For those who aspire to be called ~a vision in red,~ this elegant yet easy-to-achieve nail art look is your perfect match. To recreate this nail art design, you’ll need:
- your favourite butter LONDON red Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer, like Her Majesty’s Red (a true red créme nail lacquer) or Come to Bed Red (a classic red crème nail lacquer)
- Mums the Word, a rosy nude créme nail lacquer
After you’ve applied your base coat, use a Long Striping Brush to follow the natural curve of your nail and create your desired French Tip shape. Fill with your choice of red nail lacquer. Then, use the same red nail lacquer to coat the entire ring finger. Once dry, use a small detail brush to paint on a heart with Mums the Word Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer. Finish off with Hardwear Shine UV Top Coat for a high-gloss shine and to help protect nail lacquer colour for up to 10 days of wear.

This time of year is all about the bakes, from chocolate covered strawberries to dark fudge to glitter-dusted cupcakes—our lives have quite literally become a box of chocolates. To capture the sugar (and spice) of the season, try your hand at these sparkly and sweet pink nails. To recreate this nail art design, you’ll need:
- Your favourite butter LONDON pink Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer. For a regal rosy nude nail créme lacquer, try Mums the Word. For a vibrant bubblegum pink, try Fruit Machine.
- Tickety Boo, an iridescent sparkly pink overcoat nail lacquer
After your base coat, paint on two coats of your pink nail lacquer. After dry, glitz it up with Tickety Boo for an added sparkle that catches the light from every angle. Finish off with Hardwear Shine UV Top Coat for a high-gloss shine and to help protect nail lacquer colour for up to 10 days of wear.

Transparency is key in love, which is why we fancy our translucent Strawberry Rhubarb jelly nails as a playful nod to Valentine’s Day. Not only does this Jelly Preserve Strengthening Treatment provide tinted sheer coverage, but it’s designed to help condition, strengthen and rejuvenate the look of dry-brittle nails.
Infused with Bamboo Extract, Diamond Powder, Vitamin E, Calcium, Tea Tree Oil, Keratin and Arginine, this jelly nail treatment works hard to rejuvenate the look of nails and help repair damage from harsh nail formulas and practices. What a love letter to your manicure!
To get this look, simply layer on this Jelly Preserve Strengthening Treatment until you reach desired colour.

For a barely-there manicure, we’re loving this creamy nail art look with pops of hearts across each nail! Minimalist and perfect for celebrating all Valentine’s season long, these nude nails are an amazing match for anyone after a soft, whimsical manicure. To recreate this nail art look, you’ll need:
After applying your base coat, paint on two coats of Steady On!. Once dry, use a dotting tool or small detail tool to draw small hearts onto each nail. Paint hearts in different directions on each nail to add a dash of contrast! Finish off with Hardwear Shine UV Top Coat for a high-gloss shine and to help protect nail lacquer colour for up to 10 days of wear.
