Actual length and shape
This year many short nails of square or oval shape, loved by many, do not go out of fashion. The combination of this length and shape gives the hands a beautiful well-groomed look and is suitable for everyday life. In addition, this shape and length is optimal for any manicure in any color design. Long nails of acute shape do not lose popularity.
For those who love something exceptional, in 2021, nail designers offer several new forms of long nails:
- pointe shoes;
- a circle;
If you can make the traditional forms of a square or oval yourself, then it is better to give the above forms to the nails in the salon.
Manicure (novelties 2021) gel polish is as close as possible to natural, natural tones. Gentle pastel shades and nude shades are chosen by most women, since such a manicure will suit any look and atmosphere.
In 2021, designers also prefer dark green with malachite and emerald shades, deep blue, red, purple. The so-called “berry” shades are also popular – plum, raspberry, ripe lingonberry color.
The undoubted trend of 2021 is shades of silver and gold.
New Design 2021
Manicure (novelties 2021) gel polish will surprise with unexpected contrasting combinations and textures. One of the trends of 2021 is volumetric manicure or 3D manicure, it looks good on both long and short nails.
Volumetric textures are created either using polymer clay, both in the color of the main varnish and in a contrasting shade, or give volume through the use of beads, stones, rhinestones and small flowers.
The most popular 3D manicure designs in 2021 are:
- knitted patterns;
- fur, lace and lace patterns;
- voluminous flowers and leaves;
- abstract motifs;
- imitation of animal skins.
Another novelty is a wet manicure gel varnish that resembles delicate watercolors. It is simple to execute, so you can perform it even at home. The master usually uses contrasting colors that are applied immediately to the still dry base layer. Thanks to this method, colors are bizarrely mixed, forming interesting transitions and patterns.
Manicure (novelties 2021) gel polish in the European version – Bubble design, reminiscent of the shape and color of chewing gum balls.
The master achieves this effect by building up gel polish layer by layer and giving the nails a spherical shape. Not every girl agrees to such experiments, but for those who are used to shocking, this design is just a gift.
Matte manicure is one of the common designs of 2021. It looks neat, restrained, but at the same time festive. Such a manicure can be performed by a master in any salon, and a person who is not involved in manicure and nail design professionally.
Matte coating can be done in several ways:
- applying varnishes with a matting coating;
- using a top coating that “erases” the glossy gloss from any varnish;
- gently, without damaging the nail plate, cutting off the top layer of gel polish.
The matte finish is suitable for both short and long nails of any shape. Also, manicure can be performed in one color or with the addition of drawings, rhinestones, shine. Designers advise, choosing a matte finish with drawings, give preference to simple images in a minimalist style. Bright large and complex drawings are best done on one or two fingers.
An interesting option for such a manicure is a matte manicure with a glossy accent, when a glossy finish is applied to the nail plate coated with a matte gel polish in the color of the main varnish or contrasting.
Lunar manicure does not lose its popularity in 2021. The design got such a name because the area of the nail plate, called the lunula and located near the cuticle, is painted in some color and becomes like a crescent.
Despite the apparent simplicity, this design is especially loved by fashionistas, as it fits almost any look and makes it possible to combine other techniques in one manicure.
Manicure designers in 2021 represent a large number of varieties of French manicure that will suit a strict office worker.
And a young girl who loves experiments, and a woman in old age:
- Classic – using transparent varnish for the base, and white for the tip of the nail.
- Color – using two shades of contrasting color.
- Inverted – with a shift of the line from the tip of the nail to the cuticle.
- Asymmetric – line offset in any direction.
- Deep jacket – with a shift of the line to the base of the nail.
- Geometric – using additional lines and shapes on the tip of the nail.
- Gradient – with decorating the line with a color transition.
- Marble – the decoration of the entire nail or tip with a texture resembling a stone.
- Vintage – the use of craquelure varnish on the tip of the nail, allowing you to give the so-called “antique effect.”
- Combined – when using French and other types of manicure together.
- Twist-French – the use of several colors on the tip of the nail.
In 2021, the traditional jacket has changed so much that designers propose to use adhesive tape instead of stencils for manicure so that the tip of the nail is not traditionally oval, but square or triangular.
Broken glass effect manicure looks fu
turistic and seems complicated. However, the designers claim that there is nothing complicated in the performance of this manicure and even a novice master will be able to complete it. The most important thing – with this design, the pattern on each nail will be unique, and you should not try to achieve any uniformity.
To create such a design, a holographic film is used, which is applied to the base. At home, to create a broken glass manicure, any pieces of foil will do.
To give the manicure more unusual effects, you can use multi-colored foil and cellophane with a mirror effect, then the resulting pattern will resemble amazing and unique images of a kaleidoscope.
This season, such a manicure with geometric shapes of “broken glass” is extremely popular, and pieces of the film can be completely different and uneven. Designers quite often use this type of design along with French.
One of the most luxurious types of nail design is a manicure with rhinestones. It is important to choose the right amount of rhinestones and balance the design with color. One extra rhinestone – and a manicure from a luxurious one will turn into bad taste.
Recently, the design with rhinestones has moved from a festive evening manicure to everyday. It’s all about the size and volume of crystals used and the color of the base gel polish.
For rhinestones and any stones, dark colors are most often used as substrates, which emphasize the beauty and brilliance of rhinestones. In the 2021 season, the trend will be wine shades from red to burgundy, saturated blue, turning into ink, as well as shades of green such as emerald and malachite.
Wedding manicure with rhinestones is often done in monochrome, while choosing gentle, pastel colors. Manicure with rhinestones looks bold and spectacular based on a combination of bright contrasting tones. Often masters combine rhinestones and a jacket or moon manicure.
For short nails
Owners of short and very short nails can refuse to build – this season short nails at the peak of popularity. A manicure for short nails is presented in the nail industry in a variety of options – from monophonic gel polish to a French design that looks on small nails no worse than on long ones.
Geometric motifs that are associated with different ethnic traditions are popular for manicure on short nails of rectangular and square shape . Often do drawings on short nails, including thematic: New Year’s, fruit and flower.
Delicate gradient and ombre
Among the novelties of manicure gel varnish in 2021 remains one of the fashion trends gradient design, ombre or stretch. The options for this design are endless, as well as shades of color. Someone prefers a game of shades of one tone in such a manicure, someone bold contrasting combinations – any of the gradient options looks unusual and looks equally beautiful on any length and shape of the nails.
You can apply the gradient not only traditionally horizontally, but also vertically, diagonally. You can also vary color accents – from light to dark at the base of the nail, or vice versa – from dark tips to a light base.
The ombre design looks impressive with more than two shades. Rainbow manicure is very popular this year.
The marine theme remains in the fashion trends of the nail industry, and if last year blue-and-white nail patterns, stripes and anchors were popular, then a shell-like texture is becoming fashionable. Such a voluminous manicure is usually performed in one color, but sometimes it can differ by one or two tones.
The best colors for this design are pink, beige, white, mint or peach, in the form of such a manicure it looks better on the nails of a square or oval shape. Among the masters of manicure, the rule is accepted – to make “shells” on only a few nails, combining this type of design with moon, matte or French on the remaining nails, but in 2021 it is fashionable to apply such a design to all nails.
Imitation of the texture of semiprecious stones and minerals is one of the trends of 2021. The cat-eye design, which has already become quite popular, is an excellent confirmation of this. To create such a manicure, special gel varnishes saturated with metal particles, as well as a magnet, under the influence of which interesting textures are formed, are used.
The advantage in this type of manicure in dark shades of gel polish is saturated blue, green, brown, dark red. With such a design, inlaid with rhinestones and drawings in contrasting colors look good.
Many Western stars have already appreciated the advantage of manicure made with foil. Firstly, such a manicure will last longer, and secondly – it does not harm the nails so much. To create a design, only specialized foil is suitable.
The simplest “metallic” manicure option is to cover the nail plate with a foil of all or several nails; in other versions, the foil can be applied to the tips of the nails, simulating a French manicure, or on some areas of the nails in any order on an existing gel polish base.
