manic MANI: BIG HEART NAILS


You may have seen our other version of "Baggie Design" Nails. You can check it out here. I had been eyeing these nails on Pinterest forever so I decided to try it out today! This time I used a plastic page holder but a baggie will still work just as great.

Print out or draw hearts on a piece of paper. I made 2 of the hearts bigger- for the thumbs, 6 medium size for the pointer, middle and ring fingers, and 2 small ones for the pinky fingers. Put the paper in the plastic sleeve.
YOU CAN DOWNLOAD MY EXACT HEARTS HERE

Fill in the heart shapes with the color you want the hearts to be. I used American Apparel's Palm Springs.

Outline the hearts with black. You can see that my hearts were not all the same exact shape by the end. They will still look great on your nails and if the shape is really bad, you can use scissors to shape it up when you peel them off.

Paint your nails whatever color you want the base to be.
I used Julep's Sophie- Trina Turk Fall '12. Love this color all by itself.

After the hearts have dried for about an hour, peel off each one very slowly.

Then place the design on the center of your nail.

Cover the nails with clear nail polish and you are done! I'm excited to have fun nails again!
It has been a while.
