Hey everyone! In this video I will be showing you how to create this nail art design. I think this design is perfect for every day wear and also Valentine’s Day. I was inspired by an awesome letter set that I saw on Shutterstock and decided to turn it into some really cute nail art.
So if you want to see how I created this nail art design then keep on watching. Start by painting your nails with a light pink polish. I used Feel The Breeze by China Glaze. Then take some tape and put it diagonally across all of your nails.
You can use striping tape or scotch tape. I used striping tape because for the life of me I could not find my scotch tape. Scotch tape is better for this because then you don’t have to worry about going over the tiny little striping tape line.
Then using a blue polish fill in half of your nail. I’m using Too Yacht To Handle by China Glaze. You can do this on either side. It’s totally up to you. And you might need two coats depending on what polish you’re using.
And then as soon as you can, remove the tape very carefully. I also should have mentioned that your nail polish should be completely dry before you put the tape on. Then apply a clear polish. It can be a base coat.
It can be a top coat. It doesn’t matter. I’m doing this for two reasons. Number one, it’s going to even out those two layers and number two, I’m going to be doing the design with acrylic paint. If I make a mistake, it’s really easy to remove the paint with water or alcohol.
For the design I am using black and white acrylic paint. I prefer the Apple Barrel brand because it’s really cheap. I’m also using some really tiny brushes. These brushes are just generic nail art brushes.
They are nothing fancy. One of them I cut off some of the extra bristles, and the other one just came how it is. For the letter L make a black horizontal line across your nail. Then take white and make a vertical line to make the L shape.
Everyone should know what an L looks like. I’m assuming anyway. Then you can make that line a little bit thicker and make it into a rectangle. And then on the other side of the bottom part of the L make a half circle.
And then you can go back and make sure everything is opaque and that everything is straight. For the letter O use white to make two half circles. Make the straight sides of the half circles face each other, but make sure that there’s a nice gap.
Using black make curved lines to connect the half circles on the top and the bottom. For the letter V, it’s pretty simple, just draw on a letter V. Do that using black, but make sure it’s a little bit off center because we’re going to be adding a white accent on the side.
For the white, you want the top and the bottom to be horizontally parallel, but the side needs to follow the slant on the V. Did that make sense? I hope that made sense. Make this as wide as you need it to be to make the V look like it’s centered on your nail.
For the letter E you want to start by making three parallel horizontal lines, but you want the center one to be a little bit shorter than the top and the bottom one. Make those lines using black. And then using white, you want to connect those lines using some little rectangles.
And then just like we did on the L, we want to make two little half circles on the top and the bottom of the E. And on your thumb, make a heart. Draw half a heart and completely fill it in with white.
And for the other side of the heart, make a small black outline. When you’re finished with the design, you can apply your favorite top coat. I used Out The Door by INM. I hope you enjoyed the design and the video.
