I had HOPED to use a plastic baggie to make my own little heart stickers, but that was a total flop! I made them last night and today, but when I tried to pull them off, they were really difficult to get off and then they tore. :( They were really cute, too....
So I had to paint the little hearts directly on my nails. I started out with Sally Hansen Double Duty Base and Top Coat. Blues are notorious for staining nails, so don't skip the base coat! Then I use a single coat of Pure Ice Celestial. To make the Denim look, I swirled together Pure Ice Celestial and Splash with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Marine Scene, Blue It and Blue Me away in rough marbly swirls. Then using a sponge, I sponged that mixture onto the nails. They really do look pretty denim-y!
The rough sponging also is hiding a secret....my thumbnail is being held together with a teabag! The corner of it is splitting, so I used "The Teabag Method" found here. So far, it's working!
Anyway, after the sponging, I used my black nail striping brush to do the outlining of the hearts like this...
I used other striping brushes I have from Kiss Nail Art and L.A. Colors to fill in the hearts, then went back for some details and touch up on the black.
