get the look: Valentines Nails

Friday, January 18, 2013

 

 

We were browsing Pinterest and stumbled upon this awesome nail look! When you put your thumb and ring fingers together, it creates the image of gorgeous red glittery lips! We thought- Valentine's Day is right around the corner, how perfect would that be? Unfortunately, we hit a dead link so we figured we should create a how-to for you guys to try this look out. Here's how!

Step 1: File nails to the shape of your choice using our Nail File.

Step 2: Apply a top coat in 'Clear' for a smooth base.

Step 3: Polish only three nails- your pinky, middle finger, and index finger- using 'Red Velvet' Nail Polish.

Step 4: Follow by applying 'Love Me', a red Glitter Nail Polish, on top of the 'Red Velvet' coated nails.

Step 5: Using our Nail Polish in 'Blush', coat your ring finger and thumb nails. Let dry completely.

Step 6: Create the top of the lips using 'Red Velvet' and applying the polish to your ring finger. The easiest way to do this is to draw two semi circles with your brush. It's kind of like your drawing a 'v' and filling in the sides.

Step 7: Draw one large half moon on the tip of your thumb.

Step 8: Go over your ring finger lips with the red glitter.

Step 9: Go over your thumb finger lips with the red glitter.

How cool is that?
