Whether it be the deep love you share with a partner, or a relationship of true love with none other than yourselfFebruary is a month dedicated to outwardly expressing that passionate admiration, and being grateful for the pure joy it brings to every one of our lives.

And as beauty girlies who take their nails very seriously: ICYMI, using a significant other’s initials for nail art is *everywhere* RN, and is a sweet way to subtly honor your loved one (especially for Valentine’s Day).

But what is the initial nail trend, exactly? Well, usually paired with a more minimal manicure (like a luxe neutral or on-trend red), countless celebs have been declaring their love in a more minimal way, adding their lover’s initials on a statement nail. Whether it be hand-painted, an easy-to-use decal jewel, or a sweet letter outlined in rhinestones, the result is a subtle nod to their own love story that may go completely overlooked, but is one of the sweetest ways to honor them once it is noticed. And as stars like Jennifer Lopez and Kourtney Kardashian have dipped their fingertips into the trend in their own unique way, it’s been hard not to take notice.

In case you’re considering nails with your boo’s initials, here are some of the faves.
