Valentine's nail ideas from Pinterest
If, like us, you're a sucker for the most romantic day of the year, you'll be keen to do everything you can to transform yourself into a Valentine's Day goddess. And, the first step of any Valentine's beauty look is an amazing manicure filled with love hearts and glitter. Nail art is forever getting more creative, so we've rounded together the most passionate nail paint ideas that Pinterest has to offer.
If you can't pick just one idea that you like, incorporate a few and mix it up! We love these different pastels colours, cut out heart and gold flecks.
The look of love
You'll need a steady hand for this gorgeous design, but we're sure it will be well worth your efforts! Invest in a white nail art pen for the writing and choose whichever shade you desire for underneath.
Ombre is set to be a big trend in weddings and in nails! Pink is a perfect choice for Valentine's Day as there are so many different hues!
If you don't want a design that's too out there, go for the 'one nail' tactic and leave the rest of your nails in a blank colour. Just be careful to keep a running theme or colour scheme between all of the nails so that they don't look too random.
For a chic but cute Valentine's touch on your talons, simply file your nail into a point and use this as the base for a love heart. It looks simple but so effective and it's pretty easy to do!
You have the key to my heart
This amazing design gets top marks for creativity. We love how the nails look fabulous when apart, but even more so when brought together, just like you and your h2b!
Cuticles are about to take centre stage in nail art. We've predicted this as a big beauty trend for weddings in 2015, and to stay ahead of the curve you can do it for your everyday nails as well! Make your cuticle a feature with a contrasting colour or glittery effect. We think this look is perfect for Valentine's Day.
Sweet as candy
We all have a soft spot for the retro, romantic charm of love heart sweets. And nothing says Valentine's more than painting their cute messages on your nails for all to see.
Pretty in pink
Pick your favourite colour and then add a special Valentine's Day touch with a tiny heart on one of your nails. This subtle shape is a nod to the romantic holiday but will still work with your everyday look.
We heart Valentine's!
We love this idea because it incorporates a 3D design into your artwork. If you're looking to give your Valentine's look a real oomph, stick-on gems are the way to do it!
Matching your accessories to your nail art is the sign of a true pro!
Who said nail art can't be clever? Impress your Valentine with this sassy design and prepare to pucker up!
Roses are a universal symbol of Valentine's Day, the most romantic flower and a gift we'd all like to receive! So if love hearts aren't the way you want to go, try something as fabulously floral as this.
