Well, it's valentines day. And I'm sick at home with a cold.
So I thought I would paint a heart on my nail.
My nails are Shellac-ed with Romanitque by CND.
*pardon my dry hands. It's winter.
Grab a pink polish, like Flirt (how appropriate) by Essie, and a few toothpicks.
Dip a toothpick in the polish and begin outlining the heart. "Pull" the polish toward the center of the heart by dragging your toothpick inward. Don't worry if it's uneven--you can add a drop of fresh polish right on top of the center to smooth it out at the end.
(I'm showing this on a tissue but you do this on your actual nail)
*less is more here. You can always add more color, but its hard to work with big globs of color.
Use a clean toothpick to push in any color that seeps out. Less is more!
Once the heart is absolutely completely dry, coat with a layer of top coat.
Happy Valentines Day!
