Need some inspiration for some cute Valentines' Day nails to try out this year?

Valentine's Day will be here before we know it! And whether we have someone special to celebrate with, or we're celebrating it alone with our cat... yet again... you can't go wrong with a cute and festive mani/pedi! Plus, you need to always be prepared if you end up meeting your future husband in the fruit department the next time you're out shopping!

Sure, you can just do a nice, classy red... I mean, that's classic. But for those of you who want to jazz it up a bit, here are some really cute ideas! Try to do it yourself, or bring it into your favorite nail salon and show them what you'd like!

First Valentine's Day Celebrating

Pretty light pink is a classy choice. Add a light shimmer on all nails (or buy a polish with shimmer already in it), and add a heavier gold glitter on top of a few accent nails.
