Summer Fun Challenge - Summer Lovin'

Hello everyone :)
Today I have my second post for the Summer Fun Challenge! Today's post is based on the theme of Summer Lovin'. As soon as I saw this theme I knew exactly what I wanted to do but had no idea to do it, so I played around for a while and came up with something I loved! here's what I came up with...
I've wanted to try out some nail art using naked nail as well as polish, so I thought this was the perfect time to do it! I was originally going to use lighter colours but thought you wouldn't be able to see my naked nail pop as much as you would with a brighter colour. Plus hot pink just screams summer at me :P
For these nails I used two coats of OPI Pink Flamenco, although I could have gotten away with one. This is my favourite hot pink polish, it applies like butter and it looks gorgeous! I then used a nail art brush and pure acetone to remove some of the polish to create the naked hearts on my nails, surprisingly this took quite a bit of time. Probably because I'm a perfectionist and wanted my hearts to be perfect :P
 I really love how this looks on my nails. It's quite a subtle effect but everyone who saw these kept asking me how I did it :P I think it'd be fun to use this method for other shapes or patterns and obviously in different colours. I can't wait to play around with this a bit more :)

Have you ever done nail art with sections of naked nails? Let me know in the comments :)
Thanks for reading :)
