When at one time we would have jumped at the opportunity to dress our nails with outlandish designs of hearts, xo's and maybe even a cupid's bow, nail art has taken a backseat to basic, simple designs you can wear anywhere. Our favorite design this season: Jin Soon Choi's multi-toned nail art above. Follow her steps below to get the look:

Step One: File and shape your nails in a natural square or roundish shape.

Step Two: Apply a base coat like JINsoon Power Coat.

Step Three: Apply a pink shade on the entire nail bed (Jin Soon used Dolly Pink from her SS14 collection, available soon).

Step Four: Apply JINsoon Coral Peony on one side of the nail, covering about 3/4's of the nail bed and ending in a subtle curve to create half of the heart shape. Then repeat on the other side, taking special care to intersect the two sides at the center of the nail.

Step Five: Apply JINsoon Coquette on one side of the nail covering about half of the nail bed and ending in the same subtle curve as you did when applying the Coral Peony. Repeat on the other side, again taking special care to intersect the two sides at the center of the nail.

Step Six: Finish with a high-shine top coat.
