Digit-al Dozen DOES Love & Heartbreak: Abstract Heartbreak

In Digit-al Dozen, Misa, Nails, OPI, Sinful Colors, Wet n Wild by Jacki14 Comments

Hello, readers! It’s Day 3 in this month’s Digit-al Dozen art week. The theme is Love & Heartbreak and I’ve shown you two “love” themed manis so far and changed it up today with one that is more representative of “heartbreak.”

I loved the idea of using crackle nail polish to do a broken heart and thought that some sugar spun nails paired with it would make a cool look. I think it’s kind of abstract, and like that my heart didn’t turn out perfect.

I sugar spun light gray, charcoal gray, and black over a dusty teal color and really like how it turned out! Are you seeing a texture theme of this week as well? I didn’t top coat this because I wanted the texture to be a big part of the mani.

I used:
Duri Rejuvacote
2 coats of Misa Dirty, Sexy, Money
1 coat of Poshe top coat
Sugar spun with a toothpick:
 Sinful Colors Cool Gray, Sinful Colors Smokin, and Wet n Wild Black Creme
OPI Black Shatter for the heart
What do you think? I love how this looks in person and am wearing it as a full mani today! Thanks for reading, come back tomorrow for another Love & Heartbreak design!

    OK, I love this idea–and you have the best spun-sugar I've ever seen! Usually it's thicker, gloppy 'strings' that just look weird and like they took forever to dry. I love your thinner lines, and it especially looks great with the colours you chose. 😀

    Oh, wow, I love this, Jacki! Awesome, awesome use of textures. Your spun sugar is so smooth and fine, and the broken heart is such a creative touch. I'll bet this really did look amazing in person!
