A red nail polish is a classic Valentine’s Day nails option. Well, this nail polish has been the most perfect red nail polish I have come across for my brown and tan skin tone! It’s not too orange or too dark. It kind of looks like a neon red in the bottle, but it applies really great. It feels like a neutral, basic red color.

If your Valentine’s Day outfit consists of classic colors, then this red nail polish color would be the perfect choice to add a pop of color to your outfit!

This pink color is a bit muted but is still a great nail polish for Valentine’s Day! It reminds me of the dessert color palettes made up of pinks and browns. This pink is more of a subtle and soft pink to wear. It looks like a mix between terracotta and pink.

This would be a great pink nail polish color to wear with a brown or tan outfit. Add some gold jewelry for that romantic aesthetic!

This nail polish is a pinkish white color. It’s a lovely lighter pink nail polish for Valentine’s Day. If you like using accent colors on your nails, I think it would make a great color combo with the previous color, Eternal Optimist.

Ella + Mila has a great Lovers Collection full of beautiful pink and purple colors that would be great for Valentine’s Day!

I love to use the Ella + Mila In a Rush Top Coat for all of my nail polishes. First off, it’s the quickest drying top coat I’ve ever had. In about ten minutes, the top coat will have fully developed. However, I like to wait a full hour just to make sure all the layers have fully dried.

Secondly, this top coat is glossy. It’s why I would definitely recommend this top coat nail polish for your Valentine’s Day nails. It’s like the equivalent of adding a clear gloss to your lipstick.

I like to do two coats of this top coat to get the full coverage and glossy effect. I usually do a thinnish coat the first time, then a thicker coat for the second top coat.


These are some of my favorite nail polish colors to wear on Valentine’s Day and throughout the year!

They are classic romantic colors that go with just about any outfit.
