1. Baby Pink Nails with a Pop of Glitter

We don’t really know why the heart is a symbol of love, or where it came from, but it’s believed to have come from around the Middle Ages. It wasn’t until the sixteenth century that we started to use it as we do now. And we think hearts are perfect for pretty nail art designs for Valentine’s Day.

2. Red, Pink & Gold Hearts

St. Valentine’s Day was officially marked as St. Valentine’s Day in 1537 by King Henry VII. We bet he didn’t have pretty nail art designs for Valentine’s Day to celebrate the occasion though!

3. Red & Gold Design

Nail polish was first thought to have originated in around 3,000BC in China. Back then, vegetable dyes were mixed with other things such as gelatin, eggs whites, and beeswax, and the brighter the shade meant the higher the class of person. Red nails were the hardest to achieve, and that’s what made them popular. They’re literally a sign of high society.

8. Cute Ombre Design

Ombre designs are very easy to do once you’ve learned how to use a makeup sponge and your nail polish to blend it all together. We love the way that the ombre shading has been used as a backdrop to these pretty nail art designs for Valentine’s Day, and that hand-written love just completes the look quite nicely.

9. Silver Hearts

Men spend twice as much as women do around Valentine’s Day, apparently, and the average amount spent by our fella’s on the big day is between $120-$150. If you ask us, that’s not enough, but these pretty nail art designs for Valentine’s Day make up for it … just.

10. White & Silver Design with Rhinestones

Although men may spend more than women on Valentine’s Day gifts, women buy more V-Day cards than men do. In fact, more men have a tendency to forget, with only 15% of men reportedly buying their loved one a card. It’s a good job we’ve got hearts on our nails, right girls?
