Michelle Saunders, a manicurist to the stars in Los Angeles, has come up with a French Valentine manicure for Essie. Follow these steps to achieve it:

1 Apply a coat of First Base base coat, allowing each nail to dry.

2 Layer two coats of Ballet Slippers on all 10 nails.

3 Apply a coat of Fiesta to the top half of the nail, closest to the tip, in the shape of 2 circles (like the top of a heart).

4 Be sure to wait two minutes for it to dry horoughly.

5 With Lollipop, follow the same lines as Fiesta, leaving enough pink peeking through so it looks like double hearts.

6 Finish with a coat of Good To Go top coat. - The Star
