Nails Inc Status Ready Nails Polish

I’m obsessed with this super glossy, long lasting and intense hue! Best of all though, it boasts an expertly-designed brush exclusive to Nails Inc! Wide and flat, it works with the shape of the nail for a flawless application in just a few strokes.

Giving yourself professional-looking Valentine’s nails has never been easier! Even better, Glossy team member Amy has created a step-by-step tutorial showing you how to create this adorable love-themed nail look

Insider Tip: All Nails Inc polishes have a cap on the bottle. Don’t ruin the bottle by trying to twist the cap off, remove it by pulling upwards!

Step 1. Prep Your Nails

You should always apply a base coat before painting your nails with colourful polish. It emphasizes the hue’s brightness and keeps your nails healthy.

Amy regularly uses the Nails Inc Superfood Base Coat. Formulated with nourishing natural ingredients, including Aloe vera, ginseng, pomegranate and lemon, it provides a long-lasting glossy finish.

Step 2. Apply Red And Gold Base Coats

Use the deep cherry red shade Status Ready from your ‘It’s All About Love’ box to paint all your nails but your ring fingers. These two should be coated with the shiny and dazzling gold hued Fairy Lightning. If you want to create a truly vibrant and long-lasting colour, apply two coats to each nail.

Step 3. Draw On Your Hearts 

Now to add a little romantic touch to your Valentine's nails! Using a medium-sized nail art dotter, paint two small side-by-side gold dots on the top half of the nails you’ve painted red. Then use a thin dotter to link these two dots and create a cherry shape. Finally, fill in the shape.

Repeat the process on your gold-painted ring fingers, using the red polish to draw the hearts. Amy uses the three dotting tools for the Rio Ultimate Nail Art Professional Artist Collection to create her hearts.

Step 4. Finish With A Top Coat 

After having lovingly created your Valentine's nails, the last thing you want to do is smudge them. Allow the hearts to dry, then finish off the look with a protective top coat. Your nails will look sleek and shiny!

Amy uses the Nails Inc 45 Second Top Coat With Kensington Caviar. Its unique formula is chip resistant, making your colour last even longer. An Instagrammable manicure? Obviously!

The Final Nail Look 

Red, gold and absolutely adorable, these Valentine's nails are the perfect addition to your date-night outfit. Alternatively, if you’re happily single and hosting a Galentine’s pamper partythough, use this tutorial to give each other a fabulous manicure. It’ll be so much fun!
