Valentine's Day Trends in Nail Colors and Shapes

Trends in Nail Colors and Shapes


Valentine's Day doesn't have to be all about pink and red.

We've gone in search of fun Valentine's day nail looks. Some of these you can do yourself.

While most of us aren't wearing this look (no judgement-if this is your look- go for it!) it's definitely eye-catching!

Pastels are popular all year round in 2021. Nail lengths are trending from short to very long -- Ballerina or Stiletto anyone? Square shapes are seen less with natural curved edges becoming more popular again.

The almond shaped nail is back in style. It's a shape that is classic and beautiful for women of all ages.

Pastel nail colors are a good choice any time of year. They don't show the chips as much as dark colors. Nail lengths are trending from short to very long with tapered squares and ballerina (sometimes referred to as coffin) tips.

Square shaped nails are being seen less with natural curved edges becoming  the desired look.

Here's a great guide to nail shapes and what they're called if you want to tell your manicurist the shape you like.

How is the strength of your nails?

Many of us have weak, split nails for all the hand washing and sanitizer. If you're looking to grow longer, stronger nails, read our many reviews on Nail Fitness. It's the best nail strengthener/hardener you'll find. 


Check out this short video on how to create a heart design on your own nails. It's super easy. You can make your heart design in any color polish you have on hand and even multiple colors. Be sure to file your nails in a almond shape first, before painting.

What do you think? Would you do this yourself?
