Broken Heart

Hey! In this tutorial I will describe how to create broken heart nail design!

Step-by-step tutorial

1) Start with nails prep
2) I applied a white gel polish and cured
3) I topcoated the nails, cured and removed the tacky layer
4) Then I buffed the nail with not rough nail buffer (I used 240 grit). (It is easier to draw on the rough surface, so I did 3-4 steps) Cleaned the nail with a cleanser
5) I sketched my hearts in pencil
