Showing your love for nail art (or hey, Valentine’s Day for that matter) can’t be taken more literally than with manicures decked out with heart decoration and details. This easy-to-draw classic shape is almost impossible to mess up, especially when you have a tiny paintbrush handy. The heart can not only be layered with other symbols and patterns for a dramatic and graphic look, but it can also be the dainty accent to a simple single color or clear coat manicure. When we glanced at our Instagram feed, it was clear that the heart was getting a lot of love.
For even more V-Day inspiration, or maybe just your next ultra girly girl mani, check out some of our favorite heart-inspired nail art looks from this week’s #NailCall. Be sure to upload your own nail design ideas to Instagram, tag us @BeautyHigh, and use the hashtag #NailCall for a chance to be featured in next week’s roundup!
