If you want to add a little je ne sais quoi to your nails this Valentine’s Day without going bright pink and super cheesy, then look no further than this elegant and subtle design created by Savoir Flair and SoH. It takes just four simple steps, so you’ll have fabulously flirty fingers in a flash.
What you’ll need:
Deep red nail polish (or a main color of your choice)
White nail polish
Clear base and top coat (optional)
Apply a clear base coat and then your nail polish color. Savoir Flair opted for a classic, deep red, but any red, violet, maroon, or a purply-dark blue would work well for this theme. Allow to dry fully before moving to the next step.
Shake your white nail paint and get your calligraphy brush ready to dip inside, then draw your hearts in your preferred shape and size. Don’t worry if they are not perfect (that’s the look you want) and try to make the hearts different sizes to make it look more fun.
Use your calligraphy pen to roughly trace around your hearts to add some depth and dimension and to give them a less perfect and quirkier feel.
Finish with a topcoat and seal the edges. Allow the nails to dry fully to avoid ruining the design.
