Manicure was, is and will be. This direction of female beauty is not going to fade away, but only improves every year. New types of varnishes appear, the design is improved and developed. Any female person from time to time wants something new, but not everyone can afford to sign up for a salon. For those who want to be creative on their own, we will tell you how to create a nail design at home. It’s not difficult at all.
On clean and even nails, any manicure will look advantageous. Therefore, preparation is indispensable.
First you need to get rid of the cuticle. To do this, apply an emollient and remove all excess with wire cutters. The second option is hardware removal, in which a tool with a special nozzle grinds the cuticle.
Then we begin to create the shape of the nail. Choose which one you like best and get to work. Remember to make sure that the length of the nail is the same everywhere.
Now it remains only to clean the nails with a brush to remove all the smallest particles that could remain there from the surface of the nail plate. Finally, we grind the surface of the nail to make it smooth.
You can do the so-called European manicure. He, in principle, repeats everything said above, but there is one feature. With this type of manicure, the cuticle is not cut or polished. It is pushed back with an orange stick towards the base of the nail and then removed with a cotton swab or disc.
Well, here are our pens and acquired a neat look. You can start designing.
Choose a design
Now in specialized stores you can find a great variety of all kinds of sparkles, sand, foil, rhinestones and other auxiliary things. With their help, you can create an exclusive design and become the object of a little envy.
When choosing a nail design, try to focus not only on your own preferences, but also on fashion trends. Don’t be afraid to experiment with color and texture. Sometimes the most seemingly impossible things are perfectly combined with each other and emphasize your individuality.
Also, when choosing a design, consider the time of day and year, do not forget about the reason for which we started all this. For example, for an evening out, you can flash with gold or silver. In the winter season, cold tones and drawings with all kinds of stars, snowflakes, snowmen, etc. will look great. In summer, give preference to bright, saturated colors and various flowers.
A few ideas for a simple manicure
New Year, Christmas and just winter
As a basis, as a rule, white and beige colors are used. And then we give free rein to our imagination. You can draw a Christmas tree, an asterisk, candles, and even a face of Santa Claus. The face of Santa Claus will look more spectacular on a blue background. For drawings, it is better to use acrylic paints, and you can draw with improvised tools (a needle, a toothpick).
Drawings with snowflakes are very popular during the New Year holidays. They look amazing when painted with white paint on a silver or blue base. Some people like to draw halves of snowflakes on the edge of the nail or their quarters in the corners of the nail plate.
To go out “in the light” you can add sparkles or rhinestones to the main pattern. By the way, you can cover the entire pattern with a shiny varnish on a transparent basis.
A little unexpected, but very attractive solution. To fulfill this idea, we take thin lace and cut it into small pieces. The pieces you cut out can either repeat the shape of the nail or be an abstract shape. The choice is yours.
Apply pieces of lace to the nails covered with the base base and press well. Make sure that the edges of the pieces do not bulge and do not interfere with us in the future. All this is better when the main layer is not completely dry. Now it remains only to cover the nails with transparent varnish, preferably in two layers.
To create a geometric pattern, you will need several colors of varnish and strips of adhesive tape. The width of the stripes is up to you. We cover the entire nail plate with varnish of any color. Dry in a UV lamp. Then we stick 1-2 strips of adhesive tape the way you like best, and varnish it in a different color. We repeat the procedure as many times as you want. After thoroughly dry the nails in the lamp and remove all strips of adhesive tape.
This type of manicure is available if you have a UV lamp at your disposal. If it is not there, then you will not be able to quickly dry all the layers. Note that with insufficiently dried layers of varnish, you will spoil all your efforts at the moment when you start to remove the tape. The strips will be smeared, and the entire manicure will be sloppy.
Designing nails on your own is a rather exciting and creative process. Don’t be afraid to experiment with color, texture and embellishments. Try, fantasize and you will definitely succeed!
