Marble Nails give a sophisticated look to the nails and the addition of colour to them, makes the nail art appear more fun and your client party ready!
Chrome Nails give the nails a shiny, mirror-like finish. Chrome Nails are usually done in metallic colours like gold, silver, grey, etc. The mirror-like finish given to the metallic colours gives the nails a metallic, reflective look. To achieve Chrome Nails, first apply anormal base colour and then top it off with a chrome powder. The layering process gives the effect that the finish on the nails looks like a 3D reflection of light.
Holographic Nails give nails a 3D effect such that when viewed in light, the nails act as a prism and reflect the rainbow coloured look on the flat nail surface. They can be achieved by first applying a coat of the base colour which is then topped with a layer of special powder pigment that consists of microscopic reflective particles. A final coat of gel must be applied on top of the powder layer to seal the holographic nail look. The difference between Holographic Nails and Chrome Nails is that chrome is shinier and doesn’t bring out the rainbow effect.
3D Nails are more than just simple polish. It has embellishments, gems, jewels, flowers, bows, etc lacquered over the nails. This three-dimensional artwork is usually created on acrylic nails. To create the embellishments, coloured acrylic is added to moulds and allowed to dry up and harden.These shaped ornaments are attached to the nail extensions to decorate them.
French nails have been one of the staple trends ever since they first gained popularity in the 1970’s. But in 2022, the staple French manicure sees a twist. French manicures have evolved into two-toned French in 2022. Two-toned French sees not one but two different colours painted at the tip of the nails. Two-toned French variations are seen in all the French Manicure styles like the Slanted Variation, the Deep French, and the Neon-French Twist.
Reversed French Nails
This is just as the name suggests, a French manicure that’s reversed! Instead of coloured nail tips, the Reversed French Nails see colours at the bottom of the nails. A coloured line is formed around the beginning of the nails, along the skin. Another way of doing the reversed French Nails is the ‘Half-Moon Style’. A shape that looks like a half moon is created at the lower part of the nails. The moon shape can either be filled with colour or be left blank with the rest of the nail coloured.
Airbrushed Nails are not painted using a brush but are rather sprayed using an airbrush gun. The Airbrushed Nails have a graffiti or ombre look. It was a huge trend in the 1980’s and 1990’s and had later fallen out of style. In 2021, they made a comeback and have emerged to be one of the biggest nail trends in 2022.
Swirl Nail Art
Swirl Nails have been inspired from the 1960’s retro trend that has returned. These nails have been in trend since 2020 because of their multi-colour, fun look. The look involves drawing some lines on the nails that give a 60’s psychedelic finish. Swirl nails have no rules! The Swirl lines can be of the desired length and thickness. You can use your creativity to make your client’s nails look soothing and fun. The swirls can be achieved by using a detailed brush or painting rough lines which can then be corrected with an acetone soaked brush.
