For a wedding this weekend I was honored to be asked to do both the bride and maid of honor’s nails. I might get a picture of them later so I can show you. They were happy at least and that’s what’s most important of course.
I wanted something simple for myself so I grabbed some colors that matched my dress and I’m not too worried about conventions and keeping it safe; so I ended up with OPI ‘My vampire is buff’ and China Glaze ‘Flip Flop Fantasy’. That one is REALLY hard to get a good picture of since the camera really don’t want to pick up all that neon, but I actually think I came close this time. So this is my easy leopard heart neon mani:
And here is how I made them:
- Start with base color, I used OPI My Vampire is buff
- Take a dotting tool or bobby pin and make heart shapes. I used China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy.
- Outline the hearts with random black lines, not all the way around. I used a brush instead of a dotting tool for this because I like to have a bit more control over my lines. But you can make them with your dotting tool or bobby pin too. I used OPI Black Onyx.
- Fill in empty spaces with little black shapes.
- Top coat and clean up!
Good luck and have fun!
