This season’s nail trend is all about the pale, milky, off-white nudes. It can be quite a hard colour to wear so I wanted to experiment a bit by combining this look with something a little more seasonal. Seeing as Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I thought some heart detailing and a red shade would go down a treat!
For this look, I used a thin nail brush, my nail tip stickers and two shades of nail varnish; Barry M’s Gelly Hi-Shine Paint in Blood Orange (I wore this colour on my wedding day too!) and Color Club’s Mod in Manhatten.
I began with two coats of the creamy white shade which I really liked. I began by thinking this look wasn’t that wearable but it looks so clean and fresh it is in fact perfect for spring!
I painted my ring fingers red then used my nail top stickers to add a thin red tip to the white nails.
I used my nail brush to freehand two little white hearts on one of my fingers. There are various heart-painting tutorials online but I went for the method of drawing two circles then pulling down with the nail brush to create the point of the heart. I didn’t even attempt this on my right hand though as it took a very steady hand!
This is a very wearable, romantic manicure and an easy way to have a go at this season’s ‘pale nail’ trend…one I will definitely be trying out again.
