NOTD #19: Broken Hearted

Wednesday, February 08, 2012


In the spirit of the "holiday," here are some Valentine's Day nails that are really easy to do. Plus, they're perfect if you're for or against this Hallmark day.

Here's what you'll need:
* A base colour
* A shatter/crackle polish
* Tape

Here's what I used:
* Essie Fiji
* Essie Fiesta
* China Glaze Crackle Glaze
* Base Coat (butterLondon) + Top Coat (Seche Vite)
* Tape (I used Painter's tape -- the cheap kind so it isn't too sticky)


Paint your nails with the base colour you chose. I used Essie Fiesta and Essie Fiji as an accent nail.


Cut out a heart shape in the tape. I chose painter's tape because it's not as sticky as regular tape, 
which makes it more manageable. Even then... this was my third try haha.


After your nails are completely dry, stick the tape on your nail (make sure it's secure) 
and apply a layer of shatter polish.


 Voilà! 

Finish it off with your favourite top coat.


What are you wearing on your nails today?

  1. Ahh - that looks awesome! I will try it for V-day! Today I am wearing the second colour in my intro Maven box - Hayden, the peach neon creme. It's kind of a neutraly-bright, and it's growing on me!
