“I love you to the moon and back”

My version of cheesy heart-felt valentines nails!

I didn’t want anything red, or pink, or hearty, or girly and shmushy.
Or anything that you ALWAYS see for valentines day when it comes to nail art.
I wanted something different and I’m actually quite pleased with how these came out (for once!) - and I actually painted something for once rather than a pattern!

“I love you to the moon and back” is actually something related to my mum, we used to say it before bed every night when I was little after reading the book Guess How Much I Love You. If you have never read it, or you have children, then you definitely should. Like I said, I wanted something different and valentines day is about showing people you love them right? It doesn’t have to be your boyfriend, fiancé, husband etc.. it can be whoever you want it to be.


Day 4 - Green

Topshop - Jewel in the Crown

These are pretty simple, I also painted a floral pattern on the little and pointer finger, but it looked a bit shit to be honest!
Will add photos of them soon :)

I sponged the different shades of green over the top and then added individual bits of big glitter onto the nails - took me forever!
I’d quite like them if they were a different colour! likewise to the yellow nails, not a fan of green!
