Happy Valentine's Day!

Hi everyone!  I hope you are all enjoying your Valentine's Day doing whatever it is that makes you happy.  If that is spending the day with your loved one(s), going out for a romantic evening, or celebrating with friends, I hope it is a great one!  And for those of you who do not enjoy this holiday, do whatever it is that makes you happy - celebrate being you!

Today's theme for the February Nail Art Challenge is "match OOTD (outfit of the day)."  Unfortunately my husband has to work late tonight so we will not be celebrating the holiday, but I still chose to wear festive colors - on my nails!  I decided to go with a simple chevron mani using a gorgeous lilac and creamy pink-fuchsia.

I used Essie Sugar Daddy as my base and then topped that with China Glaze Fairy Dust for an added touch of sparkle.  I created this chevron look using scotch tape to achieve the clean lines.  The beautiful lilac is Duri Of The Beaten Path and this gorgeous pink-fuchsia is Pink Power, also by Duri.  This was my first time using Duri polishes, which I received in a swap from a friend on Instagram.  I am IN LOVE with these polishes.  The application was so smooth and the opacity was on point.  Both colors achieved complete opacity in one coat.  I have a few other Duri polishes to try and I can't wait to use them.  Here is another look at the completed look.

And here is a bottle shot of the polishes I used in this manicure.

What do you all think of this look?  And what are you wearing on your nails today?  I'd love to hear, as well as what you are doing to celebrate V-day!  Leave me some comments below :)
