Mani-Monday Simple Valentines Day Nail Tutorial

Hi lovelies
 
Second post of the day! A simple but pretty Valentines Nail Mini tutorial :)
 
I love Nail Art and I often sit playing around with polishes and stripers, dotters and gems etc... but today I thought I would do something super easy.
 
You will need
Pink Nail Polish
Some Nail Art/Crafting Stones, Gems, Beads or Pearls of your choice
Some Nail Art Glue(any brand or a clear nail varnish if you have none, please note that clear varnish will make it stick but it wont hold and last as long!)
Top Coat
 
Step 1 - Prep your nails, remove and previous colour from your nails and file if needed.
Step 2 - Apply your first coat of Pink Nail polish, leave to dry for a minute before applying a second coat, repeat again if needed.
I went for a Nude sheer Pink, mine is Je T'aime by Orly.
Step 3 - Apply a coat of Top Coat. 
Step 4 - Add a small blob of Nail glue to your finger nail of choice (I chose my ring finger and thumb)
Step 5 - Add a flat backed Nail decoration on top of the glue and press down firmly and hold in place for 10-20 seconds
Step 6 -Make sure you leave to dry for at least 5 mins before attempting to do anything. This is important, you do not want them coming off as soon as you have finished and then have to do it again!!
 
Will you be doing Valentines Nails?
