Instead of sticking with a traditional red mani, embrace ombre. Just combine a bluish pink shade and a dark burgundy for the cool effect.
Paint nails pink, but leave a half moon bare by your cuticles. Make your ring fingers stand out by painting them a fiery red shade.
We love this modern take on the classic French mani. Color your nails a deep plum hue, then finish them off with either white or pale pistachio tips.
Go graphic with slanted triangles in candy pink for a pretty negative space look.
The "adult glitter" nails at the Kate Spade New York Spring 2019 show were created by lightly dabbing hints of a sparkling bronze shade on top of a sheer peach pink.
We’re really feeling this out-of-the-box layered squares nail art. And the red hot shade on top makes it Valentine’s Day-appropriate.
Sometimes less is more. Be a bit haphazard with a peachy hue by leaving some spots on your nails open.
Take pink up a notch by rocking rose quartz nails. You’ll love the subtle marbled effect and so will your SO.
First, swipe a dusty rose on the top half of your nails. Then add pops of a metallic rose shimmer shade for a little pizzazz.
Don’t just paint your nails, paint your nail studs. Opt for a soft pink base, then color square studs a bright red before affixing to your digits.
Elevate a basic ballet pink with gold glitter half moons at the base of your nails.
Mix it up for the holiday by sporting different colored glitter crescents along the bottom of each nail.
Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to experiment with a little red on red. Paint your nails ruby red, then give them French tips in a maroon shade.
Apply a soft pink nail polish, then add random strokes of a darker pink boasting a bit of shimmer.
Swipe on red and unexpected white in swoops at the top of bare nails for a striking yet understated look.
Paint your nails a pretty petal pink, then add some sparkle to just your ring fingers.
There’s no need to go kitschy when it comes to a Valentine’s Day mani. Sure, you can draw little red hearts or just layer on a classic red or pink polish to get the job done, but this year’s celebrations require a little more effort. Whether you’re feeling like tackling tricky negative space artwork and stick-on studs or planning on booking an appointment with a manicurist, there are tons of options to choose from. From ombre tips you can’t stop staring at to multicolored glitter accents, these nail art ideas will get a lot of love come February 14.
Ahead, totally chic inspo that’ll guarantee you’ll crush the holiday this year.
