Nail Tutorial: We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together


In light of Taylor Swift's 3rd record, I decided to create a celebratory nail tutorial. Considering how the album is named after the fiery shade, I felt that there wasn't a more appropriate color for me to choose  than red for the base. This nail tutorial is particularly dedicated to the one song she has released so far-- "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together".

I'll be honest, and say that at first, I didn't like the song. I thought it was different from her usual style, but eventually came to fall in love with its catchiness.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED: 3 different nail polishes--red, gold glitter, and a black nail art one. I used 'Big Apple Red' by OPI and 'Only Gold for Me' by SEPHORA's OPI collection. You will also need a toothpick, or pointed tool (I do not recommend pens).

1. Paint your nails red.
2. Using the black nail art polish, paint a black heart on to your ring finger.
3. Take the gold glitter polish, and dab a drop of the polish on to a piece of paper.
4. Using your toothpick or pointed tool, pick up pieces of glitter, and place it on the still-wet black heart.
5. OPTIONAL: After you have filled in the heart to your liking, using the black nail art brush, carefully outline the heart. The outline will better define your design, and help the heart look more put-together.

Who else can't wait for October 22nd?
