Hi! Here you will find how to paint hearts on nails!

Step-by-step tutorial

1) First step is nails prep for gel polish application
2) I covered my nails with a white gel polish and cured
3) I applied a top coat, cured and removed the sticky 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 design in pencil
