Heart Patches Nail Art Design
This nail design is symbolic. I've had my heart broken too many times, I don't know if it's still working. I sometimes feel my heart is a quilt, mended with patches, just so it could keep going. I'm sorry for being cheesy. It's just that this particular nail design says a lot about my heart.
Anyway, my idea was to come up with something simple but with a twist. I took inspiration from my personal feelings and came up with the concept of heart patches.
Base color is 2 coats of OPI Fly from the Minaj Collection. Application is a breeze and opaque in 2 coats. This is my favorite among the colors in the collection.
I hand painted the design using acrylic paints, a detailing and striping nail art brush.
I must say that I truly find this shade gorgeous. I was staring at my nails after polishing and I didn't want to lose its beauty by coming up with a Valentine's inspired nail design that is colorful. What I wanted is to enhance the color and figured that using only black and white can help me achieve my objective. I think it did.
On every nail, I painted one big heart and one small heart. The big ones are outlined in black and I made stitch marks all around the heart as how you would see on patches. I used a striping nail art brush for the stitches. No outlines for the small hearts because I wanted to emphasize the heart patches. Oh, and I added a few white dots on random places just because. :)
Here's a close-up look:
I personally love how this turned out and I hope you liked it too. And I also hope this will send out the message that although hearts can be broken, what matters is stitching the broken parts back together so it could love again.
