Who needs cupids and arrows when instead, you all you need is to wiggle your fingertips, painted with flirtatious eyelashes, at your beloved Valentine?! When we spotted this adorably sassy manicure on Hannah Bronfman, the queen of covetable nail art, we instantly had to recreate it. It wasn’t without some trial and error and a few strokes of the brush first. Practice makes perfect and we’ve perfected this one for you. Wink, wink.
- black nail polish
- #0 paint brush
- 5/8″ wide washi tape
- nail polish remover
- cotton pads
Start by cutting 1 inch strips of washi tape. Cut a flat half circle out of the top of each one and tape them three quarter of the way down your nails. You can also put the tape all the way at the top of the nail, which will leave just a thin line.
Make sure the edge of the tape is adhered to your nails. Dab large dollops of black polish onto a thick piece of card stock. When picking a polish, it’s important to find a highly pigmented one – one that would only require a single stroke to get enough color. We like this one.
Using a very fine, high quality brush makes drawing fine lines much easier. I like using a #0 sable brush – they can be pretty expensive but if you clean them well, you can use them over and over again. Use the card stock to practice drawing lines and testing the pressure of your brushstrokes. Starting from left side of the nail, draw your curved line using the tape as a guide.
A tip is to put the weight of the brush against the tape side. Any excess of nail polish will spill over onto the tape, giving you a clean line on the nail.
Fill the brush with more polish and paint on lashes with 5 fine lines. Carefully peel away the tape.
If the brush is getting a bit clumpy or loosing its fineness, clean it between a cotton pad well soaked in nail polish remover. Continue the sane process on the rest of the nails.
To make an evil eye cut a piece of washi tape in the shape of a football, with the length matching the width of the top of your nail. Tape it right below your nail line. Trace the top and bottom line with nail polish.
Remove the tape and draw a circle in the middle, filling it in with polish. Allow one hand before starting on the next. And if you’re very ambidextrous, you can have a friend help you with the other set of nails. Allow to dry completely before applying a top coat.
Bat those eyelashes, ladies!

Love nail art which doesn’t actually need to paint the whole base nail! x
I love this! Being a visual artist and a tactile person I love the idea of having eyes on your fingers. There is so much of the world I see through my fingers. I also imagine for blind people their fingers (and ears) become their eyes. The eye symbolism transcends so many meanings for people. I recently made these hand carved cast rings of the all seeing eye, eye of providence, 3rd eye, whatever you want to call it. It’s a universal symbol and anyone can adopt their own meaning to it. It serves a similar representation of having an eye on your finger. http://mkmk.bigcartel.com/product/visionary-ring
What a great and funny idea. Love it and have! to try it.
Nice! I will try
Thank you very much I like it very
Reminds me of Lu Lu Frost jewellery 🙂
One word–> Amazing!!
Exremetly helpful article, please write more.
"The War Powers Resolution is transparently unconstitutional"How do you get that? Congress, as part of their exclusive power over the declaration of war, simply allowed 60 days for the President to get their approval for committing acts of war, to allow for the fact that getting nearly anything through the legislative process is slow.The power to tell a President to stop making war is a necessary part of Congress's exclusive power to declare war.
This “Advanced Style” site has been making the usual rounds lately and (to me) there seems to be a highly condescending air surrounding the whole affair.Isn’t it already obvious that the elderly know how to choose colors and put on hats? Yeah, I think so.By taking their photos and by stating the obvious (“we spotted this woman and her beautiful pink sweater…”) the site objectifies seniors and makes them as dull as everyone else trudging down the chewing gum-caked sidewalks of New York City. Pathetic!
That’s an ingenious way of thinking about it.
