I am not really bothered by Valentine’s Day to be honest, but I wanted to create something fun and easy to my usual mani.
As a base I used my trusty OPI Nail Envy, you know I love the stuff. When dried I put on one coat of Essie Ballet Slippers to pale down my natural nail colour just a tiny bit. The hard bit was to choose the right shade of red for the heart as I wanted a light red not too orangey but yet not too like a true red. Finally I made up my mind and went for Rimmel in 317 Hip Hop.
The rounded brush of Hip Hop is perfect for creating the top of the heart shape. By tilting the brush as of creating a V shape on the tip of the nail brush one coat and then do the same thing on the other side, let it dry and give a second coat. That easy!
If you want to make it super quick you can finish off with Seche Vite or if not just seal everything with your regular top coat.
I really like the end result as it is still neutral and subtle yet has a little summin summin that makes it all interesting.
What do you think?
