Week Of Love Valentines Nail Art Challenge - Candy Heart Sayings.

Hello everyone. How are you all? I am glad to be home this evening, I don't like Mondays!

This week I am taking part in the Week Of Love Valentines Nail Art Challenge, so everyday until Friday I shall be posting Valentines themed manicures. I'm really excited to show you what I have come up with.

The first theme is Candy Heart Sayings. Click below to see what I came up with.
This was the theme I was least inspired by, so I just decided to paint some Love Heart sweets. I'm not sure if there are different versions in different countries, but in the UK this is what they are like.

First I painted all my nails white using Barry M - Matt White.

I then painted on the circles using Miners - Marshmallow (thumb), Avon - Lemon Sugar (index finger), Models Own - Apple Pie (middle finger), Essie - Under Where? (ring finger) and an unnamed Color Club on my little finger.

Then using China Glaze - Life Is Rosy I painted an outline of a heart within each circle and then wrote my message.

Writing that small is really tricky!

I wasn't totally sold on these, but that is probably just me being a perfectionist as I got a lot of compliments whilst wearing these from random strangers lol. People recognised what they were supposed to be which was a bonus!

Let me know what you think in the comments.

Thanks for looking.


  1. I love how you've done these! I like the circle and then the outline of the heart. :)

  2. I think when people can figure out what they are, you should do happy dances in your head :) I always am so hard on my looks but then when someone can tell what it is without me explaining it, I usually stop worrying. You did GREAT on these! I think they are marvelous!

    1. Lol yes I am the same, if someone knows what they are it puts my mind at rest a bit :). Thank you lovely.

  3. We are our own worst critics. I think these are cute!
