So, this really isn't rocket science, but the husband is out of town and I have to find ways of occupying myself. Hence, V-day nail tutorial.
Before we do anything - USE THE POTTY. Nothing worse than perfect pretty nails ruined by an ill-timed potty break.
So I started with a base color by Essie: Russian Roulette (My fave red)
2 coats and a clear top layer
For the heart I used Pale Cashmere by Revlon
Now, I tried this with a Q-tip first and found that a match worked much better. A toothpick wouldn't really work for this technique. Just dip the match in your heart color. Don't get too much or it will be too thick of a dot and run.
Make three dots on your nail for both humps and the bottom
This was my first attempt and I think my dots were too far apart. I ended up doing it on my thumb.
Make all three dots petty close together and then use the excess nail polish from your dots to connect them! You may need a little extra to fill it all in.
Now just avoid all dish washing until Feb. 14th and don't forget to check out your cute little heart nail whenever you're holding a cup o' joe (that's when it's the cutest).
