earlier this week, i had painted my nails black for a video shoot (for an assignment). but i felt sayang to remove it so soon. so i decided to add a little design to it and wear the black for a little longer! i used five different shades from white to pink on each heart, but i only painted hearts on my left hand nails (the right hand nails are just plain black now but i plan to add a music note design).
as i do not have any fine paint brushes, i used the tip of the polish brush to paint the hearts on. first, drop a blob of polish as the center of the heart. second, flatten the brush and drag the brush tip from above the center down diagonally. as you pull the brush past the center blob, lift quickly to leave a sharp point as the heart bottom "V" shape. finally, repeat the second step for the other half of the heart.
alternatively, you can try to drop a larger blob in the first step, and then use the brush tip to drag the blob outwards in a "V" shape in three directions to create the heart.
