I will be starting to post my Valentines Day manicures, so we'll start with number #1. I was inspired by THIS mani by the Nailasaurus.
This look is very simple and the exact definition of vampy in my opinion. Its red, dark & lacy, I'm sure it fits someones ideal Valentines Day description ;)
I used China Glaze Merry Berry as my base and Stamped using Konad Plate M 57 and Konad Special Black Stamping Polish.
Merry Berry is a beautiful vampy red, I've heard this colour described as Oxblood. The formula is wonderful and pigmented, but I got some cuticle flooding (my mistake- not a fault of the polish consistency) and due to the pigmentation It was impossible to clean up appropriately.
Here's a swatch of China Glaze Merry Berry on its own:

If you plan on dressing up in black, I can totally see this polish finishing up your look quite nicely!
Thanks for stopping by today! Stay tuned for more V-day Manis!!
