Instructions
1. Paint your nails with a milky-white base shade.
2. Apply a clear topcoat, then allow to dry using a gel lamp.
3. Take a pale pink gel shade, and apply to the right side of your middle fingernail in a teardrop shape.
4. Allow this accent shade to dry under the gel lamp.
5. Apply clear top coat over the entire nail.
6. Using a wax pencil, apply pink rhinestones around the border of the teardrop shape while your topcoat is still wet. Press firmly into place using tweezers.
7. Dry using the gel lamp.
8. Repeat the same design in a mirror image on your index finger, so the two nails come together to form a heart shape.
