Welcome to our favorite kind of manicure — looks extremely professional but easy to recreate at home with the right tools. Nail artist Tessa started with a coat of her favorite sheer base polish, Orly’s Rose-Colored Glasses. Then, she added a half-layer of Kinno gold foil flakes, which are supposed to look abstract and uneven. Next, she used a heart stamper to add a mix of white and red hearts before finishing with a glossy topcoat. Folks who can’t freehand paint, this look is for you. Nail artist Betina Goldstein reminds us that finding love is all about the luck of the draw with this design. She used a classic red polish from Essie’s 202 Valentine’s Day collection (now out of stock. This year’s Love-Note Worthy blue-toned red will do quite nicely as a replacement) to paint. The numbers and suits in this instantly recognizable tribute. Bonus: You can reuse the design for the World Series of Poker.
If you have a hard time parting with your festive nail art after the holiday in question, opt for Miss Pop’s Valentine’s look. The nail artist used a striping brush to paint pink and purple kisses atop a soft-pink background, leaving a translucent half-moon that will turn into a waxing moon as your nails start to grow.
