Kleancolor My Valentine

Kleancolor My Valentine is a Mardi Gras combination of glitter – gold, silver and green small hex glitter with regular purple glitter in a clear base.

I finally got to watch the premier of “Nail Files” on Thursday (thank goodness for DVR 🙂 ) and I was inspired by all the glitter, and accent nails! Instead of doing a glittery mani with a glittery accent, I decided to do a muted green creme – Sephora by OPI Caught With My Khakis Down – and use My Valentine as a ring finger accent as a pop of glitz!

I loved the combination of glitz with conservative, trendy creme! My Valentine is a funny name for a glitter that reminds me of roaming down Bourbon Street in New Orleans!

I used two coats of the SOPI color and two coats of My Valentine. I had no application issues, although with longer nails I had to revisit the bottle a couple times per nail because the SOPI bottle was a tiny one from the Safari Luxe four-piece set.

What do you think of My Valentine? I’ll have another post about how I spruced this mani up for a second day of wear!

    I bought Caught With My Khakis Down a couple of weeks ago. Love the glitter top coat. Really pretty.

    I love that the neutral creme lets the glitter explode. You made an excellent combo! That is an odd name. Makes me think that it was a mistake.

      Thanks, Kimberly! I know, I wonder if it’s meant to be My Mardi Gras instead LOL
