Since flowers are a huge part of this holiday, it can also be a sweet tribute to the many your partner will be showering you with on V-Day, or a subtle hint to get you a bunch of them!

#5 The next red Valentine’s Day nails show how you can complement matte and gloss overcoats in a single nail design.

#7 These Valentine’s nails are done on a nude base with each nail showing an artistic nature of its own. One is bedecked in studs, while two are done in a curved tip covered in polka dot patterns, and the last one is done in a heart for an alluring effect.
#8 When you don’t want to include any motifs in your Valentine’s Day nails 2023, take inspiration from this creative manicure done in a pastel palette. Each nail has two hues and is divided by open space to let the colors pop on their own and not mix too much into each other giving a rougher look.
