I actually really love this mani! The polish I used for the base of the Hot Topic Blackheart polish "Blood" - doesn't it look just like blood?! The first coat went on a little streaky, and it really looked like blood then. A second coat smoothed it out perfectly. My mother in law picked this up for me for my birthday - I love it because it isn't a color I would've picked up on my own, but I love it! It's also fitting that I wear this polish today, since it's her birthday! The below picture shows it being a bit brighter red than it really is, Blood is definitely more of an oxblood, almost maroon color.
I then used a small dotting tool and an unnamed LA Girl black polish to add the hearts on my accent nail. I think blood and black hearts is pretty "anti-Valentine's day"-y. Or maybe its just kind of emo? Either way, this is a fun mani and I enjoyed doing it, especially since it fell a little out side my comfort zone.
Thank you to everyone for sticking with me through this week of Valentine's Day manis, and I'm sure you're as sick of looking at them as I am! Have a great rest of your weekend!
