Learn how to create this trendy Valentine’s Day nail design created by Sarah Peterson, a nail tech at Salon Legacy in Rolla, Mo. She manipulates polish marbling and a cheetah print design to resemble hearts. The subtlety of Peterson’s work makes this manicure an alternative holiday offering as well as a one that could be worn year-round or for countless other special occasions.

1. Marbleize pink and white polish forming a loose heart shape at the free edge. (It’s OK if each nail is slightly different.)

2. Add cheetah print diagonally toward the cuticle. Some spots should resemble small hearts. 

3. Outline the marbleized pattern with black polish and then apply top coat.
