French nail design
French manicure celebrates its 39th anniversary this year, but it still remains popular among many girls. The technology of its application remains unchanged, but the palette of colors for French manicure includes new shades with every year that passes. Today, we can have classic French manicure (with white nail tips), experiment with bright colors, and try a trendy nail design with rhinestones and sequins.
Caviar manicure is suitable for those who like everything new and unusual. This nail art is also called bead nail design because glass beads are the only material needed for its application.
The technology of its application is very simple: without waiting for the nail polish to dry, the nails should be immersed in beads, prepared in advance, and then covered with a top coating.
This design can be used on all the nails or only on a few of them. Caviar manicure is a perfect solution for designing short nails, and it is easy to make at home.
Gradient manicure, or Ombre manicure, is another trend of the fall-winter 2015 season. To achieve the effect of smooth transition from dark to light colors, use a sponge.
Color solutions for this nail art are countless! To select a harmonious combination, one should use completely contrasting and related contrasting colors.
Popular length and shape of nails
There is no universal shape that is suitable for the creation of nail art. It is individual, just as the nail design, which is chosen according to your desire and mood.
In total, there are 5 nail shapes: rounded, oval, square, almond-shaped, and pointed. The most topical shape of the nails in fall-winter 2015 is short rounded nails.
To implement some bold design ideas, the length of your nails is sometimes not enough. In this case, artificial nails will help; besides, any design will last longer on them.
Hottest manicure colors in 2015
The range of colors for nail design is very wide this season. The most fashionable fall color is the shade of strong Sicilian wine, Marsala.
The ladies who prefer classic French manicure should not worry: pastel colors of the nude palette are still relevant, ranging from beige to pale pink. Bright and creative personalities will find eccentric shades of metal ideal.
Nail design techniques
In total, there are 3 nail design techniques that will help your manicurist fulfill the most daring ideas, be it Chinese painting, a bright picture or a volumetric pattern.
Planar design is suitable for those who love to create real masterpieces on their nails. It will help design your nails with watercolors and acrylic paints or even use the Chinese painting method! Besides, this technique includes nail design with different stickers.
Aquarium nail design
Artificial nails fans should remember the name of another design technique – aquarium nail design. While applying this nail design, glitter, sequins and various textiles are used. All materials are laid inside the nail while creating your future design, regardless of what type of artificial nails you chose – gel or acrylic. Once the nails are completely modeled and adjusted, the selected design is painted on top of them.
3D nail design is yet another technique. Its name was chosen deliberately because you can create a real volumetric pattern on your nails with the help of acrylic sculpturing, various elements and decorations. As a result, you will have a real blooming flower or a prominent 3D pattern on your nails.
Any fantastic nail design, invented by you and brilliantly realized by your manicurist, can easily be spoilt because of ungroomed cuticles or dry skin. For this reason, be sure to get a manicure before you select the original nail art for your nails. Otherwise, even the most creative and sophisticated design will not please the eye.
