The envy of this season? A rainbow manicure that inspires femininity and good humor. To achieve this, a panoply of bold colors, in ultra-shiny textures that magically embellish your hands with their light effects. A color chart is available to you: carmine red, fuchsia, royal blue or the timeless coral which remains the favorite summer color for women.
The most daring of you will dare a solar yellow or mimosa to wear in French instead of the traditional white line or on a single nail to boost a pastel green or lilac varnish. Trendy, "pantone" gradations are also displayed if you play the right chords ... tangerine / red, turquoise / navy or light pink / candy pink. On a single nail, in two-color French, sailor style or for a super pepsy effect, in a jumble on each nail… Whatever you want, always stay in the same range of colors and let your creativity speak.
Pro tip: save your nails a few centimeters
Easy, if you choose the Italian laying technique. The goal: on short and rounded nails (this lengthens them more than the square shape), to approach the contours without ever touching the cuticles and making sure to leave a very light "corridor" of 0.5 to 1 mm from each side. By optical effect, the nails then appear longer and thinner.
