Red flowers manicure design

Bright manicure was invented many thousands of years ago, and we can safely say that the design of nails with red color was one of the first to be invented.

What can I say, if the design of nails with red color was popular long before the appearance of the first varnishes. For the first time they began to paint nails in red and black colors either in Ancient Egypt, or in the same ancient China. True, the ancient Egyptians were more popular with green nail coloring. And about three thousand years ago, Chinese women began to master the art of manicure. And the Chinese too. According to the then ancient laws, only the most noble citizens close to the court of the emperor were allowed (and even supposed) to paint their nails red. And it also meant that the lady did not do manual labor …


It also served as an amulet against evil spirits. The rest for such embellishment could traditionally be executed in Chinese or simply tortured. And already in our era, the red color on the nails became popular among the Egyptians. So, the femme fatale Cleopatra loved crimson and dark cherry colors.

But the Romans used a nail polish made from the fat and blood of animals. It’s easy to guess what color it was…
Further, interest in the beauty of nails faded and arose only during the late Renaissance with its luxurious courtesans, who emphasized their passion and temperament in red.

But among Chinese women, the passion for red lacquer never faded into oblivion: until the very Cultural Revolution, they grew long nails and painted them with red shades.

In the 1930s, the first nail polishes in the modern sense were invented. But their colors were traditional: red, purple, cherry. In those days, the composition of varnishes was not similar to the modern one, the varnish did not last long, but still …

Real nail polish in the modern sense did not appear until the mid-1930s through the efforts of Charles Revson, the director and founder of the Revlon company. Yes, it was a leave-in and water-insoluble nail polish. True, he had an unstable structure, he stayed on his nails for only a couple of days, and the choice of colors was small (only six shades). Exhausted by the global crisis, American women accepted the novelty with great joy. Needless to say, the first shades of varnish were red? But in this case, the chest opened simply: the crisis was not over yet, and red pigments were the cheapest.

Fashionable red manicure

Today, red lacquer is an immortal classic, so you can always beat it. For example, by combining with another classic – French.
This will look more extravagant, but bright. French can be both straight and arched, you can paint only the corners of the nail, etc.

A black and red jacket is also performed: a natural pink shade on the nail plate and red at the tips, and a thin black stripe is drawn along the smile line (see picture)

And on long or extended nails, you can make a red jacket with a pattern. In addition to red lacquer, he will need a white nail pen, nail tweezers, a manicure needle and stickers in the form of gold dollars.

We perform a regular manicure and cover the nails with a base.

We paint the tip of the nail with bright red varnish, not forgetting about the stencils for the jacket.
When everything is dry, we take a white nail pen: with it we draw white dots on the red tip – 3-4 pieces at the smile line.

We do not let them dry and draw silver dots: also at the smile line and also 3-4 pieces.
We don’t let it dry either, we immediately arm ourselves with a manicure needle and draw a thin and smooth line from one white dot to another with it. We do the same with silver dots (see photo).

When everything dries up, the finest hour of tweezers and jewelry comes. On the unpainted part of the nail, at the top right and bottom left, put a small drop of glue. With the help of tweezers, an ornament in the form of a dollar symbol is placed on it.

When everything dries, cover with a colorless varnish. Bright red manicure is ready!

A jacket with a straight smile line, black with red tips, will also turn out to be very effective. Here you don’t even need stencils – just separate the nail with tape. By the way, the classic manicure of the 30-40s with red varnish was moonlit – the hole was not painted over in order to save varnish.

A little later, the pin-up style came into fashion, which can also be reproduced with a manicure with red varnish. In order to match the style, it is enough to apply perfectly even white dots on red nails using a dotter or nail pen.

In order for the red varnish to fit perfectly on the nails, first, the excess is removed from the brush, and then a drop is applied to the middle of the nail, which must be gently spread over all the nail. By the way, the edges of the nail also do not have to be painted over: this way you do not have to wash the varnish from the skin and the nail roller.
