It seems that the Christmas holidays were just a few days ago. We’re still not over the glitter euphoria, but it’s officially time to get ready for another fun holiday. Being only weeks away, Valentine’s Day is an excuse for all of us to get dressed up and look our best. Put on an elegant dress or a pair of jeans, but pay attention to your nails as well. Romantic Valentine’s Day nail art is already trending on every social media platform. You must’ve seen an array of cute designs so far, overwhelming your Instagram feed.
So no matter what way you’re going to celebrate this day, make sure to get a statement manicure. Some will have a romantic night out with bae, while others plan a cocktail party with friends. Either way, you’ve got a chance to pull off a mani that matches the holiday. Hearts are the top pattern you will see everywhere during February. So why not put them on your nails? For a minimalist look, just add a tiny heart on several of your nails. But if you are a lady who loves full-blown nail art, give yourself the courtesy to rock hearts in all sizes and hues.
But this doesn’t mean that cute hearts are a must when you do Valentine’s nails. To keep things simple, just avoid any patterns and choose a soft, gentle color that celebrates the most romantic day of the year.
Red is always the color to turn to in February. Even a simple red manicure will do the job. But since this is the ideal time to include cute patterns in your nail art, make sure to get the most out of this holiday. For those who are not huge fans of the signature Valentine’s color, here comes pink to save the day. Even glitter is welcome on days like this. Whatever hue you opt for, make sure is not boring. The sole purpose of holidays like this is to give you the chance to try things that you normally wouldn’t in your everyday life.
We rounded up the cutest Valentine’s day nail art you can flaunt for the upcoming month of love. Even if you don’t have a romantic date planned, a fierce manicure will have everyone’s eyes on you. Fun shades of pink and red are the unwritten rule to follow when glamming up your nails for the most romantic time of the year.

You have probably seen those neutral grayish marble nails when scrolling on Pinterest or Instagram. Well, it turns out that marble nails are much more than one uniformed nail design. You don’t have to do any research because we did it all for you. We are on a mission to prove you that marble nails are one of the most versatile nail design you could get. So we turned the internet upside down and gathered 25 of the most stunning marble nails designs that you might want to consider.
First things first, decide on the finish: matte, glossy, or metallic. Then, decide if you want to go all the way marble or with just do a few nails. You can opt for neutral all-marble nail design if you need something that won’t be too distracting. That’s one of the main reasons why we love marble nails so much – you can get both neutral or attention-grabbing nail design. You can pair marble nails with nude nail polishes to keep things classy and sophisticated. For an effect of surprise go for a color that isn’t that usual for marble. Vibrant colors are a great choice if you want to step out of your comfort zone. Don’t be afraid to try shades of purple, green, turquoise and so on.
Besides the regular marble design, you could ask your nail lady to get creative and take things in an abstract direction. You can achieve this effect by mixing colors or with metallic flakes. Another option is to add glitter to your marble manicure. Your nail lady needs to add glitter first, and then create the marble design on the top. This is a small but very chic detail that will instantly elevate a simple marble nail design.
If you are a nail maniac who likes dramatic nail designs, marble nails will satisfy your cravings for nail glam. Since the marble graphic is subtle by itself, you can level up on glam with 3D embellishments such as dazzling rhinestones. The marble base looks as good as a plain base. If you prefer smaller details go with gold or silver lines over the marble nail design.
One graphic- endless options. Marble nails are the nail design that is never boring. From soft manicures to bold sparky nail designs, marble nails are as versatile as the good old french manicure.

Trends, trends, trends – we can’t get enough of them. Whether is a brand new idea or a comeback from the past decades, fashion obsessives know that the urge to follow the latest trends is a fun thing to do. Of course, you shouldn’t lose yourself in the sea of trends. But the cuticle tattoos that took over Instagram lately can only do good to your style. So, we don’t have had a single argument against these cute little tattoos. This video has 7 of the cutest cuticle tattoos out there that might convince you to test drive this trend.
One of the reasons why we fell for this trend is because everyone can rock it. Rihanna is the queen of bold trends that not many would dare to try. But even the Barbadian singer and style icon is addicted to cuticle tattoos. She was one of the first who sparked this possibly painful trend. We are going to be completely honest, if you want your cuticle tattoos to stay forever, you might experience some pain. Anyway, if you just want to temporary upgrade your manicure, you can get cuticle tattoo nail art stickers. So, you don’t have to be Rihanna to pull this trend off.
As you can see in the video, you don’t have to go with a tattoo on every finger. For a toned-down effect, you can only tattoo one or few fingers. You can also take things in another direction and flaunt something unique and innovative. We love the Saturn-inspired cuticle tattoo seen in the video. This person drew Saturn and six tiny dots on her cuticles. The final result is insanely Instagrammable.
If you are into geometric shapes, you can flaunt the open triangle cuticle tattoos that look super sharp. Pair them with manicures in the similar aesthetic for even bolder effect.
Since we are only days away from the official holiday season a gold cuticle tattoo is what you need to round up your festive looks. In the video, we have the adorable gold bow tattoos paired with red nail polish. Red is the ultimate festive color, so feel free to copy this entire combo right away. Consider this is a last-minute holiday mani that you can do at home. No need to see your nail lady, just stick cuticle tattoo stickers and paint your nails in red.
Whether you want to keep it forever or just give it a try, the cuticle nail trend will for sure upgrade the way you take photos of yourself. Admit it – you would show it off on every Instagram snap.
When in doubt, add some texture! Honestly, there are so many reasons to get a textured mani. First of all, you get to constantly touch and endlessly play with the texture on your nails. It’s addictive so don’t tell us that we didn’t warn you. So, let’s talk a bit about your options when it comes to textured nail art.
We are officially in the #babyitscoldoutside season, so make sweater nails your priority. The term explains everything. Besides sweater to keep you warm in this cold weather, you also need sweater nails to match your actual sweaters. This nail technique includes delicately applied gel in a cable pattern shape. If you want to be extra, take your favorite sweater at your nail lady and ask her to dress your nails in the same sweaters. After all, nails deserve a decent sweater in this cold weather. You know the drill from now on – a snap from your matching sweater and nails is a must for Instagram. You can combine this technique with different motifs. Since the holidays are approaching a holiday or winter-inspired nail art would be perfect for this time of the year.
Another option to add texture to your manicure is 3-D nail decorations. Everything from small stones to caviar manicure will add dimension to your nails. If you are a glamorous chic, a nail art that features rhinestone embellishments would be your favorite. There are so many options that is hard to make up your mind on one. You can combine these decorative elements with other nail techniques, spice up a simple mani with them or go full glam and cover your nails with dazzling stones.
For those who think outside of the box, a snakeskin textured manicure might be the best option. The colors don’t necessarily need to match, but the texture has to. Your nail lady needs to shape the gel in a way that will look like snake’s skin. To put all the accent on the texture cover your nails in one color. A shiny black snakeskin mani is bold gals’ favorite. Bonus tip: a stiletto nail shape is the best option for snakeskin textured mani.
You can also add texture to your nails with chunky glitter or regular glitter if you prefer a smoother effect. Glitter is a holiday staple, so now is the right time to flaunt glitter textured nail design.
