hearts and pearls
Did you know that February in Finnish is helmikuu which translates to Pearlmonth (or pearl moon, if you want to be more archaic)? The name comes from the little ice droplets that freeze onto the branches of trees and that can look like pearls. There aren't really any pearls as such yet but the trees are looking quite snowy, icy and pretty!
I had these icy pastel heart nails last week, but if you're inclined that way they could be nice for Valentine's, I think. I'm still more into Valentine's Day as its Finnish version, Friends' Day, when you can remember all your friends and loved ones. Either way, you can have wee hearts on your nails! This Lumene nail polish is the prettiest with its white and pale pink hearts and confetti. I've paired it with Mavala's Miami and a random Lumene nail polish (that I unfortunately threw away already so don't know what it was called..) here. Quite a unique notd since there's no recreating this due to me being rash and thoughtless, but thought I'd share it anyway!
