NOTW: Cherries and hearts for my Valentine... Valentine's Day Tutorial #1

Hello cupcakes :) Here's my first nail tutorial for Valentine's Day! I was inspired to do this by LOVE4NAILS on YouTube. Let's get started :)

1. Start by applying a clear base coat on all the nails and proceed with a white polish to create a French manicure.

2a. Now let's start working on the cherries... I decided to do the cherries on both the ring fingers and thumbs.  Grab a large dotting tool and dip it in some red polish.  Place two large dots on the desired nails in a diagonal fashion as shown in the picture. Leave to dry.

b. When dry, take a black nail polish and do a small elliptical shape at the top of the cherries and with a white nail polish, do little shapes on the sides of the fruit to give them a 3D appearance.

c. To complete the design, draw two thin stems with a green polish.


3. For the other nails, do a grid shape on the tip with a black striper polish and let dry.

4. For the little heart shapes, you need a small dotting tool and some red nail polish. They are very easy to do, just place two dots a little apart from each other in a horizontal line and drag them downwards to achieve the heart shape! I placed the hearts in alternate boxes but it's really up to you :)

5. When finished, just top coat and you're done!
