If you're one of the six million people who, according to CNN, expect a marriage proposal come February 14, there are a few things you can do to prepare. First, ask yourself if this is really what you want. If your answer is yes, then it's time to book a manicure.
Call it cliché, vain, or presumptuous all you want — it's a move everyone has thought about at least once. So if you're getting a ring like Cardi B this year, remember that there's nothing wrong with wanting your requisite Facebook photos to look good. But if you're after something a little more timeless than the traditional heart-shaped nail art you'll normally find on this holiday, stick with us.
Ahead, we've rounded up the coolest Valentine's Day-themed manicures to bring to your salon appointment. Best-case scenario: You lock down your soulmate. Worst-case scenario: You're left with a really rad mani.
