Nail Art Tutorial: "Queen of Hearts" Nails

Hello everyone!!! Long weekend for us here in the Philippines! After work today, I'll be ALL SMILES! :D No work on Monday!!! Did you read that right? Yes!!! No Manic Monday! *giggles* I am too giddy!

Anyways, before the week ends, I will leave you pretties a very simple nail art that everyone can do :) Though I call this the "Queen of Hearts" Nails, do not expect this nail art looking exactly like a Queen of Hearts Card. This is my own version :) Hope you like it!

Love for everyone!!!



Step 1:

Apply 2 coats of The Face Shop (old packaging) polish in Shimmering Lavender. Let dry.



Step 2:

Very excited with my new L.A. Colors Art Deco polishes. I used RED and create a diagonal line, filling half of the nail with the red polish.



Step 3:

Go through the line between the 2 colors with L.A. Colors Art Deco in glitter gold



Step 4:

Apply a thick layer of any top coat of your choice.



Step 5:

Press any nail art glitters, rhinestones, or in my case, I used a heart shaped rhinestone. Apply any direction you want :) I alternate Clear and Red hearts.



Voila!
I'm full of hearts!
Full of love :)



I hope this can brighten up your day! :)
Have a wonderful day ahead!
Stay happy!
