February Nail Art Challenge - Day 1: Hearts!

I contemplated continuing with the 31 Day Challenge today, but thought better of it when I realized that  today was my last day to pretend like I will keep on schedule with the February Challenge. I'm off to a great start! BUT, I made it! The monthly challenge only "requires" you to complete your nail art between the days listed so I'm still alright. Phew! The theme for today's challenge is hearts and as I just recently did a very Valentines-y mani with a heart, I wasn't quite ready for the pinks and reds again. As shown in my last post, I have now acquired/hoarded some of Lime Crime's fabulous (and summery) nail colors and I couldn't resist using all of them in this look! I wanted something a bit non-traditional and I think that this mani accomplishes that. Maybe? What do you think?  

These were super simple to create. I used my trusty detailing brush (that has become my favorite of all my nail art brushes!) and created lots of lines. At first I was worried about there being a consistent distance between each line, but as I progressed farther into the mani I realized that I liked it a little bit messy and free hand looking. I think you could probably also use a pin or toothpick to create the lines. 
I've also added these to a link up hosted by Tara over at Fabulous but Evil. Check out her blog for fabulous manis by some fabulous ladies!

You should also check out this awesome blogger of the month award that is put on by the talented Debbie at The Crumpet! As time goes on, there will be many talented entries, but I thought I would give it a go and enter it myself! :)

Happy Polishing! :)
