Freehand Colourful Hearts


Allo polish Pals!

How are you all doing today? Welcome to another weekend, I hope you will have an awesome one!

Today I am chilling after three heavy shifts at work, I don't think I'll get up to too much, perhaps some painting and plenty of family time. I'm mostly done with my Christmas shopping now – thank goodness. I am not one to leave everything to last minute. Are you feeling prepared? Its going to be super weird this year going to work on Boxing Day (second Christmas day depending on where you are from and what you call it.)

A lot of people seem startled that I have not posted anything festive yet but don't worry, its coming!

Today's nail art is again another one I created whilst in Holland (there can't be many left now) What I want to say in advance is... Look how round and stubby my nails look here! Baha. Yay for shaping them out a little better now.






I'm trying to go back in time to find any information of use about this manicure.. *massages temples*

Ah.. Yes, I began with my OPI Nail Envy base coat (the amazing product I credit to my nails not breaking in about two years) and once dry applied two coats of this black Catrice nail polish. This polish was not a hit and it did not make it home to England with me. It was horribly sheer.

Next I applied a coat of my long deceased Pro-FX top coat and moved on with my acrylics, creating different and brightly coloured hearts and shading and highlighting them. I sealed the design in with another later of top coat and later added Catrice's 'Matte and more' which gave it a really soft pinky sheen.

While this isn't the greatest nail art of all time I did like how it looked with the special effect matte top coat.

What do you think of this simple design? Have you ever worn hearts on your nails?

Have an awesome day and an even better weekend, I'll catch you again on Monday where I will be kicking off the first of my Christmas/winter themed designs.


Love,
Ithi

  4. I am pretty impressed that you did this by yourself! Like, how do you do both hands? When I do my nails it looks like a child did my right one, ha. And the hearts are cute, I would love to see it with a white base and black hearts, too.

  9. Wow that's really amazing that you did those freehanded! I love nail art, but I can't even apply the nail sheaths effectively. There is NO WAY I could do something that cool. But, your instructions are incredibly helpful. I just might try.
