Copycat: Kelly Osbourne’s pointy black heart nails!

I’m so happy to show you my latest CELEBRITY COPYCAT manicure!  From the instant I transitioned my nails from squoval to pointy I just knew that I had to try out this design!  Ready to see my rendition of Kelly Osbourne’s black heart nails from the 2013 SAG Awards??

My mani isn’t a complete match, since her nails are way pointier.  But I am loving this fierce look!  I don’t dare file mine as pointy as hers- I really think they’d break! 

I timed how long this manicure took me from start to finish and it was 27 minutes.  And it didn’t cost me anything since I did it myself.  I wonder how much time and money Kelly spent on these nails?!  teeheehee 😉

black hearts nail tips by Craftynail

Here’s the steps to create this look:

1) Base coat-  I used one coat of Sally Hansen Maximum Growth.

2) Sheer neutral base color-  I applied one coat of Seche Vite Chic which is a very sheer pinky peach color meant to be used as a base for french manicures.

3) Black tips-  I used China Glaze Liquid Leather and skinny nail art brush to make the heart shape outline.  Then I used the China Glaze bottle brush to fill in the rest of the heart with more black polish.  However, when I went to do my second hand I skipped the nail art brush part and simply free-handed the hearts using the bottle brush.  This was just as effective, but way quicker!!!

4) Silver accents- I can’t tell if Kelly was wearing silver glitter on her tips, or what…since they looked black but also kinda silver too.  So I decided to add some pewter-toned polish on top of the black to imitate her look.  I used a nail art brush dipped in Sally Hansen Gunmetal to go over top of the black.  I brushed it on in a very ‘quick and dirty’ kind of way since I just wanted to add a bit of silver on top of the black.

5) Top coat- I applied one coat of Seche Vite topcoat to finish off my manicure.

And that’s it!  What do you think?  Any recommendations for other celebrity copycats that I should attempt??? I want to try more!

  1. Yaassss! They’re awesome Jacqui!! I love the silvery touch you added to it, it blended so well that I thought it was one colour. I agree about not making them too pointy so they’re a safer length, and I don’t think you need to anyway because the effect is super clear. Nailed it! x

Jacqui loves comments! Feel free to leave one...
