Gradient hearts tutorial
It was about time to publish this tutorial I promised more than a month ago.
Firstly I'd like to say, that this is not my idea. I saw it on YouTube ( click HERE), and because I really liked I decided to make a tutorial, with slightly different method.
*Because I had some issues with copyright I made a little bit different colour combination than in my previous post*
Here is the look I made:
Things you'll need:
-1 light nail polish and 3 for the gradient
-a bit of patience!
Now, let's get this nail party started!!!
Start off with light colour base!
I decided for Orly Pure Porcelain:
Prepare your protective/duct tape!
Follow steps from 1-4
Step 1: Fold one end of tape, to get one none sticky end. It will come in handy when you'll try to "open the heart"
Step 2. Stick tape on your hand. Tape will lose a bit of stickiness, this lowers the possibility of ending up with glue residues on your nail, and prevents damaging base colour.
Step 3: Fold tape in half and draw half of heart on it. Cut it out!
Step 4: Unfold and paste tape on your nail. Try to put it in the middle. I think I've never succeeded =).
Prepare for the gradient!
I used China Glaze Ahoy, Revlon scented Mad about Mango and BarryM Peach Melba
Follow steps from 5-7
Apply gradient on your nails!
I did 2 coats of sponging, here is a picture after fist sponging:
Remove tape when sponging is still wet!
I was in a hurry when I made this tutorial, and because I haven't waited long enough my colour base is damaged because base was still a bit wet. Thank God for top coats!
Apply top coat!
As you can see, it didn't end up perfectly. Hearts are everywhere but in the middle, and my ring finger heart is completely crocked! I still like this gradient heart look despite that. Will you try it?
