Polka Dot And Sparkles: A Manicure That Will Last For A Month From Star Masters

Life hacks on how to extend the life of a manicure were popular even before quarantine. And now, when many salons are closed, advice on which "long-playing" coating to choose is especially in demand. It turned out that a stylish option can be done at home. Such patterns will look great on overgrown nails, and it won't take much time to correct them. We are inspired by the creations of star nail masters!

Lyrical digression

Who to learn from: Madeleine Poole, nail editor, designer and brand ambassador for Sally Hansen, works for Nike, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Nordstrom advertising campaigns.

How to repeat: easy! You don't have to dwell on nude shades. If you want to add color and cheer yourself up with a bright manicure, do not deny yourself the pleasure. The main rule is to use a beige, pink or transparent varnish at the base of the nail, and start experimenting from the middle. To keep the lines straight, you can use special strips for French manicure or scotch tape.

Just shine

Who to learn from: Marian Newman, personal nail master of Lady Gaga, Angelina Jolie, Kate Moss, author of the book "Nailed It: Nails, Fashion, Technique", collaborates with Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton, Tom Ford, Vivienne Westwood.

How to repeat: in a couple of minutes. Apply a traditional base - transparent or in the color of the nail plate. And decorate with sparkles, rhinestones, and other decorative elements. You can apply only to the tip, you can step back from the middle or make a vertical wave along the edge.

Gorgeous ending

Who to learn from: Tom Bachik, one of the top manicure stylists, whose clients include Jennifer Lopez, Victoria Beckham, Beyonce, Shakira, Britney Spears, Penelope Cruz, Jennifer Aniston, Cindy Crawford, he trains celebrities for the Oscars, Golden Globes and Emmy Awards, works with Chanel, Gucci and Versace.

How to repeat: you have to try. The scheme is the same: at the bottom of a neutral color there is varnish, and at the tip - at least gothic black, at least positive yellow. You can make strict graphic lines, this will require special stickers, or you can fantasize and draw smoother "hearts".


Who to learn from: Jenny Langworth, Rihanna and Lana Del Rey's favorite master, regularly designs nails for Gucci shows and ad campaigns.

How to repeat: Be patient. It is very beautiful, but it requires certain skills. You can draw anything: stars, flowers, emoticons, a glass of wine. There are no restrictions. The main thing is to choose a "tool": a thin brush, a needle or a toothpick. If you don't have anything like that at hand, and the artist among you is so-so, you can use nail stickers.

Put a point

Who to learn from: Betina Goldstein, a fan of minimalist nail design, with Chiara Ferragni, Bella Hadid, Zoe Kravitz and Kendall Jenner lining up.

How to repeat: elementary, Watson. "Polka-dot" is one of the most practical and simple options, even those who have never painted their nails on their own can handle it. Nude varnish, brush or toothpick, transparent coating for fixing. This option will be enough for a month. Too lazy to draw? Use rhinestones!
