Valentine’s Nail 101: Sweet Heart Nails in 20 mins

by xin on January 29, 2010

Valentine’s is near…chinese new year is near…and I haven’t painted my nails in a while! Anyone misses my nails? ^_^

So, you are going on a Valentine’s date and you only have 20 mins to spare? Don’t worry, you can whip out a set of good nails too!

1

You need:

– Base & top coat
– A sweet nail color
– Glitter nail color
– A long strip of nail sticker ( Thanks Lisa to send me this 🙂 )
– Tweezer, scissors

2

Since it is a sweet date, pick a sweet and mellow color (pink, shades of pink, red, gold). Here, I am using Revlon Tropical Temptation in 914.

Color a tip along your nail bed. Don’t worry about the line not being perfect. You see, the reason of why I am doing a thick tip is to cover the imperfections, plus it is much easier to draw a thick line.

3

Then, use the tweezer to lift the sticker up and try to roll it along the line of your polish.

See? The imperfections can be under cover!

Then use a scissors to cut the excess.

4

It should look something like this when you are done. This sticker is so much fun as it works like cello-tape. But a lacy one 😀

Looks a little boring here.. I prefer to jazz it up a little.

5

By adding glitter polish on the tip! Now, it is jazzy and bling-bling.

Let dry and apply a layer of top coat to secure the lacy sticker.

6

And finally a family picture!

Honestly I finished this in about 30 mins including the photo shooting time. So, I am guessing without posing the nails, 20 mins should be sufficient.

Hope you enjoy this …and happy friday!
