#WeekOfLoveChallenge - Candy Heart Sayings
Welcome to the Week of Loooove Challenge! It's time to get all pink and sappy with hearts and flowers and crap because this week is all about the mush.
Ok, it's really about the nail art. Actually, it's all about the after Valentines' Day sales when candy is cheap and plentiful! But, we must entertain ourselves until then.
In the meantime, check out this glitter - one of the first I remember coming on the scene after Indies exploded with colored milky bases swimming with glitter - Nails Inc Topping Lane. Doesn't it just look like candy?
That candy quality is why I chose it, because today's challenge is about being inspired by those ubiquitous candy hearts that taste like sugar on steroids.
In order to have the hearts pop out of the background, I first did an outline of the hearts with a white striper.
I chose pastel scattered holos for the hearts themselves: Aly's Dream Polish in Bayouberry and Rumpleberry, and Treasures by Tan in Midorita and Amazon Dreams.
In a purple nail art pen, I wrote what I imagined these hearts might say now, in as few letters as possible because I have nubbins!
Topcoat, and done! Very sugary-sweet! Don't eat the polish..
