Hot Red With Lace

Yesterday I suffered from a mild case of blahs and today, I’m digging me some hot red with lace! Yes, I’m talking about Valentines. No, I’m not dressing up in red lips with lacy lingerie. Who does that (anymore after marriage AND a baby)?!

It’s all about NAILS. I think one of the easiest and most affordable way to make a gal feel pretty, confident, and happy is getting her nails did. That was the first thing I did yesterday when I was feeling just a little bit sluggish. Removed my dark winter nails and opted for an uplifting, vibrant pink.

This morning my sister-in-law dropped by and brought us some treats for Chinese New Year.  We chatted and I painted her nails hot red. Added lace decals to some of her fingers and she was well prepared for Valentines!

    Cute idea with the lace and red! I’m a nail pick-me-up kind of gal as well.

    Love this- wish I was able to paint my nails without it looking like a 5 year old did it! ha

  3. Hi! I love the look of these nails, great idea to do every other nail. I have wondered about using those “decal” type things….. How well do they hold up compared to regular nail polish? Thanks for the post!

    What a perfect idea! Love the red/lace
    You never end up having enough nail decals for full sets anyway (why!?), so every other nail will make use of the whole pack.
    Happy <3 day

  5. What a nice pick-me-up. My daughters are doing a newsprint transfer trick on their nails these days; I should get the baby to post hers.

    Glad you’re feeling perkier and you’ve reminded me that doing my nails will be a good way to get through yet another Southern Ontario snow day!

  6. love how you alternated red and lace instead of having just one fingernail with the lace pattern. will have to try. thanks for sharing!

  7. Love the mix-match of nail decals and polish. What a great idea to add a bit of sexiness to class. Hope you are feeling better.

  8. Oh wow I love this idea, unfortunately I’m afraid of chipping my nail polish especially with how hard I type on the keyboard daily

  9. I had those exact stick-on nail patterns in my hand the other day and put them down since I wasn’t sure about how they’d look. Turns out they look fantastic!

    I’ve never really tried those “sticky on nails” but these look awesome – might give them a go! xx

  11. I guess I “caught” your Blahs from yesterday, I’m in such a funk but unfortunately my nails are a MESS and nothing so beautiful would help me today and my winter dry skin. :/ Thanks for your beautiful pictures though, they always make me feel better. *Muah!
