Candy Love Hearts

This was one fo the looks i did for Valentines day. But if you just like eating sweets then this one is a good one for you for that too!! Although i tend to leave most of the packet i’m i have these to eat personally……

So the colours i used for this are ‘Misty Jade’ by Rimmel, ‘Heartbeat’ by 17, ‘Peach Melba’ by Barry M, ‘Berry’ by Barry M, ‘Strawberry’ by Barry M, ‘Matt White’ by Barry M, ‘Rose Libertine’ by Rimmel and ‘553’ by Maybeline.

These are quite simple to do, colour wise. Just use any pastel colours you have. I’d just bought these from the Barry m range and thought they would be perfect for that. And a few from Rimmel too. Each nail has a different background colour.

remember to first put down a base coat to prevent your nails from staining then put down two to three coats of each colour on each nail, Pastel colours are sometimes great and thick and a few com up streaky. So depending on what you’re using you’ll have to adjust.

For the writing i did some research, by research, i mean sweet buying and have a look at the font used, It’s basically all caps, and petty normal apart from a couple of letters. So with the Darker pink i used on two of the nails, i just painted the writing straight on the nails and went around and i put the heart that they’re in afterwards.

With the lighter pink i used for some of the lettering i found that putting it down on white first actually made it stand out better, It means writing it twice but it’s worth it.

I hope this helps and have fun recreating this look.
