WHAT YOU'LL NEED

  1. 1 light green nail polish   

  2. Acrylic nail paint in white and dark green

  3. 1 small paint brush

Step 1

PAINT NAILS LIGHT GREEN

Grab your light green nail polish and paint two coats on all fingers (we opted for OPI Nail Polish in Gargantuan Green Grape).

Step 2

CREATE A CIRCLE OF HEARTS

Dip your small paint brush into the dark green acrylic paint. Use the tiny tip to create four mini hearts in a circle shape (think, petals on a flower), leaving a dot of space in the middle. Be sure the hearts do not overlap each other.  

Step 3

ADD A STEM AND DEFINE THE LEAVES

Next, draw a small curved line down between two of the hearts. This will be your stem. For more detail on the leaves, use the white acrylic paint to add small dashes in the cupid's bow section of each heart. Add a shiny top coat to give your design a gleaming finish.
