  • Minimalism. For lovers of simplicity and conciseness, such a nail design with kamifubuki will be the most, especially since it can be done not only with shellac, but also with ordinary varnish. Its meaning is that several marigolds stand out with one element of confetti, or the plates of the smallest size line up in a small triangle or strip. As for the color palette, in addition to the nude, typical of minimalism, more saturated tones are also allowed.

  • With rubbing. The combination of colored kamifubuki with iridescent or metallic sheen creates a truly spectacular and fashionable evening manicure design. But for more modest personalities, stylists suggested combining colored confetti with a “unicorn” or “mermaid” rub, which allows you to wear such a manicure in everyday life.

  • Matte. Colored confetti with a matte top look very stylish and unusual. However, if you “plant” these shiny rounds directly on a matte base, the result will be an imitation of colored highlights over a velvet base.

  • Monochrome. Initially, this design was created exclusively in black, where one or two nails stood out over a colored substrate with kamifubuki elements. Today, the palette has expanded significantly and in addition to dark ones such as burgundy, green and blue, nude tones are also used.

  • Strip. Geometric patterns are now more relevant than ever, so why not use them in design with kamifubuki. You just need to lay out diamonds or rounds on the surface of the nail in one vertical or diagonal line. Another option is to leave a wide unpainted strip in the center or side of the nail, on top of which you can lay out colored plates.

  • Ombre stretch. It is also possible to make a beautiful gradient from decor such as kamifubuki. Stretching in this case can be laid out both from the end and from the base of the nail. As for the base, this design mainly uses a transparent substrate, but it will look no less impressive with a colored base.

  • Volume. This design involves the simultaneous connection of two different textures. Various voluminous curls, monograms and stripes created with fine acrylic powder are perfectly combined with colored kamifubuki. In this case, they can be randomly located on the nail, or they can be used as a complementary element in a three-dimensional design.

  • with sequins. At the same time, it is easy to perform and at the same time elegant and fashionable design that has conquered the heights of beauty trends. It is based on the selection of one finger with a scattering of sparkles, and the second with kamifubuki of the same color. But more creative individuals can combine these two decors on one nail at once by laying out confetti on top of a shiny coating.
