Drowning Hearts This Valentine's Day

by - 25 January

So Valentine's Day is fast approaching with only 6 days till the end of January, I started thinking about my nails for the day.

I call these nails 'drowning hearts' as they really look like they're drowning, perfect for those of you who are not really enthusiastic about a day of hearts and flowers. This was a really easy nail art design, I was inspired to do it after seeing one on Pinterest, and of course I pinned it straight away. If you like my posts you'll probably be pinterested in my pins too!

I used:


  • Base Coat (Any)

  • Elf - Innocent (Perfect neutral base colour, of course, you can use any base/background you wish)

  • Rimmel Lycra Pro - Coral Romance (Its brush is useful for heart design accuracy)

  • Hair grip/Bobby pin/Kirby grip (My favourite nail tool as starred in one of my favourite posts)

1. Start off with your base coat.

2. Paint on your base/background colour (Elf - Innocent).

3. Using your hair grip end dot on your heart shape on each nail. Don't worry about it being perfect, when it comes it filling it in all will be perfect!

4. Fill this in using a good nail polish brush, preferably a nail art brush for accuracy, I am using my Rimmel Pro nail polish brush. I like to use tools that are accessible to everyone. I don't always use my actual nail art pens when I don't have to, to make it possible for everyone to do this nail design without having to go all out and buy nail tools.
Dont Blob it on Do Brush it on

5. Do the same with all your nails! They
Keep in mind your baby nail, it is going to need a smaller heart.

And Finally Seal the Deal with a Top coat

I think this is perfect for everyday and even for Valentine's enthusiasts who, I hope, won't be put off by the title. Hope you've enjoyed this post as much as I did painting my nails. See you in my next post, Ready for the Run!
