Valentine's Day 2024 Nail Trends Recap: Celebrating Love with Dip Powder

Although Valentine's Day 2024 passed, nail enthusiasts and professionals continuously showcasing their creativity with a mix of innovative designs. This year, the trends were all about intricate details and a playful use of colors.

1. Thermals

One of the most popular trends this year is the use of thermal dip powders. These "mood"-inspired dips change color based on temperature. Imagine nails transitioning from a cozy purple to a passionate pink like the current favorite Lovestruck as you open your favorite box of chocolates with a loved one.  Tons of flakes are added for an extra sparkle!

2. Terrazzo Design

Terrazzo style nails are making a statement with their speckled effect, reminiscent of the popular flooring material. For Valentine's Day, the trend has been adapted to feature pink to white thermal transitions, like Love Locked, incorporating tiny, colorful flecks that resemble scattered rose petals. Check out all of the terrazzo style dip powders here.

3. Iridescent Glitters

Hot pink iridescent glitter nails are perfect for those who prefer a bright but sparkly manicure, like Flirtatious.  These nails are ideal for Valentine's Day, offering a touch of glamour that complements any outfit.

4. Bold and Beautiful Solids

For those who adore a more simple manicure, solid colors in shades of pink, magenta, and lavender are in style. These colors can be worn individually for a minimalistic look or combined in creative ways for a more avant-garde approach. Ombre effects, color blocking, and alternating hues on different nails are just a few ways to play with these vibrant, love-inspired colors like Lavender, Pinkalicious, ADMV, and Unforgettable.

5. Artistic Expressions

Lastly, intricate nail art continues to be a significant trend, with designs ranging from minimalist hearts, to delicate flowers. Stickers, stamping plates, and freehand painting allow for endless customization, making each manicure as unique as the person wearing it.


Valentine's Day 2024 was all about expressing love in the most colorful, creative, and personal ways through nail art. Whether you prefer the interactive charm of thermal dip powder, the modernity of terrazzo designs, the subtle sparkle of glitter, the boldness of solid colors, or the uniqueness of artistic expressions, there's a trend to match every personality and mood.
