Who says your Valentine’s Day nail art has to only be red and pink? You can totally add some different pops of colors into your design – like this colorful heart look shared by Essie brand.

Love Letter

Remember back in elementary school when Valentine’s Day meant trading corny cards with your classmates? The grown up version of that precious tradition is wearing little love letters on your fingertips – and maybe even penning one for bae when you’re through creating this masterpiece!

Connected Heart

Cupid would be so impressed by the way this design brings two halves of a heart together. Gold leaf and pearl gems adorn this luxurious manicure, but we are especially loving the idea of continuing one design across multiple tips.

Heart Tips

How do you make almond-shaped nails even more eye-catching and fierce? By adding gold stripes and dipped half-hearts on the tips, of course! These tips are insanely sexy – and a more subtle way to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your style.
