What could be simpler than painting a solitary heart on nude nails?
Expand your horizons this Valentine’s Day by thinking beyond the typical red and pink shades. Go ombre by combining a deep plum with a glistening gold for nails with shimmer to spare.
Paint your nails sheer pink, but don’t stop there. Add berry-colored crescent tips for a look everyone will love.
This Valentine’s Day, don’t go all the way. Stop painting nails blush pink about three-quarters of the way down for an easy take on the negative space trend.
Who says polish has to be perfect? Try haphazardly painting your nails red with some strategic negative space.
Play up your nails’ natural pinkish hue by drawing a single black line on one finger on each hand for a little edge. No other polish required.
Forgo red and pink in favor of magenta for a striking Valentine’s Day mani that is sure to make a statement.
Swipe a pair of horizontal stripes on nails. Opt for a vibrant red and cool burgundy for a holiday-appropriate look.
Split the difference between a classic red and a wine-colored shade with an open line in the center.
With Valentine’s Day a week away, you’ve probably already bought your significant other (or yourself) a heart-stopping gift. Or at least a card. You may also have a special outfit all lined up for the big day and storyboarded your makeup strategy, but you forgot one crucial element: a Valentine’s Day-appropriate manicure. Don’t worry, we’re not talking about those OTT nail jobs with cutesy hearts or tons of glitter we sported in middle school. As adults, it’s time we upgraded our manis just like we moved past those cartoon valentines we passed out to schoolmates.
This year, favor unexpected shades (not just red and pink) and don’t be afraid to add some subtle shimmer. And remember, negative space nail art is still your BFF. Here are 14 Valentine’s Day nail art ideas we’re crushing on.
