Manicure 2021: fashion trends and novelties
Be fashionable and stylish to the tips of your nails! Maybe? Sure. After all, Fashion Weeks give us not only new models of clothes and shoes, but also new manicure products. One has only to take a closer look at the models’ nails on the catwalk.
So what kind of manicure will be in fashion for the spring-summer 2021 season?
Trendy nails in the spring and summer of 2021 will be either bold and extravagant, or as natural as possible. The first category is the trendy manicure design that Christian Cowan has demonstrated. The black nails, which seem to be ready to become an off-season trend, were decorated with rhinestones and shiny decor, and for completeness, they gave the long nails a pointed shape resembling a samurai dagger. But the brands Chanel and Fendi offer a more acceptable option – a simple black manicure on short nails.
The hot pink shade Bubblegum is one of the fashion trends next season. A splash of color could be seen at Fendi and Tom Ford. Stylists suggest combining it with lipstick or (which will be relevant in a mask mode) with bright accessories or clothes.
The brands Balmain and Alberta Ferretti demonstrated the ideal formula for a nude manicure: square or round nails plus a light flesh-colored varnish. This version of a fashionable manicure for short nails always looks elegant, concise and natural. And in the summer, it will also go well with a light tan.
The most fashionable colors in next spring’s manicure are delicate pastel shades of pink, yellow and blue. They personify our hopes for the future and the desire for coziness, comfort and tenderness. Such a fashionable manicure was presented in the photo in the Fendi and LaQuan Smith lookbooks.
Classics and laconicism do not always look strict and conservative. A perfect example of this is the red manicure. Designers Fendi and Dolce & Gabbana opted for a bright scarlet lacquer to accentuate the graceful silhouettes of fashionable clothes in different styles.
Delicate spring pastels will become brighter and juicier by summer. It is noteworthy that such colors were offered by brands in Milan, while London and New York leaned towards neutral nude manicure and “naked” nails. Almost all colors of the rainbow could be seen on the nails of the models Charlotte Knowles, Mugler, LaQuan Smith.
The most shocking and daring manicure novelties were offered by nail stylists at the Chromat show. Models’ long and sharp nails were covered with different colors of polishes and decorated with transparent volumetric drops.
For fans of manicure with drawings, stylists Giambattista Valli and Richard Malone offer their vision of this popular design: abstraction and minimalism will be popular in spring and summer. So every fashionista can make a fashionable drawing on her nails – whatever you draw (even if the hand trembles and the line goes not where it was planned), it will still be fashionable and relevant.
Gold leaf, chrome effect and metallic varnishes with shimmer will also be very popular next spring and summer. Imagine how they will play and shine when the sunlight hits them! You will get not only a beautiful manicure, but also a shiny bow – both direct and figurative. Christian Cowan reminds of this.
