Let’s play a little Family Feud-esque game: We say “Valentine’s Day nails” and you say the first thing that pops into your head. Chances are, hearts are top of mind.

As pretty as heart-adorned manicures can be, they’re not for everyone. That doesn’t mean you can’t get your nails done with the holiday (and February’s hottest colors) in mind, though. You just have to get creative with all the possible pink and red combos. Fortunately for us, nail artists on Instagram are a step ahead, creating gorgeous pink, red, and combo-color nails that are perfect for February. So, without further ado, keep scrolling for over two dozen February nail art ideas that don’t revolve around hearts.

Barbie pink is the look of the moment, making this two-toned hot pink French mani a fabulous idea for February. Best of all, it’s one mani that’s easy(ish) to recreate: With French manicure nail stickers (like the Orly Half Moon Guides, $6), you can section off your nails to paint within the lines and perfect the design.

Love the idea of adding hot pink to your nail look but prefer a more minimalist design? This bordered set is worth a shot. To bring the look to life, use a fine-line nail brush (like the Beetles Nail Art Liner Brushes, $10) to create the thin outline.

These tortoiseshell and cherry red nails are giving major ’90s vibes. Admittedly, they’re also giving a “hard-to-DIY” vibe, so your best bet is to book a nail appointment if you opt for these fun February nails.

Speaking of the ’90s, a bright red negative space half-moon manicure (or exaggerated French tip, depending on how you look at it) is undeniably chic. It’s also an easy set to DIY thanks to the Chillhouse’s Chill Tips in ’90s Supermodel ($16).

These pink, red, and white swirl nails remind us of the old-school Creme Savers Strawberries & Creme commercials. Needless to say, they’re a very sweet nail art idea for February.

Prefer a graphic nail art look? This Girl Power mani says it all. (But do yourself a favor and book a nail appointment to bring these bold beauties to life.)

The velvet nail trend is alive and well, and these ruby-red velvet French tips are nothing short of stunning. Since these are typically created with magnetic gel polishes cured under UV lights, you’ll likely need to book an appointment to achieve the look.

If you love the idea of a manicure that has a lot to say—but prefer a more minimalist design—consider these matte red baby girl nails.

@nails_of_la

These pink chrome nails conjure images of tiny plastic Barbie heels (you know the ones), and we’re loving it. True chrome nails typically require a pro’s expertise, so get your manicurist on speed dial to bring these eye-catching nails to life.

You don’t have to cover your entire nail in polish to make a statement. Case in point: These half-and-half matte red nails. Oh, and did we mention that these are easy to DIY? Simply use a piece of nail tape (or trace a fine line) to divide each nail, then fill in one side with red polish. No worries if it’s not matte—you can always finish the look with a mattifying top coat, like OPI’s Matte Top Coat ($12).

For a mystical February mani, copy this iridescent aura-inspired nail look. To create this set, the nail artist used shimmery red powder topped off with gel.

Bubblegum pink French tips are a bit more playful than classic red. To make them even more fun, add gold accents here and there.

@overglowedit

Iridescent nails remain a top request after Hailey Bieber sparked the craze in 2022. To make the nail trend especially fitting for February, add rose decals for a romantic twist. The Deco Miami Ornate Nail Stickers ($10) make recreating the look easier than ever.

@imarninails

There’s no shame in opting for a solid coat of color this February. To DIY a similar look, consider the Dazzle Dry Quick-Dry Nail Lacquer in Pink Plume ($22).

@amyle.nails

For a daintier take on French tips, take this two-toned pink approach. Just keep in mind: Unless you have a very steady hand, this nail look is best achieved by a pro.

@angelsnailz

If you have long nails, you can create an intricate February nail look like this multi-color pink and cream tie-dye set.

@imarninails

You can never go wrong with a cherry red French mani. Here, you can see how the design works well on short, squoval nails.

@imarninails

Just like plain pink nails are bold enough to make a statement this is February, the same goes for red. The trick is finding the perfect shade. If you ask us, the Olive & June’s Nail Polish in Kiss Cam ($9) is hard to beat.

This milky mani is February-ready with its glob-like red splotches. And despite being non-uniform, the end look is positively chic.

@heluviee

On the topic of chic, let’s take a moment to appreciate these oxblood French tips, complete with crystals. You may want to enlist the help of a pro to create these fine, art deco-style lines.

@heluviee

We’re suckers for swirls, and this is just another way to add them to your February nail look.

22 of 30

@nails_of_la

Checkerboard nails are trending, and this pink and red iteration is an obvious choice for February. Best of all, the look is super easy to recreate thanks to the Nails of LA Vibe Check Nail Wrap ($10).

@nailsbysuman

Who said pink and red are the only colors appropriate for February? Adding metallic gold to the mix gives any nail look a luxe feel.

@lolo.nailedit

Here we have another take on aura nails. Only, instead of an iridescent background, lilac polish takes the stage—and we’re into it.

25 of 30

@amyle.nails

Why stick to one style of French tips when you can switch it up? As noted above, the easiest way to DIY a French manicure is with half-moon nail stickers.

26 of 30

@lolo.nailedit

Love the idea of a half-and-half mani but can’t pick a single color? Stick to a classic February palette and arrange them from light to dark.

27 of 30

@amyle.nails

Magenta is the color of the year, so these deep pink nails aren’t just perfect for February—you can wear them all year ’round.

28 of 30

@overglowedit

For a flirty, feminine February nail look that’s on the subtler side, consider recreating this milky baby-pink bejeweled manicure. You can DIY it with nail jewels, like those found in the HUETFAT Nail Art Rhinestones Kit ($7).

@amyle.nails

Prefer more neutral nail looks? Opting for a blush-toned manicure is a lovely idea for February.

The longer your nails are, the more room you have for February-friendly nail art. These tattoo-inspired square tips prove it.
