Paint your entire nail in Tough Love. Dip a brush in your bottle of Spark Plug and create short vertical hatch marks along the bottom of the nail bed, creating a "V" shape. You want them all to vary in length, with the shortest ones in the center.

Create more vertical hatch marks near the top of the nail in a large diamond pattern. Clean off the brush with nail polish remover. Using Candyland, make similar hatch marks just above the original ones.

Paint your entire nail with Candyland. On the bottom of your nail, create two white dots of polish, then apply two red dots opposite of them, so they make a cluster shape.

While the dots are still wet, use a toothpick to swirl them around until you create a two-toned blossom. Use Bad Romance to paint a tapered "leaf" on the largest rose, then dip another toothpick in White Wedding and create a thin line in the center of the black leaf.

There's something a bit old-fashioned about these blooms, but the addition of the black leaves give them some modern edge.

Dip your nail-art brush in nail polish remover, then drag it through the center of your still-wet heart to create a dripping effect. You may have to pass through the heart a few times to get the desired look. Then, use the same techniques to create two smaller (dripping) hearts on each side of the nail.

There's nothing twee about these hearts!
