Get a romantic & easy Valentine's Day manicure
With Valentine's Day only a few days away I'm already feeling the pressure to find the perfect outfit. But let's face it, your look not complete without a perfectly primped manicure. Your fingertips will be visible throughout the night, so why not dress them up with a design fit for the occasion? Fresh out of ideas? Don't stress, that's what I'm here for! I reached out to CoverGirl manicurist, Mar y Soul Inzerillo to create a custom nail design exclusively for you to wear on your special V-day plans. Check out her tips below to recreate this look yourself at home!

Step 1 Choose your polishes: Mar y Soul used 4 shades from the 45 high gloss colors of CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brillant Nail Gloss Collection. But feel free to use similar shades.
Step 2 Prep nails: File and buff nails into your desired nail shape. I like to use a dual-sized, flexible nail file, like Tweezerman Filemate ($5). The great thing about this design is that it looks great on all shapes, square, round, almond and even pointy.
Step 3 Paint: Mar y Soul started off by applying two coats of Lasting Love #180 ($5) a deep red shade.
Step 4 Layer: She then used the polish in Timeless Rubies #315 ($5) and applied one coat to her middle finger. Wait three minutes to dry.
Step 5 Design: Afterwards, Mar y Soul drew a heart on her middle finger using the Everbloom #160 ($5) shade. If you have shaky hands like me try dipping a nail art brush into the bottle. This will help you keep your design neat and precise. Try ASP Nail Art Brush Set ($15).
Step 6 Finish: Once it dried, Mar y Soul drew a small line in the heart using the Constant Candy #135 ($5) shade to help create depth in the heart. No top coat needed.
And viola! A V-day manicure made to steal hearts!
