Heart Nail Art

This week I discovered a new way of drawing nail, using bobby pins. I know most people probably know about using pins for nail art, so did I but I tended to rely on the Barry M or Models Own nail art pens and my dotting tools for anything more intricate.

I painted my nails with the Models Own scented polish in Apple Pie. I’m a big fan of the scented range from Models Own because they genuinely do smell of what they’re supposed. They’ve recently launched two new shade, Peach Melba and Coconut, I can’t wait to spot these in the shops. To draw the hearts I used the Models Own polish in Snow White and a bobby pin. I really recommend the white polish from Models Own because it only takes two coats for opaque coverage and its not gloopy and difficult like most white polishes.

It did take me a little while and I did make a few mistakes but I think practice makes perfect and being patient.

Models Own Lilac Sheen and Pink Fizz

I’ve mentioned before that lilac is my favourite nail polish shade and while I looking through my collection, I found this gorgeous Models Own Hypergel shade in Lilac Sheen. I love this shade, it’s a white based lilac, almost a lavender colour. I’ve read really mixed reviews about the Hypergels, some people have said they bubbled really badly and took an age to dry. I’m being completely honest when I say, I’ve had no problems with them. This paints really easily, it’s never bubbled and the dry time is roughly the same compared to other polishes. I’ve even bought more shades from the Hypergel range and they’re great too. On top I’ve layered Pink Fizz which is a lovely rose circular glitter, I particularly like this glitter because it’s quite easy to remove.

Monochrome with Lilac Nails

Over the past couple of days I’ve rediscovered my nail dotting tools. If you want to get into nail art, I can’t recommend dotting tools enough, they make it super easy to get a pretty pattern on your nails and I love how dots look on the nails. I don’t think much needs to be said about this design. I used Rimmel’s black nail polish, Model’s Own white polish and Barry M’s Berry Ice Cream for the lilac dots.

What do you think? Do you look dotty nail art?
