Well, no matter what type of nail art you are doing, there are a few things that you should not skip! Cleaning your nails is essential since dirt and dust often accumulate around the edges along with stray nail paint. Use a cotton earbud to accomplish the task.
Then you can push back the cuticles to create more space on the surface of the nails. Buffing is often done to create more anchorage for the base coat and the chemical polishes. As a result of buffing your nails, the nail art will become long-lasting.
Allow the base coat to dry off before you apply the red paint. With pointed nails, this heart design comes out well. Paint the tip of your nails with red to create a small heart fashion. Two inverted leaves with a base drawn towards the center allow you to get gorgeous mini hearts.
You need to make semi-circles at the top at a certain angle. Make sure that the half circles manage to overlap each other however only at the tips of the nails. Add a top coat when your pattern is done and wait for it to dry! Your simple heart nails are ready.
There are several ways to design a heart on the surface of the nails. Here is another style that you can emulate with Valentine's knocking at the door. Apply the layer of base coat and wait for it to dry up. When the shade is too light, you might need two layers to do away with the transparency. Now you will need a small blotch of ed nail paint on the paper!
With this you are about to design the heart, so wait and read up on what comes next. Give the blotch about one minute to thicken up a bit and then you can take a toothpick, pick some paint, and make two dots on the nails adjacent to one another. Pull the dots downward at an angle of 45° so that they meet at a common point below.
So this is how you can make a tiny heart on your nail. If you want the design to be prominent then you should keep the base white. Apply the base coat once the paint dries off and you are done.
Here is another method that you can use to paint hearts on your nails. For this as well, begin with the application of the base coat and then allow it to dry off. Paste tape on the surface of your nails at an angle such that it works a “V” shape at the tip.
Paste another one at an angle with the corner into the nail bed coming from the curricular region. Once done, the remaining left-out portion will resemble an upside-down heart. Well, that is it! Paint with your favorite shade! Allow it to dry off and then pull off the tapes! Finish off with a base coat and your Valentine's Day nails are ready to flaunt on your date. Happy Valentine's!
