Love Doodles


Hi everyone!

Today's design was completely inspired by a new polish I bought: NYC Ink Stain.
When I bought it, a friend of mine said "Oh that's so cool, you could do like writing on your nails because the colour resembles ink!" And I thought that was a really good idea :)


I didn't want to do all writing on my nails - I wanted some doodles like I had distractedly drew random things on them. I decided on love doodles because I was in a childish/romantic mood :)

I first used three coats of OPI Alpine Snow, and then I painted on the hearts and words with a small brush.


I quite like how they turned out - it would have been better if I had thought more about the placing of the hearts instead of just jumping right in as I always do, but it's a lesson learned (or probably not actually in my case).


I hope you like my design and thanks for reading :)

Ink Stain is indeed gorgeous! It's such a great vibrant blue! And yes, I'm really glad my friend got that idea - I'm honestly not sure if I would have thought of it so all credit goes to her :)

Robin said...

Thank you! It's really amazing how much it resembles ink (but otherwise I would have been a bit dissapointed in the name haha)

I love the doodly look! The "sun" heart on your pinky finger (if that makes any sense haha) is the cutest :)

Robin said...

Haha it makes perfect sense, I know what you mean! I actually re-did that nail because I wasn't happy with the hearts I had, and then I came up with the sun heart :)

Thank you Emily! Haha your comment is making me think back of when I was 16 and bored in class so I doodled all over my notes! (which I actually still do in class now woops)
