Valentine’s Day Nails

Valentine's Day Nails

I decided to deck out my nails out for Valentine’s Day by alternating a hot red and pink polish and doing something different with the thumb nail. I love a glitter polish layer over a white nail and was inspired by a lot of the Valentine’s Day candies out there (okay so the pink, red and white M&Ms, so cute and so yummy). Are you making your nails festive for Valentine’s Day?

    I have so many reds and pinks that I might need to do an ombre mani in those shades for Valentine’s Day! Or the touch of sparkle you did here is cute too! Too many options!

      Inna, EXACTLY! I’m no nail artist, or good with nail design, but this is a fun look that I’ve never done before! Still took someone like me awhile to do haha!

    ahh!! Your V-day nails are awesome! I love that you threw in the white sparkle thumb. I had hot pink on my nails, but it chipped like crazy so I took it off and haven’t had time to redo them. Sad.

    Love the colors!! I am a rock climber so unfortunately my nice manicured nails don’t last very long. I’ll have to make an exception for this Valentines day though :)
