Since my nails were already filed into points for my last heart manicure, might as well do another variation of it! After all, it’s not Valentine’s Day yet…
♪♫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!
“WHOOOOOO’S your Valentine?”
