Using a pen/pencil/toothpick/anything with a small dotted point, create small dots of white polish around the tops of your hearts. Let your nails dry completely.

Once your nails have dried completely, it's time to add your topcoat! I love this look matte so I used Essie's Matte About You. Of course the matte look is optional & you can use a regular clear coat!
