You can mix metals and spikes with red, leather, vamp or red lips, and/or add in a funky print like Cheetah to edge up the look! If you pair that with classic designs such as pencil skirts and polished pointed toe heels, you’ll achieve a sophisticated yet edgy vibe. For a funkier style, do the above but pair it with miniskirts and Kitschy motifs!

What will you be wearing for date night this Valentine’s Day?

 


Poppy Nail Art for Valentine’s Day

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m a BIG fan of celebrating the holidays. Any excuse to be festive is enough for me! With that, I’m dedicating this nail art tutorial to upcoming Valentine’s Day. : -)

Style Trials Vday Nail Art Tutorial

Checkout my video for the tutorial on how to achieve this two-tone, romantic Valentine’s nail art. I love the poppy colors!

Valentine’s Nail Art

Products Used:

  • Zoya Nail Polish, color Kara
  • Zoya Nail Polish, color Jewell
  • White Nail Art Pen
  • Regular Tape

Like I showed in the video, you could even stop at just the two-tone nail art shading part, which would give you a poppy Spring look instead. But I think adding the white details and little heart help make it more romantic for something specific like Valentine’s.

You can do this type of look with any colors, so get creative! Don’t have the colors you want or nail art pens?  Checkout the options at Ulta, and use this Ulta 20% off ANY product coupon. It even works on sale and clearance items, and is good till 2/16/13!

Here’s one last closeup.

Valentine’s Day – What to Wear? Perfect Vday Looks!

Valentine’s Day is sneaking around the corner, and you may find yourself wondering last minute what to wear. Here’s a few suggestions.

WHAT TO WEAR FOR YOUR PERFECT VALENTINE

Well obviously this ties into whatever activity you’re doing to celebrate, but let’s just say you’re going to a nice dinner or out somewhere with your significant other. Valentine’s Day is obviously associated with the color red, however you could definitely pull off a look wearing another romantic color such as purple or pink. If you’re not a “color” person, then opt for something classy and neutral, then add a touch of sparkle through accessories and matte red lips to glam up the evening. I tend to be a chameleon when it comes to style, but for something like anniversaries and Vday, I like to remind him of my girly, sparkly, ruffly side. 🙂

Look 1

Here’s an example of a cool, Valentine’s Day outfit for the modern girl. It could work for a range of Vday activities; the pants make it more casual, yet the heels and sequin top definitely kick up the “dressy” factor. Basically, it’s a great option for pretty much any date night, and it’s comprised of separates you can mix/match and wear again.

1. Pants Express Mars Red Slim Ponte Knit Pant

2. Top Express Vintage Pink Crochet & Sequin Tank

3. Heels Steve Madden Blush Traisie Pumps

4. Ring Mod Cloth heart ring

5. Nail Polish OPI color Hearts & Tarts

Look 2

Here’s a second look that’s more sweet and romantic with a vintage inspiration. This is more of the style I would wear for Vday, and I actually wore these exact heels for my wedding (but in blue as my something blue)! LOVE them, but they are an investment piece because they’re designer Badgley Mischka. You could definitely find some less expensive but similar options at places like DSW.

1. Dress Mod Cloth Peachy Pink Lace Dress

2. Earrings Mod Cloth Pearl Bow Earrings

3. Nail Polish OPI Significant Other Color

4. Heels Badgley Mischka White Randall Pump

If you’ve been with your significant other for awhile, another suggestion could be to add in a nostalgic piece, something that’s special to the two of you. Perhaps that piece of fancy jewelry he bought you years ago but you rarely have the occasion to wear it? Me, I was thinking about re-wearing either some of my wedding jewelry he bought me or wedding hair clips (depending on where we’re going). I recently got married, and I’m itching to find an excuse to re-wear my stuff! It’s a fun way to add a little more meaning to the night.

What are your Vday plans? Which Valentine Style fits you best — Look 1 or Look 2?
