2. Using a detail or striping brush, polish a vertical line of Too Too Hot in the middle of each accent nail, followed by two curved lines on either side to form a heart.

3. Using a detail brush, fill in one side of each heart with Too Too Hot. On the opposite side of the nail, fill in the area surrounding the heart in Too Too Hot to make a checkerboard pattern.
