One of my most favorite days is Valentine’s Day. The day dedicated to the people we love, whether it’s a boyfriend, girlfriend, friends, or even family, Valentines Day is a signature of love and appreciation. I was thinking about what to wear for Valentines Day and then I suddenly realized I had to do my nails! Now my parents aren’t going to give me a hundred bucks just so I can get my nails done for a holiday that I don’t even get off for, so i decided to try to find a design that looks simple and would be perfect for this occasion.
I came across this picture on NailArtGallery and instantly fell in love. It looks amazing but also hard, especially since the website doesn’t provide step to step directions. I decided to try for myself and decided if I could do it (being barely able to do a french manicure) then most of the female population would be able to as well. After succeeding in this experiment I decided to write a 5 step procedure on how to paint them. I would recommend doing each step for all the nails and then moving on to the next step. This way your nail also get to dry. I hope you enjoy it and good luck!
4 – Nail polish colors:
- light pink
- dark pink
- glittery pink or just glitter polish
10- any color heart stickers/gems
- Start off with the light pink nail polish and paint your nails one coat. Make sure it’s a nice even layer.
- Take the dark pink nail polish and paint ¼ tip of your nail. (Look at the picture if you’re confused). Make sure this is also one coat and an even layer.
- Take the glitter polish and paint ONLY on top of the dark pink nail polish. So the dark nail polish should be covered with glitter polish.
- Apply the overcoat on top of your whole nail.
- Finish off with the heart nail sticker/ gem on the light pink nail polish. It doesn’t matter where you put it but if you want you can see the picture and follow it for location.
Now wait for it to dry and you’re done!the original article from highschoogle.com, written by Sana Fasihuddin
