February 14 is right around the corner, and no matter how you plan on celebrating, a cute mani has the potential to make this romantic holiday extra special. Whether you usually go for bold intricate designs or stick with minimalist chic, you've got countless options. To help, Bustle has rounded up 14 super-cute Valentine's Day nail art ideas, including everything from pink ombré to foil hearts, to try just in time for the occasion.
Though this holiday may seem very specific in color scheme and aesthetic — as in: red and pink-everything — the possibilities to personalize your V-Day mani are actually endless. If pink and red hearts are not your vibe, you can rock the design in neutral colors. If you aren't into the go-to symbol of the holiday at all, opt for something more abstract like a marble design. Or you can stick to the biggest nail trends of spring 2021 and apply a romantic embellishment just on the tips or even try a new unique look with an engraved 3-D design.
These nail art ideas vary in difficulty, so no worries if you can't make it to the nail salon — your basic DIY mani skills can help you pull off some of these styles while still looking like you spent hours with a nail tech.
Here are 14 Valentine's Day nail art ideas to inspire your holiday-themed manicure.
