Choosing day-long nails is always fun because it’s for a special occasion. Make every day special with designs you can wear anywhere.
Floral Nails – Section Four
Even the floral patterns that go off the deep end, like the long and 3D ones, can be dulled down. The lovely, flowery patterns are universal regardless of size, length or shape. The colors combine well by mixing and matching, after all, nature does it best. It’s DIY Heaven to experiment using floral patterns. Not that they’re all easy patterns, half the fun of having nails that last all week is splurging on something really spectacular. At salons, search for 3D, or super-long designs, so you feel you’ve gotten your money’s worth.
The colors really say it, beautifully haunting, with dead dandelion clocks blowing away into the twilight blue. A touch somber perhaps, worthwhile matching the occasion keeping this in mind, reserve for days when you’re feeling arty.
Minty fresh colors with a sting in the tail. The stiletto shape is wildly impractical. These are unlikely to be worn for more than a specific day, they could be created on an almond shape talon instead. The belle of the ball.
These nails are far from subtle, but they’re cool. The pattern’s flowery, but also rather abstract. Don’t use your hands often? You might function like a normal human. Maybe.
This Japanese style pattern’s cute and easy. Choose a light base color that goes with pink. The branches are produced with brown polish, which isn’t always easy to obtain so dark green, black or gray are options. Use a bobby pin to create the blossom with several shades of pink.
Girly 3D Nails.
Super girly perfect. The combination of classic red base, pretty white flowers, and lace produces a charming effect. These are stick-on acrylics but an ambitious technician might attempt it freehand.
Could feature in 90s movies. These fakes are wickedly long and sharp, making the femme fatale. They look capable of serious damage if required but when hearts and flowers are in the mix a girlier demeanor emerges.
Women would rarely want talons this long and sharp but the beautiful pattern is worth trying. These are fakes you buy with flowers printed on them already but it’s possible to duplicate anything if you’re truly skilled.
Complementary Blue Sparkles.
Unique but subtle, wear them without feeling like a weirdo and still look absolutely awesome. The blue and sparkles go incredibly well together in this wintry scene. A sleek, bold, and interesting example.
Lots happening to make these interesting. They’re definitely cool and almost regal. The pearls and flowers are 3D, for extra interest but a burden for general use. Wear occasionally.
The Power of Flower.
Ideal DIY project for someone starting out. The lines are thick and the colors are simple, so no worries about mixing. Any colors go, in this case, darker colors stand out against the flowery pattern.
