Soooo, what do you and your sweet pie have planned for Valentine’s Day this year? Whether it’s dinner at a favorite restaurant, a romantic dinner at home or your partner has a surprise up their sleeve (which is our personal favorite option!), we’re pretty sure that you want to look your best.
When it comes to getting ready for this kind of holiday, 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 (for when your nail designs are complete), a steady hand and a lot of patience. (So yeah, if you don’t paint your own nails much, you should probably do some experimenting around a week before.)
Come to think of it, you might want to call a girlfriend over so that you can do each other’s nails. But 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.
Oh, and 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, then 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 in front of a portable fan).
Basically, the amount of time that it takes to watch a 30-minute sitcom (maybe a 60-minute show if you’re doing your nails yourself) is what you’ll need in order to get the best results.
