, 35 going on 13 just for a few days never hurt anybody, right?


Here's what I used:

* 3 coats of OPI ~ Pinking of You
* A very old watermelon pink Wet 'n' Wild {remains one of my favorite pinks} Essie ~ Watermelon is pretty close.
* Sephora OPI ~ Traffic-Stopper Copper


And here's how I did it:

* You're basically making an X but very close together. Make your second mark a bit shorter than your first to give your hearts some depth.

* I added glitter to the hearts on my ring fingers but all of them glittered up would be fun as well.
