These are my nails today after my attempt at valentines hearts went wrong - I didn't have a steady enough hand! These took forever and needed quite a steady hand too for the black lines...
I started by drawing on the black line as a guide using a nail-art pen. I then filled in each segment with:
To Buy Or Not To Buy (the lilac) Essie
Heartbeat (pale blue) 17
Miss Sunshine (my new yellow) Accessorize
I probably should have used a small nail-art brush but I just used the brushes in the bottles. I needed 2/3 coats of each. I didn't worry too much about being exact, it was okay to go over the black lines cos I was planning to repaint them again at the end, which I did - argh so hard to be neat with a nail art pen without it blobbing everywhere!
Still - I like the outcome (if you don't look too closely!)
Still planning to do something heartsy for valentines day, and use my caviar beads at the weekend! Expect more posts soon!
