How to create "the look" in 5 steps:

(Step 1)

 Apply blue nail polish generously ( at least 2 coats) to lay down a good bluish foundation. 
Let air-dry for 10 minutes.

(Step 2)

Apply the second color, silver, on top of blue evenly and generously but you need 1 layer of silver only. Let air-dry for 10 minutes.

 (Step 3)

(take a look at the ringfinger in image below)
With the thin polish brush, dip it with just a little bit of black polish and graffiti your nails with it. Don't worry about how messy it might look right now. Just make sure you don't cover too much of the silver. Let air-dry for 5 minutes.

(Step 4)

With the thin nail brush, dip in pink or red polish then graffiti your nails the same way you did in step 3 with one KEY DIFFERENCE-- give the middle of your nail more solid red/pink. That middle spot will be carved into hearts in the next step.

(Step 5)

With the flat head mini screw-driver (hold it like you're writing/carving) and gently with almost no force scrape away the top coats to create the shape of a heart. Notice you don't want to carve too deep and scrape away the purple foundation too much. If you like, you can carve in little spots elsewhere around the heart to give it more texture.  Let air dry for half hour then apply top coat to keep it lasting longer--at least until Valentine's is over.
