Mickey Mouse & Minnie Mouse Romance Mani

4:00 AM

It’s officially February.  You know what that means, it’s time for Valentine’s Day.  Even though I’m in a relationship I’m really not a big fan of Valentine’s Day.  Now it’s not to the point where I won’t be celebrating because I already got boyfriend his presents weeks ago.  I feel like it’s just a holiday for retailers to make up for their losses with holiday returns.  It’s another money making holiday.  Remember, this is coming from a NON single girl so it’s not that I’m bitter and calling it “Single’s Awareness Day” (as I have in the past).  You should tell your significant other that you love and care about them every day.  Even if it’s not physically said, your actions speak louder.  Even if you tell him/her hey let me wash the dishes for a change, that little action can make a huge difference.
Anyway, now onto the actual point of this post, the nail art tutorial part.  First of all I used OPI as the Topcoat, Sally Hansen Maximum Strength Base Coat, China Glaze (red), and two way nail art pens for the designs.

First you want to make sure you file your nails and apply Sally Hansen Maximum Strength prior to applying the red color.  This protects my nails and helps with not just strength but prevents more yellowing.

Now you want to add the black for designs.  You will be filling in with white later so make sure you make it a decent size so you can add the white and still have it look the same.  The main focus of this design is Mickey and Minnie kissing so make sure you pay close attention to them.

Now you can fill in with white.  Of course make sure you leave enough black to give it an illusion of an outline.  Once they are completely dry add your topcoat!
Voila you’re finished!

Now remember at the beginning of this post when I talked about how your loved ones should express how much you mean to them all the time not just on Valentine’s Day?  Here is a perfect example.  I was painting my nails and boyfriend decided to surprise me.  I heard his car (he’s into cars too so let’s just say his exhaust is racecar loud) and then texted him asking if he was just at my house.  His response was maybe but just make sure you go to your car before you go to sleep.  There was a bouquet of pink roses on my car and he texted me and said they didn’t have any stargazer lilies so I got you pink roses instead I hope that’s ok.  He knows I’m not a huge roses fan and that lilies are my top favorite but I must say regardless of what flowers they are just the fact that he left them for me because he knew I was busy was adorable.  I’m not saying that your significant other needs to do this or buy you flowers all the time but every once in a while a random surprise for no reason at all is better than one day (called Valentine’s Day)  where society makes you spend crazy amounts of money on flowers and chocolate.  To some people it may be cheesey or whatever but I never had a boyfriend before the one now bring me flowers for no reason. 

Anyway, enough of me complaining about Valentine’s Day haha, for those of you who love it I genuinely wish you a great one even though it’s next week!
