Candy Heart Manicures

These DIY Valentines Day Nails Are Adorably Expressive

— February 12, 2014 — Lifestyle
This COVERGIRL tutorial for romantic Valentine's Day nails looks surprisingly easy to recreate, even though it's got some itty bitty details that will melt your heart. The pretty manicure takes inspiration from the retro conversation hearts with phrases like "say yes" and "puppy love."

The base for the nail art is quite simple and it just takes a little patience, a small brush and a steady hand to paint on those tiny heart shapes on each nail. The real magic comes with the application of the conversation heart decals, which adds the quintessential Valentine's Day messages to complete the look. Considering how small the text is, applying decals is really the only option if you want the text to be legible.

The COVERGIRL tutorial is fully illustrated step-by-step with GIFs on the MTV Style blog.
