As I was reading through the steps for this Valentine’s Day nail art, I saw that it said to use white and add “shine.” It took me a second to realize that the white exclamation point wasn’t actually shine but polish! I love the black with the pink and reds, it makes it a little different. So fun! You can find this tutorial here.
