A subtle heart nail
January Beauty Favorites
When it comes to nail art, I’d much rather wear something classic and neutral that I won’t get sick of versus something loud and trendy.
A few years ago I shared a simple heart nail step by step on my blog, and I’m back this time with an even easier way to add a little “love” to your nails.
You’ll need top coat, tweezers, tissue paper, scissors and polished nails (whatever color your little heart desires. pun intended).
Cut out a few hearts and choose your favorite. Don’t be like me and choose a tissue paper color too close to the color on your nails (I’m wearing Care to Danse? by OPI). I ended up layering two hearts over top of one another, but had I chose red tissue paper I wouldn’t have run into that issue. The minimalist in me likes that it isn’t an obvious heart on my nail, but I wouldn’t mind it popping just a little bit more.
Apply a thin coat of top coat, and carefully set the tissue paper heart on top of your nail. Use the tip of your tweezers to tap down the heart on all the sides. Don’t rub!
*sorry about state of the skin on my ring finger. I’m clearly having a reaction to my wedding rings which is why they are off!
Give it about 60-90 seconds to dry, and then apply another layer of top coat over top of the heart.
Quick, simple, and an easy way to spice up a nail or two.
