Nail Art: Love

Some people believe that Valentine's Day is only associated with romantic love. But love comes in different forms and I'd like to believe that Valentine's Day is a celebration of love, in any form. And so, I'd like to send that message across through a very straightforward and simple Valentine's nail art design.

Take a look:

Love Nail Art Design

I went back to red, the color of love and my eternal favorite color. I decided on 2 accent nails and wrote down that four-letter that inspires us all on one nail and painted a few hearts on the other.

I used 2 coats of Dazzle Dry Rapid Red on all my nails and also applied 2 layers of Dazzle Dry White Lightning for the accent nails.

I hand painted the word "love" and the hearts using acrylic paints and a detailing nail art brush. I approximated the color of the paint with Rapid Red by mixing Liquitex Basics Cadmium Red Meduim Hue and a small dab of black.

Here's a closer look on how I scribbled "love":

This would have been much easier with a red pen or a nail art pen compared to using a detailing nail art brush. But it's always good to keep challenging yourself, right? I always find painting letters on my nails rather difficult.

My idea was to stretch the word so that it would touch both sides of the nail. And I also chose to place it near the free edge. I think it makes it more dramatic that way.

Being single sometimes find a way to make me feel sad, especially during the day of hearts. And so being reminded that love comes in all sorts of form actually eases that feeling of loneliness. I want this nail art to be a reminder of that. :)

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone! May love find and inspire you, everyday.
