Step-by-step

It’s really a simple three step process to create these glitter textured nails. Just

  1. Paint
  2. Dip
  3. Brush

Style tips

  • Glitter can be messy so do your nails over a piece of paper so you can clean up easily. Even better, do your nails outside!
  • Seal the glitter with a topcoat, though I found it wore ok without it. You’ll have less glitter fall if you use a topcoat.

Blue Valentine – Easy heart nail art

Nail Romance - Blue Purple multi color nails with heart nail art

I’m not really into Valentine’s Day, though I do love hearts. This heart nail art is quick and easy to do, but won’t be too in your face for Valentine’s Day.

Blue Valentine – how to get the look

I first painted my nails in a mix of blues and purples. I couldn’t decide which color so I used them all in this ombre manicure.

Nail polishes used:

Heart Nail Art

The hearts were inspired by …Love Maegan‘s nail art and I’ve also used the same technique on this simple heart manicure.

Using Hello Darling Dreamboat on the dark nails, and Bloom Emily Green Navy on the light nails, paint an X-shape that falls off the edge of your nails.

Style Secret

I use this nail art a few days into my manicure as it’s a great way to cover up any chips or wear on the edge of your nails. Just paint one heart for a sweet feature nail too.

Do you get into Valentine’s Day or do you play it a little more low key?

Ombre manicure: Blues and purples

You know for those days when you can’t decide what colour to wear? Why not wear them all!

I love all these polishes and I’ll show you some fun nail art with this manicure next week. If I had to pick a standout, the Bloom polish, part of the Emily Green collaboration, has incredible depth of color and is a beautiful formula to use. It’s opaque in one coat, though I’m wearing two thin coats of all the colors for this multicolor manicure.

Have you tried any of these shades? Which is your favorite?

Loving… The Blues

Nail Romance - Manicure Monday blues

Nail Romance - Hello Darling and BYS blue polish

Feeling the blues so this manicure is just the cure.

I’ve used BYS Magnetic Cobalt on my ring finger as a feature nail. While I love the colour and the polish is great, opaque in one coat, I wasn’t really seeing the magnetic effect.

The other blue is Hello Darling L’ete from their new summer collection. This colour goes on a dream and is the perfect azure blue. Hurry as I think this colour is selling fast. You may have spotted some Art Class decals in the background. More nail art fun coming soon.

I love just featuring one nail in a manicure. Just one nail is quick and easy to do and still have fun with your nails. Maybe that’s why it’s Nail Romance instead of Nails Romance?

Do you love a feature nail? Have you tried magnetic polish?

Loving… pretty pastel nails

As well as loving bright nails, I’m falling for soft pastel shades. Just as mint and peach have entered my wardrobe this year, so have pastel shades featured on my fingertips.

Nail Romance’s pick of pastel polishes

Try saying that 10 times quickly!

Hello Darling’s Not Your Nanna’s Nightie collection features seven delicious shades. Nail Romance loves Mint Slice and Butter Wouldn’t Melt.

Pretty Pastels from Face of Australia is a super affordable range that makes a multi coloured mani easy to do. Nail Romance loves Would you like some Orange Sherbet? and Once in a Blue Moon.

L’Oreal’s Miss Candy collection features more delicious pastel shades. These polishes have a larger brush which means I can change colour in just two brushstrokes. Too easy. Nail Romance loves Monaco Roses and Riviera Lavender.

These candy coloured nails look good enough to eat! You can find more pastel nail-spiration on the Pastel Nail Romance Pinterest board.
