Valentine’s Day: Sponged Heart

I had an idea of this mani that looked simply awesome in my head. Translated to my nails it looks slightly less awesome… Never the less it was fun to do, and it has hearts, so that makes it at least somewhat of a win, right?





How I did it:

  • Basecoat and then two coats of a grey polish (I used China Glaze Pelican Gray)
  • Using a make-up sponge, I added red shapes, making the shapes on my middle- and ring-fingers half hearts, so they make a heart when held together. (I used Nina Ultra Pro Cranberri)
  • After topcoat and time to dry, I painted hearts and dots with a fine brush and white acrylic paint.
  • A final layer of top coat and done!
