The pink is the Miss Sporty Crush on You, 3D texture in pink bloom. Just like the orange shade in this look, it is beautifully shimmery & glittery and dries almost instantly. It has a very strange texture almost like a gentle sandpaper which I don't mind as I always wear topcoat anyway.

The glitter over the top is the gorgeous gold sprinkling of Barry M in 'yellow topaz'. One of my best nail polish purchases, it steps up almost any nail look.
The 2 together create a warm, Princessy pink that's not too pale and not to bright. Even though I'm wearing a ton of glitter, the rosy colour and the shimmery texture of the pink tone it down so that it's less "I'm-off-to-the-roller-disco-to-dance-to-some-80's-hits" and more "don't-my-fingers-look-like-gorgeous-treats-that-should-be-on-display-in-a-Parisienne-patisserie?"
The think I love most about going all-out girly with the pink and the glitter is that it catches my eye when I least expect it - when I pick up my spoon to indulge in something yummy or my boyfriend takes hold of my hand across a candlelit table (come on, this is a Valentine's post after all!) or even tap tap tapping out a blog post right now on the keyboard.

Have a wonderful Valentine's day whether you're feeding eachother chocolate covered strawberries, out for speed dating to meet someone new or having a girls' night with wine, chocolate and giggles.
Stay loving and lovable
