Shining Heart

Over the past few days, I have gotten requests for the same nail art at the salon by numerous people.

It’s a very cool summer-y look and the colors can work for Fourth of July. Maybe that’s the reason for its sudden popularity.

It’s a cute way to jazz up a simple design. These were all done with just regular polish.

20130630-123446.jpg I used O.P.I. white for the base, then painted just the tips with China Glaze blue glitter (I forgot the name of the color. But I am tempted to say it was Meteor Shower). I drew the heart with red acrylic paint then filled it in with Eriko Nails red holograms.

20130630-123745.jpg Again, I used O.P.I. white for the base with the hearts. The red is O.P.I. “Big Apple Red” and silver is from China Glaze. The hearts were created the same way.

O.P.I. white & “Big Apple Red”.

This design can have the inverted colors using white or silver holograms for the heart with a red base and still really pop. Other color combos would be fun, too.

I am used to doing pedicures with art using just polish, but it’s rare I do manicures with polish art, so this was fun. I usually work mostly with gels. But it’s nice to work with polish on occasion. Really tests your skills. (Though this one wasn’t very hard to do at all).

Thanks for visiting, and remember to keep your claws modish!

Xoxo,
Stacia
