Polka Dots and a Metal Heart Mani Tutorial

heart and polka dot mani

I have been waiting for over a year to use these cute metal shapes I found at Forever 21 for a super deal. I was unsure as to how to use them and found a nail glue on Amazon with high feedback ratings. Now I am so excited to start creating more fun designs. My first design is inspired by Valentine’s Day.

For this manicure, you will need metal heart shapes of some sort. You will also need nail glue, mauve/burgundy, pink, and Metamorphic nail polish from Julep. The last item you will need is a dotter or toothpick to make dots.

Start with two coats of the mauve/burgundy nail polish. Let that dry for a few minutes, and then put two drops of nail glue on your middle finger. You can use a tweezers or just your fingers, and place the heart on the center of your middle finger. Put a few drops of pink polish on a piece of paper, and use the dotter or toothpick to create pink dots on each finger except the middle finger. Finish off the polka dot nails with the Metamorphic top coat. All finished!

I hope you enjoyed this mani tutorial. Please let me know if you have any inspiring ideas for future tutorials. Have a wonderful day!

Bye, lovelies!

    • A lot of the time I just paint my left hand with my right hand and take a picture. Sometimes I do both hands if the design is simple enough. You should try it!

  1. That is such a good idea! I’m just useless I don’t have the patience to let my nails dry I always have to do something I think the only time I paint my nails is when I go out haha with my job my nails just get ruined aswell! I do have a gel kit at home but need to get back into using it more! hehe thanks for the advice though really is such a good idea!
