#MonthlyMani: Valentine's Day

This is my first post since baby girl was born.  I can't believe it's been 3 weeks already!  Time flies when you're sleepy and trying to figure everything out about having a newborn.  I promise to have a post up about her with pics soon. :)  In the meantime, this month's mani theme is Valentine's Day! 

I decided to switch it up from the usual pink that I do for V-day and add some animal print.  I also opted to do this because I had some leopard stick-on nail polish - let's be honest, trying to wait for regular nail polish to dry while taking care of a demanding newborn is not a good idea. :) 

{Kiss Silver, Sally Hanson Leopard gel strips, Kiss Red}

I only used the stick-on nails.  I've never tried the gel part so I'm not sure how well that works.  I added a red heart on my ring finger to make them more "Valentinesy" and because I love the way red looks with leopard.  I also loved the way the silver polish looked last time I used it so I decided to outline the heart in silver to make it pop.  I'm not sure if I like it better with or without the silver outline.

I hope you all have a fun time celebrating V-day!  Check out my post from last year for some outfit inspiration.
