Design examples

If you have not yet decided on the design of manicure for the summer, below we have presented nail art ideas that are fashionable in 2020, which are also suitable for short nails.

  • “Refreshing Fresh”. Aquarium manicure is back in fashion. And this season it can be done even on short plates. You only need to randomly place a colorful fimo decor in the form of apples, bananas, kiwi, pineapples, etc. on the surface of the nail. And then, cover everything with a transparent gel. The substrate can also be made transparent or colored, for example, pale pink.

  • With palm trees. In the summer, a manicure with a bright substrate, on top of which palm trees are placed, will be relevant. The drawings themselves must be necessarily dark in order to get an imitation of the shadow on the nails. As for the base, it can be not only monophonic. No less interesting in this design will look like a gradient stretch with contrasting transitions. The finish can be glossy or matte.

  • Berry. This is a kind of alternative to the fruit aquarium design. Only in this case, to create such a design, the technique of artistic painting is used. The drawings themselves should not be too small either. It is desirable that they completely occupy the nail plate. You can depict any fruits and berries on the nails. The most popular option is a watermelon wedge or kiwi slice. To improve such a manicure, transparent gel drops will help you, which will make the design more voluminous.

  • Nautical. A manicure design with blue and white horizontal or vertical stripes is perfect for a trip to the sea. You can leave it as it is or supplement it with drawings in the form of a steering wheel, a rope tied with a sea knot or an anchor.

  • “Butterfly Effect”. This summer, you can’t do without nail art with drawings in the form of various bugs, or rather butterflies. You can purchase a ready-made sticker and decorate your nail with it or draw it yourself. Also, the butterfly can be laid out from rhinestones or kamifubuk. But more creative individuals can form this insect from acrylic powder. It costs no more than two fingers to decorate in this way. Otherwise, the manicure will turn out clumsy.

We encourage you to experiment a little with this design.

Another option is to complement the jacket with artistic painting, sculpting or figured laying out of rhinestones.

  • “Dewdrops”. This is a rather unusual manicure, which is ideal for every day. Its peculiarity lies in the gel droplets randomly located on the surface of the plate. Looking at such marigolds, it seems that condensation has come out on them. In this case, it is better to make the substrate matte. But the color of the base can be any.

  • Powdery. Pretty women who want to get a trendy manicure should take a closer look at designs with powder. After all, this coating allows you to create textured nail art, which is literally mesmerizing. You can simply lay it on the surface of the nail, thereby highlighting it. You can also create various ornaments with powder. But the drawings created with the help of this decorative coating will look especially catchy.

  • marble stone. The next trend of the summer season of 2020 was a design that imitates the surface of a stone on the nails. Often, short nails are given the color of marble or quartz by nail art masters. Such a design in itself already looks impressive. But if desired, it can be supplemented with silver or gold stripes, decorative threads or a simple scattering of glitter sequins.

  • Ombre. Although you can’t experiment on short nails with a gradient stretch, it still has a place to be. In this case, you can create an ombre with only two colors.
