Valentine’s Nails: Stripes + Dots

February is just flying by isn’t it? In a few days it will be Valentine’s Day so I thought this would be the perfect time to whip out my nail art polish and relieve it from its short vacation.

Valentine's Nails Stripes + Dots


This design is relatively easy and will just take a little more time than your regular one-color manicure.

Valentine's Nail color
Heres what you’ll need: 2 contrasting nail colors (I picked red and white) and maybe a nail art pen or polish with afine tipped brush. If you don’t have one of these, you can use a fine brush that you can get from a beauty or art store.

If you want to try this look, the steps are really easy.

Paint the entire nail in white and when that is dry, paint a diagonal half in red. I did this freehand but for extra precision, you can use a piece of tape to stencil the shape.

With your nail art brush in white, paint vertical stripes or random spots/hearts in the red section (or you could reverse it by painting red stripes/dots in the white section).

Lastly, paint a layer of topcoat and you’re done!
