Valentine's Day nails #5: Hearts with Sweet Dreams

Hello everyone!

One of the manicures that I wanted to recreate was The Beauty Department's "Wasi Tape Glitter Heart" manicure. But I didn't have wasi tape, and wanted to try my new nail polish (Pieces Lilac Rose), and saw that the color of Deborah Lippmann Sweet Dreams is very similar. So I ended up with this monochrome fuchsia Valentine's Day mani. I used this step-by-step photo instruction from The Beauty Department, but I used different colors, and put one heart on each nail. Maybe I'll try to make an exact copy some time too.

I used:
Deborah Lippmann Sweet Dreams    (1 thick coat)
Pieces Lilac Rose    (I used 2 coats, but this is nearly a one- coater!)
Tape    (I made it less sticky before using it on the nails)

As I have mentioned earlier, Pieces and Deborah Lippmann are not tested on animals :-D

This was used to make 'Hearts with Sweet Dreams'

Wearing this made me realize how much I've missed Sweet Dreams. I don't know why I haven't used it more often. Maybe because I often use my untrieds?
