Tonight on the blog I have a new Valentine's Day mani featuring a negative space heart. I was inspired by One Nail To Rule Them All for this nail art.
Here's a shot of what I used:
Pretty simple tools today - a base of OPI Nail Envy, Zoya Kitridge and Binx, white acrylic paint, a dotting tool, and a small detail brush.
After I laid down my base coat, I paintd my index, pinkie, and thumb with Zoya Kitridge and Binx on my ring finger. I did 2 coats of each. I dotted Binx on my Kitridge nails with the large side of the dotting tool and followed that with the smaller side for some accents. I topped those and my Binx finger with Seche Vite.
Now on to the star of the show - the heart! I used my small detail brush that I picked up from Michael's craft store and made an empty heart with Kitridge. Once it was mostly dry, I went around the outside of the heart with my detail brush to fill in the rest of the nail with Kitridge. Once everything had dried, I used my detail brush again with some white acrylic paint to emphasize the outline of the heart. After that was dry, I topped with Seche Vite and voila! A darling Valentine's Day mani!
