Nail Art Tutorial: Easy Breezy Valentines Day Nails...Again!


Happy nail art day!!!  Here's my third and final installment for Valentine's Day nails 2010!  Heads up to everyone, this will be the final Valentine's Day inspired nails, so hopefully you won't be seeing pinks and reds for awhile...I'll try! :P

I call this nail art the "Easy Breezy Valentine's Day" nails because there's no complicated drawing needed, just lines and of course...stickers!!!  Easy breezy indeed!


 

Step 1:
Apply a base coat then 2 coats of your favorite base color.  I am using ELF Nail Polish in Bubble Gum Pink

  
Step 2:
Using any gold sparkle polish, I use a thin brushed version from Prettynails', I create gradient nails.  I have to say it again and agian that this does not have to be perfect.

  
Step 3:
Using L.A. Art Deco Polish in Sparkly Red, create random strokes on top of the gold sparkle polish.  Making sure the polish gets dry on each step.

  

Step 4:
Use any Nail Art Sticker you prefer, I chose the ones that comes with hearts


  

Using a tweezer to grab the sticker gently and stick it on your nails randomly.  Make sure the base is dry.
  
Step 5:
Protect the nail art with O.P.I. RapiDry Top Coat or any top coat of your choice.

  

Enjoy this  easy to do nail art!  
If you still can't paint your nails, then ask for a friend to help! hahaha 
That's the easiest thing to do I believe!  

 

Enjoy the coming Valentine's Day!
Do you do anything special to prettify yourself for the love season?
You bet I'll be wiggling my nails in front of everyone!  *laughs*

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
Stay in love! :)

  2. Nikki, this is very nice, especially the red-over-gold combination. I was wondering how to use this combination without it looking Christmas-y. I think the pink base made it Valentine-appropriate. Great idea, you made it work!
