I love any excuse to do a bit of nail art and Valentine's Day is no exception, despite the fact that Nick and I don't actually do anything for it! I've tried to keep these designs quite subtle (partly because I'm not amazing at nail art haha) but still in the spirit of things! I know most of them are typically red, but it's Valentine's Day so what else did you expect?
I think this one is my favourite design. You could use any red, but I used Technic in Fire Engine Red then drew on the hearts with a white Barry M nail art pen. I think it's quite endearing that they're not all that neat (or at least that's what I like to tell myself to make myself feel better!).
This is a really nice design when done properly - this was my first try so it didn't turn out amazingly, but I look forward to giving it another go! I used Barry M gelly nail paint in Coconut and a red Rio nail art pen.
Nice and simple one now - I actually did a rather complicated procedure of cutting out a template and painting the red over that so that I could do the white heart straight onto my nail rather than on top of the red polish. Probably not worth the hassle, I'm sure it would work just as well painted straight on top! I used the same Technic polish and Barry M nail art pen as in the first design.
Wooo it's not red! The base colour is Collection in Champagne and I dotted on the border with a Barry M nail art pen in black and for the heart used a red Rio nail art pen.
Will you be painting your nails for Valentine's Day? I'd love to see some other designs!
