Why we love it: What better way to ring in the month of love than a Valentine's Day-inspired manicure? It might be too soon to break out the heart and lip nail art, but this mod mani is on theme without being over the top. Crisp white polish is the perfect base for bubble gum pink and cherry red peekaboos. Fun, festive and tastefully simple.

Why we love it: Delicate, feminine hues swirl together to create this dreamy mani. The soft fusion of coral, pink and lilac mimics watercolor strokes with your nails as the canvas. Paint each nail slightly different than the next for this glossy, ethereal, sunset-themed masterpiece.

Why we love it: Who doesn't love a classic black and white manicure? Add to it some pretty polka dots, each with a unique placement on each nail. Look closely and you'll see that the inky hue has hints of blue — making for a two-tone stunner that is easy to recreate.

To get the look: Use Essie Nail Polish, $9, in After School Boy Blazer and Blanc.
