Digit-al Dozen Does Love & Heartbreak: Simple Heartbreak

For my third Digit-al Dozen Love and Heartbreak mani, I was going for dark and ominous. I didn’t expect it to be quite so subtle! You have to squint to see the nail art…but I really do like it. This is two coats of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Pat on the Black with a-england Perceval hearts.

Heartbroken Valentine Mani: Sally Hansen Pat on the Black and a-england Perceval (work / play / polish)

Pat on the Black is a super vampy burgundy/plum, almost black. Wow. GINORMOUS brush. I have really small nailbeds so normally I have trouble with large, pro brushes, but it was really easy. It was a bit streaky on the first coat, but opaque in two.  If I wasn’t doing nail art, I may have used a third coat. It’s soooo shiny! I stamped the hearts in a-england Perceval with VL001. Then I filled in the stamp on the ring finger and thumb with Perceval. I went back in with Pat on the Black and “broke” the hearts.

The final look is so undercover. It’s a nice surprise when my nails hit the right light.

    I love the subtle stamping. Sometimes it is fun to have art that doesn’t pop, but hides.
