Valentine's Nails using my $0.67 Nail Polish

Here is my simple nail art design I have on my nails at the moment; ready for valentine's day! :)

I got the Wet n Wild nail color at Target's clearance sale for 67 cents! O_o
(Wild Shine) in "Burgundy Frost"
I wanted to have a more subtle look on my nails so I erased it all off and painted my tips instead:

1. I started off by applying my base coat.

I used "Base Coat Top Coat PRO" by Rimmel (I love how it is able to be used as both).

So fancy. I like the little crown design on the polish cap.
Nice wide brush helps me coat my whole nail in one swipe!
2. I prepared some nail guide stickers:
I used some masking tape to help me with painting my nail tips.

Makes my life easier.

 3. Slap some nail polish of your choice (in my case, its red) on there:

4. Rip off your DIY nail sticker guide off slowly and carefully while it is still wet.
One done, 9 more to go!

5. Add heart design:
Start by adding two dots.
Then drag it down one dot at a time.
And you have a heart! :)
Seal with Top Coat (I used the same Rimmel one again) and you're done! :)
Hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day!!! :)

Also, if you haven't yet, you can still enter for a chance to win a $25 Apothica Giftcard! :)
Giveaway ends on Feb. 14th.
