Feel The Love – Valentine’s Day Nails

Every year, there’s one special date that many people think of as the most romantic of all. February 14th – Valentine’s Day, is a day of love, romance and all things couple orientated. According to the Society of American Florists, over 250 million roses are produced for the holiday, mainly imported from Columbia, while the National Retail Federation suggests that the total spend in the US is heading towards $19 billion, with an average of nearly $150 per person. These figures include meals out, gifts, jewellery, outfits, and so on.

No doubt, some of those dollars will be going towards manicures, after all, we want to look, and feel our best, so along with a new outfit, comes new nails, and I’ve picked out my favorite Valentine manicures just for you. But there’s no need to wait until February to try them out – any day can be romantic!

1) Sexy Mix Gel Nail Polish Set

What Makes it Great
Let your loved one know you’re thinking of them with these mood changing polishes. With 8 colors to choose from, each one changes color depending on your body’s temperature, so when your heart beats faster, and you become hotter, your nails will change to match. I love this idea, and the super durable polish lasts for ages, too. It wasn’t until day 17 that the first chip developed.

Where it Could be Improved
After experimenting, I felt the color changes were more responsive without a base coat creating a barrier, however it really should mention this on the instructions.

The Final Verdict

This set of mood changing polishes is awesome. Highly durable and almost magical to watch as they change color, every mani kit needs these.


2) OPI Infinite Shine – Pretty Pink Perseveres

What Makes it Great
Prettily pink and gorgeously pale, OPI’s Infinite Shine polish is just perfect for a romantic date. Worn as a self polish, nail art or as elegant French Tips, the slight shimmer lends a glamorous touch to any style you choose. Deceptively hard wearing, they lasted for nearly three weeks before the tiniest chip appeared.

Where it Could be Improved
As pale as this color is, I needed to apply two coats to achieve the streak-free, smooth-as-silk look I wanted.

This baby pink polish from OPI is ideal for day or evening wear, and is way too pretty to save just for February!


3) INHDBOX Nail Stickers inc Hearts/Butterflies/Kisses

What Makes it Great
This set of tiny, but impressively detailed stickers are awesome for a special date. Brush on a base coat and a polish of your choice, allow to dry before applying the stickers, using the included tweezers, and add two layers of top coat – it’s that simple. A quick, incredibly pretty instant manicure! There are plenty of designs to choose from and they last a long time – almost three weeks before they started to peel.

Where it Could be Improved
Although they are simple to apply, it would be useful if they came with instructions.
