One of the most classic looks for Valentines Day is these heart-shaped tips that are just so flirty and fun. If you want red Valentines Day nails but want some variety, this could be the perfect option for you.
Mix & Match
Moving on to more varied possibilities, we find a variety of styles with these nails. You can get away with doing something different on each nail if you stick to a color theme as this person has.
Red, White, & Black
Here’s another scheme that finds variety with the addition of black and white. The little hearts look like ornaments on the ring finger. This person has shown some restraint and we think that really served this person well.
Lean into that inner goth and go black and red, black widow-style. Red and black is one of the finest color combinations. Our brain reads the colors together as dangerous, intriguing, and mysterious. Just what you might want in your red Valentines Day nails.
Just a Kiss of Pink
Here, this person has gone with a fruity red that looks fun and fresh. We like the one nail with the swoopy heart and gem. It’s a sweet little detail that’s understated and sophisticated.
These nails look like they’ve got white chocolate drizzled over them! Turn to a box of chocolates for inspiration, and you could walk away with something equally as tasty.
The Perfect Balance
Shiny red meets a pale blush for a winning look that strikes balance and looks very put together. We dig the metallic stripe and hope you feel the same way about it.
The claws are coming out this Valentines Day, honey. We find stiletto nails here with a different style on each nail. Which one is your favorite? We like the little hearts and the totally bejeweled nail.
Delicate Floral Love
For your red Valentines Day nails you can tame the bold color by employing it for the details. Take a look at that floral detail that looks like cherry blossoms but instead of flowers we’re treated to tiny little hearts. What a bright idea!
A Dainty Detail
We’re sticking with the little details that make a difference. How sweet is the lone heart nail next to those gorgeous red nails?

These red Valentines Day nails are all about the flash. If you’ve got some leftover red glitter from Christmas, you know what to do.
