Get the look:
Step 1: Apply a base coat to the entire nail.
Step 2: Apply painter's tape in the shape of the triangle at the base to block off the area reserved for negative space.
Step 3: Paint the nail to the edge of the tape with your color of choice (red, pink and white are all cute for Valentine's Day). Paint another coat; let it dry for about five minutes. Clean up the triangle with an angled eyeliner brush dipped in an acetone-based polish remover.
Step 4: Dip a dotting tool in an opaque white polish and create three to four vertical columns of dots. Start in the center vertical line and then work towards the edges. Try to space out the rows of dots in an alternating pattern.
Step 5: Apply a topcoat to the entire nail once the dots have dried.
