Fashionable manicure in 2018
Manicure is one of the areas of beauty that you can use to change your image and mood every day. Or, if you resort to persistent gel polish, then once or twice a month.
In a short period of time, you can try on the image of a fatal seductress, covering your nails with scarlet varnish, be a street-style star, make a manicure in a minimalist style, and show a commitment to the classics, making a strict French manicure.
In such an abundance of styles and options, it does not take long to become confused, and besides, the fashion for one or another nail design is very fleeting. For example, complex acrylic painting is a thing of the past; in 2018, minimalistic designs, abstraction and visual effects came to replace it.
We will also encounter this year's painting, but in this genre everything is simple, concise, rather schematic than highly artistic. So that you can easily choose a fashionable manicure 2018, we offer you 9 trendy, non-dull ideas of nail design.
The most vivid and juicy ideas with combinations of colors and techniques are perfect for the summer of 2018; more discreet, pastel designs and art will be relevant all year.
Of all the symbols and signs, it was the hearts that became one of the main trends in nail art in 2018. Neat hearts on several nails can be painted with varnish or acrylic, or you can choose ready-made stickers (stickers) for nails.
The laconic “hearty” design using black and neutral beige lacquer looks best. Hearts in black are drawn on a light base in the middle, or closer to the tip of the nail. Choose a light base in the tone of your skin - gray-beige, pale pink, coffee. Black lacquer can be left glossy, but a matte finish is also worth it. In this case, the manicure will look softer.
In addition, in 2018, you can safely combine hearts with other symbols and geometric shapes - circles, dots, triangles, stripes and zigzags.
All nails - different varnish
Multi-colored nails - one of the most original and beautiful trends of this year. Be careful, this is not about bright combinations of the most unexpected colors, but about carefully designed pastel combinations.
For a fashionable manicure, you can choose different shades of the same color, from dark to light, or different colors, but equally light and light.The most relevant pastel colors in 2018 will be gray-blue, lilac, cream and coffee beige, soft pink and gray. These colors can be combined with each other, creating an individual, unique design.
Use 3 or 4 shades at once: 2 colors are a standard combination, 5 is overkill. Such a gentle manicure, if desired, can be supplemented with rhinestones, or add one or two textures to different colors. For example, use 2 glossy colors and one lacquer with glitter, holographic or matte effect.
Foil in the nail art is used for a long time. In the trend is still mirror and "metal" nails. This effect is achieved thanks to the finest nail foil. In 2018, the leaders of nail design propose using foil in a new format: strips of foil are in fashion.
Thin metal stripes can be arranged in a chaotic manner on one or two nails, depict zigzags or cross. Thicker strips are better to use on one nail, and one or two thin ones can be glued on each nail. You can imitate French manicure with shiny stripes, or lay out a nail hole with foil - both options look very stylish.
Manicurists advise you to choose vertical stripes for long and medium nails, and not to use thin horizontal stripes on short wide nails. The best option for any length and shape of the nail will be a zigzag pattern.
Another actual "striped" design, but in this case, the stripes are painted with varnish or acrylic. The principle is the same as with the foil, although the picture gives more room for action than stickers. So, the drawn stripes on the nail can be very much, and they collectively resemble artistic shading.
The fashion is also minimal design: you can draw chaotic thin stripes; This design looks especially good in simple avant-garde colors: white, black, very pale pink or blue. Also, stripes can be used to depict complex geometric shapes: several triangles, “herringbone” sprouting from one another, crossed triangles, arrows, parallel straight lines, etc.
