NOTD: Valentine's Day Nails



Even though I don't generally tend to celebrate Valentine's Day myself, I just couldn't resist painting my nails in a Valentine's theme! I was initially planning to do a step-by-step tutorial, but the daylight was against me so I'll just talk through the steps I took to get this nail look!

I chose red as the main colour seeing as it's often associated with love on Valentine's! I started off with a clear base coat, followed by a basic red nail polish. I love the way glitter polish looks so I went for Barry M's Gold Glitter for the details. Once the red polish was dry, I used the glitter polish to freehand paint the tips of all the nails, except for the ring finger. I found it best to wait until that was all dry before starting the heart accent to avoid any accidental smudging! Then I managed to add the heart freehand too by painting a "v" shape first, then joining the top with two curves to complete the heart.



The whole nail look only took me around 25 minutes from start to finish so I would say this is quite an easy look to achieve if you have a steady hand! I think you can also get little stickers from places like Ebay to use as a guide for the tips and heart shape to make it even easier!

What do you think of this nail look? Will you be painting your nails for Valentine's Day?
