Valentine XO Manicure | The Proper Pinwheel

So here’s the thing. I’m not stylish. And I don’t really have the time to head out and get regular manicures.  (I don’t have the time to have regular showers, but I’m not telling you that…) In my world, having painted nails is such a luxury. I’ve only ever had two manicures in my life! IN MY LIFE!!!

One of my resolutions for the new year was to take a few moments every now and again and do something for myself. What did I decide to do? I decided to paint my nails to honor the upcoming holiday of love. And I wanted to share this little valentine XO manicure with you. Valentine XO Manicure | The Proper Pinwheel

I’ll be straight and tell you that this was so ridiculously easy. Even the pictures of my right hand don’t look half bad! You can give your nails some love, too!

You’ll need:

  • hot pink nail polish
  • white acrylic paint
  • super thin paint brush or toothpick

Paint nails with two layers of pink and allow to dry. Dip the paintbrush or toothpick into the white acrylic paint and draw out some little x’s and o’s on each nail! You can make them big or tiny. You can draw a little heart. You can draw whatever your heart desires, my friends.

I loved waking up to this little pop of color this morning. I’m super easy to please. I mean, I eat at McDonald’s every year on my birthday so OF COURSE I’m easy to please! ;)

If you end up painting your nails like this for V-day, then please share on Instagram (@properpinwheel) and tag me! I’d love to see!
