If you're a minimalist, you might switch up your usual neutral nail colour for a pink or a red hue or maybe some minimal heart nail art. Alternatively, if you're more of a nail art maximalist, there are tons of bright and fun Valentine's Day nail ideas to try.

And Valentine's Day nails don't necessarily need to be obvious in pink, red or bedazzled in hearts. Why not try a a classic red French tip or perhaps a rose-quartz nail design?
