2. Draw the red hearts

With a thin brush, use red gel polish to draw small hearts on your nails.

I like to draw them in different directions so they almost look like falling petals. Draw them as big or as small and as many or as little as you like.

3. Draw a white outline around the hearts

With white gel polish, draw a line around each of the hearts to create an outline. This will help make the hearts pop out against the base coat.

4. Add red nail crystals

Add small, red nail crystals around the hearts to add a bit of fun texture to your nails. You could use nail glue to attach them or just nail polish.
