Pick 'N' Mix Challenge: Hearts & Purple

Friday, 13 February 2015

Evening beauts!
It's challenge time again and I was looking forward to getting down to some hearts nail art but unfortunately I only had some nubbins to decorate after bashing a couple of nails in the week - boohoo! I also appear to be coming down with some sort of cold/cough bug, just perfect for a Valentine's weekend eh?! I've been in full-on man flu mode all day hahaha!

This was s quick and simple... Two coats of purple followed by two coats of the hot pink, hand painted into heart shapes over the tips. I then used a white nail art pen to outline the hearts and add some lace-like dots. No topcoat on this one.

I really like this mani, I'm glad I decided to go ahead with my planned design despite the distinct lack of a free edge with which to create a pointy tip for my hearts. The colours really go well together and the shine is great for having no topcoat. I had forgotten how hard these hypergels can be to work with though, verrrry tacky!

  1. This is really cute! The pink and purple work really well together, with the white to create balance. Love it!

  2. I love these! I love the simplicity of the design, and the brightness of both colours. I also think your nails still look good this length - mine look awful short but yours look nice! <3
