I was browsing Pinterest the other day when I stumbled on an adorable photo of a pedicure that I just had to try out for myself.

Today's look is colourful, bright and fun and a great way to start off the "month of love" :)

(Fair warning this post does include a couple photos of pedicures)

Leave it to Pinterest to lead me far away from the original source. Luckily with some googling I discovered that ESNAIL is a "celebrity favourite nail salon with seven locations in Japan that recently opened a location in Los Angeles". Now, I still have no idea which salon this particular design came from and I browsed the ESNAIL-LA Facebook and Instagram to attempt to find it but found only manicure photos. So the best that I can do is to direct you to either of the links above to check out their work :)

Now, as for the polishes involved in this look:
Pale purple: American Apparel L'Esprit
Pink (although orange/red in photos): American Apparel Pink Ladies
Green: piCture pOlish Honey Dew
Black: OPI Black Onyx
White: OPI Alpine Snow

I used a small nail art brush for the stripes and a dotting tool/nail brush for the heart :)

I cannot believe that January has come and gone already... are you guys sick of the valentine's manicures yet? I still have a few designs up my sleeve leading up to the "big day" (Although I will be spending that particular day in school and later on a flight to visit my sister).

Stay tuned... there are great things to come on my blog for this month :)
