I thought I would try out another simple nail art technique today. I have always wanted to be able to paint hearts on my nails but never really got how to do it because I don't have the steadiest hands, but my friend showed me her way of doing it and so I adapted it to suit me and I thought I would share it.
Firstly, I painted my nails with a sheer pink nail colour, I used a french manicure colour from an
old set I found, so you don't need anything special.
Then, with my chosen heart colour, I picked Bordeaux by Essie, I did one dot for the base of the heart.
I then painted one dot with the brush up and to the left of the first one, and then dragged it down to the base dot, to make the left half of the heart.
And then finally, I did the same for the right half, creating a little heart.
You could then add a top coat and voila! I found this was an easy way to create simple hearts but if you know of any others feel free to let me know! This technique was also made easier because my Essie polish is an original one, rather than the diffusion line, so the brush was smaller and easier to manage. Overall, I think these are quite cute and although they aren't perfect I will be trying this out again with different colours.
