I can’t believe we are half-way through the July Nail Art Challenge! It’s a lot of work to consistently put out original nail art designs every day- but so worth it, right? Day 15 is all about HEARTS and I have a cute purple design for you today!
I started with two coats of Butter London Scoundrel which is a nice dusky purple. A few of my nails I topped with two coats of an OPI glitter called Lights of Emerald City. Since that OPI glitter is white I decided to make some white hearts on my other nails to pull the design together. FOR THE HEARTS: I started with my Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen in black. I am loving this pen and just ordered two silver ones (do I see a giveaway in Crafty’s future? Yes, yes I do!) I drew the hearts on with the black pen and then dotted inside the hearts with NYC white nail polish. Since I used my skinniest/smallest dotting tool it was easy to position the white inside the black heart shapes. I like the way that they have a nice black outline around them now.
Do any of you guys have a white textured polish, like maybe OPI Solitaire? If you use that to fill in the black heart outline then I bet they’d look like cute little PUFFY HEARTS! Wish I had a white textured polish like that!
Do you use nail art pens? They’re handy to have! Mine is from Sally Hansen but I wonder how the other brands work….
