Valentine's Day Hearts & Reflective Polish Nail Art

Hello and happy love day! 😁 

Ok, more traditionally called Valentine's Day!

I am so excited to share this design with you because I did it all free hand and it's not too difficult looking but the hearts turned out so well so I'm super proud and love this design SO MUCH! 💕


It took me quite a while to do the hearts because I'm a bit of a perfectionist sometimes.... 😅


I actually did the pink heart on a stamper but then I did the other hearts just directly on my nails because I didn't want to re-stamp and ruin my pink heart that I worked so hard on. 😆


Using a glitter polish to do designs can be really tricky because if the base isn't coloured, the shape tends not to materialize as easily so you do need to be more patient with the layers. I try and let each layer fully dry before going back in to build up opacity.

For the little heart on the left you can see that it's not as opaque as the others, I did that trying to get some more depth into the design but under the lights it looks unfinished even though it was the intention. It's ok though, I still think it worked out well. 😊


I used a few different sized dotting tools for this mani. I think the pink really stands out so nicely in this design. 💗


I just LOVE this base polish too! 2 coats of pure perfection 😍 I always say this but I do LOVE the formulas on the Static Nail lacquers so much!


Here is what I used:

Base coat: Yellow Stopper
Static Nails - Fetish
Bow Polish - Afterlife & Miles Away
Dotting tools, line brush & nail polish mixing plate  - Amazon*
Top coat: Seche Vite*


Well that's all for today!
