How Deep is Your Love? (Pond Manicure)

There has been a lot of this type of manicure floating around the interwebs these days and I knew I had to try it out because it's just so darn pretty!

This is all about layering your polish and your nail art.

You need to choose a polish that is a "jelly" meaning that it is rather sheer when you apply it. This will allow you to do the layering necessary to get the effect.

I started with one coat of a teal jelly from LA Colors Color Craze and then I drew in a few hearts (just 2 or 3). Then, once that is dry, you apply another layer of the polish and then draw on more hearts. Keep doing this until you've built 3 or 4 layers of hearts.

And just because I love me a good shimmer, I added on a topcoat of an LA Colors white shimmer.

There is an amazing tutorial for this over at Adventures in Acetone (one of the fabulous blogs that I follow), so check it out if you want to try this nail art.

Happy painting friends!


  1. I really like the layers. You are very creative and your colour pallet is incredible.

    1. Thanks! This one was really a direct take from the tutorial but I'll take the compliment :)
