WHAT YOU NEED;
- 5 different colours of nail polish including white; here I am using ORLY POLISH available from Grafton's International. Tel 01827280080
- Long thin art brush (size000)
- Nail polish remover
- Top coat
Step 1—paint your nails with white nail polish, this will make the colours pop out. Painting them white does look weird to begin with, harping back to tippex nails at school.
Step 2—using a long thin brush, these are available from most art stores, a size 000 would be best. Dipping it into your chosen polish colour, paint a heart shape on your nail.
Step 3– If our using polish to create these hearts wipe the brush clean with some nail varnish remover. You can use a water based acrylic to create this pattern. Using a pale blue add another heart shape alongside the green heart. The hearts shouldn’t be straight.
Step 4—continue adding the shapes, keep your design simple and with no more than 4 colours. Make sure you leave he white border between the hearts to give a crisp contrast. I have created a template to make it easier for you.
Step 5—when your finished adding colour, allow nail to dry. Paint with a top coat.
|For a great alternative to this step, use a dotting a tool and add dots in different colours over the surface|
|Or you could add more lines to your hearts and create a more retro look|
