I cannot believe V-Day is already less than a week away. Where the heck is 2016 going - is it being sucked into some time vortex??
I suppose I should start rolling in those Valentine's manis and such. I'll start today with the Smokey Mountain Lacquers Valentine's Duo:
The duo is comprised of a lilac purple holo called "Heartbreaker"...
...and a lovely pink holo glitter bomb with a blue shimmer called "Put A Ring On It."
Heartbreaker went on smoothly, only requiring 2 coats for opacity. It dried a bit textured, so a good topcoat smoothed everything out nicely. Put A Ring On It spread out wonderfully for a glitterbomb offering excellent coverage! Two coats for complete opacity for this one, and it also dried just a bit textured and required topcoat to make it smooth and really make that holo pop! The hearts on my middle and ring fingers were made using Valentine's day vinyls from Sweet Lacquer.
All in all this duo is adorable! I like that it is a less conventional duo, meaning it's not strictly pink or red. I love that the lilac is a color suited for many occasions and holidays (I can definitely see it used in an Easter mani), and that the pink is a softer, more vintage pink than an in-your-face Barbie pink. Way more versatile (and tolerable for me :P ).
You can pick up a full size or mini size of this duo here - there aren't many sets left! You can also follow Smokey Mountain Lacquers through these links:
