Operations associate, Loren, has a thing for nails—and we can’t blame her. We love reading about new finishes and fun techniques, so we thought we’d give her a weekly slot on our blog to wax poetic about all things manicure (and pedicure!) related. Check back every Thursday for Nailing It, Birchbox’s dedicated polish series.
Happy Valentine’s Day Birchboxers! Whether you love celebrating the holiday in all its pink glory or prefer to let the bouquets and conversation hearts pass quietly into the night, there’s no better way to make your day brighter than by giving yourself a little love—especially on your digits!
The Operations Team has been sporting some great nail art and polish shades that perfect for V-day lately. Heading to a fancy dinner or just making dinner at home with your beau? We’ve got you covered! Here are a few lacquers and ideas for some inspiration:
If you’re feeling extra feminine, Alexandra has the perfect polish combination for you. To start, she used Essie Lady Like as the base for her manicure. You must move quickly though! Before her base color dried, she sprinkled some iridescent body glitter on her nails for an ethereal finish!
Many of you may already be acquainted with this special lady who spends her time chatting with you on Twitter and Facebook. Operations Associate Sarah is going for more of a night out look with this bold bronze hue called Model Behavior from Color Club.
In the spirit of Valentine’s Day and Women’s Heart Health Month, I decided to go with a classic red. One of my favorite polishes of all time, Zoya Sooki, is really the most vibrant red polish I have come across. You cannot go wrong with this color!
You’ve seen what the Ops girls are wearing on their digits for the holiday. What polish shades or nail art have you chosen for your manicure today? And better yet, what plans do you have?!
