Do it Yourself:

Step 1:
Apply a base coat to protect your natural nails from stains.

Step 2:
Next apply 2 coats of a bright red polish to your nails, excluding your ring fingers. Paint those two fingers a light pink.

Step 3:
Once dry, it’s time to add the hearts. Using a bobby pin dipped in the pink polish, paint three small hearts down the left side of each red nail. To create a heart, join two small dots together in a V shape. They don’t have to be perfect, just try not to make them too big.

Step 4:
Do the same on your pink ring fingers but this time paint red hearts down the right side of the nail.

Step 5:
Allow to dry for at least 30 minutes before finishing with a top coat to avoid smudging. Clean up any mistakes around your nails with a cotton bud and polish remover.

And there you have it, your nails are just as ready for that hot date as you are ;)
