Beginner nail art with heart pattern (no stamping)

Hello ladies!

Today I'll be showing you a design perfect for valentine's day, very easy to do, beginner level.

The look on the accent nail was achieved using an embossed metal decoration with crystals, from

Here's the link

You can use code DNLW10 for a 10% site wide discount and free shipping on qualified countries.

The cristals come in sets of 2, this particular design being either silver or gold, depending what you like. I have both colors and both look amazing. They are about 1cm wide and 1.5 cm long, so can cover shorter nails completely in lenght.

The crystals on them shine extremely pretty. This design has hearts on it, the reason why I chose it to be on my accent nails for this design.

Here's the polishes and materials used today:

  • Confetti - Pink paradise
  • WNW megalast- Hit the pavement
  • Spoiled by wnw- I have no reception
  • WNW megalast- Whipped topping
  • NYC- Big apple red creme
  • Small plastic brush
  • Metal decoration
  • Topcoat

  • follow a pattern when painting on the nail without crowding the hearts
  • if you have long nails for example, paint 3 hearts down and then 1 in between, like i do in the video
  • wait till they dry completely when applying top coat or else they will smudge
  • the metal decoration can be set in a layer of wet topcoat because it wont fall
  • dont press to hard on it or you'll make the polish under it curl and look bad
  • don't put topcoat over the metal decoration
  • this design looks best with a high shine topcoat
