A hint of gothic-chic there (right in time for the Adam’s Family revival) and a sprinkle of soft-girl feminine there.
These V-Day nails are the ultimate ode to pain, power, and passion of love.
Can you tell that I’m head over heels with them? The cute bleeding heart accent nail is just the cherry on top of this captivating Valentine’s manicure.
Recreating this Valentine’s Day nail art is simple and easy. The combination of the break color along with the yellow stripe for the French tips and the bleeding heart make this Valentine’s Day nail design all worth it.
If you’re not a nail artist by any means just like me, you can use a nail stamp or nail stickers to get your French tips done perfectly.
For the bleeding heart, all you need is red nail polish and a thin brush where you can easily do the heart.
2. Got my checks, Got my mate Nails
Love can be a game, and these nails know how to play. I adore nail designs that look like they took a long time to complete.

These Valentine’s nails are ideal for those among you who want to pay homage to Valentine’s Day with a quirky twist this year.
I will admit, I find them to be slightly Halloween-esque with the checked-web base, but that’s just one of the unique features that make this style entirely one of a kind.
Not only this, but the black dots lining the adorable heart nail art make the whole nail design worth recreating for Valentine’s Day.
4. Something ‘Bout You Nails
If you’re looking for Valentine’s Day nails you can take everywhere with you this Valentine’s Day, this Valentine’s nail design is my gift to you.
It lies conveniently right on the line where understated and overstated meet, making it the “Goldilocks” or just right nails for all occasions on this day of love.
I’ve always been a fan of half-moon French tips nail design and the double white line makes the whole nail design worth it along with the reversed mini hearts.
5. Velvet Hearts
If you’re feeling extra soft and light-hearted this Valentine’s day, these Valentine’s Day nails will help you let the world know.
Velvet is becoming a popular addition to the nail art world, so you can be sure you’ll be right on trend as well.
What I love about these Valentine’s Day nail designs is the fact they aren’t only perfect for Valentine’s Day but you can recreate them for Galantine’s Day and have a matching nail design with your girlfriends.

Pink and flower power are written all over your nails with this delightful Valentine’s Day-inspired masterpiece.

7. Galentines Nails
These 70-s inspired nails are funky-fresh and entirely adorable. While I feel they have a college girl feel to them, I can also picture them in the hands of any fun-loving fashionista who wants her nails to reflect her personal style and personality this year.
Instead of the typical half-moon nail design, upgrade your Valentine’s nail design with the pinkish circled design and a white big heart in the middle.
I just adore the combination of the hot pink color with white that speaks Galentine’s Day out loud.
8. Pink Valentine
Classy, refined, and elegant are just some of the ways I’d described these cute Valentine’s nails.
They’re a touch on the minimalist side, but a striking contrast nail and adorable tiny heart nail art take things up a notch to make this work of art one of my laid-back favorites on the list.
I don’t know about you if as a minimalist and someone who loves simple yet attractive nail designs, I can’t find better Valentine’s Day nail Ideas than these cute nails.
I love the combination of the soft pink gel and the hot pink color along with the mini reversed hearts.
The easiest way to recreate the mini hearts is by using a thin nail brush and your favorite hot pink nail color. I’ve personally tried creating them using a gel liner but it didn’t give me the same clear and in-point result as when I used a brush.
9. Orangy Valentine
For when you’ve had your fill of reds and pinks, why not spice up your nail love life with a hint of zesty orange?
It’s not a color combination we see often, but it works amazingly as it’s classy and attractive. It’s a little quirky and a lot gorgeous.
If you want to break the casual Valentine’s Day nail designs and get all the eyes on you.
These Orangy, pink swirls with the open heart won’t only make you special but will make everyone want to recreate them even if Valentine’s Day is over.
The secret of recreating this Valentine’s nails is choosing the perfect nail color shades.
The combination of the lights’ warm colors is beyond perfection, especially the orange color. I highly recommend using Essie nail polish in Set in Sandstone as it’s the one used along with O.P.I in Suzi Nails New Orleans.
10. Pink Butterflies
These nails are just darling. Three nails of warm glossy pinks are a match made in heaven with two endearingly adorable butterfly-filled nails.
I’d recommend this Valentine’s nail design to anyone who’s still in the honeymoon phase and feeling those fluttery butterflies somewhere other than their nails right now.
Also, they are perfect for a Galentine’s Day party where you can with your besties have the same nail design symbolled with the butterflies.
Recreating this nail design is super easy if you’re used to using acrylics. If not, all you need for the unpainted nails is a soft pink gel polish.
For the hot pink color, I love the O.P.I shorts Story color as it’s only pigmented but will give you the best nail color. For the butterflies, I recommend these high-quality butterflies nail stickers to use along with a top coat at the end to make your nail design last longer.
11. Red Valentine
Glamor and occasion to mind when I see this hand of lovely Valentine’s nail designs. They’re a little bit on the opulent and extravagant side with charming overtones, making these the ideal Valentine’s nails for the gal who’s ready to paint the town red this Valentine’s day.
We all love to upgrade our look and style, and it’s quite the same when it comes to your nail designs, especially for this special and romantic occasion.
Break the habit of the typical simple red Valentine’s Day nails with this glamor and expensive nail design.
The glittery little hearts and the double French tip lines make this nail design worth recreating.
The secret to having this Valentine’s nails done perfectly is to choose the perfect red nail color. O.P.I Big Apple Red is the perfect color for this nail design combined with a silver glittery gel liner.
12. You Have My Heart
Short, sweet, and to the point are all my characteristics when I choose a nail design to recreate for myself.
I’m obsessed with short nails and short nail designs and it’s so rare for me to decide going for longer nails unless I want to do Almond nails.
These Valentine’s Day nails are a timeless classic.
I’ve always loved red French tips as a unique twist on the traditional style, but the accent nail enhances the look even further for a look I’m definitely going to try myself this year.
I’ve recently created a similar nail design and if you want to have the perfect finish for Valentine’s nail design, I recommend getting a light soft pink gel if you want to use a light red color. However, for brunettes, we tend to love a darker shade of red like the O.P.I Red,
I recommend this AIMEILI in Clear Pink number 022.
13. Truly Valentine Nails
If someone painted Valentine’s Day across nails, I fully believe this is what they’d look like. Light pink and rich red stand in their own right before meeting to form adorable heart designs.
I truly can’t describe these Valentine’s nails better and the Almond nail shape makes us all in love with these nails.
For the mini hearts, I recommend using a thin nail art brush to have clean, perfect hearts without messing with your whole nail art.
14. Blue Valentine
It’s true. Not every Valentine’s nail design has to include reds and pinks; they can also feature ultra-chic, cool, and unique blue against an icy background for an almost futuristic appeal.
Get creative with where you place your little blue hearts and make this look your own.
If you’re the type that loves simple nail design and you always go for milky nails (just like me), upgrade your nail design for Valentine’s Day with the little blue heart touch.
But, they will give you the best result ever as the formula is amazing and the gel polishes aren’t so thick that it’s so hard to move or use.
15. Pink Side Tips
You don’t see slanted French tips often, but you should. This love-inspired Valentine’s nail design version calls on a bright, almost neon pink and orange combination for a cheerful yet colorfully casual-chic look.
The look of this Valentine’s Nail art is quite sharp and polished as well, meaning it can be worn well beyond Valentine’s Day.
This Valentine’s Day nail design can be recreated easily as you don’t need a lot of effort to recreate it if you’re not a nail artist.
All you need is a nail art brush and the nail polishes along with a soft pink base color for your nails.
Don’t forget to apply a top coat to have a glossy finish and make your nail design last longer.
16. Dear Valentine, You Have my Heart
Write love across your nails this Valentine’s Day with this set of charmingly cute Valentine’s Day nails that are perfect for date night and will leave no one in two minds about your heart’s true desires.
Interestingly, on closer inspection, you’ll notice that the French tip fades into the nail, adding an extra layer of softness and uniqueness to these stunning nails.
If you got obsessed with this Valentine’s nail design and you are so into recreating it, believe me, it’s so easy that you’ll probably do it yourself at home.
First, you’ll need these nail design tools and polishes to recreate it
After shaping your nails to your favorite nail shape (preferably, the almond nail shape to have this classy nail design) and doing all the nail preparations, start by applying a base coat of the soft pink gel polish and cure your nails for 60 seconds.
Use a nail sponge after applying the pink nail polish and start pupping it on the tips of your nails.
Then, cure your nails in your UV lamp. Use the same method to apply a bit of glittery touch to your nail tips and cure your nails again for 60 seconds.
To recreate the mini hearts, you’ll need the nail art thin brush and hot pink color and start creating your mini hearts randomly on your nail tips.
When you finish, apply a top coat and cure your nails for the last 60 seconds.
17. Negative Space Valentine Nails
These Valentine’s Day nails are hard not to love, but here’s the best part: Negative space nail designs are so on trend right now that these nails can be sported long after the day of celebration is over and even to the end (and beyond) of February.
The secret behind this Valentine’s Day nail design is choosing the perfect red nail color. We love the Sally Hansen in That’s A Blazing rich red color for this nail design with a glossy finish.
18. Double Frenchies Nails
This look, while still rare, has been catching on lately especially for Valentine’s Day, and I’m a huge fan.
I’ve always loved French tips in all their variations, and this is just them times two.
With a classic French tip on top, and a heart-shaped tip on the cuticle, these Valentine’s nail designs are entirely unique, fun, and perfect for trying at least once.
19. My Cute Valentine’s Nail Design
A little bit like Strawberries and cream for the nails, these adorable and oh-so-lovable Valentine’s Day nail designs are good enough to eat!

You don’t need a lot of time or effort to recreate this nail design.
You can use these heart nail stickers instead of painting them using a gel liner and apply a top coat to make your nail design last longer.

These heart nail designs are incredibly vibrant and eye-catching. They play effortlessly on the French tip comeback that’s gripping the beauty scene at the moment while paying homage to the 90s vibes that are also quite on-point at the moment.
Overall, I’d say this is one of the trendiest Valentine’s nail designs on the last, making it a must-try for a fashionista out there.
The layered heart design makes this Valentine’s nail design worth creating especially since it’s a combination of red and pink which makes it perfect for Galentine’s Day as well.

This time, it’s extra colorful, with both the base and tip of the nail is polished, and I have to admit – it works and the final result is outstanding.

The hot pink color and the red French tips make the perfect color combination that’s even better than my expectations.
I’d recommend these nail polishes for these February nail designs for Valentine’s Day.
Use the French tips patches to recreate perfectly the French tips as the patches are practical and finish easily.
22. Sparkle Valentine Nails
These semi-dipped nails are slightly dazzling, if not prepossessing. They’re ideal for those who want to dedicate a little extra time to their Valentine’s nails this year – your efforts will pay off, I promise.
If you’re into an elevated nail design and you want to create this complex Valentine’s nail design, you’ll need chrome pink gel polish, nail art brushes, and pink nail polish.
For these Valentine’s nails, as much as it looks complicated to create, it’s easy to do as it’s done randomly, especially for the swirls.
You don’t have to perfectly do the mixed and layered French tips, as its charm is in the messy style. This Valentine’s nail design is worth recreating this February.

How cute! This playful Valentine’s Day manicure is delightfully imaginative with its cutout heart that’s leaped from one nail to the other.
It leans to the more innocent and cutesy side when it comes to Valentine’s Day nail designs, which just makes me love it all the more.
If you want to have a unique Valentine’s Day nail design, choose a nail color that is uncommon to create in February, like Royal Blue nail color, or hot pink nail color.
Also, the nail shape adds a lot to the nail design as it’s what makes the nail design worth the hype or a big flop.
24. Pink Shades Strips

The result is a unique and fresh look that’s ready for the dance floor or just to be shown off on Instagram.

27. Neon Frenchies
I always find slanted, straight-line nail designs to be fascinating, if not downright intriguing. They’re a bold, daring look that always pays off, especially when paired with unapologetic neons.
If you want to create the exact same Valentine’s Day nail design, I recommend using nude pink acrylic powder instead of a soft nude pink gel color.
These French tips aren’t the usual the Frenches we’re used to. The V-Cut French tips look so cute and the little rhinestone flat crystals for the flowers make the whole nail design worth creating.
28. Classy Valentine Nails

There’s something a little whimsical to these Valentine’s Day-inspired nails, almost like they belong in a small, quaint English village.

I’ve always thought classic strawberries & cream nails should have a Valentine’s Day variation.
It looks like my (and now your) dream has come true! They’re not immediately recognizable as Valentine’s Day nails which means you can sport them well beyond the big day.
As swirl nail designs are the trend of this year, it’s not justifiable to recreate them this Valentine, but go out of the usual with the different pink shades rather than the red colors.

Have a heart that’s too big to fit onto a nail? Let it show with these dreamy, almost Avant-gUARD Valentine’s Day nails that you’re guaranteed no one else will have.
These Valentine’s nail designs give you a chance to show your creative side as you can paint the hearts wherever you see fit and as big or small as you’d like.

There’s an overtone of futuristic to these delightfully minimalistic nails. They’re sharp, refreshing, and polished, with just a hint of color to make them pop.
If you’re a lover of nude nails yet, you want to have Valentine’s Day-worthy nails, creating the reversed mini hearts is the perfect addition to switch from the typical everyday nail design to the romantic Valentine nails that are worth the hype.
38. Love is in the Air
For those of you who are floating about on cloud nine this Valentine’s Day, this is the retro-style, gorgeous Valentine’s nail design for you.

42. Simple Red Nails
I’m a firm believer that you don’t always need to go all-out when it comes to Valentine’s Day nails.
Sometimes, all you need are solid, monochrome red nails with a whisper of love hearts in the middle.
However, you can upgrade a simple Valentine’s nail design with a different color shape for one fingernail to break the casual look with mini hearts on the tip of the nail.
43. Be my Valentine

Creating these Valentine’s nail designs is super easy as you only need two different shapes of pink polishes and a nail art brush to create the dots.
