2023 Author: Lynn Laird | [email protected]. Last modified: 2023-05-21 21:10
Have you ever heard the minimalist quote "Less is more!" ? Well, the ultimate nail trend 2021 is proof par excellence! This is the so-called micro French manicure, the effect of which is quite maxi! Easy to achieve even if you have brittle and super chic nails at the same time, this is the nail art of the year! Check out the photo gallery and information below and you will no doubt succumb to its formidable discreet charm!
The micro manicure is the top nail trend of 2021
As you have certainly noticed by now, our minimalist nail art is a kind of French manicure. It is therefore done using the same technique and following the same stages of varnish application. For your information, we put a protective base, we varnish the ends in white, we apply a layer in nude color and we seal with a transparent varnish called top coat for more shine and durability.
How to perform a French micro manicure in the rules of the art
Obviously, the only difference between the classic French method and the micro manicure is in the length of the tips. We file them very short while keeping the maximum of their natural shape to obtain a result as elegant and sober as possible. This nail trend may seem too orthodox, even downright boring to some, but the truth is that this short nail set can be reinvented in many different ways, each more creative than the next …
Micro spiked manicure in color - the nail trend for spring / summer 2021
The first artistic variation of the classic micro manicure is the colored spiked one. Advantageously, this option embraces fresh shades, and delicate neutrals, and warm tones. The same goes for matte, satin or gloss finishes which you can choose from according to your own personal preferences, characteristic style and mood in the given moment.
Whether in pastel or neon, this nail art is totally awesome
Keep in mind, however, that pastel shades work best for your winter manicure, while neon colors adapt beautifully to tanned hand skin in warm weather. Of course, if your sense of taste tells you something else, trust your intuition because the choice of colors is above all a question of individual interpretation and not of standards that must be observed.
Denim blue free ends and boho chic knuckle rings in an ideal symbiosis
Don't worry if you want to try this nail trend but you don't like the natural shape of your plates. Let them grow a little longer and file the free end almond as shown in the photo above. Then apply any color you want to further exaggerate this elegant elongated shape. Your fingers will look a lot thinner than they are!
Metallic details in gold and silver aren't just for jewelry
Here is another frankly sublime nail trend that will certainly be back in 2021! These are metallic varnish accents and metallic nail art decorations. In fact, the silver or gold tips and the 3D metal rivets blend seamlessly with our micro manicure, especially when these have adopted the shape of small crescents applied delicately on the lunulae!
Glitter or metallic varnishes are great for special occasions
Then, liquid metal effect varnishes, gold leaves and glitter, which we prefer especially on festive occasions to give themselves an extra touch of glamor, are just as suitable for perfecting the tips of your trendy micro manicure. This one, in copper color, is combined with a very cute pinkish beige base which makes the final result even more splendid and attractive.
Discreet base and dark tips for a more dramatic effect
The most daring girls can also dare a two-tone micro manicure, or even a spiked in dark color. As you can see by admiring the collage above, the result is quite remarkable! At the same time this twist doesn't require compromising with its elegance and unmatched flirtatious style. Do not forget the transparent finishing varnish so that your nail decoration lasts for days and not hours!
Purple and yellow tips for a superb aesthetic contrast
Take this idea a step further and you will end up with a teasing and hushed two-tone end manicure at the same time! The secret of its great effect is to use complementary colors using the “color block” technique. In other words, combine tones that are on opposite parts of the color wheel to achieve attractive, desired clashes. A nail trend with a thousand faces, right?
