Valentine's Day nail art idea from @Nails_by_Miaaa

Thanks to @nails_by_miaaa on TikTok, it’s easy to follow the steps for adorable glazed donut nails decorated with little red hearts. Mia provides a step-by-step tutorial that starts off with medium round clear press on nails and applying two coats of milky white polish (she used Gelcare in the shade Cloud).

She then applied a gel top coat (Kiara Sky) so that the chrome, which is needed to create the glazed look, will stick. To complete the glazed look, Mia used the pearl powder from Born Pretty. She then applied another top coat, hand-painted some tiny red hearts, and sealed the design with another coat of gel top coat. Perfecto!

Chrome heart nails by @vivianmariew

To complete this look, the content creator says she started by applying a base coat, her gel color, and then a non-wipe top coat. She then applied her chrome color, used a thicker top coat to create the heart designs and then cured the nails. She proceeded to wipe off the excess chrome and suggested viewers apply another top coat layer if preferred.
