Valentine Nails #1: Candy Hearts

Wow, I can't believe we're onto the second month of 2013! February is the month of love and I guess it's time for some lovey dovey nail art. This first nail art of the Valentine's series is yummy, colorful candy hearts. I did a variation of this last year and it turned out pretty well. So I decided to do a more refined version of it along with a tutorial. It's with a combination of stamping (to save time) and free-hand. I did two versions of it just to inspire a few options. You can definitely add to it! 

Check out the tutorial after the jump!


  • Black Polish
    • Julep "Brandt"
  • White Polish
    • Sally Hansen "White On"
  • Pink Polish
    • Julep "Reese"
  • Blue Polish
    • Julep "Jessica"
  • Purple Polish
    • Julep "Renee"
  • Green Polish
    • Julep "Courteney"
  • Yellow Polish
    • Julep "Alma" 
  • Silver Polish
    • Julep "Harley"
  • Konad Stamping Set
  • Konad M73 Stamping Plate
  • Konad Special Black Polish
  • Dotter
  • Nail Art Brush 


  1. Paint your nails with white polish and allow it to try. Using your Konad kit and M73 plate, transfer the heart image to your finger tips. 
  2. Next using either a dotter or nail art brush, fill in the hearts and background in different colors.
  3. Since the black stamped image is rather faint, use a black polish to outline the hearts.
  4. Next use a silver polish and outline the bottom of the tip to create more definition. 
Option: Skip the white polish and use clear polish instead.
