Valentines NOTD AND What Makeup I'll Be Wearing

Im not one of those girls who loves all the cheesy side to Valentines Day. No teddies or chocolates thanks very much! But I do love a day just dedicated to spending time with David and appreciating each other. Of course I think this should happen all year round too, but I do like to make a little bit of an effort come 14th of Feb, any reason to celebrate and make a change from day to day life is fine by me!

I saw it as the perfect time to try out my new Justin Bieber polish called Step To The Beat Of My Heart which is by Nicole by OPI. I didnt buy it just because it was by Justin Bieber mind, but because it is so girly and cute and very unique. I used Barry M's Strawberry Ice Cream as my basecoat (also really gorgeous just on its own, it looked so good I was debating whether or not to even put the hearts on top)...

And this is how it turned out! It took a lot of time and patience to get the hearts out of the bottle and into position on my nails. You kind of have to scoop them out of the bottle with the brush and dot them onto the nails then move them a little bit, but I think it all worked out lovely in the end. Sorry for the bad flash photo but its night time and I really wanted to show you now before Valentines is over. Of course Ill also be using this polish through the rest of the year, its too pretty not to!

Im going to be going very much for pinks tomorrow. I was debating on a red lip but feel pinks will match my polish more and will be more day-time appropriate. So heres some of what I plan to wear...

MAC's Dollymix Blush - Such a stunning sparkly bright pink. The photo doesnt do it justice at all but its just perfection.

Dior Addict Lipstick in Diorkiss - One of my absolute favourites, a lovely way to wear bright pink through the day as its still pigmented and long wearing but also relatively sheer. Not to mention using it makes me feel a little bit grown up and special.

Avon Glazewear Shine Lipgloss in Pink Watermelon - I just chose this as it compliments the lipstick perfectly and its a lovely gloss as are all the Avon ones Ive tried, worth a look if you havent already!

Of course Ill be wearing other make-up, foundation etc. But I just wanted to share these with you as I thought they were perfect for Valentines. Ill be wearing them with a simple light eyeshadow like All That Glitters with a flick of gel liner, simple and classic.

Hope you all have a lovely day tomorrow whether youre pampering yourself or spending it with a loved one!
