Stenciled Heart Gradient

Just a quick nail art post for you guys on this lovely Sunday!

You may recall my stenciled star tutorial that I did for my Fourth of July nails. I used a star hole punch for those, and when I was at Michael's recently I picked up a similar punch but with a heart instead. I used the stenciled technique in the tutorial for all of these nails except my ring finger accent, which was freehanded (and I think it shows).

I used the same colors for this look as I did in my bright Easter floral nail art. All Zoya polishes: Jacqueline, Malia, Arizona, Robyn, and Audrina. It's interesting how different the two manicures look despite including the same colors. Just goes to show a small nail polish stash can go a long way when used in nail art!

I wasn't crazy about this right after I finished it, but it did grow on me a little. I think next time I will take extra care to choose very opaque polishes to use in the sponging.

Happy Game of Thrones day!

  2. I agree that the two color combos look extremely different for having used the same polishes, pretty either way.

  20. I live that they don't look so perfect, with clear lines. It really reminds me stencils from street. Nice!
