TUTORIAL | Diamond outline nail art

Happy Pancake day! As it is Valentines Eve, I am sharing with you all another heart love inspired look and what better way to do it by loving your nails with Mavala. The Swiss brand is free from Formaldehyde, Toluene and Camphor which is why I love this brand so much.

What you will need: A pale pink shade (I used 291 Pink City by Mavala), a rich postbox red shade (I used 286 Red River) and some small nail diamonds.


Step one: Apply two coats of the pale pink shade, this will be your base so make sure it is opaque!


Step two: Using the red colour, take the excess off your brush and paint from the outer side of the nail and angling inwards towards the centre of the nail, repeat this on the other side.

Don’t worry if this isn’t the neatest as you are going to cover it up with the gems!


Step three: Take the diamantes and place them along the curved edge of your painted heart.

Wait until this design is fully dry before sealing it in with a clear polish otherwise you could disrupt the diamantes!

If you are happy with the design at step two then you don’t have to add the diamantes, I only wanted to be a little extra as that’s the only bling I am seeing on my hand this Valentines day 😂

Happy Valentines xx

Love and (high)light✌
