"But with eyes shut it's you I'm thinking of"

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Its always interesting to see how people react to this day every year whether they are in a relationship or not and how they choose to spend it. Personally I'm just having a quiet one with the boyfriend along with some Dominoes pizza!

People are quick to point out its just like any other day and if you are really truly in love why do people feel the need to make a song and dance about it, a relationship is there 365 days a year not just the 14th February, I agree with this but I really like the fact it is one day that people can stop and maybe appreciate their loved ones a bit more. There's no point going over the top because what's going to happen for the rest of the year?

So, tying in with this I've kept my make-up pretty low key:
With maybe a smidgen more of my tinted lip-balm (Korres in 'quince') and blusher (Natural Collection in 'rosey glow') the eye make-up and foundation is all the same.

However one aspect I have made an effort in is my nails:

Polka dot nail art, ring: H+M

I am no nail art expert and this is my first attempt at anything besides just block colour. I painted the base with  Rimmel 60 seconds nail varnish in '270 shocker' and applied the white polka dots with the tip of a pencil (not very glamorous!!) using white Revlon nail enamel and finished it off with a see through top coat to protect the dots! I'm pretty pleased with the results, obviously a lot cheaper than the nail foil transfers that are popular at the moment which is a cheeky bonus for a student like me!

How is everyone spending their Valentine's? R xxx


  1. ooh your nails are so cute! and you are so very pretty!
    hope you had a lovely valentines day. my boyfriend lives 6 hours away from me so we had a very romantic skype date - i even watched him fold his laundry haha :) x

  2. Your nails are so cute - might have to give this look a go!

  3. Really love the Valentine's nail art! I like to take the time to appreciate my boyfriend a bit more on Valentine's Day but we don't buy each other anything. I think I prefer it that way!
