Love is in the Air

First of all I'd like to greet everyone a HAPPY HEARTS DAY!

As we all know, today is February 14 2011, Valentines Day. For those who don't know what Valentines Day is, here's a quick review on its history.

Saint Valentine's Day, commonly shortened to Valentine's Day, is an annual commemoration held on February 14 celebrating love and affection between intimate companions.The day is named after one or more early Christian martyrs, Saint Valentine, and was established by Pope Gelasius I in 500 AD. It was deleted from the Roman calendar of saints in 1969 by Pope Paul VI, but its religious observance is still permitted. It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines"). The day first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.

Modern Valentine's Day symbols include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards.

So in lieu of Heart's Day, I made some cute designs on my nail. Yeah I know polka dots is for New Year but then its red, so I guess its still Valentine-ish right? Haha

Polka Dots~ yay!

I used a red nail polish for the base. For the polka dots, I used black and white nail polishes and alternated the design. It was quite easy to do and I think it ended up pretty well.

I think this will last for a week or so. As for today, I don't have any plans yet. I'll just go with the flow and see what happens. Surpirses could just be around the corner :)


How about you? What are your plans for today?
