There are very few things quite as exciting as getting a new set of nails done at the salon. As your old set grows out, suddenly you’ll have to consider all the different options available to you for your next set.
Many people choose their nail design by the time of year, and events that happen at different times of the year.
From festive red and green nails at Christmas to dark and mysterious nails at Halloween, there are lots of different designs that you might choose for your nails.
In February, you might find yourself wanting a super fun and flirty pink and red design ready for Valentine’s Day.
If that is the case, then you are in the right place. In this guide, we’ve compiled a list of 20 super fun and flirty pink and red nail designs that are perfect for your next set. So read on for all the inspiration you need!
1. Red And Pale Pink
The first design that we would recommend is this super sweet and simple red and pale pink design. The color combination of the deep red and the pale pink contrast each other perfectly and create a truly beautiful nail design.
We love this design because it is so easy for your nail tech to achieve. The simple yet stylish design ensures that your nails will look stunning, but you won’t have to spend too long at the salon.
So if you’re looking for Valentine’s nails, this is the first design we would recommend!
2. Red And Pink Stripes
Another gorgeous design that we would recommend checking out is this red and pink stripes design. The lighter shade of red perfectly complements the bright shade of pink in this design, creating nails that really pop.
This design is definitely not for the faint of heart, and it really is a bold look. But it is one that we absolutely love, and we’re sure you’ll like it too! So if you’re looking for something different, why not go for this design?
3. Red And Pink Checkerboard
Alternatively, if you love the idea of a bold nail design, why not try out this red and pink checkerboard design? This nail look uses similar shades of red and pink to the last example we showed you.
So, if you loved those shades of red and pink, you’ll love these nails!
When it comes to red and pink nails, a lot of the designs that people will show you often contain hearts. So we love that this design is a little different from the classic pink and red Valentine’s nails you typically see!
4. Pale Pink With Red Hearts
If you would prefer a classic Valentine’s Day set, then we would recommend showing your nail tech this pale pink with red hearts design.
The pale pink of this design is a color that will suit almost any skin tone and perfectly complement any outfit that you wear. The small amount of red allows the color to pop without causing it to clash with anything you wear (including jewelry).
As the red is introduced in small amounts, the hearts add the perfect finishing touch to these pale pink nails. We love them and we’re certain you will too!
5. Red And Pink With White And Silver
In contrast, if you are looking for a Valentine’s Day set that screams Valentine’s Day from the get-go, we would recommend this colorful design.
The combination of red, pink, white, and silver screams everything romantic so it is perfect for a day that celebrates love.
No matter what events you have going on in February, this bold color combination will definitely work. It is bold, yet sweet, and guaranteed to suit anyone. We love the simplicity that this bold design is able to achieve, so why not give it a go?
6. Pale Pink With Red Detailing
As you will see throughout this list, a very popular color combination is pale pink with deep red, and this is another design that perfectly uses these two colors.
The pale pink of the base nail combined with the deep red detailing looks incredibly rich and stylish and screams class.
The use of another pale shade of pink to add even more detailing to the nail is absolutely genius because it creates a design that looks fancy without being too difficult to achieve. You’re going to love these nails, we’re sure of it!
7. Pink With Red Tips
If you love a French manicure, why not switch things up with this pink and red nail design? Instead of using a nude base color, this design instead uses a pale pink for the base of the nail. This is then finished off with red tips instead of white tips.
The design of this nail is super similar to a French manicure, so perfect for any fans of these nails. But, it is different enough to be something very special for Valentine’s Day. For anyone searching for simple Valentine’s nails, this design really is perfect!
8. Red And Pink Vertical Stripes
If you liked the horizontal stripe design that we looked at earlier, we’re certain you’ll love this design too. Instead of having horizontal stripes, this design instead features vertical stripes, and this can really help to elongate the nails.
For anybody who is unhappy with the short length of their nails, this design is perfect. As well as looking incredibly stylish, the design will also make your nails look longer than they are which we’re certain you’ll love!
Sleek and stylish, this design is perfect for anyone looking for something a little different.
9. Red And Pink Hearts
Alternatively, if you love the idea of having a heart-inspired nail design for Valentine’s Day, but want something a little different, we would recommend this nail design.
We love this design because the hearts are reserved for just one nail, so the design isn’t too in your face.
With the remaining nails sporting a similar design to the one that we looked at in #7, this design is perfect for anybody who wants a bit of both. Be sure to check it out!
10. Red And Pink Flowers
Instead of having a heart-inspired nail design, why not consider a flower-inspired design instead? This red and pink flower design is truly beautiful and perfect for anyone who doesn’t want to be too cliché with their Valentine’s nails.
We love this design because it is incredibly cute. The combination of lighter shades is truly refreshing in this design, and perfect for anyone who wants red and pink nails that are a little different.
11. Pink And Red Sparkles
Some people love sparkly nails, and if you are one of these people then this design is made for you. This design is far from simple but it is truly perfect for anybody who loves their nails to stand out.
Some nail designs are so much more than just nail designs, they are art, and this design is really one of these.
With beautiful sparkly nails that incorporate both pink and red into the design, this design is perfect for anyone who wants to sparkle on Valentine’s Day.
12. Different Shades Of Pink And Red
Another great style of pink and red nails to consider is a design that includes different shades of pink and red, such as the design included here.
A lot of the designs we have looked at so far have introduced additional colors to the design, but we love that this design keeps things simple with different shades of pink and red.
You’ll love this design, and your nail tech will love you for keeping it simple yet sweet!
13. Pink And Red Spots
Alternatively, why not consider a spotty design? So far we’ve looked at designs that have included lots of different shapes, but this is the first design that has included spots and we love it!
There is something incredibly beautiful about this spotty design that we’re sure you’ll love! It is sweet and simple, and perfect for anybody who wants to celebrate Valentine’s Day in their own way! So why not treat yourself to this design?
14. Pretty In Pink Valentine’s Nails
This next heart-inspired nail design is truly something special. If you are somebody who loves retro designs, then this Pretty in Pink Valentine’s Nails set is made for you!
We love the way that this design combines giving the manicure “tips” with the heart shape, and the combination of red and pink really is to die for.
This set really is one of the most stylish on this list, and we would definitely recommend it to any retro fans out there!
15. Super Short Pink And Red Nails
Not everybody can have long nails, so if you are looking for a shorter design that is still really cute, we would recommend this super short pink and red nails design!
This design really is one of the most simple on this list as there are no patterns included in the design, but we love that.
There is something breathtaking about the simplicity of this design, and it is perfect for anyone who doesn’t like to spend too long at the salon. If you just want simple pink and red nails, this is the design we would recommend!
16. Ruby Red And Pink Nails
In total contrast to the last nail design that we looked at, this ruby red and pink nail design is perfect for anyone looking for something fancy.
If you really want to treat yourself to an expensive set of nails for Valentine’s Day, this is the perfect design, and it will look great for weeks!
While this design is perfect for Valentine’s Day, it really isn’t Valentine’s Day specific. This nail design will be perfect no matter what time of year you want red and pink nails, and that is what makes it so great.
These nails look expensive and they will really make you feel like a million bucks. That is why you really need to consider this design!
17. Ombre Pink And Red Nails
Similarly to the last set that we looked at, we also adore the fancy ombre design of this pink and red nail design. Just like the ruby red nails, this ombre look seems expensive and it is perfect for anyone who really wants to treat themselves.
We love the way that the red in the center of this design slowly fades into a pale pink, and we’re sure you’ll love it too! This design is truly special, and perfect for a day of love.
18. Cherry Red And Pink Nails
There are very few colors quite as iconic as cherry red, and that is why we love this cherry red and pink nail design. The inspiration behind this nail design is clearly cherries, and that is what makes it so special!
This design is totally different from the other Valentine’s nails in this guide, and that is why we would recommend it!
19. Pink And Red Flames
Flames have become commonly associated with romantic relationships in recent years, and that is why we love this pink and red flame design.
This nail design is the perfect way to show your partner how attracted you are to them without opting for a classic heart design on your nails. It is something special, and a design we think you’ll adore!
20. Pink And Red Flower Detailing
We looked at a flower design earlier, but this next flower design is totally different from the one that we looked at in #10.
This flower design is a lot more intricate and realistic than the last flower design that we looked at, but it is this intricacy that makes it so special.
There are so many different things about this design that make it great. From the pale pink background to the detailing on the pink and red flowers, to the deep green leaves added as a finishing touch.
This nail design requires real talent to execute, and most nail technicians will be thrilled by the challenge. So if you are looking for something special this Valentine’s Day, consider this design!
In short, there are tons of different designs to choose from when it comes to pink and red nail designs. From pink and red swirls to a spin on a classic French polish with red tips instead of white tips, there are lots of options to choose from.
In this guide, we’ve taken a look at 20 of the best pink and red nail designs for all the inspiration you need. Thanks for reading!
