Match Made in Heaven
Better half, dream team, better together… the cheesy Valentine’s Day puns just keep coming. And while we can make all the jokes we want, we’re seriously in love with this bedazzled manicure from Nails by Mia. The pearlized polish is shimmery but subdued enough to let the iridescent rhinestones take center stage. Plus, this is ridiculously easy to DIY. Just do a half heart on your middle and ring finger and voilá, a full heart.
Pretty in Pink
Love is in the eye of the beholder, and right now, we have our loving gaze set upon these nails created by Imarni Nails. Our obsession with this dainty, heart manicure is next-level; we can’t stop staring. It’s the perfect, low-key look and still gives a nod to the holiday.
Black Heart Club
Hi, yes, we’re having a love affair with these nails. It’s unclear if the ultra-chic red and pink color-blocking or the half-black heart (#relatable) is responsible. Either way, we’ll be recreating this manicure from Jessica Washwick STAT.
Got your eye on someone special? Hoping to be struck by Cupid’s arrow? Try out this cheeky manicure by Rita Remark.

It’s a simple, stylish and high-key hilarious Valentine’s Day manicure that’s the perfect accessory to your Galentine’s Day soirée.
Wear your heart on your hand with this flirty take on a French manicure. Heart tips? C’mon, does it get any cuter than this? Bambi Borg, thank you for giving us the Valentine’s Day inspiration we didn’t know we needed. Next step: growing our nails out long enough to create the look … Wish us luck.
