Step 1: Apply the nail vinyl.

Step 2: Paint the red polish on the areas above the nail vinyl. I do a thicker coat of polish to try to make it opaque as possible. You have to work quickly with nail vinyls. You must peel away the nail vinyl before it dries.

Step 3: Once the nail vinyl has been pulled away, it should reveal a clean line of polish. The line doesn’t need to be perfect since we are going to cover it with flowers. You have the option to protect this layer of polish with a coat of top coat. The top coat with protect the bottom layers in case there are any mistakes with the acrylic paints that are going on top.

I chose three different colors of acrylic paints: pink, lavender, and a hot pink. I want to alternate the pink and purple flowers, so i painted these designs with that in mind. Dip a thin nail art brush into the acrylic paint. Paint on the petals with short brush strokes .

Step 4-5: Paint on the pink flowers first. Next, draw on some purple flowers in the spaces in between the pink flowers.

Step 6: FInally, add a hot pink flower in the center.

Step 7: Using a light brown acrylic paint, add centers to the flowers.

Finish this look off with a coat of glossy top coat!

The second look we have is a more traditional Valentine’s Day design.

Step 2: I used chevron nail vinyls from What’s Up Nails to .create the zig zag design. Make sure to push them down along the edges to ensure polish won’t go in the tiny spaces.

Step 3: Using the silver metallic polish, paint over the nail vinyls. As soon as the polish has been applied, peel off the nail vinyls. Since we secured the layer of polish with glossy top coat in the first step, you can lightly clean up any mistakes of the vinyl. Tip: Dip a clean up brush into acetone and very lightly remove any mistakes. Be careful to not push too hard, as it will remove the bottom layer as well.

Step 4: Using a dotting tool, dip into the hot pink polish and place two dots close together.

Step 5: Use the nail art brush to complete the shape of the heart.

Simply seal with a layer of glossy top coat.


If you like these designs then be sure to incorporate them into your Valentine’s Day ootd. Also, don’t forget to take the day to cherish all the loved ones in your life, not just romantic ones.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! .

So pretty, I never succeed making nail art. They always ended up in failure.

I absolutely love these and they’d be great for Mother’s Day too (which is March here in the UK). I will share with my friends as they are much better at doing them than me,

I think these are very cute. I’m not an artsy person so I get mine done. My co worker is good with doing her own. I will show her these!

I am not much of an artist so my nails never look as polished and as perfect as your gorgeous nail art lookbooks. Out of the two however I definitely would use the first one as I like the overlapping flowers and the contrast between the red and the natural coat.

The flower design looks SO good and it’s great for spring too. I think I might have an easier time with that than the chevron design, because my OCD brain would want everything to line up perfectly lol!

Bobbi

These are both really pretty nail designs. I would love to have my nails done like this even if it wasn’t Valentine’s Day.

I have always liked to see grey and pink together, and I love a little silver added in. This looks like a fun design for any occasion.
