Pop Heart

I sound like a broken record but lord is it COLD! It's -1 here. I'm sitting here under a big fleecy blanket with just my hands poking out like ET. I feel like climbing into the oven.

Anyway, I wanted to do something bright, so here we have what I have labelled "pop heart". The heart design is something I did on a nail wheel (which will eventually be posted here) and decided to use in an actual mani, though granted it does look better on the nail wheel.

The base is Rimmel Lasting Finish in Sunshine. The formula was a bit sheer and streaky but it does have a nice subtle shimmer to it. The accent nail was done using Barry M - Matt White and a dotting tool, then I freehanded (can't you tell!) a heart using Models Own - Bubblegum, and outlined it using a tiny brush with black acrylic paint. I'll be damned if I can outline things using actual black polish. Damned I tell you.

I finished with a couple of fimo flowers. I'm on the fence about the flowers. One of the pesky things decided to fall off when I was taking pictures (and what better time to fall off!?) which is why there's an odd blur on my index finger...I didn't have time to stick it back on so I blurred out the big chip.
