The Perfect Nails for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is definitely one of those holidays we want our style game strong for. So, whether your V-Day plan is a big night out or a quiet night in, finish off your look with a fun and fresh set of nails! Check out 5 of the hottest nail styles making hearts throb this year.

Sealed with a kiss

What screams romance more than a perfectly-placed pair of lips! This flirty look starts with a white, pink or red base polish. After the base coat, paint a pair of tiny lips in a different color.

Hugs and kisses

Or X’s and O’s for short! Draw a perfect little X and O in gold or silver glitter polish over a red or pink base, alternating with each finger.

Halfway there

If you already have almond shaped nails, this style uses the tip of your nail as the base of a heart. Draw the rest of the heart in red, stopping halfway up your nail over clear or white polish.

Be still my heart

You can never have too many hearts on V-Day! This super-cute look starts with a neutral or white base. Paint a delicate red or bright pink heart at the base of each nail bed.

The “L” word

What’s a better look for V-Day than LOVE spelled out across your nails? You can use a stencil to create super-fine, delicate letters in bold red over a white or pink base. Or for a flowery touch, draw your letters with tiny red or white rosebuds lined up in the shape of LOVE. Use your thumb nails for the perfect accent of a hand-drawn heart or matching bud.

Give yourself and your nails the V-Day treatment this year. After all, it’s all about sharing the love, right? Do you have a passion for creating gorgeous nail art all year round?
