Hi everyone! Today I want to show you another look I created using nail vinyls I received from We Heart Nail Art. We Heart Nail Art is an online store bringing imported brands to South African nail addicts. What I really love about this is that I can shop for these rather exclusive brands from the comfort of my chair. Goods are delivered via courier, so no waiting for your package to come through snail mail and possibly getting stuck at customs and then still having to pay more when it finally arrives in your mailbox. The owner, Shann, is also always on the lookout for new exciting products she can offer. If you’re a nail art lover like me, you *need* to visit this store on a regular basis! Let me show you the look I created.
I started off with a base coat of Revlon Calcium Gel Nail Hardener to protect my nails. I painted 3 coats of piCture pOlish Fool’s Gold on all of my nails (swatch and review here). Fool’s Gold dries really well, so I didn’t have to wait very long before placing my vinyl. Check out my initial review of the We Heart Nail Art nail vinyls here, there are also some application tips if you’re new to using vinyls. I placed the vinyl with my tweezer and used a make up sponge and Zoya Tomoko to sponge over the vinyl. Once I was happy with the opacity I removed the vinyl with my tweezer. This was my first attempt and I was really pleased with how easily the vinyl removed and the clean lines left behind! This vinyl is GORGEOUS! Sponging over the vinyl is a really good trick, that way your polish over the vinyl isn’t too thick and there is less chance of it bleeding under the vinyl or stringing when you remove the vinyl. I sealed everything in with a coat of Seche Vite.
We Heart Nail Art will be selling their vinyl sheets for R50.00 each. The number of vinyls per sheet may vary depending on the design. Can’t make up your mind? Order a variety sheet! Check out We Heart Nail Art’s shop and their other social media channels:
I was super in love with this look! Although I was nervous about using vinyls before, I think I might be in love with this new nail art technique. Have you used vinyls before? What do you think of this look? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
