Nail blogger and creator of the youtube channel Masha Create told how to diversify classic nude and what we should learn from Korean women.
Craftsmen can do a lot, but fashion trends are as follows: the simpler your manicure, the better! Any design strives for simplicity and brevity. Monochrome coating is the simplest option, which is now at the peak of popularity. And in this category, several topical coatings can be distinguished: nude, bright shades (feel free to experiment with all Pantone colors of this year: yellow, scarlet, blue, wine, pink, peach, etc.) and metallic. I also like the satin effect manicure (when a shimmer and a metallic shade are applied under a matte top, in the photo this manicure is done in green shades).
If a monochromatic design seems boring to you, but you can't go beyond minimalism, experiment with monochrome. The black and white frames around the nail look great!
Geomerism and abstraction
It can be either strict geometric shapes or deliberately careless abstractions. True, in this case, I advise you to seek help from the masters, because even a careless abstraction is performed using a certain technology. By the way, it is this catwalk trend that is closest to real life.
It's great when you just have a neat manicure and a transparent glossy varnish. If this technique seems too simple to you, supplement it with a small drawing or abstraction. They mix perfectly!
This manicure has no equal for Korean girls. They are more and more boldly gluing large rhinestones on their nails. So much so that nails can compete with the crown of Queen Elizabeth. Massive 3D nail designs are certainly not made for going to work, but for a special occasion and with the right makeup, they will look great! See my version of a similar manicure here.
Letters and Words
This trend is now on the second wave of popularity. Girls have already tried to do such a manicure last year, but this is again relevant. Firstly, it can express your position, and secondly, it looks fun, at ease and draws attention to the nails. Use sliders with captions. For example, Tatoo nails, they are thin, have a high quality print and excellent elasticity. You can glue and peel the lettering as long as you like until you find the desired position on the nails.
Complex textures on the nails
Sparkles, all kinds of dusting, grouting, powders, volumetric effects of the top are used. Glitter looks interesting under a matte top, for example.
