Be My Valentine Nail Art Tutorial

4:00 AM

Today wraps up my Valentine’s Day #ManiMonday.  I’ve done two designs, you can see last week’s nails here.  For this one I wanted to use pink.  Not only do I love pink, but pink can also be a Valentine’s Day color, not just red.  I decided to go with a more simple design.  On my thumb I have two love swans, my pointer and middle I have the chalky sweet hearts with messages like Be Mine, XO, and QT, along with an envelope sealed with a little heart, and last but not least we all need some balloons in lives at one point so I went with some heart shaped balloons.  I was extremely sad though because my left hand had lost a nail, my one nail (the longest one) broke right in half.  So painful and it was right after I got done saying that I’m lucky my natural nails grow so long, hopefully I didn’t just jinx myself again!  Anywhoo, let’s get onto the actual tutorial for these nails.

These are all of the colors I used, you’ve most likely seen them here before because I tend to stick to what I know especially if I love it.  

First you paint your nails with a base coat, I always use Sally Hansen maximum strength.  Once that dries (it’s usually dry within minutes) start with your base colors.  I did two white and three pink.  

Moving on to the envelope and balloon nail.  The envelope nail is quite easy, you just make one triangle and then two lines topped off with a pink heart.  Yes, that’s it!  For the pinky you want to start off with two hearts and a little balloon knot attached to them.

Next we have the pointer and middle finger with the sweet heart messages.  All you do is pick some pastel (or close to pastel) colors and just draw little hearts, but big enough to fit a message, as you can see in the first picture I couldn’t fit the “be mine” message so it got a little messed up, womp!  The swans were the first design I finished.  This one I didn’t really take pictures of for this tutorial but they are somewhat easy, you just have to follow what they look like in the picture.

Next just add the messages in your sweetheart candies, and the black ribbon to the balloons.  Once they are completely dry add your top coat, I use OPI and swear by it!

Now you have the perfect be mine Valentine’s Day nails!
