Do you want an elaborate but refined and discreet manicure? The “low nail” is made for you.
If you are a fan of French manicures and, conversely, you don’t like (or get tired of) the classic red nail polish, extravagant manicures like water marble, you will love the “low nail”. Less is more.
LOW NAIL: AN ELABORATE BUT… DISCREET MANICURE!
In 2014, a manicure stood out and is still popular today: the “low nail”. Oh yes ! No need for flashy and extravagant colors to stand out. On the contrary, the low nail does good in a world where social networks give pride of place to nail art.
Kylie Jenner, yet little known for her discretion and elegance, is one of the first followers (to fully appreciate, just close your eyes on the length of her nails).
THE LOW NAIL SUMMER VERSION
In summer, now is the time to wear white fingernails. A low nail manicure that is sure to have an effect on golden skin. But on condition that the nail polish is well applied: base then 2 homogeneous coats of varnish so that the result is opaque.
One of the first brands to bet on this shade? Essie. “White is one of my most precious shades, the pristine mirror of snow in its purest form,” explains Essie Weingarten, founder of the Essie brand in 1981.
THE LOW NAIL WINTER VERSION
No more white in winter, on pale skin, the result would be anything but elegant. In winter, this manicure trend is achieved with varnishes in nude, soft, neutral or even pastel shades. The star colors of the low nail? Beige, powder pink, light gray and all the cool pastel shades. The watchwords of this manicure are “discretion”, “wisdom” and “delicacy”.
ADD A TOUCH OF MADNESS TO HER LOW NAIL MANICURE
Are you really addicted to nail art or do you want to give your low nail a little crazy? Add sophistication to your “low nail” manicure with worked nail art: sequins, gilding, refined designs, a touch of bright color (sparingly), polka dots or even graphic shapes.
A nail art to be made on a nail for example to play the jewel touch of this manicure.
We recommend that you use the adequate manicure and pedicure set to take care of your nails before varnish your nails.
