Here's the post where I show how I make the heart stencils: http://www.manicurator.com/2012/07/lazy-days-of-summer-fave-towel-hearts.html For this one, I wanted some bare nail to show through, so after I stuck my tape heart stencil to my already dry nail, I used one of my tapered Q-tips dipped in remover to clean away the heart shape. Super easy. I've also used these tapered Q-tips to clean nail polish that has seeped under the nail. Works like a charm!
I love that the Q-tips® brand is donating 1 Million Q-tips® cotton swabs to three great organizations that can use them daily – Operation Gratitude for care packages to service men and women, Ronald McDonald House® New York for arts & crafts and everyday use and Glamour Gals for intergenerational manicures & makeovers. They have also agreed to giveaway a package to one of my lucky readers to try :) The contest will start at midnight 9/1 and run until midnight 9/8/12 Here's how to enter:

OK!! Finally, let's see my Fall Falling hearts!!
I started with 2 coats of OPI Schnapps Out of It.
Used these for clean-up and to remove some heart shapes to show bare nail underneath.
My camera did not want to cooperate with this manicure, not sure what it is about reds and oranges that glow from within like these do...but it makes my camera not want to play nice! The first and last photos I think are the most color accurate.
Have a great weekend everyone!!
