Valentine's Nails

I love valentine's day. My family has a tea party every year, and making valentine's for my friends is really fun. My friend Katie and I did our nails and we both did tutorials. Be sure to check out her design! Here is a fun design to do on your nails for Valentine's Day.

You will need:
~ Nail polish {of course}
~ Pins and toothpicks

Here are the four colors you will need: top coat, red, white, and gold.

First, paint your nails gold. I do one coat, then come back and do a second. Let it dry.

Now put a small amount of red nail polish on a piece of scrap paper or a card. Dip the pin head into the polish, and create to dots that barley touch on your fourth finger. Take a toothpick and drag it through the drops and bring them to a point. You now have a heart!

On your thumb, repeat this process on the upper outside corner. this one should be larger than the one on the forth finger. Now add a small amount of white nail polish to the card on a different spot, and repeat the process right next to the big heart on your thumb. It will be much smaller. Make sure that when you use the pin head again, it is clean, and that you use the other end of the toothpick, unless you want a swirled red and white heart.

You now have a classy, fun manicure for Valentine's Day. What do you think?
