7 Minimalist Manicures That Are Perfect for Valentine’s Day 2022



Valentine’s Day is almost upon us, so perhaps you’re thinking about vamping up your look. Whether single, dating, or happily coupled up, add an indie rom-com touch to your life with some Valentine’s Day-inspired nails. The best part? You don’t need to go all-out, because this season’s hottest trend is about stripping things back. From outlined love hearts to classic red tips, Vogue rounds up the best minimalist manicures to try, as thoughts turn to love in all its forms.

Go green

Red, pinks and purples are more classic Valentine’s Day colors, but why not switch it up this season with a love letter to green?

Classic red

Because sometimes, less really is more.

Candy crush

There’s something incredibly fresh about a nude manicure, while these candy colored love hearts are giving us all the feels.

Say it with love

What better way to say “I love you” than with these cute red love hearts?


Tell me it’s Valentine’s Day without telling me it’s Valentine’s Day. This simple white manicure and pink love heart outline is the understated way to nod to the holiday.

Abstract love

Leave it to celebrity favorite Tom Bachik to create the chicest minimalist manicure; an abstract love heart with negative space.

Love’s jewel

And for the diehard minimalists among us, there’s this: a single love heart gem (diamond ring not included).
