Step One

File and shape your nails in a natural square or roundish shape.

Apply a base coat like JINsoon Power Coat.

Step Two

Apply a cotton candy pink shade on the entire nail bed (Jin Soon picked Dolly Pink from her SS14 collection).

Step Three

Apply a deep coral (here is JINsoon Coral Peony) on one side of the nail, covering about three quarters of the nail bed and ending in a subtle curve to create half of the heart shape. Then repeat on the other side, making sure to intersect the two sides at the center of the nail.

Step Four

Apply a dark red (here is 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 dark coral polish. Repeat on the other side, connecting them in the center to make a heart shape.

Step Five

Finish with a high-shine top coat (here, Jin Soon used JINsoon Top Gloss).

The Finished Product!

Seriously, how cute is this nail art?
