Heart Manicure

♪♫Lookin’ back on the things I’ve done,
I was trying to be someone,
I played my part and kept you in the dark,
Now let me show you the shape of my heart♥…♫♪

Did I just reveal my age by quoting a Backstreet Boys song?

Well this manicure literally changed the shape of my heart…uh, nail.

I usually keep my nails square….

So, I got to filing, which was not very efficient since my nails are very thick, kind of like sweeping the floor with a toothbrush.   I ended up clipping the sides and then just smoothing the edges with the file.  You want to file them into a rounded point.

I don’t know, I kinda sorta like it in a weird way…

Paint the base coat, and whatever light pink colour you have for French manicure.  Then I used China Glaze “Hey Sailor” to roughly paint the edge.

Then you make a “V” in the middle and then round it out into the 2 humps at the top of the heart.

Make sure you paint the nail edges.  Add a top coat and done!
