Hearts Anyone?

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!!

I decided to jump on the Valentine's Day mani bandwagon and give a go at some nail art.  I saw a technique creating hearts on Rebecca Likes Nails here and in a YouTube video here that was pretty simple, even for me to do.

I knew I wanted to do hearts, but not necessarily the same way they did it, so I just started painting and this is what I came up with.  **No base or top coat.**

 I used Alexandra's "Hot" Gray as a base and Nicole by OPI's Believe It, Do It for the hearts.

 I then decided to add Sinful Colors Opal Glitter to add some sparkle to the mani.

This was a really simple manicure, but I love the way it came out.  I actually used the head of a bobby pin, since I don't own any dotting tools (a tip I picked up from YouTube a while ago).

I hope you all like this one!  Let me know what you guys think.  Are you doing a special manicure for Valentine's day?

  4. This is such a sweet manicure! :) Love the little hearts. Hehe, we are definitely on the same page. I also did tiny little hearts for a future nail-art tutorial. :) I think your hearts turned out better, though.

  9. I wish I had thought of this! I love gray and pink (and brown and pink which I tend to do A LOT). Your hearts look great, I took the easy way out but I'll start easing to to nail art more I swear... soon... eventually :o)

  14. I have a wide array of dotting tools.....i still keep a toothpick and a straight pin with them to make super fine dots. Sometimes you just don't need the fancy tools.

    Looks great!!

  15. I see you followed our requests and jumped on the nail art bandwagon. I really like how this turned out! I'm not a fan of hearts and pinks so I didn't do any nail art for this Valentine's day. Instead I just wore Orly Fowl Play, which is a very beautiful and sexy polish.
