Valentine's Day Nails!

Happy Valentine's Day!  

Whether you're spending the day with someone special or appreciating your own company, heading out or staying at home, I hope you're having a wonderful day.  Personally, I'll be spending the evening watching one of the new episodes of Midsomer Murders with a warm pineapple, sweetcorn and mushroom pizza to keep me company!  Having said that, I love any reason for celebration and Valentine's Day is no exception.. so out comes the Mavala Red Diamond nail colour!      























In my opinion, if you're going to paint your nails red, don't settle for a faint cranberry shade that looks as though it might just disappear altogether and instead go the extra mile and opt for a deep blood red shade featuring a mass of glitter!  I opted to test the colour on a practice wheel as for now I am wearing Plum's The Word by Sally Hansen.  I absolutely adore this striking colour by Mavala as it pretty much refuses to go unnoticed and I can see it contrasting really well with darker winter looks.

























With love,

Gabrielle x

    1. Mavala is probably my favourite nail brand because they really do wear well, particularly the glitter range. Having said that, a top coat is vital, just as with any other brand! :)
