When it comes to getting ready for the romance that comes with Valentine’s Day, it’s all in the details. If you’ve got a few extra bucks, treat yourself to a mani-pedi. If not, no worries. We have some tips for how to make your nails picture perfect no matter what.
All you need is some nail polish, a few nail design tools, an awesome top coat, a steady hand, and a lot of patience. If you don’t paint your own nails much, try some experimenting a week before. This way, you’re nails will look awesome for Valentine’s Day after a practice round!
You could even phone a friend to help each other out with the designs! Whether you decide to do your nails yourself or get a little help from a bestie, we’re confident that you’ll totally fall in love with the end results of our little tutorial.
For the best results, make sure to apply a base coat first. Then apply two coats of color. Let your nails dry for a few minutes before drawing/writing on them. Additionally, let your nails dry five more minutes before applying a top coat. Finally, give your nails another 15-20 minutes in order to dry completely (preferably with a nail dryer).
Basically, the amount of time that it takes to watch a 30-minute sitcom. Or, maybe a 60-minute show if you’re doing your nails yourself, is what you’ll need in order to get the best results for these Valentine’s day nail looks!
