How to paint a gingerbread lovers nail design

Is there anything cuter than watching two lovers standing side by side? Well, yes, if they’re made entirely of a favorite cookie recipe: gingerbread. This sweetheart-inspired nail design tutorial is quick and easy to recreate. All you’ll need to do is round up a few nail tools and perhaps a lit candle to support the romantic vibes.
You may choose to display one gingerbread lover on each nail, or abandon uniformity by alternating the designs. If your nail bed is on the roomier side, you can even feature both lovers on a single nail. The possibilities to get creative with this project are endless.
