NOTW: Heart-y Hot Pink French Tips + New Giveaway Winners

So this post is a few weeks late. I had these nails mid-January, so I guess it's been about a month. But I think that they're pretty cute, so I decided to share them all with you. I don't know how to make tutorials, but I've included instructions with different views of my left hand. Next time I'll figure out how to do a sort of walk-through. I also decided to rename my posts Nails of the Week instead of Nails of the Day since I have them on for a week or more. (Seems kinda petty but I just wanted to point that out :P)

I always start with a base coat. This time I used The Face Shop's nail strengthener. Then I applied a pearly, translucent pink, also from The Face Shop.

Next, I painted hot pink tips. Again, this was from The Face Shop. Always wait a few minutes in between coats and colors to let the polish dry. This will make the designs more distinct. (This doesn't apply to all manicures, though. Others require you to apply while the coat is still wet.)

Then, using LA Colors Art Deco in white, I painted three hearts on each tip. Uhm, except for the pinky, only two hearts could fit. :)

After everything dried, I sealed my design with an Arezia top coat to make the polish last longer. 

My hearts are all wonky, but I loved this cute, cute design. It's so fun and girly and pink. Surprisingly, despite all the manual labor I do at work, this manicure lasted for more than a week. No major chips, just the usual tip wear I get from handling nails and paint and sand paper and other construction-y materials. 

I hope you can try these! This design was inspired by my former classmate's cute French tips. She also wore hot pink tips back then, only with white dots. I thought that I couldn't make my dots all uniform in size so I used hearts instead. Turned out to be even cuter!

Giveaway update: Kathleen and Bernadette were not able to reply to my emails. Thus, I decided, after four days of waiting for their responses, to draw new winners. Congratulations to Vince Baldonado and Zash Gepana!

I just read your email about me winning your blog a few minutes ago and I was all smiles and I told my mom that I'm going to share it with her but just reading this blog of yours just turned my smiles to nothing.

Oh well, isn't it unfair for not giving at least a week for the winners to reply? But it's still your call.

@Bernadette de Vera Alarilla

Hi Bernadette, I just replied to your email, let's try to work something out. But if you remember the terms and conditions for the giveaway I specified that winners had only 24 hours to reply. I waited a few days in consideration. But anyway, please check your email and let's see if something can be done, okay? Thanks :)
