Elephant Valentine

Wow where did the week go? Feels like it just flew by!

I have some cute nail art to show you today! My daughter and I love elephants so I did these cute nails and she loved them.

I used Fresh Paint polish. Fresh Paint is available at Five Below stores. Let me just say I had never been to Five Below before! I used to think it was a store that sold like winter gear and stuff, you know because five below zero lol. Until I noticed last year that my nail friends would say they bought polish at Five Below. It's called Five Below because everything is $5 or below! Duh! So there's my funny of the day!

I just discovered a Five Below opened like 10 minutes from me so I was very excited! I went and it's awesome! I need to go back soon. 

So Let's take a look at todays nails.

Fresh Paint Passion Fruit

I did two coats of Fresh Paint 'Passion Fruit' and made some small hearts with glitter polish towards the top of my nails and top coated. On my ring finger I did a little dry brushing using red and pink polish. 

To make the elephant I once again used my DRK Nails pink mat to make it into a decal. I applied clear polish and waited for it to dry completely. Then I made several attempts drawing elephants with black acrylic paint. When I was finally happy with one I filled it in with grey polish and a bit of pink for the ear and cheek. I added a tiny red heart above his trunk. I applied clear polish over the image and waited for it to dry.

To apply the decal I cut the sides a bit and placed it on my nail smoothing it down. I cleaned up around my nail with a brush dipped in acetone. That melted the excess decal off. I finished off with one coat of Seche Vite top coat.

I loved these so much I was so sad to take them off. If I left on every design I loved I would probably only post once a week or every two weeks!

Hope you like these. Thank you for reading!
Happy weekend!
