This V-Day Manicure Will Set Your Heart Aflutter
Valentine's Day nail art can get cheesy really fast, but leave it to nail guru Jin Soon Choi to make a heart-shaped manicure look incredibly chic. I love the not-so-literal take on a simple heart design, especially when it involves wearing three gorgeous shades at the same time. And if you're not into pinks and reds, switch the color palette to suit your vibe.
Jin Soon gives me a step-by-step tutorial below. You won't believe how easy it is.

Step 1: Apply a base coat like JINsoon Power Coat.
Step 2: Apply a pink shade on the entire nail bed." Jin used a shade called Dolly Pink.
Step 3: Apply JINsoon Coral Peony on one side of the nail, covering about 3/4's of the nail bed and ending in a subtle curve to create half of the heart shape. Then repeat on the other side, taking special care to intersect the two sides at the center of the nail.
Step 4: Apply JINsoon Coquette on one side of the nail covering about half of the nail bed and ending in the same subtle curve as you did when applying the Coral Peony. Repeat on the other side, again taking special care to intersect the two sides at the center of the nail.
Step 5: Finish with a high-shine top coat like JINsoon Top Gloss.
