This V-Day Manicure Sets Our Hearts Aflutter
Valentine's Day nail art could get cheesy really fast, but leave it to nail guru Jin Soon Choi to make a lovey-dovey manicure look incredibly chic. This how-to popped up in our inbox and was way too cute not to share. We love the not-so-literal take on a simple heart design, especially when it gives us the opportunity to rock three of our favorite nail polish hues at the same time. Even if you're not into pinks and reds, the color possibilities are endless.
Jin Soon gives us a step-by-step tutorial below. You won't believe how easy it is.

Step 1: "Apply a base coat like JINsoon Power Coat."
Step 2: "Apply a pink shade on the entire nail bed." Jin used a shade from her spring/summer 2014 collection called Dolly Pink.
Step 3: 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 4: "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 5: "Finish with a high-shine top coat like JINsoon Top Gloss."
