Before deciding which type of nails to have, what colors to choose, and which design to indulge in, read reviews on us-reviews and learn what other people say about the salons, nail polishes, and nail tools. After that, you can do what is best for you and your nails this Valentine’s Day!
Nail prep things to consider!
Before choosing what color or design to incorporate, read some personal care reviews or other online shopping reviews to consider aspects like nail size, shape, style, and setting.
Gel nails versus acrylic nails.
The main difference between choosing gel or acrylic Valentine’s Day nails is the type of product applied and how it is applied. Acrylic nails are made from a combination of powder polymer and liquid polymer. Alternatively, gel nails are made from a liquid resin mixture that is then cured under a LED or UV light. Although gel nails are a healthier option for one's natural nail bed, acrylic nails tend to last longer if applied correctly. Once one has decided which type of nails they want, the fun can start by personalizing acrylic Valentine’s Day nails or the gel version.
Different nail shapes
There are seven different nail shapes to choose from round nails, square nails, coffin nails, stiletto nails, oval nails, and squoval nails. In addition, there are very popular almond-shaped nails from the 90s. The longer the nail, the more difficult it is to maintain, so you should consider aspects such as daily jobs, house chores, and social activities to choose the best shape to suit your lifestyle.
Choose a popular Valentine’s Day nail art design!
Some popular shapes and patterns for Valentine’s Day include the polka dots, which one can achieve with dark dots on a light background or vice versa. The word love written across one's nail in a cursive font is often used. In addition, using a nail art tool to create a lip design or hearts is perfect for this day. Lastly, using two-tone colors and dividing the nail is a popular trend. Add metallic polish or a glitter stripe if you want something extra special. Nail artists are becoming increasingly creative, so consider a new design or image being put on your nails should you want something more unique.
Add that pop of color this Valentine’s Day!
The traditional color scheme of Valentine’s Day is red, pink, and white. However, lilac and mauve are expected to be popular this year. In addition, a neutral color palette with a pop of red or pink is expected to be seen. Finally, ensure you have cute Valentine’s nails, whether traditional red Valentine’s Day nails, pink Valentine’s Day nails, or an alternative.
If you are not feeling the love this Valentine’s Day, reflect this hate on your nails with some interesting design choices and colors. Anti-Valentine's Day nails can include darker colors like browns and blacks. The symbols used are typically black hearts or broken hearts. Perhaps your relationship has ended, and you are not looking forward to celebrating this Valentine’s Day; then why not try out these trends for a day; next year, you can always do the opposite and go all out with hot Valentine’s Day nail designs again.
Some Valentine’s Day gifts besides nails!
If you want to spoil your partner with Valentine’s Day gifts that are not nail related, consider the range of gift boxes available at Brook & York. In addition, you can purchase a sex toy from Bestvibe for a special occasion. Alternatively, if one is looking for a one-stop shop for lingerie, then Xoo Kool might have what you are looking for. If you want to move away from a physical gift, surprise your partner with a night out enjoying Valentine’s Day restaurants and their special meals or with a unique bouquet of Valentine’s Day flowers for your favorite lady.
Whether purchasing a gift, having your nails done, cooking a meal, or decorating a room, Valentine’s Day provides an opportunity to go all out and celebrate love.
