When I saw that Windestine had released a collection inspired by Little Women, I immediately headed over to her Etsy shop and purchased all of them. I have a serious weakness for nail polish inspired by anything historical or literary. This is Heartbeat, which I knew would be one of my favorites as soon as I saw the bottle.
Heartbeat is a dark purple jelly with pink and copper microglitter (or very coarse shimmer). It’s beautiful and perfect and the formula is great. It is a bit sheer, so I layered two coats over OPI Vant to Bite My Neck?, which matches the base color perfectly. On my index and pinky nails, I used Bundle Monster plate 317 to stamp the heart pattern starting with Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Cinna-Snap (which you can barely see), and then Essie Penny Talk.
Heartbeat is definitely a classic Windestine color. I absolutely love when she uses small glitters, and her jelly/glitter color combos are always flawless. Stay tuned for the other four polishes in this collection!
