A Dark Valentine gradient

Well, today was day 2 of wear red stuff at Macy's for heart disease awareness, so I wanted to do something different than the traditional red mani.

I started with a coat of Sinful Black on Black, my new FAVORITE. The formula was butter. Smooth, easy to spread, minimal cleanup, LOVE. Then about 3/4 down I did a layer of Confetti Masquerade Ball, very sheer almost black with red shimmer. And theeen I added about halfway down a layer of China Glaze Ruby Pumps, red jelly with red sparkle. Topped it off with some Wet N Wild Prancer. And a little Nutra Nail instant Smudge Repair to use as a gradation liquid to blur it all together.

And then with Love My Nails Crazy for You hearts.

Mmmm. Kinda reminds me of red blood cells and Alice in Wonderland and Dexter. Mmmm.
