Have you already ventured to try on a rainbow on your nails?
Nail designers have made it easier for us to choose. Now you can come to the salon and not waste time thinking in what color to paint your nails. Want blue, green, pink and yellow? Please take everything at once. The main summer trend is gradient.
But the actual design is not the gradient we are used to. Previously, the master applied 2 colors to one nail and blurred the boundaries. The result was a smooth and gentle transition, which is now, unfortunately, out of fashion.
The new gradient option is not limited to just two colors. To complete the design, the master uses from 5 to 10 different shades. And then he applies varnish alternately on each finger.
There are many gradient manicure options, and it's easy to get confused. Therefore, we have collected the most stylish ideas for you.
Gradient in pastel colors
American designer Betina Goldstein is very fond of such a manicure. She uses Dior Vernis varnishes in muted shades: lily of the valley, lilac, dusty pink, coffee.
To repeat the manicure, you can use any other color combination. The main thing is that they differ from each other by 1-2 tones.
It is possible not to select colors of similar shades. If your soul asks for brightness, feel free to combine the whole rainbow on your nails at once! And this will be a gradient too.
The trend even made it to the podium. At the United Colors of Benetton show, models wore rainbow manicure on their hands. An interesting highlight was the “cost” of each marigold in euros. It was painted over the varnish in white.
For more restrained fashionistas, there is a gradient option. The master can only paint the tips of the nails, while using 2 colors on one finger.
You can also add stripes at the base, sides or center of the nail. Don't forget that geometry is still trending. Therefore, such a manicure will be doubly relevant.
Gradient with design
If colored nails are not enough for you, you can diversify your manicure with something else. Just paint over the varnish or add some embellishments. Nails will look unusual and impressive.
