Nude with hearts




Hi guys! How are you all doing? :) I've finally finished all my exams for the first semester, so more time for blogging again! :)
For this post I wanted to share this semi-nude mani with you that I made last year. I wanted to make hearts on my nails by making a template with tape and this heartshaped paper punch that I have, but the punch had a hard time getting through the tape, so all I was left with was a little wrinkled, misshapen hole... So I cut out the shape myself from a fold up piece of tape and that's how I got to this design with V-shaped French tip. I still have to get used to nude nails, but I kind of like it like this. ^^ For the rest of my nails I was looking for a smokey purple, the polish that came nearest to what I wanted was Bourjois Bleu Asphalte. But I if I had Frederiksberg from WIC Herôme at the time, I certainly would've gone for that instead, I love that color so much! :)
So what are your thoughts on these nude nails? Would you wear them yourself?

  30. I love these! Heart desing works so well with nude nails too (: I've also tried tape desing with paper punch, and it was much easier than I though :o But I had to took really long pease of tape or it cracked..

  31. these are so unbelievably adorable! the sharp black lines of the chevron and smoothness of the heart on the nude nail are amazing! I do acrylic & gel nails, so i dont have the chance to play with lacquer.. seeing your posts is making me want to get into it. Keep the posts coming!

  35. Really cute, but I think I would go with a nude colored base polish underneath the heart. Great job though! <3

    P.S. I would love if anyone would check out my new blog that I just started and give me some feedback! Thanks :)

  44. Punching thru tape is always difficult and end up tearing the tape.. try pasting the tape on some magazine cover (thicker paper) and punch? i tried and it works.. :)
