With Valentine's Day around the corner, I figured I'd get in the spirit by painting my nails. I opted against the traditional red and pink colors and went for pastels.
Here are the tools I used:
- Nail polish (I used Essie's Pansy, Lilacism, Absolutely Shore, Good as Gold, Color Club Apollo Star and Chanel Eastern Light)
- Nail dotting tool (or toothpicks)
- Washi tape (this tape is less sticky and is easy to work with)
Paint your nails with the shades you picked
Fold a strip of washi tape in half (leaving the ends apart so you can pull apart the tape later).
Cut out half of a heart shape where the fold meets in the middle.
Pull apart the washi tape, which now holds your heart stencil.
Place the washi tape over the nail of your choice and choose an alternate color to paint over your nail stencil.
Use the nail dotting tool (or toothpick) to dot your other nails.
And you're done! Finish with top coat and you now have no-fuss, Valentine's Day inspired nails.
