valentine’s day nail art

I’ve had quite a few requests to do some nail art tutorials, and what better time to show you a few than the loved-up month of February!

I’m still trying to find the right angles and whether pictorials are better than a filmed tutorial so please bear with me, I promise my visuals will get better!

I’m just dotty about you

Heart dots

1.Start off with a plain white nail.

2. Use your dotting tool (or the end of a bobby pin) to make two hearts with a dark pink in the centre. If you aren’t sure how to create a heart, there will be a tutorial a little bit further down.

3. Use your dotting tool again with a light pink to create a row of dots on either side and down the middle

French love

French tip

1. Start with a plain white nail.

2. Using a dark pink, carefully paint a french tip.

3. With your dotting tool, create two dots next to each other.

4. Use a tooth pick or a striping brush and join the two dots at a point, to create a heart.

1. I chose a grey-mauve as a base colour.

2. Use a dark pink to create the top half of a heart. I find that the easiest way to do this is with a nailpolish that has a curved brush tip.

3. With white paint and your dotting tool, trace a line around the dark pink heart top. Don’t stress too much if it isn’t perfect, you won’t notice after the next two steps.

4. Take your dotting tool and create dots around the white line you have just created.

5. Now create smaller dots inside of the heart.

6. To make the look more interesting, take the same dark pink that you used for the heart and create smaller dots on the inside of the white dots on the outside of the heart.

1. Again, start with a white base.

2. Grab your toothpick or striping brush and create a line of dashes with a dark colour, I chose to use a dark brown.

3. With your dotting tool and red paint, make two dots next to each other.

4. Use your toothpick or striping brush join the two dots to create a heart.

What did you think of these quick tutorials? Should I do more?

If you do create any of the looks, please tag me on social media, I would love to see!

    I love it so convenient I don’t have to buy those expensive nail art tools. I can use what in the house
