DIY Heart Manicure | www.vitaminihandmade.com

I love painting my nails myself, so I'm always looking for easy ways to make my home manicures a little more special. What's more special than hearts? Here's a super easy way to customize a plain manicure for Valentine's Day, or any other day when you want to some cute little hearts on your nails.
Here's what you'll need:

  • Light colored base coat of nail polish. I used Sally Hansen Shell We Dance
  • Contrasting accent color. I used this deep purple/almost black from Crabtree and Evelyn called Eggplant
  • Clear top coat
  • Washi tape
  • Wax paper
  • Heart hole punch

Start with 2 coats of the base color and let dry.

Lay some strips of washi tape onto a small piece of wax paper. Punch out one or two hearts per piece of tape. Here's a little trick if your punch is getting stuck on the paper: double a piece of scrap paper and lay it under the tape/wax paper while you punch to get cleaner edges.

Pull the tape up from the wax paper and center the heart over the nail. Make sure the edges of the heart are stuck down. Paint over the heart area with the accent polish and then carefully pull up the tape while it's still wet.

Continue on the other nails. Finish off with a coat or two of clear top coat once the hearts have dried.
