How To Do Heart Nail Art Manicure At Home In Four Simple Steps

Heart nail art isn't just for Valentine's Day - this super sweet trend can look stylish all year round.

In the spirit of this year's Bestival theme - 'Summer of Love' - we bring you the simplest guide to DIY nails you'll fall in love with.

East London-based freelance nail artist Maddy Ayers (Maad Nails) told HuffPost UK Style how to get the look in four simple steps:

1. For some speedy romantic nail art, start off with a layer of base coat (here I used Bourjois).

2. Next, add the hearts in different shades of pink. Start off from the left hand side of the nail about a third of the way down from the cuticle. Using a small amount of polish, draw a semicircle from the edge to the middle of the nail, and then another one from the middle to the right hand side.

3. Fill in the rest of the heart shape with the chosen pink and repeat for a second coat, to give a vibrant colour. The polishes I used were (left to right): Passementerie Blush from & Other Stories, Hibiscus from Natural Collection, Acid Watermelon by L’Oreal Color Riche and YSL’s Rose Renaissance.

4. Once dry, add a thick layer of top coat to seal it in (I used China Glaze), and voila!
