Today will be a quick post on how to create hearts. You can do this with regular nail polish or gel nail polish. In the photos below I was using regular polish.
I used a dotting tool. I got a package of them on amazon for very cheap but they shipped from over seas so they took some time to get to me. You can use a tack, safety pin, or a toothpick as well.
**Update** One of my readers (thanks Mom!) pointed out that using the foil helps while doing this. Don't try dipping the dotting tool directly into the bottle of polish. It is hard to see how much you are getting on the tool. Use a piece of foil or plastic wrap. This also helps when using a thin brush tool as well!
