Celebrity nail artist Madeline Poole teaches us how to do cute Galentine’s Day nail art

With Galentine’s Day just around the corner, you and your besties might have a day of pampering on the brain. Seriously think about how amazing it would be to spend Galentine’s Day just kicking back at home with your gal pals, pizza, and your favorite ‘80s rom-com instead of going out on the town and getting into trouble (though, we have to admit that sounds kind of fun, too).

If you’re into the idea of a turning your apartment into an at-home beauty salon with your BFFs rather than breaking the bank with a pricey spa day, we already have the manicure part figured out. Celebrity nail artist and Sally Hansen Global Color Ambassador, Madeline Poole, has hooked us up with an exclusive nail art design!

All you need is the following:

And here are the steps to get your claws crazy cute!

1Paint your nails with two coats of the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in B Girl

2With a detail brush, draw a line along the bottom half of your nail to dissect it in two using the color Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Smartease

3Fill in the remaining top of the nail with Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Smartease.

4Apply a second coat of Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Smartease

5Use a dotting tool dipped in Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Red Eye to paint two small circles at the intersection of the pink and blue color.

6Use a striping tool or detail brush to connect the two red dots with a triangle. This will create a heart shape.

7Apply Miracle Gel Top Coat to all nails for a long-lasting manicure


The finished look


Ta-da! Happy Galentine’s Day!
