I wouldn’t say that I’m jaded. I love Valentine’s Day and all the hearts and flowers that go with it. Just kinda bummed about it because I know I won’t be getting anything. I tell my husband every year not to worry about getting me anything with the small hopes he’ll see through it and get me something anyways. I know I should know better; men are notorious for not getting mixed messages and that’s one of the worst of them all, but I hate to have to come out and tell him yes, I’d like a card and flowers please!
So this tutorial is going to be short, simple, and blue. Blue for the feelings that a lot of people feel this time of year.
Supplies you’ll need: Three blue polishes. I used Polish Yer Hooves’ Don’t It Make Your Cow Eyes Blue, Sally Hansen Blue Frosting and OPI’s Unfor-Greta-Bly Blue (not shown). You’ll also need a fan brush and a pallet to pour your polishes on.
First step, and one that I forgot to take pictures of LOL, is put down your base coat. I used Blue Frosting as my base coat (and five layers later I reached full opacity). Pfft.
Step Two: Load up your fan brush with your lightest blue, which I used Cow Eyes for that.
With a very light hand, brush it over the top coat in a sweeping manner.
Step Three: Using your darker shade, lightly fan on some more lines. Doesn’t have to be perfect, just make sure some of your lighter blue can peek through.
You could even go a little less than I did with the darker blue.
Step Four: Using a nail art brush or a dotting tool, draw out a heart and then add little embellishments.
You can do this to each nail, but I chose to just do it on an accent nail. I love how this blue sparkles!
Top coat and you’re done!
Soooooo pretty! I love all the blues!
My flash kinda blew out this picture, but you get the point. I love how the holo in Cows Eyes just explodes!
