STEP 1

First of all it is important to make sure your nails are clean and ready to be painted before we start, so we need to do a little bit of preparation. If you have nail varnish on already, you will need to take it off with some nail varnish remover. After this is done, I usually wash my hands just to just to ensure my nails are completely clean.

Then it’s time to tidy your nails up a little and shape them to how you want them with your file. If you want make your nails appear longer you can push back your cuticles. If you place your hand in some warm water for a few minutes, it will help soften your skin making it easier for you to do this.

Once you are ready, you should apply a base coat to your nail as this will protect your nails from being stained but also will make applying your nail varnish much smoother. We used the Vitamin Base Coat (1) to do this.

STEP 2

Once your base coat is dry (this shouldn’t take too long), we can start moving on to the more exciting parts – deciding what colour you want your nails to be! For this look, we decided to have the ring finger as the main focus so we painted that nail with the nail varnish in the colour White Out (3) and the rest of the nails with the gorgeous red (2) nail varnish. We applied 2 coats of the nail varnish as this makes sure the nails are covered well.

We recommend you apply two thin coats rather than one thick one as the thicker the coat, the longer it will take to dry.

STEP 3

Once the white nail varnish is dry, the real fun begins – time to start creating the main focus of this look – the golden heart! First of all, we have to plan where we want it to be – to do this, we used the heart shaped stencil (6) and placed it gently over the nail.

It is important you make sure your nail varnish is dry before you place it over your nail as this could take your nail varnish off!

STEP 4

Once you are happy with the placement of the stencil, it’s time to paint on the heart! We decided to use this gorgeous gold (4) nail varnish for this nail look.

When you are painting on the nail varnish, don’t worry if you get some on the stencil – it protects that part of your nail!

Now it’s time to gently take the stencil off!

STEP 6

This look is gorgeous with just the big golden heart so you could finish it there if you wanted to, but we decided to add a little bit extra – some small golden hearts on the other nails!

An easy way to paint on some small hearts is paint on 3 dots in a triangle shape as you can see in the photo above. We did this using the dotting pen (7) with the nail varnish in the colour Molten Gold (4).

STEP 7

Once you have painted on the 3 dots, we need to join them together to make the small hearts! To do this, we joined the top 2 dots to the bottom one using the dotting pen (7) with the nail varnish in the colour Molten Gold (4) and then shaped them a little to create the cute little hearts.

Apply a top coat (5) to finish it off and that’s it! A gorgeous look for your nails this Valentine’s Day! It’s also perfect for everyday wear, parties and any special occasion!

      It’s gorgeous, isn’t it! I actually got it a few days after Christmas from Next and it was on sale for like £1.50! I saw it and had to grab it haha. They might still sell it and I got lucky with that one – they usually do quite a lot of different nail varnish colours in that section with the make-up and stuff! I’ll have a look out if I go there soon for you 🙂

      Thank you so much! 🙂 Just need to find the right motivation to help you stop – I remember wanting long nails when I was younger which definitely helped me!

    These look beautiful! I’m not allowed to wear nail varnish to work (booo!) and I’m so impatient when it comes to waiting for my nails to dry! I wish I could create something that looks this nice!

      Oh no – I wasn’t able to in my last job, it was sooo bad. If we had our nails painted we had to wear gloves which made it so difficult to do things! Luckily I can now with my new job so I love being able to do them again! Haha, yeah it can be a bit annoying at times waiting for the nail varnish to dry but it’s all worth it in the end when you have a pretty nail look 😀

    I love this one! Super cute for valentine’s. And I know I could actually achieve this one too which is a bonus. Double Decker Red used to be my go-to everyday shade! I haven’t seen that bottle in a while.
