Valentine's: Nails


I love nail art and painting my nails, as my lovely followers have probably gathered by now :)
So, I wanted to do some nice Valentine's inspired nails.
The other night, I suddenly remembered I had some red hearts in a Barry M Glitter Stacking Set that I bought YEARS ago, so tonight I had some fun doing my nails!


Barry M Glitter Stacking Set '13'
- I have had this for at least 3 or 4 years and never used :-o


Pre-hearts.

 Post-hearts <3

Ta daa :) 

My Sister decided to have a go too: 
Red polish and glitter topcoat used.

Mine and Donna's nails :)  

To create my heart nails I used:

17 Nail Xtras Nail Recovery (as base coat)
17 Lasting Fix 'Mini Skirt'
Barry M Glitter Stacking Set '13': Bottom pot, red hearts

I dropped the hearts on to the nails immediately after the second coat of Mini Skirt.
I counted 49 hearts in total on my nails (I think!), plus Donna used a bunch and the pot doesn't even look like any have gone, there must actually be a few hundred hearts in there!

This would also be good for Queen of Hearts fancy dress!
Hope you like :)

  2. Great idea, pretty certain I have some of those hearts somewhere, but I just didn't think to use them like this. Great blog.

    I have one on valentine's nails and lips, check it out if you have a spare minute, I would really appreciate it.

  6. awh i love this, it's such an innovative idea and looks so much more neat than attempting it with a nail art pen or polish :)
