GET YOUR NAILS VALENTINE'S DAY READY
IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE
Nails by @thenaillionaire
Using UNITY Gel Polish: 169 Valentine
Wear your heart on your sleeve nails this Valentine’s Day with a beautiful classic red shade. After all, Valentine’s Day would not be Valentine’s Day without a red nail set paired with hearts.
LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK

Using Rhinestone Gel Polish: R2 Gold Bar
However, Valentine’s Day nail doesn’t always mean hearts and pink nails. As a famous Khaleesi and Khal once said to each other You are the moon of my life… You are my sun and stars; we feel that these nails embody their everlasting love. Plus, the sparkles make everything more special.
LOVE LIKE WINE GETS BETTER WITH TIME

2021 and we are wearing daisies instead of picking petals off of them. We just love how dainty and cute these nails are!
I BURN FOR YOU
Nails by @egobeauty.ca
Using UNITY Gel Polish: 211 Sweet Tart and 3STEP Gel Polish: 20 Honey Bee and 14 Tangy
In the words of one of our favourite queens, these nails are “Flawless, my dear” (Queen Charlotte, Bridgerton, 2021)
PUT A RING ON IT

Diamonds are our best friends, but Swarovski crystals work too. Elevate your Valentine’s nail look with some jewels.
MAKE HEARTS FLUTTER
Nails by @mayleidoesnails
Using 3STEP Gel Polish: 84 Hydrangea and 94 Fate
Capture that sweet feeling of butterflies filling and fluttering in your stomach with butterfly decals on your nails. We also love the two colours look, why have only one when you can have two?
SWIRLY IN LOVE
Nails by @ricekittynails
Using UNITY Gel Polish: 169 Valentine, 211 Sweet Tart and 3STEP Gel Polish: 1018 Cashmere
The love for swirl nails is real, why not try a Valentine’s Day take on it and pair shades of reds and pinks with nudes? Diana (@ricekittynails) demonstrates in a video below how you can recreate this look.
No matter which nail look you are wearing this Valentine’s Day (if you are planning too) or whose love you are choosing to celebrate, we hope you set aside time to show love to yourself because you deserve it. With that said, let us know in the comments below how will you show love towards yourself this month? What look will you be wearing this month (Valentine’s Day themed or not)? We’d love to know!

I’m going to take some time for myself and rest and try to reduce my screen time! I recently purchased BSG Hydrangea so I am currently wearing that right now :)
I’m going to take some time to just relax with a glass of wine, do my nails (soft pink for Valentine’s Day! Yay!) , while listening to a chill playlist! And maybe try and make this monthly routine :)
Red nails for sure this Valentine’s Day!! ❤️✨ I will be having a little staycation with my husband. A at home tea party for 2, getting outside for walks and lots of relaxing self care! 🥰
I had just purchased a BSG brush for nail art so I’ll try to play around and test it out!
I am new nail tech and I love BSG. I will be wearing BSG marshmallow. I love a good French manicure so I will be using red hot for my smile line ❣️
I am going to show myself some self love by trying to exercise. That’s usually the first thing neglected for me when things get busy or I feel down. So I am going to try and show my body some love this month 💕💕
My Valentine’s Day gift to myself was 3 pretty polishes from the VDay sale. I can’t wait to get them and relax pour myself a glass of wine and have fun painting my nails!
I’ll be loving myself by making a large cup of boba in a matcha latte! I’ll also be baking some macarons as a form of therapy. Then I’ll be ending the night writing down what I am grateful for, as well as what I can give myself credit for.
For my nails, I’m currently working on a look similar to the Gel Love Swirl. I was inspired by iluvsarahii’s nude swirl and your new tutorial came just in time!!!
I’m setting aside a little bit of time for self-care everyday, and staying off screens when winding down for the night. And this month I made an impulse decision to go with classic red nails for Valentine’s! I usually choose neutrals for nails but I decided to switch it up this time and loving it!
I show myself love by making time for self care and maybe some nice dark chocolates too.
I haven’t decided which mani I will be wearing yet. Might be rose gold as it is one of my favorites or sweater weather as I’ve been itching to use it.
I show myself love by actually taking the time to take care of myself, workout and be active. It helps me mentally when I take that time. As for showing my nails love I’m not huge on holiday themes for myself so I’ll probably play with swirly nails or dark floral nails. Not ready for spring yet. Still unable to accept clients so my nails are the only nail fun I get right now :)
I’ll be showing love to myself by taking it easy and not being so hard on myself. It’s important to remember that you have to love yourself too and it’s okay to take the time away from others. I’m definitely planning on picking up BSG Buttercup to wear this month!
I will be sure to not overwork myself, respecting boundaries between a work and life balance. I’m loving the I burn for you colours, luckily I just got a shipment today for my light pink colours right in time for Valentine’s Day!
Taking many long snowy nature hikes with the puppy! Will be wearing BSG Sugar :)
