by Eilidh Currie

Create sweet pink hearts on your nails that everyone will love this Valentine's Day!

Supplies

  • Dark Pink Nail Polish
  • Light Pink Nail Polish
  • White Nail Polish
  • Clear coat or Matte Coat
  • Pen, Pencil or Toothpicks
  • Nail file
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Start by filing your nails to a round shape. This is optional, I just like the design better on round nails!

    Step 2

    ...like so!

    Step 3

    Apply your light pink polish to all nails. I used Essie--Ballet Slippers. My polish is very thin so I used 3 coats--you can see my tips but that's alright as the design covers them!

    Step 4

    Using your dark pink polish, paint two bumps like the top of a heart on the tips of your nails. This is Sally Hansen--Love Rocks.

    Step 5

    Using a pen/pencil/toothpick/anything with a small dotted point, create small dots of white polish around the tops of your hearts. Let your nails dry completely.

    Step 6

    Once your nails have dried completely, it's time to add your topcoat! I love this look matte so I used Essie's Matte About You. Of course the matte look is optional & you can use a regular clear coat!

    Step 7

    This is the final product! Have fun and have a Happy Valentine's Day!
