Make sure your nails are looking sleek and prime to impress both your sweetheart and admiring onlookers as you slow-dance beneath the stars. Need ideas on creating vivacious Valentine’s Day nails? Look no more.
The possibilities are endless when imagining chic and fabulous ways to jazz up your nails for the romantic date. Below are eight flirty and fancy nail designs to give you inspiration when deciding on the perfect nails to dazzle your beau. The designs are done by Nail Model Diane Moran Graham on her Custom Nail Solutions custom-fit nails.
Catch My Heart Mani: People share their hearts and feelings with their loved ones on Valentine’s Day. Celebrate this tradition with a mani featuring red hearts enclosed in little boxes! For this mani, make sure to have on-hand pink polish, red polish, and a stamp featuring crisscrossing lines with hearts in the spaces between the lines (such as the DRK-A large stamping plate from Ninja Polish). First, paint all of your nails pink and let dry, then place red polish over the design on the stamping plate and use the nail kit’s scraper to rid the plate of excess polish. While the red polish is still wet, place the stamper over the plate so the heart and lines design transfers, then press the stamper down on each nail. Complete the look with a glossy topcoat!
Blush-Worthy Bejeweled Tips: Dazzle your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day with a mani featuring a brilliant bejeweled French tip! To do this mani, have on-hand pink polish, pink nail gems, and nail glue. Paint all of the nails pink and let dry, then, for the first nail, glue on the nail gems in a horizontal line at the beginning of your nail tip. Add a second row of gems above the first line, then do this gem design for the rest of the nails. This is sure to add the perfect dose of flirty fun to your Valentine’s Day dinner outfit!
Charming Conversation Hearts: We all love noshing on conversation hearts candy on Valentine’s Day, so celebrate this yearly tradition with a heart candy manicure! Make sure to have on-hand white polish and polishes in pastel pink, pale green, lavender, light yellow, and red hues. Paint all of the nails white and let dry, then freehand-draw hearts on the nails using the green, yellow, purple, and pink polishes. Let dry, then use a toothpick to write little words and phrases like “LOVE,” “XOXO,” “UR CUTE,” etc. using the red polish. Complete the look with a clear topcoat!
Sincere Heart Silhouettes: From cards to boxes of chocolate, hearts adorn everything on Valentine’s Day. Make sure your nails also show your heartfelt love! A mani featuring heart silhouettes connected by little line “vines” will add a dash of sentiment and romance to your look for the big date! Paint all of the nails light pink or lavender and let dry, then, using a toothpick, draw little swooping line “vines” with little hearts on the ends. This romantic and sentimental manicure will surely capture your honey’s heart at your Valentine’s Day dinner!
The above nail designs will add that extra touch of flair to your Valentine's Day and ensure that every unforgettable moment is enacted with sensuality and style.
Hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day!
