Add romance to every inch of your body and complete your Valentine’s Day look with a great nail color. While your hot date may only last one night, a pretty nail color can help revitalize the look of your hands and keep you feeling pretty throughout the rest of the week. Here are some of our top picks for Valentine’s Day nail polish, from Deborah Lippman and butter LONDON:
1. Pink. Pink is the universal color of love and can help induce feelings of amour, acceptance, caring, tenderness, friendship and, most importantly for Valentine’s Day, romance. For a sheer, flirty color, try “Dream a Little Dream of Me” by Deborah Lippman. This nail color is a mix of sweet pink frosting and the glimmering of pearls. For something a little darker, go for “Dahling” nail lacquer by butter LONDON – it’s a dusty rose color that’s feminine and perfect for any skin tone.
2. Red. Show your extroverted side with red nail polish. Red symbolizes desire, warmth and a passionate heart. Merely looking at this color increases the pitter-patter of hearts. For a polish that says, “Come hither,” try the deep mulberry red “Bitches Brew” polish by Deborah Lippman. If you want a more classic red color, opt for the irresistible “My Old Flame.”
3. Glitter. What girl doesn’t like sparkles on Valentine’s Day? Wear glitter polish over your favorite red or pink lacquer on Valentine’s Day to match the twinkle in your eye. For a seductive combination, wear “Tart with a Heart” nail lacquer by butter LONDON over the dark pink “Stop and Stare” polish by Deborah Lipmann. Top any red polish with the crushed glitter in butter LONDON’s “Chancer” nail lacquer. If you want subtle color and an elegant twinkle, try butter LONDON’s “Pink Ribbon” topped with “The Old Bill”.
Beautiful nails don’t have to be complicated, especially when you have other things to worry about on Valentine’s Day. Paint your nails the night before so you’re not in a rush to get them done at the last minute.

Dotted Nails. Whip out your dot-making manicure tool (a toothpick also works) to make a fun Mardi Gars-inspired dotted design on your nails. For example, paint your nails all black.
