The geometric nail design will continue to be relevant in 2018. And this is not surprising because the trend of minimalism remains dominant – we are tired of the glamor of the 90’s and the glamour of the year 2000. However, if you do not like to always have a perfect manicure, you can choose the lighter shades.

Matte Nails

Matte nails will always be on top. The design of the nail looks great cared for and does not irritate the eye. In addition, it can be nicely combined with a glossy manicure and glitter.

Red Nail Designs

This is a classic manicure, which in 2018 certainly will not lose its popularity. In autumn and winter add to your collection the shades of cherry, wine or claret, and closer to spring, return to purple or claret. However, no one will forbid you to do exactly the opposite.

The blue manicure will be very relevant again in the coming season. We owe this to the Pantone Institute, which placed the blue shade in the top ten colors of the next season. A saturated blue hue is what you need in 2018.

When you combine different colors, always remember the spectral approach of colors (a simple rainbow will help in doing so). Close colors in the color spectrum look good in the manicure.

Short Nails Ideas 2018

In spite of the fact that in 2018 the fashion of long nails becomes more intense, short and square nails are unlikely to yield leadership positions. When creating a nail polish manicure, let the imagination do its job and try to create drawings on your nails, initially not so perfect. Then switch to more complicated shapes, strips and more artistic drawings. When you’ve managed to get through this stage, try to mix more colors and create an impressive painting on your nails. Something wonderful will just come out!

Long Nails

One of the main news of the latest fashion week is the return of long nails. Which, however, was inevitable: Short “soft square” nails have been a favorite for too long. Now the situation has changed and the extremely long nails can be seen today not only at Rihanna. Of course, for an active lifestyle, long nails do not fit, instead for a party, they are wonderful.
