    Nail looks inspired by a holiday can be a double-edged sword. Sure, it's fun to embrace the spirit, but a lot of looks tend to veer into cheesy territory where you and your nails just look silly. But, no longer, now that our friends over at Scratch have created Valentine's Day nail wraps.

    You may remember Scratch as the makers of the most perfect watermelon nails on the face of the planet. For those of you who have not yet been introduced to their nail-decor magic, they're the brand that partners with artists and creative luminaries to create fun, graphic art (emphasis on the art) in the form of nail wraps. Past collaborators have included everyone from Jessica Washick to Caroline Burke.

    For Valentine's Day, the brand paired up with Hannah Rox to debut three beautiful, cheeky, but still sophisticated nail-art odes to all things love. From the cute Owl Be Yours to the traditional mixed hearts of Hug Me, Kiss Me, there's a wrap here to suit every style.

    Oh, but wait, friends, because there is so much more. Because we love Scratch (and they adore you), we're extending this lovefest with a giveaway. We're granting one very lucky winner the chance to win a year's supply of Scratch wraps. The winner will receive each month's collection, a total of three wraps per month, for a full year. That's 36 wraps worth $432!

    To enter, head on over to Facebook and be sure to like both R29 Beauty and Scratch, then click through the slideshow and tell us in the comments below how you'll be dressing up your digits this V-Day. We'll pick one lucky winner on February 14 and notify them via email of their newfound nail wealth. So, what are you waiting for?
