Love Is On the Nails

Apologies for slacking in the nail art department since, um summer it seems. I haven’t been motivated (or able to find the time) to do anything other than simply painting them a solid color.

But, Valentine’s Day served up a cure for all that.

All it takes is the right color combo and easy nail art…et voila. Love is in the air and on the nails.

I promise this is super easy, all you do is paint hearts a bunch of different sizes on each nail, and switch them up between a bright red and bright light pink color and background. Throw in a fun glitter/hologram accent nail. Muwah. I love how it turned out.

So, if you want to give it a shot, which I suggest doing, maybe even while enjoying an adult beverage and watching a rom-com…here you go.

Easy Valentine Nails.

Colors used: Zoya  Love (hologram red),  Yohanna (bright pink) and Alora (red)

Tools, dotting tool (you can also use a ball point pin or end of a bobby pin) and tooth pick. 

Nail art hearts:

• Paint two dots right next to each other so they’re barely touching.

• Grab a toothpick or a small brush and paint a short line down past the side of each dot, angled to meet together to make the letter v/the point of the heart.

(One of my favorite nail artists, Hang Nguyen shows it perfectly here, Note: Her Nail Art Deck is a must too for anyone looking for fun and easy nail art tutorials. She’s pretty much my inspiration for doable quick nail art.)

• Make the heart sizes and placements different on each nail. Do one massive one, one tiny one, a few big ones, or fill it up with tiny ones. Or do them all the same. It’s really a win-win situation.

• Paint one accent nail with a fun red or pink hologram/glitter polish.

• Wait for polish to dry then seal it all with a glossy topcoat. This step makes it also look polished and like it’s a sticker or something.

Donezo. Ditch the fuzzy socks and rock open-toed fuzzy slippers for the next week or so, and try your best to not pick any of the loveliness off.

Or that’s just what I’m doing.
