1. Use a sponge to create a gradient with two to four desired colors.


2. Apply any desired glitter top coat.


3. User a fine brush to draw the heart design, paying special attention to the inside of the shape; this will be the exposed part.


4. Use the same color to fill in the negative space surrounding the shapes. Apply a clear top coat.
