Nail Polish Shelf Life
Although nail polish can last for at least 2 years, you need to check its texture before tossing it out. If the polish has turned clumpy and won't combine even after a good shake, it's time to bid the color adieu.

Step-by-step Tutorial

To create this lovely nail art, you will require a few toothpicks, a clear polish, red, white, and black nail color (or your favorite shade), Q-tips, nail polish remover, and a few cotton balls. Firstly, remove the old nail paint and wash your hands properly. Clip, file, and buff your nails to the height you want before you proceed to the following steps.

Heart Nail Art Tutorial

Apply a coat of clear nail paint and let it dry before beginning the nail art.

Apply 1 - 2 coats of black nail polish (or any other nail color you want).

Dip a toothpick in either red or white nail color to draw a V shape.

Pick more color with the toothpick and fill the color on top of the V to resemble the shape of a heart.

Do this on all the nails and let the paint dry completely.

Take a clean toothpick and pick white (or red) nail color. Now, make a smaller v shape at the bottom of the hearts.

Do this on all the nails and let the paint dry one more time.

Once completely dry, apply a coat of clear nail polish to prevent the nail art from chipping off too early.
