How-to: Heart Nail Art

There are a few different ways to incorporate hearts into your gel nail art. Here are two easy ways you can try at home.

You will need:

How to do heart nail art option 1

  1. Paint and cure your base coat and first two layers of nail polish as usual with your chosen base colour.

  2. To create the heart, use the marbling and dotting tool to place two small drops of polish on the nail next to each other (make sure they are just touching if possible).

  3. Now use the marbling and dotting tool to drag the polish from the drops down and in slightly so they meet at the bottom - forming the bottom V of your heart.

  4. Cure the polish and complete the gel polish process with top coat and cure as normal. 

How to create hearts with gel nail polish option 2

  1. Paint and cure your base coat and first two layers of nail polish as usual with your chosen base colour.

  2. Using tape (the less sticky the better - some masking tapes work well) or thin paper, fold in half and cut half a small heart shape out of the folded tape or paper to create a heart-shaped stencil. Open the tape up and place on your nail. Paint into the heart stencil with your chosen heart polish colour.

  3. Remove the tape, cure the heart and apply top coat - completing the process as normal.
