This is my second post of the day! If you missed it, please check out my review of a set of Crown Brush HD Cosmetic brushes. I highly recommend them!
I'm kinda excited about today's nail art. I was inspired by this Pinterest pin, which, of course, doesn't tell me who to credit. Argh! Well, whoever you are, thanks for the cute design idea!
I did this for a nail friend who was having a rough time. Some of us decided to do pink manis in an attempt to cheer her up and show our support.
I started with Jade Aurora, a lovely bright, light pink holo. Have you picked up a Jade holo yet? For about $7, you get just about the best holo bang for your buck. They are a Brazilian brand, so if you're like me, you'll have to order it from Llarowe or Ninja Polish.
No muss, no fuss, just a beautiful linear rainbow.
I've outlined hearts several ways - sometimes I paint the whole heart in the outline color and then do a smaller heart inside. This time, I did the pink heart first in Zoya Mason, and then did an outline with my black nail art striper.
I also used the striper to make the swirl around the heart. With longer nails, this looks more like a French tip, but by making the swirl thin out and curl at the top, you can give the illusion of more length.
I even painted my right hand... though it took a lot longer, and I made more mistakes. This is still a proud moment. *sniff*
This would also be a fun mani for Valentines' Day, or maybe even an anniversary. I would caution against wearing this on a first date, lest you seem too eager.

I don't normally wear a lot of hearts, but I do like these! Not too cutesy, but definitely an attention-getter! Would you wear your heart on your nails?
