So we propose you an article about nail art easy to realize and perfectly corresponding to the fashion 2017. Discover what are the colors and the reasons to privilege currently and how to make his own manicure at home!
The first good news when talking about trend manicure 2017 is that long nails are definitely in the past! Farewell, greedy greenhouses, hello, nails short well maintained and super chic! The simple manicure with free edges filed in rounded square, oval or almond are in the wind and so much the better! Whether natural or decorated with an easy and simple nail art, short nails are much easier to maintain than “claws” without even mentioning their enormous aesthetic advantage.
Then, in spring and summer, there is usually a penchant for fresh colors, intense, even absolutely flashy. In 2017 the tones are less daring than normal, but still youthful, charged with positive and generous emotions in a good mood. As you will see for yourself, our current easy nail art ideas include mostly graphic minimalist designs, many natural shades, some pastel shades and very few bright shades.
There are some exceptions that only confirm the rule, essentially speaking of the plain or two-colored manicure. In the few cases where she uses canary yellow, tangerine or azure, it is without frills or useless detail. Fortunately, this predilection for simplistic designs blends perfectly with the idea of easy nail art that can be done by oneself. Anyway, it is better to keep the colorful palm designs for the holidays and stay sober at the office.
Nail art easy 2017- graphic negative space trend
First, a trend 2017 that is needed with full force is the manicure of negative space, English- “negative space nails”. In fact, it is an easy and fast nail art technique that is based on the principles of aesthetic contrast. And while it sounds too complex when you try to describe it, it’s a simple and undemanding approach. After looking at the pictures in the next gallery, you glasses that the method is elemental once the idea is grasped.
The purpose of this easy but impressive nail air is to create apparent “bare” areas on the nail tablet. The resulting segments without varnish can be obtained in several different ways however the simplest is with sticky strips. Of course, you can use a striping tape for this purpose, especially if you bet on thin lines. On the picture above, you can admire an easy black and white “negative space” nail art made especially in this way.
To make major lines or various geometric figures, you can quietly use pieces of ordinary tape. It works just as well and the resulting drawings are more visible thanks to the larger surface that it covers. Easy nail art idea 2017: try rectangles, chevrons, triangles etc. for a super trendy and exclusive appearance.
Black and white wedding is another classic option and currently very fashionable at the same time. For example, the easy geometric and graphical nail art above looks sophisticated and a bit playful at a time. This magnificent effect is achieved through the marriage of non-colors that will never go out of fashion and an “innovative” technique that uses the best and even highlights the negative space.
Purple negative space manicure and two-tone manicure ideas
Naturally, we must not forget any color, because we talk about easy nail art for spring and summer. All pastel shades are perfectly suited for this time of year, as well as some bolder and adventurous tones. So here are 2 superb two-color techniques, just as simple and attractive as the one based on negative space.
The easy nail art above is in light pink and black, but this cool design can be achieved using any other pair of complementary colors of the color wheel or simply contrasting tones. We begin, as always, with a base of protection and then – a simple two-tone manicure in colors of his choice. It does not matter if the tones will be arranged vertically (as is the case), horizontally or diagonally. The line between the two does not have to be perfectly straight either, so not too much precision. Then, we make peas with the light color on the dark background, close to the central axis, and dark spots on the light background by arranging them “checkered” (it does not matter if they straddle a little). Let dry well, apply a top coat and that’s it!
The second easy two-color nail art technique that we would like to introduce to you is called “swirl”, or “swirl”. The initial steps are the same, namely: application of basic coat and realization of ordinary two-tone manicure. However be careful- you have to act quickly and swirl before the varnish starts to dry! Use a toothpick and draw a spiral starting at the center of the nail where the two colors meet. Once satisfied with the result, allow it to dry well and apply the topcoat.
Easy nail art with a matte, shiny, pearly or glittery finish?
The following easy nail art idea cleverly plays not only with soft colors, but also with gorgeous textures. Admittedly, this two-tone manicure in noble marsala and fabulous pink beige is pretty aesthetic as it is, but the 2 mismatched finishes make it more attractive. When one can not decide which texture to choose, putting together the glossy and matte elements in the context of a unique design is super attractive and perfectly matches current trends.
And if your glossy polish does not have enough punch, you can still draw “false-reflections” on the nails. Like the pop art manicure, which became super popular a few years ago, the easy nail art above takes advantage of tailored shades, superimposed and strategically placed, to create the optical illusion of relief and especially of extraordinary brilliance.
In fact, 2017 is quite liberal in terms of finishing textures and does not negate glitter either. We then continue with some easy and glamorous nail art ideas that make the most of sparkling parcels. The charming manicure above exploits several techniques and textures disassembled at once, but does so with great success. We’ve got an amazing marriage of pearly beige polish, absolutely magical golden sequins and even teasing black poles for a 100% winning result.
Easy nail art ideas with glitter, pyramids and rhinestones
This is another manicure based on mixed techniques that will put the eyes of admirers of sophisticated designs. The matt garnet varnish proves the background par excellence to fully reveal the ornamental capabilities of the sequined glitter Essie. The trick that guarantees the success of this easy and admirable nail art is that the “sparks” in the varnishes of the Shine of the Times collection are super fine and shimmer like the scales of a fish. Of course, the focus on the index should not be overlooked either.
This is another manicure that is not too complex to achieve, but will immediately catch the eye on you. This easy nail art represents a small gradient of fine red glitters and matching hexagonal glitter highlighted by a deep vamp and deep vamp bottom and crowned with a high-gloss finish. The rhinestones arranged in a triangle on the accent nail are the so-called cherry on the cake not to be missed.
Having mentioned the nail accent, it is a trend that appeared a few years ago which will continue to be current also in 2017. For information, it is the nail whose decoration differs from that of the other fingers, being often opulent or very contrasted. In the above example, all fingernails are unique, but the little finger immediately catches the eye with its glittering glitter and rhinestones. The other fingers form a color chart of white, pearl gray, anthracite and black which is another idea of easy and original nail art that deserves to be noted.
Nail art easy to make – tutorials in photos
Finally, we offer 2 tutorials in photos illustrating the steps of realization of 2 simple manicures however super cute. As we say: “A picture is worth a thousand words”, these collages are therefore sufficiently eloquent in themselves and any additional explanation is useless. We would like to mention something that is not obvious. Handling a fine paintbrush to make miniature dots is more of a challenge to skill and patience. Replace it with a toothpick or better still – with a flat hair clip, and you will make your work a lot easier.
This last idea seems likely complex, but it is only at first glance. These cool clouds are actually the result of an easy, fast, and very important nail art that does not require any additional specific hardware. Take a look at the tutorial in photos below and you’ll see that the cute “lace” is actually made in a brush stroke of the varnish itself.
