I really don’t get into celebrating Valentine’s Day. I just don’t see the point…of any of it. I remember getting all bent out of shape at my college boyfriend for giving me a tiny Grocery Store cake one Valentine’s Day. It wasn’t a money thing – it was a lazy thing – he obviously put zero thought into it. I was right to be mad, because he put zero effort into our relationship the rest of the time, too. To this day, I stand by my anger, because it’s really about how your partner treats you every day. My anger was a culmination of YEARS of disappointment. Strangely enough, my husband and I usually don’t even bother to celebrate Valentine’s Day (except when we do), at least not with flowers or candy…wink, wink.
I will, however, do my nails for Valentine’s Day. I decided on Jelly Belly x Sally Hansen Insta Dri in “Strawberry Cheesecake”. It’s different sizes of hot pink metallic glitter in a milky light pink base. It’s very similar to “Buttered Popcorn”.
I started with Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat. I got fairly full coverage with two coats, but you can definitely still see my nail line. I decided to go all matte with Glisten & Glow Matte Top Coat – my nails looked like Jawbreakers.
I wonder if I can figure out the base shade from Sally Hansen that these glitters were in – it’s almost exactly my skin tone.
