Nail Polish Ideas for Valentine's Day

Valentine's day is nearly upon us! When I think of Valentine's day I think of Love and the colors red and pink. I thought I would share with you some polishes from my collection that I think would be great for valentines day. I also threw in three non-traditional Valentine's nail looks too!

I found 10 polishes in my collection that I thought would be great for Valentine's Day, below are the swatches. I tried so hard to get the true color of the polish, but my camera absolutely hates the color red for some reason :/

In this first set of swatches on the far left we have China Glaze Go Crazy Red which is a beautiful metallic red. In the middle, NYC Murray Hill Mauve, which is my favorite mauve color polish, I think this is great if you don't really like bright red or pink nails. On the far right we have Forget Now from Sinful Colors. This is a hot pink, for the most part sheer polish, but you can build the color.
On the left we have Sally Hansen Xtreme wear in Cherry Red, a red cream. Next to that we have Pure Ice Gossip, which is more on the pink side than this picture shows. It is a cream polish as well. Next we have Watermelon Ice from Pure Ice, this is another sheer polish that is very buildable. In the swatch I used three coats. On the far right we have one of the truest red polishes that I own, Siren from Pure Ice. It is another cream polish.
In the last set of swatches on the left we have Gift Wrapped from Julie G. This polish is so beautiful, but my camera refused to let it's true color come through. It's a deep fuchsia/magenta color with some glitter in it. Next we have Candy-licious from Wet n Wild, it's a fun bubble gum pink cream polish. Last but not least we have I Red a Good Book, also from Wet n Wild, it is a beautiful deep red cream polish. A lot deeper than the swatch shows.

I also wanted to add a few nail ideas that are not so traditional but would still look great for Valentine's day.

I LOVE all three of these nail looks! First up is Sinful Colors Forget Now over a black Cream polish. In the middle is Sinful Colors Shirley & Buddy over black. Shirley & Buddy is a very sheer pink polish with little blue flecks of glitter, that I think the black really helps bring out. This last one is probably my most favorite nail look from this post, it's Material Girl from Pure Ice, which is just a glitter polish with little pink glitters and bigger diamond shaped glitter, over a cream black. It's edgy yet still Valentine's like.

I worked very hard on this post :) I hope that you like it and maybe even found a nail look for Valentine's Day!

  3. NYC Murray Hill Mauve looks so pretty! I love that last color Material Girl from Pure Ice although I have no idea where I would find that in Canada. Purple is my favorite color so I love that you included it for Valentine's Day nails.

    1. Material Girl is from the Runway Collection. I know they sale Pure Ice at Walmart and Walgreens. You might luck up and find it there.
