V-Day Nails How-To

Valentine’s Day is here at last. And with it comes all the heart-shaped trends. One of our faves? Heart décor for your nails. Ladies, whether you’ve got a Valentine or are flying solo, try this super cute nail design for Valentine’s Day.


What you need:

  • Pink nail polish
  • Red nail polish
  • White nail polish
  • Top coat polish (optional)
  • Toothpicks


What to do:

  1. Paint your nails pink and let dry.
  2. On your ring finger nail, use a toothpick and dab on two dots (side by side) of red polish.
  3. Before the red dries, use the same toothpick to smear the polish down so that the dots connect, forming the heart.
  4. With another toothpick, use white polish to dab on white dots to outline the heart.
  5. Add a top coat if you wish and your fab V-Day mani is complete!


Note: Feel free to go a little crazy and put a heart on each nail!


Have any fun Valentine’s manis of your own? I’d love to see.
