Colourful Hearts

I am procrastinating terribly today. I have a mountain of washing as tall as me, I can't see my bed for the masses of clothes and ugh I am basically a slob. So, obviously, instead of cleaning it up I am posting on here.

I love working on white bases, it's like a nice clean canvas on your nails. I've been looking for a good white polish for a while because my Barry M white keeps going gloopy (might still be good for stamping?) and I decided on Essie Blanc, and it was a good choice.

I also have fancy new watermarks that follow the curve of my nail, which drove me insane trying to do properly!


So I started with my base of Essie Blanc, then I used a medium sized nail art brush to paint on the hearts. The colours, top to bottom, are - Models Own Bubblegum, China Glaze Custom Kicks, Models Own Tangerine Queen and Barry M Cyan Blue.

I then outlined in black acrylic paint using a smaller nail art brush, and finished with top coat.



I already want to do more nail art with a white base, I'll end up with no white polish left.

Don't forget to like my facebook page, if you would be so kind!

  8. Adorable! Aha, I've never used white as a base before (without putting a solid colour on top, just to help it be opaque) I just use it to re-fill my white nail art pen.. lol!

  12. Another nail polish obsessed Allie here, this is such a fun look, I need Custom Kicks, it's a great colour. I'm using opi Alpine Snow as a base at the moment but it's expensive as you know. The Essie looks like a good choice.
