Ideas for fashion design
To make the manicure with stickers look stylish and relevant, it is important to harmoniously arrange the image on the nail. It is not necessary to observe symmetry. Today, asymmetry is in fashion. Let's consider together the original ideas for the design of the nail plate.
- Pink gentle manicure emphasizes the romanticism of the wearer. Especially if the index and nameless nail are decorated with a sticker with a photoprint of large blooming peonies.
- The short nails harmoniously look stickers of small size. Multicolored stars or flowers can decorate every nail. A beautifully spider web with a spider on a white background. Place the images asymmetrically. You can arrange the elements of one pattern on different nails. For example, one wing of a butterfly on the nail of the ring finger, and the other - of the middle finger.
- It is fashionable to make photo prints from real photos at festive events. Wedding manicure looks interesting, if it depicts the bride and groom. Such labels can be specially ordered in salons.
- Beautifully look voluminous stickers with the image of black curved cats. Choose a monochrome background to get a minimalist manicure.
- Sponges and hearts will never go out of fashion. They are especially relevant for Valentine's Day. By the way, pay attention to thematic stickers. By the New Year, many images are produced with snowflakes, snowmen, fir trees and deer. Be always in a trend.
- Use stickers in the form of strips to create geometric ornaments. They help to conduct smooth lines.
The main rule of nail design - do not overdo it. Too many decorative elements, especially on short nails, look vulgar and heavy.
Tip! From the variety of stickers, choose exactly those that harmoniously complement the image. Skulls will be out of place on the nails of a young tender girl.
