First, paint all of your nails but your ring finger with two coats of mint polish. I chose to paint one pinky with the matte gold polish. Paint the ring fingers with the gold glitter nail polish.

Put a little gold polish and mint polish on a paper plate.

Dip the brush in the gold nail polish and put dots in a line on your nail and move along down the nail. Do this on all of the mint colored nails. Next, dip the other paint brush in the mint nail polish and do one or two little stripes on your gold glitter polished nails.

After your nails have all dried, put the clear top coat on them and you are done!

Conversation Heart Inspired Nail Art

Conversation Heart Inspired Nail Art Tutorial

I love conversation hearts. I know there are the haters in the world who think they taste like flavored chalk (cough, cough, MY husband), but I love them! When I was looking at some advertisements that came in the mail, I saw a few pictures of conversation hearts and it got the wheels turning a little bit. What if I did some conversation heart inspired nail art?! I didn’t want anything overly flashy or too literal, just nail art inspired by my favorite Valentine’s Day treat.

Conversation Heart Nails

I love how they turned out! To create your own, you need…

Nail Polish Valentine Tutorial

*Five different pastel colored nail polishes

*Red outdoor vinyl

*vinyl cutter

*Clear top coat polish

Valentine Nail Tutorial

First, paint all of your nails. Do each nail a different color of your pastel polish, but keep both hands the same so it isn’t too busy. Make sure they are really dry before moving onto the next step.

DIY nail stickers

Cut out a few different conversation heart sayings out onto your vinyl. I chose to cut out enough for all of the nails and then see how I liked them on each nail to decide how many I wanted to keep on there. In the end, I chose to just put decals on two of the nails on each hand.

Conversation Heart Valentine Nail Art

Either use a weeding tool or transfer tape to place the letters onto your nails. Your nails will start looking like little conversation hearts!

Paint the clear top coat polish over all of your nails and let them dry.

Now you have some fun conversation heart inspired nails for the big day of love!

Black and Gold Glitter Burst Nail Art

Black and Gold Glitter Burst Nail Art

 I absolutely love the black and gold trend right now. You can find it on handbags, clothing, home decor, and jewelry! It has become a total winter staple when it comes to styling outfits for me. Another fun way to bring that trend into your wardrobe is by painting your nails with black and gold. Having dressier looking nails is perfect for this time of year with all of the holiday parties and fun winter events there are. The greatest part about this nail art? It is easy! Nail art can often times be pretty tedious, time consuming, and hard. This glitter burst nail art is none of those! It won’t take you much longer than it would to just put a plain coat of polish on your nails.

Gold Burst Nail Art

Supplies:

Black fingernail polish

Gold glitter fingernail polish

Clear top coat

Paper towel

This could also be done with any other colors as well. Be as creative as you want!

Winter Nail Art Tutorial

 First, paint your fingernails black. Two coats of polish usually looks the best.

Winter Glitter Nail Art

 Put a dot of glitter nail polish down on the base of your fingernails. Only do this one hand at a time.

Glitter Burst Nails

 Use the top coat to brush from the dot of glitter polish and brush up onto the rest of your nail. Wipe off polish in between swipes so the glitter polish doesn’t get all over the nail. Brush from the base out onto the entire nail so the glitter can spread to the rest of the nail. You want it to look like the glitter is bursting from the base of your nail.

Black and Gold Glitter Nail Art

 Let the polish dry and top it off with a coat of clear top coat over the entire nail. Your nails will be looking sparkly, festive, and fierce!
