The Most Popular Valentine`s Day Nails
We`re gonna show you here a lot of cute, easy and pretty ideas (on natural, acrylic and gel nails), which you may wear not only as February nail designs, but also compare with your everyday outfits. So, what`s trendy right now?
The leading position belongs to HEART NAILS, marshmallow-PINK and fiery-RED SHADES, and to GLITTER! A lot of glitter. There is even a joke, that when all else fails, sprinkle glitter on it. Chrome nails are also very in today, they are made with special pigment powder. So, you may try such mirror nails this February, why not.
One more new and interesting trend is making nail art with the help of DIP POWDER instead of gel polish. It is said to last the same amount of time (2-3 weeks in average), is taken off with acetone polish removers, and is safer for your nails. Moreover, there are a lot of different shades you may try with this powder. See the video below (in #26). DIP POWDER POLISH can become your next beauty experiment, who knows.
Soooo, we begin to show you the best and the newest Valentine`s nail designs. Hope you will find here what you are looking for – either a simple variant to DIY or more challenging one, which can be recreated by your beloved nail artist. Are you ready to be the most stylish and fashionable lady on the Valentine`s Day? Then choose one of the trendiest nail arts for February the 14th:
Heart Nail Designs for Valentine`s Day
Heart nails are our favorite. It is the most symbolic nail art idea, always trendy and easily done. Hearts can be big or tiny, drawn on every nail or on just 1-2 fingers. Sometimes you may see creative French designs with hearts, which can be on tips, on just one or both nail sides, in the center of the nail, ombre-ed, solid or covered with a golden glitter. All hearts in our article are different, we swear you! Ready to find something new and creative? Let`s go!
1. Nail art with pink ombre heart.
The first variant and we have a bonus for you – it is a video tutorial! From @nailsartclips. It is mega-cute! Ombre effect is a gradual change of color from lighter to darker shade. Is made with a sponge (you may buy special ones or take actually any sponge you have, it is also possible to make ombre nails with brushes). But you need a heart stencil in this particular case. Apply gradient on the white base, and your nail design is ready.
2. Nude design with one red nail and small hearts.
The simpler, the better. You can make your favorite nude nail design festive by adding glitter. Quite stylish, isn`t it? Moreover, you may not only draw those small red hearts, you may use glamorous heart-shaped gems, tiny stickers, etc. Your Valentines nails need to be extraordinary this year.
3. Knitted sweater nails with hearts.
Do you know that sweater nails (or cardigan nails, as they are also called) are still in trend? Here you have ones, but with some Valentine`s day vibes. Generally speaking, this mani looks cute. And quite easy to make. Hearts can be drawn with a different color (for example, with a darker or contrasting shade) or even sprinkled with glitter, enriched with gems and other tiny accessories. You may experiment. But the simple nail art in this picture is also ok. Don`t overdo.
And one more fresh idea for sweater nails we found on Masha Create`s Youtube channel (she is a Russian blogger). She shows how to do the cashmere nail design with the help of new TNL Plush polish. We think it`s very cool! Follow her, she constantly has creative nail design ideas.
4. Nail art ‘hearts on tips’.
They can be also called peek-a-boo hearts, at least our team liked this name the most. You can`t even imagine how simply it is done. Probably Edward Scissorhands could also recreate it… A great idea in case you didn`t make appointment with your nail artist…and need to invent smth. 10 minutes before you leave the house.
5. Tiny blue hearts nail art.
Need more hearts? Here you have the nails full of them. Additionally, they are in a non-traditional color for Valentine`s day. These tiny blue hearts look girlish and romantic. A cute pastel dress, such mani, and you are ready for your perfect date. In this picture heart stencils are used. However, you may draw them yourself. Or, as a variant, make dots and transform them into hearts with a needle or a toothpick. Got inspired? Read on and find even more Valentines nail designs )
6. Nude nail design with black and red hearts.
Nude manicure itself looks great on correctly shaped and properly treated nails, and if you add some small but cute details to it, it is a 100% winning combination! These nails can be worn even to the office. They can be festive and casual, cute and romantic, contrasting and edgy. Everything depends on colors you will choose and the size of hearts. For Valentine`s day opt for something coquettish and creative, of course. Don`t be too shy )
7. Bordo Valentine`s French nails.
Found on @doobysnails` IG. This nail art is almost the same as shown above (remember peek-a-boo nails?) ), but looks more stylish and grown-up. Agree, that French manicure is one of the most traditional and classic designs. Adding hearts to it makes real magic. You get a non-trivial nail art, which all the girls will copy next year) BTW, these nails are fake. You can order them and fix in a few minutes with a help of special glue. A very cool and simple idea, which will save you a lot of time and your nerves also. One more hint: you may create similar French nail design with colorful tips (so cute!).
8. Beige Valentine nail art with hearts, bows and dots.
A very cool combination, which was saved by several thousands Pinterest users! This means it is viral, trendy, fashionable. A lot of women think it is the best idea for Valentine`s day celebrations. Maybe it is because of its easiness: you can do it in 5 minutes or less. You know that female`s bad habit to make mani right before leaving the house and heading to the party. This idea is perfect for such cases. Use 2 basic colors, add dots, several hearts and bows. You don`t need any nail artist for this masterpiece.
9. Red and white nails with hearts.
Simple and glamorous. This nail art, made a week or two before Valentine`s day, will recall your husband/boyfriend that you like to exchange gifts on the 14th of February and want to have a romantic date) Will you choose a SPA-hotel or a dinner at the restaurant? These cute hearts on your nails are too noticeable to ignore the Valentine`s day celebration. And you can choose any colors for this nail art, which is even more exciting.
10. Pink and silver nail art with stripes and hearts.
It seems to us, that this nail design is one of the most viral on the web. We saw it in purple and blue shades, with silver and golden stripes, with glitter and strasses. Which one is version 1.0? It is hard to track now, but all of them are ideal for this year`s 14th of February. The secret of being so popular is possibly hidden in its marine style. Sweet memories of the beach rest in the middle of cold season… what can be more pleasant?

11. White LOVE nail design.
Simple, cute, but stylish Valentine nails design. And one more epithet comes to our mind when we see this matte miracle – minimalistic. Devoted to all real aesthetes and perfectionists. Write the word ‘love’ on your nails and you are ready for your Valentine`s day evening! BTW, this mani looks equally good on short and long nails.
12. Nail design with LOVE in black, white and pink colors.
This one can`t be called minimalistic. It is modern, cute and, despite its pastel shades, bright and bold. Here we see retro-stripes, hearts, pink color, LOVE. Everything exists in perfect harmony.
