Valentine's Day offers the perfect excuse to have unapologetically girlie, romantic nails, like this dainty pink look accented with a bright pink heart and pretty polka dots. This sweet manicure has different elements happening at once, but it's easy to create and even easier to wear. First, I polished two coats of Deborah Lippmann in Prelude to a Kiss ($18) to form a pink base. Next, I used the Color Club Nail Art Pen Duo in White ($5) to dab on the delicate spots. If you already have a white polish, you can use that and the tip of a pencil to create the tiny dots. Once my ring finger polish was completely dry, I used this tutorial to form a heart-shaped stencil with tape. I finished by painting on MAC Nail Lacquer in Impassioned ($16) to create the bright pink accent. Go ahead and wear your heart on your fingertips!
