Celebrate Valentine’s Day with some “Heart Nail Art” courtesy of celebrity nail maven Jin Soon Choi, who has worked with everyone from Lady Gaga to Kerry Washington to Taylor Swift and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Founder of the JINsoon Nail Lacquer line and Jin Soon Hand & Foot Spas, Jin has created this fun nail art for V-Day! Get the look with these step-by-step instructions.
Step 1: File and shape your nails in a natural square or roundish shape.
Step 2: Next, apply a base coat.
Step 3: Apply a pink shade on the entire nail bed (here, Jin Soon gives a sneak peek of Dolly Pink from her SS14 collection).
Step 4: Apply JINsoon Coral Peony on one side of the nail, covering about 3/4’s 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 5: 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 6: Finish with a high-shine top coat.
