Valentine's Day nail sets and press-ons
Perfect for DIY nail painters who love a shiny gel manicure, this burgundy semi-cured gel set is easy to apply and even lovelier to look at. Arrange your nail designs however you like on each hand, with a choice between sparkly and glossy reds, as well as heart shapes and plaid prints. Just make sure you have a UV lamp to fully cure each nail.
If these nails don’t scream “I love you!,” we honestly don’t know what will. Get your fingertips in the Valentine’s Day spirit with this colorful bestselling set. For only $17, you can customize your own look according to your nail size and selected shape.
For a sultrier look, pop on Static Nail’s burgundy Thorns and Roses collection. Not only will you stand out with a gorgeous matte finish, but you’re also getting salon-quality color that actually lasts. And 94 percent of reviewers actually prefer these fake manicures over the work (and expense!) of a professional.
Some wear their hearts on their sleeves, while others prefer their nails. Tell your significant other how you feel with this lovely press-on, non-damaging manicure set from Lilium. Add a little glue for weeks of wear, or use adhesive tabs for multiple uses!
Loves comes in all shapes, sizes and colors — and so can your nails! ManiMe goes the extra mile with this design, packing in multiple colors, semi-sheer opacity, a glitter finish and celestial shapes in one collection. Plus, you can’t beat the zero dry time!
Break hearts, not nails. That’s why we’re sticking with Beauty Bay’s Kiss Me at-home manicure, a set of 24 durable ruby red falsies that are shaped to slenderize fingers and designed to catch your loved one’s eye.
Valentine's Day nail polish
Dress up your fingers in this bright cherry lacquer, one of Static Nails’ richest, shiniest and most daring colors. The pigment is fierce, while the polish ingredients (peppermint, primrose and marula oil) work to improve nail health and hydration. Pair with Static Nails’ primer and topcoat and you’ll have a manicure that wearers swear lasts three times longer than other brands.
Inspired by the red curtains found at the Marni store in the most romantic city on earth (Paris), this polish duo is perfect for a night of amour. We suggest following one of Paintbox’s minimalist nail design examples for an added touch of glamour.
Careful, you might just fall in love with this four-polish bundle. Show your feelings loud and clear with a colorful mix of plum merlot, shimmery coral, bubble gum pink and bright magenta shades. This Ariel Versace collection is not only stunning, but also vegan and cruelty-free.
On Valentine’s Day, you deserve to be treated like a princess, so make sure you’re accepting your flower bouquets and boxes of chocolates with hands bathed in glitter! Rossi’s glam powder is lightweight and long-lasting without the use of any UV or LED lamps. Just dip and go!
There’s nothing wrong with showering yourself with a little love and self-care. What better way to do that than giving yourself a peachy-pink manicure? All you need to complete your look are two coats of International Hot Girl professional-grade nail lacquer, and then you’ll be ready for your February 14th plans — no matter if they include a five-star dinner for two or a wine night on the couch!
