Take a look:
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.
