Hey everyone! Welcome to my first post of 2014. I hope you had a good new year, mine was going to be just a quiet night in but we had a few odd goings on in my house involving weird noises, a santa hat that appeared from nowhere and some missing coal. Sounds vague but that's all I know, it was very weird! Nevertheless it was a good night and I'm slightly sad to see the back of 2013, but excited to see what this year will bring. You may notice that this should have probably gone up on tuesday (for tutorial tuesday) but as I did my favourites of 2013 post I decided I'd put the tutorial up today instead, hope you don't mind! Today's tutorial is the fourth and final tutorial that I created for Barry M, and I decided to do it based on these nails by Dressed Up Nails. Mine are absolutely nowhere near as good as hers (as can be expected as she is awesome) but I hope I've still done them justice, and I can't wait to see your recreations.
Step 1: Start with 1 thin layer of Barry M - Countess
Step 2: Mark out using striping tape where you want your crosses to be
Step 3: Paint over the striping tape using Barry M - Duchess
Step 4: Remove the striping tape
Step 5: Using a thin brush and Barry M - Countess, paint hearts in the gaps
Step 6: Finish off with a topcoat to seal in your design
