valentine's series - fractured heart

Hey everyone! Today's mani isn't as morose as the title sounds...
I used a polish from Color Club's Fractured Collection to make a cute crackle V-day mani!

Color Club crackles are the best, hands down. They are so easy to use!
There is no "add 3 drops of thinner and shake the bottle until your arm falls off and apply it over polish that you let dry for precisely 117 seconds and then apply the crackle in short strokes so it will actually crack."
There is no fooling around. You let your polish dry, you apply the crackle, it cracks great every time.

For this design I started with a base of Color Club - French Tip which is a great 2-coat white.
I used Color Club - Crush On You for the great pink crackle.
Using Color Club - Where's The Soiree? I painted on the hearts on my thumb and created the heart-window on my ring finger. (You paint a heart, and then fill in the outside of the heart, not the inside. It's easy!)

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
I still have a few cutesy V-day manis left to show you and I'll keep posting them despite the fact that V-day will be over. You can keep them in mind for your mani next V-day! Haha!
