    Samantha: Looking for a special but easy nail-art technique that's perfect for a romantic evening out, try this little sweet heart. Simply create a heart sheet template, you can paint through for an added touch that doesn't take much time.

    To start, gather your materials. You will need red-angled polish and a low-duct tape like washi tape or blue painters tape. After applying your base coat to protect your nails apply the red polish to all your nails. You will probably need two coats to get a really solid color.

    Create the heart template by folding a piece of low-duct tape in half and cutting half a heart-shape out of the folded edge, just like you probably did in elementary school in making folded paper dolls or snowflakes.

    Pull the tape open to check your heart-shape, make sure it will fit on your ring-finger nail. If it's not just right, cut another. Tape the heart template to your ring-finger and press down firmly so that edges are sealed in place.

    Add the gold polish and thin-even layers to build up the color. Wait a few minutes and then peel off the tape. Let the heart dry and then apply a create top coat to seal and protect the design.

    And there you have it, a quick and easy way to get a romantic nail-art design, perfect for any special occasion. Enjoy it!
