Nail Candy Love Letter Collection Manicure

today i created a nail art mani with the Nail Candy Love Letter collection! the Love Letter collection consists of two pens with two colors each... four colors in total. check out yesterday's post to find out all about Nail Candy pens :)

these polishes do take a long time to dry, so make sure you have ample time to let the polish dry between coats. i actually let it dry for awhile and then applied Seche Vite topcoat between layers... something in my body chemistry keeps polishes from drying quickly so i have to be more careful than most people!

here are what the Love Letter pens look like...




and here's the mani... keep scrolling to see how i created it!




nail art is quite difficult for me, and these pens definitely make it a lot easier! to create this look, i started out painting the whole nail with the red jelly. i then used the brush side of the pink creme to create a chevron French mani. i used the Micro-Tip applicator of the white pearl to outline the chevron, then added a dot to the point of the chevron with the Micro-Tip of the hot pink pearl!

the polish will be somewhat 3D when using the Micro-Tip, so make sure it's fairly dry before adding topcoat... the topcoat will help smooth everything together.

check out www.NailCandyPen.com to see all their products... they also have a store locator so you can check and see if any of your local stores carry them! this collection isn't available on the Nail Candy vending website yet, but keep checking back! the pens retail for $10 each and come with two polishes in each pen. for application and use tips, check out the Nail Candy Q&A page!

hope all of your weeks have gotten off to a great start! Ria :)
