A Plethora of Red & Pink Nail Polish for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is almost here, are you prepared?

I don’t really go all out or anything on Valentine’s Day, never have. I’m not much into to the over-hyped and commercialized (and overpriced) holiday, but it is fun to do a nice red or pink manicure for the day.

In case you are looking for inspiration on what color to wear, below are a ton of my favorite red and pink polishes.

Enjoy!

    Thank you for that! It reminded me of what I have and what I might do as a Valentines Day mani. Though I suspect konad will be involved. Its a holiday that demands it. :)

    Those are a lot to choose from. Does Urban Decay still make nail polish?

    • February 9, 2011

      Hi Jenn F.,

      Yes they brought it back about a year and a half ago or so.

      Hi Melli,

      You are welcome, thanks! I re-discovered so many colors I kinda forgot about myself, haha!

  • February 9, 2011

      Happy heart day!

  • February 9, 2011

    Wow! All those pics are amazing! I’m not a big fan of traditional reds and pinks, so I’m glad you threw a few dark, vampy shades in there. I love them!

    It looks like two different colors on the UD Woodstock pic, or is it just me? =)

    • February 9, 2011

      Hi sparris,

      Nope, same color

    Faith Dunning

    Very nice! Thanks so much for doing that!
    I just got Obey Me delivered yesterday, but this makes me realize I really DO need to pick up “Throb” and also see if I can get my hands on CG holiday colors Mommy Kissing Santa and Ruby Deer!
    I had won a few of the CG holiday sets from another bloggers give away a couple of months ago (along wth lots of other goodies) but I never actually received the prize package :( Now I can’t find those little beauties ANYWHERE!

  • February 9, 2011

    Whoa, sensory overload. Awesome! What a fun, super girly post.

    Some of those coral tinged pinks are really making me wish it was summer.

    So pretty! I wish I was talented enough to do red nails with pink hearts or vice-versa, however cheesy that may sounds.
    I love coordinating makeup and such for V-day!
    Btw, I looked all over for that darn Physician’s Formula heart palette you reviewed and could not find it. :( BUT, I ended up getting the Stila Make me blush palette instead for myself and and a gift for my sister. I love the special makeup posts!
    Thanks for the beautiful photos and great posts.

    • February 9, 2011

      Hi Sonya,

      Hmm maybe not everyone has them out yet. They are a newish item and I’ve seen them quite a bit at various stores near me. I hope you can find ‘em!

    • February 10, 2011
      Sonya

      I found the Physician’s Formula palette today! I was picking up a prescription and thought I would check again to see if CVS had it and they did! So excited. Now I have that and the Stila palette coming my way too!

      • February 10, 2011

        Hi Sonya,

        Yay!!!! I need to do some drug store hunting again and see what’s new that I missed :)

  • February 9, 2011
    Cat

    Hubba hubba! I only reach for reds and pinks on rare occasion, but seeing them all together like this makes me swoon. Kelly, please help me save money and heartache over Illamasqua Throb not being readily available here in the States; what color would you say is most similar? Any RBL reds slightly close? I think I may need to get that one regardless though! It seems to have so much more punch than any red I’ve seen.

    Thanks for this excellent post! :)

    • February 9, 2011

      Hi Cat,

      I have a bunch of red RBL’s but only 1 swatched I think. Chinoise might not be a dupe for Throb but it’s insanely gorgeous, like bright creamy Chinese red lacquer.

    • February 9, 2011
      Cat

      I love Chinoise! That, along with OPI Got the Blues for Red and Zoya Nidhi are my favorite reds. Throb seems like it’s the perfect in-between medium, blue-leaning red creme.

  • February 9, 2011
    Kaley

    I loooove the urban decay colors! I don’t know why but I can’t stop looking at Hasbury! I usually don’t do pink, but it’s a gorgeous color!

  • February 9, 2011
    Princessflttrby

    Holy Crow that’s a lot of swatches LOL I chose Zoya Sarah has my color last night thinking it appropriate for the impending VDay :)

  • February 9, 2011
    Amber

    Whoa! That’s a lot of pink and red! I’m kind of boring, so I’ll probably stick to a red creme for V-Day.

  • February 9, 2011
    Katy

    Wow.

    Do you think Zoya Karina and Sarah are pretty much identical? I have both due to circumstances out of my control.

  • February 9, 2011
    Natalie

    Still love Mommy Kissing Santa! Ode To A Ladybug and Enchante are faves, too :D

  • February 9, 2011

    OMG I LOVE THIS POST– thank you so much! I bet it took a while! It was so fun seeing all of these gorgeous colors!!

    I’m not a huge ‘pink and red’ girl, although I do have a shameful amount of them as well. But I was going through this post going ‘got it’, ‘got it’, ‘don’t got it but want it now’, lol. So many pretty colors!
    I’m also not a big Valentine’s person, probably because I don’t have a Valentine, lol (yes, this is by choice. Long, depressing story about my huge fear of loss, blah blah blah). But for some reason this year I felt like doing my nails all Valentine-y. So I’ve got on a bright, sparkly red pedi right now, and I’m going to do something fun on my nails soon. I’ll wait for your Friday poll (if you do one this week) to name colors.
    Thanks for the polish ‘porn’, I love to just look at all the pretties sometimes!

    There are only a few Lippmann polishes that have impressed me as unique enough to be worth the money, and I’m TOTALLY adding Bitches’ Brew to the top of that list. That is seriously complex and gorgeous!
    Also, I think it’s great that you have such a range of different prices and products. That’s one of the things I love so much about your blog- you are “equal opportunity”!
    Oh, and thanks for the Illamasqua “llemmings”…
    ;)

    • February 10, 2011

      Hi ReaderRita,

      Bitches’ Brew is on of the only polishes I have ever gone through a whole bottle of and gotten a 2nd!

  • February 10, 2011
    Lucy

    Amazing collection! Thanks for all your hard work doing this. I added some Duri to my list. I don’t own any of this brand.

      Hi Danica,

      Hmmm I am not sure the breast cancer ones are still around, but you might be able to find them online. They were originally out in October.

  • February 16, 2011

    Amazing Kelly: I have been away from the Internet for quite awhile now and just came back. Never have seen a post like this with tons of swatches. Some of the reds, dark reds and neutral pinks are to die for and would wear on my toenails, LOL Some of my favorites are-MAC Obey Me, Illamasqua Throb, Dashing Diva Underground City,China Glaze Mommy Kissing Santa, (I am so in love with BB Couture Romeo and Dashing Diva Underground City!!!),Color Club Jewel of a Girl, Jessica Crimson Reflections, Rescue Beauty Lounge Black Russian, OCC Strumpet, China Glaze Encouragement, Finger Paints I Pink I Can (so pretty the way this polish looks on you,) Zoya Happi :), and MAC Lucky Number. Actually all the swatches look especially gorgoeus on you, some are very pretty and very beautiful looking on your dazzling nails. Will I ever out grow wearing toenail polish? …Nah it’s just so much fun to wear and post pictures to all my friends, LOL
    Love,
    Mc Huggs :)
