NAIL ART TUTORIAL: I HEART YOU

Flipping through the pages of our favourite magazine, we came across these beauties – here.  As much as we love those heart wedges, our bank accounts definitely would not – nail art is always the perfect substitute. As our Valentine edition continues, we bring you a heart filled tutorial.

Step 1: After applying your favourite base coat, follow with two coats of Misa – Pay Days are Happy Days. This colour was part of Misa’s Spring 2011 9-5 collection & is one of our go-to nudes. This colour applies beautifully, even with almost full coverage with one coat. The grey undertones give it a clay like look mixed with coffee cream.

Step 2: Using a dotting tool in Essie – Big Spender, make a dot and drag it down to a point, this will be the right side of the heart shape. Place dots in a scattered pattern across the nails. You do not have to worry about it looking perfect, as the blue colour on the left side will cover up any minor mishaps.

Step 3: Next, use your dotting tool in American Apparel – Mount Royal to create the left side of your Louis Vuitton heart. Make a dot beside the original one and drag down to create a point. Seal in your design with Seche Vite top coat & voilà! LV for your fingertips!

Our Valentine’s run is almost down as tomorrow is finally V-Day. What are we going to do without pink or red on our nails?! Not to worry, we have a few New York Fashion Week inspired nails, as well as some more swatches coming up this week, so stay tuned. Show us what you’re sporting for Valentine’s Day on Twitter or Facebook! Lots of love from PYP.
