HEART NAIL ART DIY | westover manor

It’s the home stretch to Valentine’s Day, so I figured we should wrap it up with a little nail art.
I am way into nail polish at the moment… mostly because it’s the only thing keeping me from obsessively biting my nails, like usual. I’ve gone almost a full month without taking my nails down to the numbs, so I am very pleased to be able to show them off to you today!

tools //
Nail File
Paint brush with a pointy tip
Red & White nail polish
Base coat
Top coat

how to //
Begin by sculpting your nails with the nail file.
Paint on your base coat, followed by one to two coats of red nail polish. Ensure that the red is very dry so it won’t accidentally get in your white nail polish.
Using the paint brush make a V shape with the white nail polish.
Go over the V a few times to fill it in, or carefully wiggle the paint brush a bit to give each half of the V a thicker, more heart shaped look.
Allow the heart to dry and paint on your top coat.


Happy Valentines Day!
