Manicure Monday (89): Valentine’s Day Edition

Hi, everyone! I don’t actually have a bookish manicure for you today. I  probably won’t have time to do proper book nails for a week or two and decided that I’d show you my Valentine’s Day nails this week instead. I don’t usually do holiday nails but I felt the urge to do something bright and fun for Valentine’s Day. I know people have mixed feelings about V-Day, but I happen to love it. I spent the evening with friends, Indian food and The Kingsman. Colin Firth in a suit is as good as it sounds. I am not going… Read more »
