Love is in the Air!

So I have been feeling heart patterns and designs lately, I hadn't done any since this mani, but it's weird since I never really think to do heart manis in general. Maybe from now until February 14th I will ensure any nail art I do has hearts in it! What do you think about hearts, yay or nay?

I decided to freehand a heart pattern on each nail. As a base I used my previous mani of Zoya Rica. For the hearts I used Sally Hanson Salon (square bottle), Hearts on Fire which is a bright red jelly. I used a dotting tool to draw out each heart and created a pattern with them on each nail. It is not as hard or time consuming as one would think, the only challenge was working with my non-dominant hand, but once I did a few nails it got a lot easier.

This mani was super hard to capture on camera as you can see in the photo directly above, the similar shades and jelly finish of the red polish were freaking my camera out! I personally like the contrast between the red hearts and gold shimmer base in Rica. I was originally just going to apply the hearts to my ring and thumb fingers like I did last year here, but since the shades of polish were similar I decided to do all the nails instead since the colour choice made the overall design mote subtle.


  1. Hearts on Fire is a gorgeous red. I have it in my stash as well~


Don't be shy, I love reading your comments and feedback :)
