Manicure can either become the main highlight of a beauty image, or irrevocably spoil it. With which nail designs it is better not to experiment once again – we have collected anti—rating options in our material.
A well-groomed and aesthetic image consists of many little things. Manicure is one of its main components. However, in the nail art segment, in addition to trends, there are also anti-trends that can make even the most refined bow cheaper and vulgar. What kind of manicure should you forget if you want nails to fit any outfit and not spoil the image? We have compiled a list of anti-trends together with stylist and makeup artist Marina Gutorova.
The most obvious anti—trend that never changes is unkempt hands, broken or badly overgrown nails covered with gel polish more than 3 weeks ago. You need to take care of your nails regularly, and if this is not possible, it is better to temporarily abandon the use of gel polish.
A couple of years ago, long, sharply sharpened nails went out of fashion. This form is called cat claws, or stilettos (a piercing cold weapon, a dagger of Italian origin with a straight cross and a thin and narrow blade). In the barbecue season, such skewers can easily replace cutlery, but in everyday life they are extremely impractical, unsafe and generally look tasteless.
A scattering of rhinestones, voluminous stucco decorations, nail applications, spikes and piercings, which the beauties enjoyed so much 5 years ago, are now hopelessly outdated. Do not waste time creating a complex design. Even if you do a manicure in an expensive salon, such a design will look cheap.
If you are over 14 years old, you should not do a manicure with the image of Winnie the Pooh and Cheburashka. Such characters on the nails give the image of infantile and visually cheapen it, unless, of course, you have a themed party. And this despite the fact that such a manicure is more expensive, because to depict a recognizable hero on each finger is really the art and work of a master.
Nails with an extension of the free edge look unaesthetic and even rude, which does not fit in with the naturalness and neatness that everyone is striving for today. Of the advantages — this shape of nails resembles fins and in the swimming season can only accelerate your swim in the pool or in the sea .
Long, visually resembling pointe nails with a horizontally sawn tip are also nail-moveton. Try to avoid this form if you want to look immaculate.
It is still popular today, so you should not completely discount it. However, it is also not worth applying a mother-of-pearl or mirror coating on all 10 nails, especially in one color. This is 100% anti-trend. Look for the golden mean. Try to combine the rub with a solid color, with a matte design, if necessary, add glitter to the nail art, but without fanaticism.
About 10 years ago, exquisite lace nail art was at the peak of popularity. Fashionistas displayed intricate patterns on long and short nails, trying to emphasize their sophistication and femininity. Many brides complemented their image with lace nail design. And often they really did it.
However, today the fashion for this design has passed. Lace now seems boring, intrusive and morally outdated. In 2022, these anti-trends can be replaced with concise dots, horizontal and vertical stripes. Such a manicure will definitely meet the current nail agenda.
Classic French manicure
A French jacket is an eternal classic, as is a red manicure. But it seems that the fashionistas gradually began to get tired of her. The white smile line of the nail and the base, as close as possible to the natural shade, attract less and less attention. Increasingly, nail masters are encouraged to turn to French manicure with colored shades, which is also, in general, not bad. Also today, a creatively designed smile line and a French jacket made in gradient technique are on trend.
This design has not been widely used, but has already managed to fall into the category of anti-trends. The pile coating looks unaesthetic and does not shine with practicality. Therefore, even if you want to experiment and make an unusual design, you should choose another option.
The key to a beautiful manicure is well—groomed hands. Therefore, at any time of the year, you should not neglect cleansing and moisturizing the skin. Use scrubs, oils, masks and creams so that it is perfectly silky and retains its youthful appearance for a long time.
Try to use gloves when washing dishes with your hands, because cleansers not only corrode the grease from the dishes, but also dry the skin of your hands very much. And always remember — the simpler, the more elegant. The optimal length of the nails is medium or short, the shape is not sharp. Moreover, the universal design fits best into the everyday image.
If you do not want to go with a simple transparent coating, choose classic colors. The actual shades are burgundy, gray, peach, all nude tones, red, black and even white.
