Be my Valentine

A sweet and sassy manicure for Valentine's day with all the trimmings and my first try at a gradient nail. I applied the colours to each half of the nails first then I used a cosmetic sponge to create the gradient. Then I added a little sparkle and some sequin-like hearts I just got from to complete the lovey-dovey effect.
