The pink ombre design is hugely popular and mixing that with the encapsulated hearts is super trendy and such a good idea.

If you want a cute, understated design, then this is the one for you. The classic nude is clean and classy, but the white heart details add a cute dainty look to the manicure. This is perfect for a more casual Valentine’s day or if you simply prefer modest nail designs.
6. Simply Love
This is a great nail design to try out this Valentine’s day; the two textures adds some character to the design and make it more unique. The nude and red together blend well, and the hearts against the nude stand out nicely. This is a great, playful design, perfect for Valentine’s day.
7. Heart Tips
The clear tip design is a very popular design. The pink nail polish is bright and bold, and against the clear tip is makes it very eye-catching. The heart details are simple but add a lot of character and fun to the design.
8. Arrow Heart
The contrast between the black and nude stands out and creates a statement. This is a cute, simple detail that makes an excellent design for Valentine’s day. The added touch of gold makes the design look a lot more detailed and luxurious.
9. All Love
Clear nail designs are a very new trend and are quickly becoming popular. The red foil type details look chic and delicate. The different shaped nails are different but make the manicure a lot more eye-catching. This is a very stylish design to have for Valentine’s day.
10. L. O. V. E
Nude nails are everyone’s go-to, so why not add something extra to it. This design is easy and simple, yet it is a perfect design for Valentine’s day. The bold red letter design is sleek and chic; this design is a great way to have a statement manicure.
11. Touch of Heart
This type of design has been very popular in the last few seasons, the bare nail is classy and understated, but the multi-coloured tips make them more eye-catching and bold. This is a great design if you like to add a little bit of colour to your design but don’t want a big design.
12. Ruby Red
The white and red are classic designs for Valentine’s day; this design is full of detail. This is a glamorous and chic nail design. The different details on each nail are fun and unique and great touch to add personality to your design.

This such a simple yet cute design. The nude base is a classy chic look, and the intricate nail art design is a great design to have this Valentines. The white detail mixed with the red and pink hearts create a contrast and make the nail design stand out a lot more. I like how the design is in different places on each nail, it adds a creative and unique feel to the manicure.
14. Ying & Yang
Tip designs have been very popular for quite a while, and this is a perfect way to stand out from the trend but still have a stylish nail design. The white and red against each other is striking and will definitely be eye catching. I like how the hearts are the opposite colour to the tip, not only does it stick with the theme of the nail design but it makes it more appealing to look at compared to a plain nail polish.
15. Cloud Nine
This is a perfectly cute and girly design to have this Valentines; the pink is a classic for Valentines, and then mixed with a cute nail art design it creates a great combo. The cartoon cloud design is fun and creative, paired with the multi coloured love hearts is a very playful design which is perfect for Valentines. I like that the design is on the two middle nails as it breaks up the solid colour and draws attention to the main focus of the design.
16. Red Shimmer
This is one of my favourite designs, reflective glitter polish is super popular right now, and we can all see why. The deep shimmer it gives is a lovely, classy way of incorporating glitter into your nail design. Then when a light is shone on them, the sparkle is beautiful, perfect for all your valentines photos. If you’re planning on trying any of these designs, this is definitely the one to try.
17. Neutral Love
This is a lovely design if you like Valentine themed nails but like to stick to neutral tones. The nude base is flattering to all nail shapes and skin colours; it’s also very classy and modest. The little brown heart gives it a small detail that makes it more exciting and on theme, and the different heart placements give it a distinctive touch.
18. Pink Marble
This is a more classic nail design for Valentine’s, definitely a design that’s been popular for a few years now, but nevertheless, it’s still a great option to celebrate with. The deep pink is more classy and has a more mature and formal vibe; a great option if you’re looking for a design that’ll be suitable for your workwear too. The marble design and glitter accent nails are a lovely way of adding more detail to a nail design, and they both complement each other well.
19. Rainbow Hearts
This is such a fun yet cute design. Having multiple colours on a nail design is a great way of trying out a trend whilst keeping it unique. The little hearts are a nice playful design that still makes a detailed and impressive design. The nude base keeps the design classy and allows each colour to stand out and create a statement manicure.
20. Valentine’s Dream
This design has so many different trends and styles, making it a super trendy and stylish manicure. The bright pink is perfect for Valentine’s day, and it’s great for creating a statement look.
The contrast of the red hearts adds to that statement look and makes it even more eye-catching. The crystal accent nail adds a bit of glitz and glam to the design, and with the french tip nail, it calms down the design and keeps it looking stylish.
21. Black Heart
This is a more classic nail design, with the block colour and accent nails. The chunky glitter nails add glitz to the design whilst balanced out with the block colour and nude nails. The love heart detail with the strip of glitter polish is a nice understated way of creating a Valentine’s day manicure. This is a design that looks great on natural nails and nails of all lengths.
22. Red Roses
This manicure is very popular at the moment, and it’s a perfect design to try out this Valentine’s. The bright red is a classic; it’s chic and sophisticated; paired with an abstract detail in the accent nails adds a fun, playful element to the design. The almond shape is feminine and very flattering, perfect for celebrating this holiday.
23. Starry Eyed
Not every Valentine’s day do you need a nail design that is pink or red or covered in love hearts; sometimes, it’s nice to have something different. The glitter tips are a nice alternative, they’re still a special manicure, but they’re also a nice change from more classic Valentine’s nail designs.
The muted glitter is a nice option to go for as it’s more elegant than chunky glitter and has a more sophisticated look. The added detail of the rhinestones completes the design; they give it a more luxurious, expensive feel.
24. From the Bottom of My Heart
If you’re looking for Valentine’s day related nail design that is subtle and perfect for everyday wear, this is for you. The classic french tip is perfect for so many occasions; whether you want a design for every day or a special occasion, it’s a great go-to. The small pink heart is such a cute, girly design; it’s a nice detail that not many go for. This is definitely a great option for your Valentine’s nails this year.
25. Pure Love
White nail designs for Valentine’s day have a pure and elegant feel. This design is lovely; all the different features work so well together and create an amazing statement manicure. French manicures always look clean and elegant; the white heart design is something different and a subtle way of adding the Valentine’s theme to a design. The pearl detailing is a lovely way of completing the look that gives the manicure a luxurious finish.
26. Shower of Love
This design is a personal favourite; there’s so much detail in it but still so simple. The mix of full-polish nails and tip nails has been very popular for a while now, so it’s nice to incorporate this trend into a design. However, the heart detail on the two middle nails adds a unique touch to the design and adds a nice twist to the trend. The milky white base is also very stylish, giving the design a chic yet clean look.
27. Loves in The Air
This type of design has been very popular recently, and what better time to try it than Valentine’s day. A classic nude base has a clean, fresh look to it with the small heart details; it’s just a nice simple design. The odd glitter heart is a nice way of adding a bit of sparkle and making it that little bit more special to celebrate this holiday.
28. 50/50 Love
This is a really unique design; it’s definitely one to go for if you’re looking for a design that’ll stand out. The contrast between the two colours and the alternative pattern is super eye-catching and distinctive.
Everything about this design screams Valentine’s day; the colours, the design, and the details. The long coffin-shaped nails really complement the design, too; they work really well together and create the ultimate Valentine’s day manicure.
29. Pink to Make the Boys Wink
Swirl designs have been popular recently, which is a great way to try it out. This design is cute and stylish, but by only having the design at the tips, it keeps the design idea simple and a different way of trying out the trend.
The light pink and dark pink create a contrast that complements each other but also makes it catches people’s attention. In addition to that, the added detail of the pearls is another way of making them more unique to you.
30. Classic Love
The nude, barely there nail design is a great look; it looks like a freshened-up version of your natural nails and has a very elegant, put-together look. The single heart nail art is a great look for Valentine’s day.
It’s small, but the bright red stands out and creates a statement alone; sometimes, less is more. This design is perfect if you’re looking for a design suitable for work or every day. The simplicity keeps it in line with workwear, but the small love heart detail is a subtle way to take on the Valentine’s day theme.
