It was love at first site for us when we saw Vanessa Hudgens' pretty heart nail art-- just in time for Valentine's Day! The it girl, who will surely be spending 14 February with her beau, Austin Butler, has been running around New York Fashion Week until then. She showed off her nails at the Jenny Packham Fall 2013 collection show.

Funnily enough, we spotted another version of this manicure on Kelly Osbourne at the Grammy Awards! While Kelly went for white nail varnish, Vanessa-- who has a penchant for all things black and classy-- chose black hearts for her fingers.

Here is how you, too, can get this classy look for the day of hearts!

Step One: Prep

The first step is just to get your nails good and shiny. Apply a top coat in clear shade. Let them dry (you can speed up this step by using a hairdryer)

Step Two: Create your heart stencil

The best tip for good nail art is creating a stencil for yourself with scotch tape.

The stiletto part of your nails will form the base of the heart... so you just have to create the top of the heart (try cutting out a shape like a number 3.)

Step Three: Stick it!

Put your tape stencil on your nails!

Step Four: Start painting

Choose the colour you want for you hearts... you can go with black like Vanessa, white like Kelly or you could even go for something more statement like a pink or red. Paint using the stencil as a guideline. It's best to remove the tape while your nails are still a little wet.

Step Five: The overcoat

After your heart nails have dried, add a final top coat of clear nail polish for really good hold.

A good look for any old day

This nice thing about this look is that it doesn't necessarily have to be for Valentine's Day... you can do it any day and in any colour! Maybe that's why Vanessa has left her pout behind for a smile!
