Disappearing Heartbeat Nail Design

Press Sample

This is the manicure that I wore on Valentines day, inspired by so many others that have done the heartbeat manicure, (see below) but I wanted to add something new to the design, my own little twist. So I broke out one of my favorite, save-for-special-occasions-only nail polishes, the color changing Lipstick Yakuza to create a special disappearing act.

First I created an easy and fun base, a contrasting sponged tip. To get this look I put a white undie underneath a light coat of pink. Using a tiny piece of dry kitchen sponge, I lightly applied a darker pink to the tips in 3 thin coats, making sure to leave some of the lighter pink poking through in places.

Disappearing Heartbeat Base

Have I mentioned that I am bad at drawing hearts? That’s why I grabbed my Sticky Nails Accent Nail Art Stencils and created this perfect heart on my middle nail – easy-peasy. Last I used a stripping brush to create a “heartbeat” line across all of the nails. The first picture is of the polish at room temperature or warm, second is of the polish getting cold, and last and darkest design is when the polish is cold. This design was so much fun every time I washed my hands!

  1. Gorgeous design! So fun that you did this with a color changing polish 🙂 And I adore the base “gradient”, it reminds me of fire and smoke and wildly splashing water! (yes, it reminds me of a lot haha)
