Are you in love? Show it on your nails! Valentine’s Day is all about hearts and kisses, and the perfect way to keep the love celebration going is to decorate your nails! Smooch your Valentine with a Creative kissy nail art.

Kissy Nail Art

Kisses, smooches, and love are the core motif of this design. From lips, to heart shapes, and even a bow – there are no shortage of ideas when creating your own kissy nail art! Use nail polishes and accessories such as dots, jewels, and even rhinestones to bring your design to life.

Kissy nail art can help you express your love for your nails. Not only is it fun and easy to do, but it looks amazing, too! Start by painting two coats of a metallic pink or red polish on your index and middle fingers. If a third coat is needed, let each coat dry fully before applying the next.

Negative Space Lip Art

Negative space art looks amazing and is not as difficult as it may sound. You’ll want to start by painting two coats of white nail polish on your thumb, ring and pinky fingers. Once the base colour is dry, use a small brush to paint an outline and fill in the colour on the nail in the shape of lips.

Make sure to use a steady hand and take your time to ensure each colour line is as neat and even as possible. Once you’ve completed the lip shape, use a small dotting tool or toothpick to create little dots at the edges of the lips. Finish up your design by painting over the whole nail with a clear polish or topcoat.

Kissy Rhinestone&Jewel Art

Love rhinestones and jewellery? Why not combine them with some sweet kissy nail art? Start by painting your nails with two coats of a bright pink or red polish and letting it dry completely. Then, use a topcoat to make the nails extra glossy. Use a tweezer to carefully place some rhinestones onto the nails – go for hearts, stars and lips!

To add a unique touch, use a dotting tool or brush to add tiny jewels on top of the rhinestones. Add as many or as few as you like, and finish off with a clear topcoat to seal in the sparkles and keep your nails looking fabulous!
