Use Your Cricut to Make Valentine Nail Art Decals

I’ve set up a Cricut Design Space canvas so you can easily get started making this nail art project. Pick your favorite adhesive vinyl to cut the hugs and kisses (XO) design and you’re almost finished. I used glitter vinyl for this project, but any of the adhesive vinyls will work. You can also use paper if you prefer, it just takes a little more prep to adhere the nail art.



  1. Follow the on-screen instructions to cut the nail art designs.
  2. Weed excess vinyl so the nail art is ready to peel and stick.
  3. Paint your nails with your favorite polish color and let dry thoroughly.
  4. Apply the Valentine nail art to each nail as you’d like.
  5. Apply 1-2 layers of top coat polish to seal the vinyl in place. Let dry.
  6. Tip: If you find the decal peels off easily, either choose a stickier vinyl or apply a layer of top coat polish and apply the vinyl before the polish dries completely.

    • Thank you! We love making tiny nail decals with the Cricut over here… especially because you can resize the art to fit all sizes of nails.
