1. Apply hot pink sparkle gel and gently drag the color down the nail toward the cuticle. Cure.


2. Take a hologram silver gel, and starting at the pink part, fade the silver toward the cuticle while the gel is still wet. Apply hologram chunky glitters over the silver. Cure.


3. Apply clear gel over the entire nail. Cure. Finish file and buff the nail.


4. With a water-based paint, paint hearts using three different colors.


5. Outline the hearts in black and add stitches. Apply gel top gloss and cure.
