Cartoon Hearts

Purchased By Shelby Lou 

Hey guys! Buffalo is being pounded by more snow this week WHY GOD WHY. Anyway, may I shamelessly direct you to my Blog Sale? I am trying so hard to destash and keep the stuff I absolutely love... and, uh, make some money back to buy more things I absolutely love. I only sell things I have purchased myself, samples are donated or given away. Thanks!

I loved my Faded Hearts from Saturday so much I decided to use them again but for much different look. I just received Serum No.5 Sweet Nothings, an exclusive for February through an indie box. This is my first Serum No.5 and I was so delighted when I saw this lovely white crelly. It was inspired by conversation hearts and you can see all of those pastel satin colors, as well as metallic glitters and this amazing shimmer. I did three thin coats. For me the glitters tended to get stuck together at one end of my nail or the other so I had to smoosh them around a bit. I wore Sweet Nothings alone for a day so I finsihed it with two thick coats of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.

I used my heart image from Vivid Lacquer 009 stamping with my favorite black stamper, Rica Blackout. I love how bold the hearts are over Sweet Nothings--it looks like a Valentine I would have gotten as a kid in Elementary school hehe.

Overall I am pleased with my first Serum No.5 experience and I'm already plotting a proper purchase of their unique colors. When I went to bed the first night I wore Sweet Nothings I had forgotten about the most fun feature of the brand--glow in the dark! I was startled at how bright blue my nails were in bed. And I only lost like 5 minutes of sleep admiring them in the dark.
