Whether you’ve got a romantic date in the works, a Galentine’s night out, or just fancy indulging in a self-love treat – Valentine’s is the perfect excuse to adorn your nails with pink hearts and glitter.
Booksy customers have fallen in love with Valentine’s nail art, and salons like Booksy ambassadors Alice McNails and Gels by Bry have been inundated with Valentine’s themed requests. From bold 3D hearts and high-shine chrome, to classic pink and red, these nails will have you feeling the love.
Booksy ambassador and social media superstar Alice McNails, who boasts over 56k followers on Instagram says: “As always, we’ll be seeing lots of red and pink, predominantly two types – either out there with big 3D heart nails, mega decorative or we’re going to see the clean girl aesthetic – minimal heart nails and gold hearts on the ring finger.”
“We’ll be seeing lots of milky tones, red and pink hearts on strawberry milkshake bases and white milky layers. Red and pink remain the perfect Valentine’s Day colour combo!”
“My clients are crushing on high shine chrome, hearts in cat-eye, embellished and crystal effects, and 3D gel clay which is a playdough consistency that can be used to make 3D cartoon-like structures.”
“For something different, I predict we’re going to see people embracing their inner Wednesday Addams with gothic nail elements, lots of black, red, and gold. Heart tips were huge in 2022 and my customers are still loving them into 2023.”
Booksy ambassador, nail artist extraordinaire and social media sensation Bryony Howell of Gels by Bry says: “This year’s Valentine’s nail trends will vary from subtle classy white French with heart accents to loud red and pink clashing designs.”
“Almost all of my clients are getting on board with the Valentine’s Day nails this year, it’s such a popular trending theme with never-ending cute designs!”
