I love this revamped version of Valentine’s Day red. The white and silver (not to mention the adorable magnet and flirty words) are the PERFECT way to show off your playful, but seductive spirit!

For The Valentine Vixen Who Is Bright & Bubby…

Perhaps it’s because I could use several glasses, but these nails remind me of a sweet glass of pink moscato! The shimmery pink combined with the black and white create a clean but whimsical look that I adore!

This look is NOT for the faint of heart. But between the glossy black, the heart decals and the bling… It’s definitely a great way to get some instant va va va voom!

Every time I look at these nails, I hear “We… Are the Crystal Gems…” in my mind and that’s EXACTLY why I love them. The soft ballerina pink polish, the gorgeous crystals and the coffin shape is a chocolate-and-peanut butter caliber pairing I didn’t know I needed in my life!

If you are the type who fell in love with the cutest little guy in the Disney Kingdom, then this design is sure to pay homage to your forever boo in the bow tie. I love the mix of sweetness and fierceness in this design.

Is your Valentine out of this world? Is your love as big as Jabba the Hut? These nail designs remind me of the Valentine’s Day cards I’d give out to my classmates back in the day. It’s glam AND geeky, and I’m pretty much here for them!

For all the candy girls out there, you know you smiled as soon as you saw these nails. Candy hearts are one of the BEST things about V-Day, so why not let your nails express the sweetness of love?

For The Valentine Vixen Who Is OVER It…

Not everyone is here for the hearts and flowers. If your playlist for the next few days contains music from Mary J. Blige, Sade, and 75% of Lemonade, then you’re probably tired of people asking you what your plans are. What better way to let them know then by lifting a carefully-selected finger in their general direction, showing off your manicure at the same time?

Whether you are in a relationship, or you are repping #TeamSingle like I am, Valentine’s Day is a day of love. However, it doesn’t have to be limited to romantic love. It can be a day to express self-love by doing something special for yourself… Like treating yourself to a manicure! Everyone should feel special and loved, and sometimes it’s up to us to do it ourselves! Trust me, you deserve it!
