- This same tutorial can be used on toes too.
Step 1 Start with clean and clear nails.
Make sure all nail polish is removed from the nail. Also, make sure the nail is free of dirt. Usually a manicure is given before nail art is done. If you do not know how to give a manicure, go to the article titled "How To Give Yourself a Manicure". This article is also posted on the cork board.
Step 2 Paint the base coat.
Start with an pink coat of nail polish. Make sure to apply the polish smoothly and evenly.
Step 3 Add details.
Using a nail art brush, nail art pen, toothpick, or whatever your comfortable with, add a white heart in the upper left corner of your nail.
Step 4 Add details.
Paint an angled red heart connected to the white one.
Step 5 Add dots.
Paint random light pink dots on your nails.
Step 6 Add a clear top coat.
A top coat will complete your nail design by making your nails shiny and preventing them from chipping. When you are finished, your nail should look like this.
- When painting with your non-dominant hand, use stencils. See my article "How to Make Nail Art Stencils" for instructions.
