Valentines Day Nail Art Challenge Day 4 - Cupid's Curse

Today's challenge is Cupid's curse.  I'll be honest, I have no idea why I threw this one in here and it has proved to be the most challenging of them all.  Not because of the skill needed to execute, but because no one knew what the heck to paint!  Me included. 
The first thing I think of for cupid is a naked angel baby with a bow and arrow and some pierced hearts....who thought up this stuff? It's creepy.  So I decided to go with an arrow and some hearts.
What do you think?  Meh, they are not my favorite mani from this challenge, but they will do.  I started with Sally Hansen Blue Away as a base and then sponged on some clouds with Sally Hansen White out, accented with China Glaze White Cap.  Then I pained the arrow with China Glaze Mahogany Magic and Zoya Jinx.  The hearts are Sally Hansen Rapid Red. Arrow tip is Revlon Gold Coin and arrow accents are Sally Hansen Rose Run and Flashy Fuchsia.
Only 2 more challenge days left!!
