NOTD | Valentine's Nails: Heart Tips

Heart tips:
No7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour in Devil's Delight
Base colour:
Essie Nail Lacquer in Neo Whimsical

I've seen this nail design around for a while but I had never attempted it before so I thought Valentine's Day would be the perfect time to try it out! I was a little nervous about getting the heart design right but I found these were actually pretty simple to do. I'll definitely need a bit more practice doing my right hand though... Damn my non-ambidextrous hands!

For the base colour I used Essie Neo Whimsical which is a very pretty pale purple-pink colour and for the tips I dug out No7 Devil's Delight which I had in a Christmas gift pack a couple of years ago. I'm not usually a fan of bright reds all over my nails which is why I had never actually tried this polish before now but I was pleasantly surprised with it. The brush is thick and flat which makes doing this design much easier and the consistency is brilliant. It only took one stoke for each curve of the heart which was great because I think if I had to go over them, these wouldn't look half as neat!

If you'd like to try these out for yourself, you can find the tutorial I used here. Hope you had a lovely, relaxing Valentine's day whatever you did!


  1. This is such a gorgeous look, kind of wish I'd seen it in time for Valentine's day, haha! Although I'm sure it'd look lovely year-round, and you could play around with the colours, too (I'm also not a huge fan of red nails) xx

    1. Aww thank you so much! <3 Yes, I saw someone do them with neon colours on instagram so I think I'll have to try something similar in the Summer! :) x

  2. Aw they look so cute! Hope you had a great valentines day
