It’s been a hot minute since we’ve last uploaded some new nail art inspirations but with V’Day dawning upon us, it would only be appropriate to get some new inspos for our romantic night out this February. Rounding up some of the most adorable, lovey-dovey nail ideas that you can try this holiday, ahead, you’ll find some of the most charming designs that will have your heart swooning for the rest of the month.
1. HEART TIPS
Celebrate Valentine’s Day with a cute manicure like these heart tips that are totally apt for the occasion. Why wear your heart on your sleeves when you can wear it on your nails instead, right?
2. “THE CHILD” AKA BABY YODA
By now you’d be well acquainted with it, or at least have seen a ton of memes about it on your feed — agree? An elaborate ode to our favourite little creature, here’s a nail design to feed that Baby Yoda obsession of yours.
3. STILETTO RED FRENCH TIP
For those who like delicate nail art designs, this one’s just for you. These Stiletto Tips are hot on trend and for good reason. Yes, they do kind of look like claws but the difference is: they’re basically elliptical but they are rather circular at the top. Not to mention, it’s really low maintenance too!
4. “WHAT A SWEETHEART”
Nothing spells ‘sweetheart’ better than this heart-accented set! Opt for a solid pink base and top it off with small heart shapes on each nail to strike a balance between simplicity and glamour.
Breathe new life into your classics with this unique wirework nail design that’s sure to be the next new trend taking over Instagram. Decidedly different from your usual, sparkly manicures, the wirework nail art look uses ultra-thin strands of gold wire on the nails that redefines and elevates your look with its three-dimensional design.
6. GRID EXTENSIONS
Any beauty aficionado would approve of extensions especially when it comes with a one-of-a-kind design like this. Negative space art designs have always been a classic that we won’t get tired of and this grid look isn’t any different. Instead of your usual solid base, opt for clear gel extensions and line them with thin white grids for an eye-catching ensemble like no other.
7. HINT OF GOLD
Also on tap are these gold-accented nails. A trendy take on your typical nude combo, these nails beg for attention with its soft and subtle look, topped with a hint of gold on the rims. Besides, it’s simple, delicate and it doesn’t look the slightest bit garish at all!
8. NAILED IT
Taking a new spin on your classic french tip, this French-influenced art design gives off a vibe that’s reminiscent of the noughties. While maintaining its nude blush pink base, the design brings back your favourite french mani in a way you don’t remember it — paired with white catty-corner accents for a more updated look. We totally dig!
9. GLASS CLAWS
The next design to add to our repertoire? Red glass claws. In fact, they’re no ordinary glass claws — this set comes with a red base and a translucent tip for a look that’s bold, sultry and demands attention. Basically, it’s THE Valentine’s Day nails every girl has ever dreamed of.
10. CHIARA FERRAGNI
Be it Valentine’s Day, your anniversary, or in fact, any other day, we’d always want to look and feel like a million bucks. A trendy design that pairs well with easy-breezy dresses, these graphic nails channels your inner Chiara Ferragni in you with her symbolic design that stays true to her brand and is sure to be the talk of the town for the following weeks ahead.
If the mere thought of sitting in the nail salon for 3 hours deters you from getting a manicure, then you’d find yourself searching for a much simpler option that you can try at home instead.
Setting a minimalist tone, these 1-Line Art designs have long been a cult favourite to many — and it’s partially because of how easy it is to achieve. Varying between horizontal and vertical lines (and a few squiggles here and there), the design may seem a little boring to some for a Valentine’s Day look but let us assure you that it’s anything but.
12. NEGATIVE SPACE
Here’s another addition that plays up your usual french mani. For something that’s a little more complex, skip the solid base nude base coat in favour of this red-lined look.
13. FLOWERS FOR YOU
Sure, receiving a bouquet of flowers for Valentine’s Day would be amazing, but it’s even more enticing to have them on your digits too. Don’t you agree? With this pairing, you can be sure that this combo will go hand in hand with everything.
14. CHARMING RED
These nails might look like something you’d get out from the CNY catalogue but take a look closer and you’d be swooning over its details. A mani that keeps it low key with a high key luxury aesthetic, this red nail look is bold, versatile and oh-so-charming.
