TOP 10 SPRING MANICURE IDEAS
Nails can be true pieces of art, can’t they? If you want your manicure to be fashionable, it has to refer to paintings, nature and modern technology. Are you bored with classic red hybrid gel polish? Do you need a break from black and white? Check my ideas for spring manicure. I’m going to test them all with Provocater nailpolishes.
1. CHEWING GUM-LIKE SPACE DUST
Pink has been dominating the catwalks for many seasons now. It appeared in the SS Balenciaga, Valentino and Celine collections. Sweet powder candy like shades are also a total hit when it comes to nails, especially when they’re combined with an original… texture, like “Space Dust”, available in Provocater’s stock. I combine pastel dust with a patterned miniskirt or a Chanel style tweed jacket.
2. MONDRIAN STYLE
Modern Piet Mondrian paintings like manicure is an inspiration that I saw on an Opening Ceremony catwalk. How to achieve it? All you need to do is paint graphic stains, using colors that do not match (black, red, yellow, and blue, for example). Relax – Provocater offers as many as 90 shades, so you have a lot to choose from 😀 Such nails will look great combined with a color blocking look (HERE you’ll find what I have in mind ;) ).
Orange is the second (right after pink) hottest color of the season. It’s never been so in as it is now. Paint all your nails juicy mandarin, and increase the temperature by red (on one nail, for example) or contrast it with cool white. Wear it with all looks, even with jeans. If you’re a typical DIY girl, try do do your nails… at home! You can get a professional but user friendly Provocater starter kit!
4. CHAMELEON LIKE
When you were a child, did you dream about a ring with a stone which color changes according to your mood or sunlight? Now you can totally achieve that on your… nails. Provocater offers three shades of hybrid nailpolishes (88, 89, 90) that dynamically change their color depending on the temperature 😉 If you get bored easily, it’s definitely a choice for you 😀
5. PRECIOUS METALS
Do you remember the spectacular Gigi Hadid’s manicure at the MET gala? Metellic shine is still in – now it’s worn in a more fresh and sparkling edition. You’ll achieve such an outcome by using a special Provocater dust. Ready for brave solutions? Apply it on white nails and wear it with a metallic purse and sandals.
6. A NEW DIMENSION OF FRENCH
A classic French manicure? A nail painted with half-transparent pastel nailpolish and nailendings touched by a bit of white. There’s no place for boredom this season – hands need to amaze and get everyone’s attention 😉 Have a regular French manicure done in a bit more original version. Apply some beige and white nailpolish, but not horizontally – go for a vertical version (use paper tape to help you). Provocater polishes have a nice and thick formula that makes your nails perfectly covered – only one layer will make you totally satisfied 😉
7. NAILS IN A FRAME
How about saying goodbye to old habits and going for something totally new and dazzling? 😉 One of my favorite and original ideas is a contrasting or metallic frame around a fair nail. A combination of pastel peach with indigo or beige with gold – totally a must have! If you crave for a WOW effect, combine the polish with a shiny dust.
8. DISCO STYLE: HOLO EFFECT
Is holo effect still a new thing for you? Make up for it asap! There’s a great chance this season, as a rainbow shiny nail is a total hit of the season. I’m going to tease a little here and wear them with hippie skirts. Holo effect is totally new in Provocater’s collection! 😉
9. MODERN OMBRE
Make-up artists and hairdressers are totally amazed by sensual ombre. Now it’s time for nail artists to show what they can do. Such a manicure can be done in two ways: paint each nail with a darker shade of the same nailpolish, or go for a spring 3.2 Phillip Lim fashion show like effect. Models wore silver nails that look as if it was rubbed into snow white polish. Tres chic!
10. BLING, BLING
It’s commonly known that not only rings and bracelets adorn a womans’ hand, but also… the manicure. Apply base first (Base Hard with vitamin E by Provocater will protect the nail from damage and make the nailpolish last longer), then paint your nails with hybrid nailpolish, and glue some shiny stickers on top. It’s a great option not only for the evening! Such nails can be easily worn on a daily basis as well, teamed with a regular jacket.
