Love is in the air! As Valentine’s Day quickly approaches, it’s time to start thinking about the romantic manicures and love-inspired nail art you can create for your clients. The quickest way into a client’s heart is through their nails, after all.

Check out these five romance-inspired nail looks that can be worn for Valentine’s Day — or any other day of the year when your clients are feeling romantic.

Bouquet for Days

There are many ways to create perfect rose nail art, but one surefire way is to pair a floral accent nail with four other perfectly polished nails. With a subtle touch of a romantic flower, this look is classic, delicate and not too floral. To make this manicure even more trendy, mix textures and finishes to craft a look that will stun your client’s special someone.

Don’t Make Me Blush

A blush manicure uses the perfect shades to set a romantic mood. Blush nail colors include powdery, muted shades of pale pink, peach or light coral. Soften the look by adding a matte top coat.

Keep It Sweet

Take your creativity to the next level by designing a nail look inspired by a box of chocolates — a romance staple. Use sensual hues of milk, dark and white chocolate for mouth-watering variety, then add foils, glitter, stickers and hand-painted nail art to complete the look.

Feel It in Your Heart

This Valentine’s Day, your clients can wear their hearts on their sleeves — or at least on their nails. Start with a soft shade, like a nude or a blush, and add tiny, hand-painted hearts to the moon of the nail. Alternatively, use heart-shaped foil to create this dainty and flirty look.

Feel the Love

Achieve a gorgeous, hand-painted heartbeat with only nail lacquer, a brush and acrylic paint. Use a bold shade as your base color and paint the lines using a complementary shade, finishing with a glossy topcoat. Your client — and their honey — will be feeling the love with this manicure.

Romantic manicures do not have to be complicated. With the right tools and love as the inspiration, you can create the perfect look for your client’s romantic night out. Your clients — and their partners — will love you for it.
