Nails on Monday!

Patchwork Heart Nails


Hello and happy Monday :) I don't normally do my nails again this soon, but after all my failed attempts on Saturday, I had to try something else and I'm glad I did as I love what I've done :) One of my top favourite nail arts is Patchwork Nails. So I changed this one around and added a heart. Again this is a first this year for me, to do more than one Valentines manicures. I used the Glam Polishes from Beauty UK, as I think these colours work so well together.

Fuchsia, Bon Bon, Gobstopper, Jelly Bean and Bright Orange
I made heart stickers with the medical tape, which has become my go to tape for nail art. Stuck them in the centre of each nail and painted over with the Fuchsia polish. While polish was still wet I carefully removed the tape.


Then with the other four polishes I painted carefully around the heart. This photo is before clean up, and looks messy until the stitches are added!



With a very fine detail brush and black acrylic paint, I added tiny stitches, topcoat and voila Patchwork Heart Nails!!




Love love love this design and the colours! Its magical how the tiny detail if black stitches makes a difference to how this manicure look. What do you think?
