Manicurist Jin Soon Choi shows us how to recreate this adorable Valentine's Day nail art look at home—it just takes five simple steps!
Step 1
File and shape your nails in a natural square or roundish shape. Then apply a base coat like JINsoon Power Coat. It not only strengthens nails with keratin, but helps your polish last longer.
Step 2
Apply a pink shade on the entire nail bed. Here, Jin Soon gives a sneak peek of Dolly Pink from her Spring 2014 collection. For now, try it with any light pink color, like JINsoon Tea Rose ($18, jinsoon.com).
Step 3
Apply JINsoon Coral Peony on one side of the nail, covering about three-quarters 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—it dries super fast!
