Window To My Heart

I just posted yesterday but here's another! I exercise no self-control and couldn't resist posting this right away :)

Personally, it's too soon for me to pull out the big guns for Valentine-themed manicures. With that in mind I opted for something simple: nude hearts with a black frame. It was pretty difficult to execute this design because it was all free-handed and I got pretty impatient. The perfect heart is quite challenging to paint ten times and most of them are still far from perfect. Overall though, I'm pleased with the outcome. I think it looks very chic! (:


I started off with Essie Topless & Barefoot and free-handed the hearts with a black striping polish.
