With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, have you figured out your nail art? Whether you’re single or couples, Valentine’d is the perfect occasion to showcase something feminine and flirty. Get inspired with these 3 mani ideas and DIY or visit your fave nail salon to complete your look.
1. Red Heart – No shade is more classic for V-Day than a bright red. So glam up this year’s mani with a couple coats of your favorite ruby hue. Before you apply your topcoat, add hearts to your nails using super simple heart stencils and glitter polish. If you don’t have a heart stencil, you can make one by cutting a heart out of scotch tape and applying the cutout to your nail, then filling in the center.
2. 10-Minute Glitter Topcoat – Short on time, but still want to look fab this Valentine’s? Add a topcoat with glitter and heart decals over any nail color to instantly showcase your love. Stick with traditional V-Day hues like pink and red or try this over a trend color like navy, aqua or plum. It will look live you’ve painstakingly applied tiny hearts to your nails.
3. Rocker Chic – You don’t have to go pink or red just ’cause it’s V-Day. Try a “tough love” look this year with a matte black mani spiffed up with some studs or gems. To get this look, apply two layers of matte black nail polish, then finish with a matte topcoat. Push this one over the edge by gluing on nail studs or nail gems when the topcoat dries. In a pinch, you can also use a silver nail pen to draw designs or make dots that resemble studs. Alternately, you can gloss up this look with high-sheen black and a glossy topcoat.
