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!


 

Materials
  • 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 


Instructions:

  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.
