ncLA: Holiday Duo Set Rock 'N' Royalty + Nail Art

Hey everyone! After a few days of taking a bit of a rest from blogging, today I have a few swatches and Valentines Days nail art design, for the first day of February. Last year, in December, I was super excited to win my very first giveaway from @nananailpolish; a set of ncLA Holiday Duo Set: Rock 'n' Royalty.
I can remember the first time, two years ago, when I heard about this brand, and purchased my first polish from them called Poolside Party. Which is a fun peach creme, perfect for the summer.
So I was extremely excited to get this set since I've eyed them for a while.
The holiday duo include a metallic polish and a glitter topper, a perfect gift for that polish fanatic (especially for me...lol). She Will Rock You- is a plum purple metallic with subtle of shimmers throughout the polish. The application was pretty good and only needed two coats for full coverage.
Almost Famous- is a fun combination of glitters from small to large circular and hexagon shapes of colors, a perfect partner for She Will Rock You. I was pleasantly happy with the amount of glitters I had when applying it over the base. 
Of-course, like I mentioned before, Valentines Day is coming soon, and I thought the perfect design to do. I know it is not pink, but it is always great to use different shades for the month. For this look, I wanted to create a heart-like baroque, using the set. First I created a glitter gradient on two of the nails using a make-up sponge.
  Once that was set, with a nail art brush ( Pure Color #10 Detail Brush from Whats Up Nails) using Essie Good as Gold. Lastly, I sealed the nails with H K Girl Top Coat, that's it! Overall I really love how these turned out and the colors all together. Such a romantic and great idea for Valentines. 
Hope all of you enjoyed my post today!
