If you are already a little tired of the glitter and bright colors of the New Year's manicure, I have a worthy alternative for you! Bracelet nails are an elegant design that you will surely love! :)
Like many modern trends in the field of beauty, this original manicure came to us from South Korea , or rather, thanks to the nail art master Kyung Park Eun, who is a resident of the world-famous Unistella salon in Seoul.
There is no doubt about the talent of this young lady, because she was the first introduced the world to the “broken glass” manicure design, which is loved by most girls around the world. This manicure design got its name due to the similarity to the way of wearing several bracelets intertwined on the arm. Remember how in childhood we wove a variety of "baubles" with friends in the yard? So, the creator of the trend said that this design was inspired by memories from her childhood, when she and her friends wore the so-called “friendship bracelets”. :)
The general idea of this manicure is to use improvised means to recreate the same bracelets from childhood on the nails, and visually combine these into one style, one line passing through all the nails. And sometimes the bracelets on the nails look really like real ones! What I love the most about bangle nails is how dainty it is. It seems to me that such a manicure can be an excellent option for those who, according to their status, are no longer supposed to wear a lot of "baubles" or jewelry.
How to make nails bracelets
The original bangle nails are made with sewing thread or fishing line, and decorations , which are then generously covered with gel. This is by far the best way to increase the life of such a manicure, but, in principle, for those who are not a fan of gel polish, regular nail polish can be used as an alternative. But it will be a pity if such beauty starts chipping off in a couple of days! :(
A similar design can also be achieved by drawing lines on the nails instead of gluing threads, but then the design loses its authenticity and does not look like a small replica of a real bracelet.
Another advantage of bangle nails is that you don't need false or extended nails for such a manicure. To achieve the desired effect, it is enough to cover the nails with a glossy top. Also, this manicure is perfect for short nails .
Despite the fact that most of the variations of bracelet nails I have seen are made on a nude basis, I advise you to experiment and not be afraid of contrasting colors. This variant of a manicure with a rich blue base only confirms how colorful and bright your manicure with bracelets on your nails can become.
This design can be a great option for a summer manicure. Just think, it's only 6 months away! :) :) :)
Since Ken Park Eun is also the creator of the broken glass manicure, it would be strange if she did not try to combine these two trends into one design. :) But as for me, after all, bracelets on nails look best on a plain base.
Those who are planning to try making nail bracelets at home should remember how long it takes even for professionals. Since small details are used in the process, the creation of such a design can take more than two hours, but the result is worth it. :)
A few tips for creating a "bracelet nail" design:
- Do not choose too fluffy threads. The threads should be even and without protruding fibers, this will significantly affect the overall look of your manicure.
- Try to choose only small decorations for this design. Too massive beads can disrupt the appearance and affect the durability of the manicure.
- Before attaching threads or decorations to the nail, apply a small amount of varnish to these, it will help to stick better on the nails in the future.
I write myself in the ranks of fans of this nail design! :) Forget about a large number of accessories, because it can be easily replaced with such an original manicure! :)
