Manicure Monday (Conversation Hearts for Valentine's Day!)

Ahh, almost time for Valentine's Day! 

I thought this year I would try a candy related manicure! And my inspiration is Conversation Hearts! I love these candies and thought they would make such cute nails!! 

Here are the products I used for this week's Manicure Monday:

  • OPI Top Coat
  • Formula X Nail Cleanser and Base Coat
  • Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen in Hot Pink
  • Nail Art Brush
  • Ciate in "Strawberry Milkshake"
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in "Mint Sorbet"
I am only doing green and pink so it's not too many colors, but feel free to do as many different conversation heart colors as you like - try and use pastels if you have them!

Here are the steps I followed for this week's manicure:

1. Nail Cleanser and Base Coat
2. 2 coats of polish - I painted 4 pink with 1 green accent nail:

3. Using a nail art brush and the opposite color from the base of your nail, draw the top of a heart (or a whole heart if you wish:

4. And fill in with polish.
5. Add as many hearts as you like - I did 2, 1 pink 1 green:

6. Let polish dry well. Then, using the nail art pen - write a word on to the "heart". I just chose a one word phrase as it is a little tricky!! 

7. Complete on all hearts
8. Let dry well and Top Coat! 

Again, here is my final result:

There you have it - Conversation Hearts!
