Today you will not surprise anyone with the usual neat coating of nails. In manicure studios they are ready to offer you the most popular types of nail designs from social networks. But be careful: one of the new trends does not look the same on all hands!
We have no doubt that every time you come to a manicure, you are faced with a difficult choice: get off with a quick one-color coating or allocate another half hour and a couple of hundred rubles for the master to conjure over your nails and make an interesting drawing. And the second option often wins: after all, the usual monochrome cannot but get bored.
Some 10 years ago, manicurists could only offer you simple lines, butterflies or flowers on the nails. But with the advent of social networks, nail design manifested itself in all its glory and turned into a real work of art. However, the classics have not been forgotten either. Who would have known that in our time the main trend will again become French manicure, which for a long time was considered almost bad manners and said goodbye exclusively to brides?
Of course, time has changed French manicure. Now the white edging of the nail is far from a prerequisite. All colors of the rainbow are used. Or rather, an even more extensive palette of shades in the manicure salon.
Everything would be fine, but sometimes the masters (or are the persistent clients themselves?) Clearly miss the mark with the choice of color for a similar type of manicure. Such examples instantly become the property of discussion among Internet users and even grow to the point of anti-trends.
This is precisely the fate that the work of the ordinary manicurist Katherine from the UK deserved. Back in 2020, the girl published a French manicure with dark green edging on her blog. He became a "hit" of discussions by accident and a little later won the title of "Gardener's Nails".
Indeed, the shade of the edging is chosen rather gloomy and does not match the skin tone of the hands. But it would be wrong to call “gardener's nails” a single mistake of only one master from Great Britain. We found similar works on the Russian Internet. There is a demand for such a manicure, and quite impressive. See how it's worth and not worth doing!
Black is an unchanging classic. But a black jacket is a dangerous choice, which without the necessary texture looks sloppy and dirty. Especially when the rest of the nail stays matte and doesn't support that dark edging at all. The situation is getting better with gloss. And, most importantly, cleaner. But to be honest, it's still far from the wow effect.
The dark blue tip and matte stock are also a controversial option, which is only suitable for "white-handed women" and will be lost on tanned skin. It's good that summer is already far away, and you don't have to worry about it!
But gloss also does not always effectively complement the picture. It's about the intensity of the shade. Any dark color at the tip of the nail looks odd and requires additional accents.
And here are the accents that can turn the "gardener's nails" into beauty. It is worth adding a couple of lines to the base of the nail and even the dark green "garden" color becomes noble. And if the edging itself is not rounded, but more curly, the manicure looks even more interesting, and of any shade.
Another winning variation on colored French manicure is neon. Such shades initially do not look natural, which means they will not raise doubts about what is wrong with your nails. And by the way, they can be combined with a “bare” nail or matte finish. Here, on the contrary, you need to be careful with the main color of the nail plate: if it is too bright in relation to the skin tone and the neon color itself, your hands will look overwhelmed.
If you are still in love with both green and French manicure, the effect of "gardener's dirty nails" can be avoided in another way. It will require a little more attention from you, but the result is definitely worth it. Ask the nail technician to paint the tips of your nails in different shades of green: from light with a milky undertone to the richest of the palette, in the color of spring foliage. Personally, we have already saved this example for ourselves in order to show it to our master at the next manicure! And you?
