Jan 29 2014 - 2:00pm

Valentine's Day is tomorrow, so why not show your nails some love with one of these nail art ideas straight from the professionals? From hearts and bows to Xs and Os, here are a few fun ways to wear your heart on your fingertips this holiday.

XO

Manicurist April Foreman [1], who has worked with Charlize Theron [2] and Kate Beckinsale [3], proves Valentine's Day nail art isn't just about hearts.

Nude Hearts

A more simple approach to heart-tipped nails, this look from Marie Nails Salon [4] can be re-created using a striping brush to draw on the gilded, heart-shape outline.

Plaid & Pearls

Another design from Marie Nails Salon [5], this one features heart tips and a plaid pattern with a pearl accent.

Sealed With a Bow

Illamasqua [6]'s nail ambassador, Fleury Rose, used the brand's new Speckled Nail Varnish in Scarce [7] ($16) to create the mottled tips. "I was inspired by the colors I often see on Valentines decorations: pinks, purples, and polka dots," she said.
