Cut Out Heart Nails Inspired by McQueen

Today's nails are inspired by the late great designer, Alexander McQueen.

These high fashion heels are McQueens Valentine heels in red patent leather with navy blue soles.  

The peep toe has an extra added romantic twist as it is shaped like a heart.

For my nails I used Zoya Riley for a plum-maroon shade as the base.  While the polish was wet I dipped a straight edge small brush in acetone.  Using the brush it was a few swipes to wipe away the polish to create a heart shaped cut out of my own. 

I was thinking about nude (like toes!) but upgraded to gold instead using Essie's As Gold As It Gets for the smaller center heart.  

I think McQueen would approve.  Would you sport this cutout heart look for Valentine's Day?
