CATRICE Alluring Reds Pleasure of Temptation and a little heart nail art Tutorial

Hi guys ! Happy Sunday. I had a few Valentines inspired posts to share with you , so thought it's only appropriate to squeesh in an extra post before the 14th .

Catrice was kind enough to send me this duo set from their new Alluring Reds collection to come up with a fun and easy nail art look - I will be sharing another design before Valentines day on my Instagram account HERE , so remember to keep a look out for that too. But for the one I'm sharing I wanted to keep it plain and simple and wearable . I prefer a simple accent nail nail art for everyday wear , and not too over the top design on my nails - so for me it's the perfect combo. The colour I was send was the combo 03 Pleasure of Temptation . 

This is also a duo polish with one silver polish , and a jelly looking polish that goes with it. In the bottle the colour looked like a deep red - which I was a little scared off as I'm not really a fan of red nail polish - personally it makes me feel too grown up. But on the nail the red translated as a gorgeous deep darker pink, and I instantly fell in love. This colour is much more jelly looking than the L'oreal version , it really looks so squishy. 

As you will see in the tutorial picture , the silver is also a much lighter and a more sheer version. Both bottles are individual bottles (same as any normal Catrice polish , all difference is they come together in a little plastic box and the normal black red has a light grey print on with the words Alluring Red . All and all the bottles looks super sophisticated ) 

I am seriously in love with this nail art design and colour . So onto the nail art look :

And onto my little tutorial for you guys -

1. Use the Silver Base Colour on all your nails . Proceed to use the 03 Pleasure of Temptation on the rest of the nails excluding the accent nail.
2. Get a dotting tool and get ready to use the bigger side,
3. Using the bigger side make two bigger dots on your nails.
4. Now get ready to use the smaller side of the dotting tool
5. Connect the two big dots and voila , a little heart. 

I hope you enjoyed the little nail art post , and enjoyed the nail look. 

There are 3 sets of these polishes in the collection , and they retail for R89,95 per set.

Keep an eye out for more Valentines day inspired posts on Tuesday / Thursday and Saturday .
