  • Your Guide To The Cutest Heart Nail-Art Designs On Instagram

    If you're already bored with your heavy rotation of wintery polishes and looking for fresh nail-art inspiration before Valentine's Day, then Instagram's latest manicure trend is hitting right on cue.For February, celebrity manicurists and nail-art influencers alike have been rolling out a steady stream of date-night beauty inspiration — from minimalist red-heart French tips to sparkle-loaded manicures dusted with teeny-tiny sequin hearts. From edgy takes, like actress Lana Condor's matte-black mani, to more traditional red-and-pink press-on stickers, find the coolest heart-print mani inspiration, ahead.For the To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You premiere, manicurist Tom Bachik matched Condor's cute polka-dot dress with a cool manicure: matte black, complete with white-and-black heart accents.In the past, Bachik and Condor have gone a more traditional route with an all-white manicure and pink and purple hearts.At this last year's Emmy Awards, actress and nominee Joey King wore a delicate heart-studded manicure. From a distance, the pink polish looked like any other neutral, but look closer and you'll see that manicurist Thuy Nguyen added tiny hearts at the cuticles of her ring pinky and nails.A glossy nude with red outward-facing hearts — like this look out of London's Townhouse Salon — feels cool, not cutesy.To really make your heart stickers stand out, use a matte polish as your base, like UK-based nail pro Imarni Nails. L.A.'s trendy salon, Olive & June, shows how a skinny stripe of glitter at the cuticle pairs perfectly with a tiny black heart on the ring finger.Pull inspiration from NYC's Valley Salon and start with a glossy top coat and stamp teeny-tiny red stickers on top.If you have almond-shaped nails, you can use this visual by Paintbucket and make the subtle points a backdrop for a heart-shaped French tip.Or you can make like nail artist Nicole Fernando and wear the heart tip as an accent. Bonus points for adding little eyes, Commes des Garçons-style.The juxtaposition of matte black polish with a heart-tip design makes for a modern London manicure, born out out the city's Wah Salon.If your nails are on the shorter side, add press-on stickers right at the tips, like nail influencer Unistella.Manicurist Jessica Washick plays with negative space by keeping the color on the perimeter of the nails and the inside of the hearts bare — almost like heart-shaped cut-outs on your fingers.If an accent nail is your vibe — and you have a steady hand with a striping brush— consider drawing this cursive trio of hearts across your ring finger, inspired by this look from London's DryBy Salon.We're not going to lie: This look — "loading" pixelated hearts — is pretty intricate, which means you might need to book yourself a salon appointment at NYC's Vanity Projects. That said, if you're in The Big Apple, it's probably worth it.Pastel pink plus glitter is a foolproof combo. To get this exact look, manicurist Hang Nguyen uses Orly's polish in Kiss The Bride (a glossy blush) as a base, with Jin Soon's shimmer topper in the shade Mist over the top.Like what you see?
