Off With Your Head

Queen of Hearts Nail Art

Queen of Hearts nails never get old.  I got these cute little crown charms and HAD to do something with the Queen of Hearts.  They are so perfect for the design!

 Crown CharmI received the crown charms from LadyQueen in exchange for an honest review.  Ten charms come in the set.  The three prong crown is perfect for any Alice in Wonderland, card suite, or queen/princess design.  I like that the crowns aren't too big and can be a nice accent piece.  The prongs do stick out a little, but not so much that it is annoying.  Just keep your claws away from knit sweaters.

Nail Polish
Polish Used:
  • Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Rapid Red
  • Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Black to Black
  • Bundle Monster Stamping Lacquer - Liquid Gold
  • Bundle Monster Stamping Lacquer - Black Noir
  • Base and top coats
Other Supplies:
  • hēhē stamping plate - 026 (Harry Potter Gryffindor)
  • Rubber stamper
  • Gold crown charms
  • Krazy Glue
  • Nail art brush

I debated going crazy with this look and adding a ton of rhinestones to each nail, but decided to keep it clean and simple.  To create this look:

  1. Apply the base colors - index and ring in red, the rest in black.

  2. Use gold stamping polish to stamp the checkered design on the middle finger, and the crisscross lines on the pinky.  Use black stamping polish to stamp the filigree pattern on the ring finger.

  3. For the index finger, paint half a heart using black polish, then leave a negative a heart on the other side, filling in the black border.
