Valentine's Hearts (Tutorial)

February 06, 2013

Here's a really cute heart nail art design, perfect for Valentine's Day :) 

What you'll need
- Base coat
- Top coat
- A pale base colour
- 3 other colours for hearts
- Black acrylic paint (or polish)
- A dotting tool
- A thin detail brush

Start by applying a base coat:

Then paint all of your nail with you chosen base colour:

Using a dotting tool and your 3 other colours, (you can you a nail art brush, but I found it easier with a dotting tool), create small hearts randomly place across all of your nails:

Then using black acrylic paint (or black polish), create a dashed outline around each of the hearts:

Finish with a top coat:

P.S. If you're not too good at painting small detail using your non-writing hand (like me), you can leave your other hand just the base colour, that's what I did.


The products I used:
Base coat - Nail Envy by OPI
Top coat - Good To Go by Essie
Purple - Berry Icecream by Barry M
Pink - Bright Pink by Barry M
Yellow - Lemon Icecream by Barry M
Blue - Aquadelic by China Glaze
Black - Black acrylic paint by Wilko
Dotting Tool - eBay
Detail Brush - eBay
