Sometimes the thought of self created nail art is just too daunting, but even the worse artist can do these two easy heart designs with the right tools!
First is the Dotted Heart design, originally Pinned by @majikbeenz at PurelyHer.com. For this design just pull out all of the colors you want to use from your nail polish box and place a few drops of each on onto a piece of wax paper. After painting the nail in your base color, use a marbling tool to add dots in the shape of a heat. If you don’t have a marbling tool, the end of a bobby pin works just as well (as demonstrated in my post here). In the original Pin, Majik kept their dots separated. I found it easier to allow the dots to overlap slightly. This makes it way easier for beginners.
Another easy nail art design for beginners is a simple heart outline. I used a gold background (a little less obvious than hot pink for those of us who like to celebrate Valentine’s Day in a subtle way) and a black accent.
I bought a kit that has the pinstriping brush and the marbling brush together like the one pictured. The best way to apply a thin line is with a pinstriping brush. It’s easiest to start by forming the round tops of the heart. Place the brush so that you are “pulling” it, not pushing, to get the best result.
