Continue reading for step-by-step directions.
Step 1: Shape and prep the nail accordingly by filing to the desired shape and lightly buffing out any ridges or uneven grooves. Wipe away any dust with a cotton pad and a spritz of alcohol
Step 2: Polish all the nails with your base coat.
Step 3: Follow up with your pale pink polish on all the nails except your ring fingers of both hands, polish those white. Two coats of each color.
Step 4: Take a plastic zip top baggie and place small amounts of your different shades of pink and purple on it.
Using your dotting tools in five different sizes, dip one at time in the polish and start to shape a heart on both ring fingers. Keep repeating this step changing the sizes of your dotting tools and polish colors until you have completed your heart shape.
Step 5: Apply top coat to all nails and admire your beautiful hearts!
