Manicure Monday: Valentine's Day Nail Art

Guest Post by Katie Crafts

Four-Leaf Clover Nail Art

Hi loves! I’m Katie from Katie Crafts and I’m super excited to be writing Aquariann's Manicure Monday guest post today! Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. My outfit is already picked out (gray sweater dress with white hearts on it, red tights, red belt) but I still need a manicure. I tested out this design over the weekend and I think it may be the winner. It’s super cute and pretty easy!

To complete the look, you’ll need the following things:

♥ Red nail polish
♥ Pink nail polish
♥ Pink glitter polish
♥ White nail polish
♥ Clear top coat
♥ Nail art pen in blue or black

The design itself is mega simple!

♥ First, paint all your nails red, except your ring fingers which you’ll paint pink.
♥ Once they are 110% dry, use the white polish to make little hearts on the red nails and let dry.
♥ Use your nail art pen to draw X's and O's on your pointer and middle fingers. Draw "lo" and "ve" in cursive on your thumbs, so that when you put them together they spell "love"!
♥ On the pink nails, use a generous coat of your pink glitter polish to make your accent nail really pop.
♥ Seal each nail with a clear top coat and you’re good to go!

Enjoy a fabulous day with your Valentine! (and HAPPY BIRTHDAY WEEK, KRISTIN!)

  1. Pretty and festive. I like the way "Love" appears when the fingers are put together.

  2. Love the "love" spelled out Katie. So sweet! What nail art pens did you use?

  3. I love Katie's nails, especially the XOXO and the double nail LOVE. I've been trying to find good nail art pens. Any suggestions?

    1. duhh....I just read the "Sally Hansen" reply above. (oops!)

  4. How fun! I may get some help from my daughter and do this!
