Heart Cutouts

Happy Valentine's Day! I am celebrating today by spending time with my dearest boyfriend and (trying) to relax a little bit. :) To celebrate the holiday, I did these heart cutout nails.


It is a pretty simple manicure, in theory. I cut heart shapes out of tape and placed them on my nails. I painted over the tape, and then I slowly peeled the tape off. It left the heart shape on my naked nail and the rest of the nail was painted! Then all I had to do was add the white dots with a dotting tool and topcoat.


The majority of the nail is OPI Pink Friday. The white dots were done in Konad Special Polish White, which I have actually been liking a lot for nail art because of how opaque it is.


I did have a really hard time getting this manicure to photograph correctly, but I think I finally got it (or... close enough). I hope your Valentine's manicure plans turned out well, and I hope everyone has a great day full of love, whether you are single or not!
