Lavender manicure: spring-summer 2021 trends

On the one hand, it cannot be said that at fashion shows the special attention of nail artists to lavender coating was noticeable. On the other hand, it is worth noting that new, unusual options for nude manicure are in fashion.

Instead of delicate powdery shades, they now suggest using gray-brown shades with a slight pinkish tint. Or, for example, neutral taupe (take a closer look at the manicures from the Prabal Gurung and Eudon Choi shows).

“Dusty” lavender was also in trend - as if bleached by the sun, slightly gray. Rubbing is still loved by nail bloggers.

As for Insta trends, judging by them, classic lavender with its cold pastel milkiness is also in demand. It is “worn” both in its pure form, as an independent coating, and in combination with other shades, and is also complemented with various design elements.

Lavender manicure on short nails

If you are planning to get a lavender manicure and your nails are short, then the best beauty solution is to cover them with one color. The noble shade will make your nails more elegant. Even with a short length they will look neat.

Matte texture is a great choice for short nails.

Are you more used to nail art? Creating a design is also possible on short nails painted with lavender polish. But you should limit yourself to just a couple of small details - and not distract too much attention from the color.

Consider a quartz manicure option. It is usually done in pink, but it should look good in lavender too. Another good idea is to decorate your nails with several rhinestones or, for example, a design created using foil.

“Precious dust” will look no less impressive, as in the photo below.

Try adding a few loose strokes of a contrasting color to your nails. Or, for example, paint vertical stripes with shimmer varnish. They will make the design more interesting and your nails visually longer.

Knitted manicure

A great example of an original lavender manicure is a manicure with a knitted design. This season, a combination of knitting with plaid and Scandinavian patterns is considered fashionable:

  • one or two nails are decorated with an imitation of a three-dimensional knitted pattern (oblique, leaves, etc.), others are decorated with small artificial pearls, gold foil figures, stones;
  • several nails can be painted purple and white in a tartan pattern on a lavender background;
  • You can also focus on a lavender nail painted with a Scandinavian pattern in a contrasting color.

Lavender manicure on long nails

If, in the case of short nails, a single-color coating looks good, then for a manicure of long nails, lavender splashes would be the best option. Lavender polish applied to the entire nail plate risks appearing off-white from the outside. But if you choose a polish with shimmer, you can safely apply it to the entire surface of the nail.

This shade rhymes well with others and in more complex nail designs. Combine lavender with soft pink or blue. Lilac or plum are also perfect.

By the way, you can create contrast using texture. Try a color-blocking manicure and you will notice how lavender and a brighter metallic shade complement each other well.

The gradient looks no less impressive on long nails.

This color is distinguished by its sophistication and aristocracy, so its shades will look good on nails to create a romantic and light look. A lilac manicure in dark shades personifies nobility and dignity, which will help add a special touch to the look for an evening walk or a social meeting. Bright shades of purple will add color to a woman's summer look.

The lilac shade personifies grace, elegance, something “special” in the image; it relates to fantasy and spirituality, stimulates the imagination, and inspires high and correct actions. It is an introspective color that allows you to get in touch with deep thoughts. Lilac manicure suits dreamer women who like to escape from the real world. This is real magic in your hands, for which the flight of imagination is limitless. There are many shades of purple, so you can recreate almost all modern design ideas on your nails.

The fashion for lavender color has firmly established itself in all areas - not only clothes, makeup and interiors can contain this shade, but also manicures. Lavender is a cooler shade of purple, while lilac is a warmer shade. The following colors will harmonize well with the lavender shade: pink, milky white, gray, blue and gold. Lavender manicure will add mystery, tenderness and femininity to the image.

Quite restrained, but moderately bright, lavender color is relevant both on winter evenings and under the scorching summer sun. This manicure symbolizes dreaminess and restraint, which will be an excellent addition to your everyday look. If you have chosen dark shades of purple for your manicure, then there will be no need for extensions, since visually the color will make your nails look longer.

On long nails, it is the light shades of purple that look best - lilac, lavender, pale lilac. Lavender manicure goes well with fair skin tones. For dark tones, muted shades of lavender, mixing lavender with black or gray colors are more suitable.

Nail design in lavender tones with rhinestones or sparkles

You don’t even need to think about how to complement the lavender coating: choose rhinestones. Of course, as in any nail art with their participation, success is determined by a sense of proportion - a couple of pebbles should be enough for a full-fledged nail design.

It is best to decorate only two or three nails with rhinestones - no more. But if we are talking about small, laconic crystals, you can glue them to each nail. This design will look thoughtful.

An effective solution is to use them to emphasize the border of colors in a moon manicure or “reverse” French manicure. You can replace rhinestones with sticker pearls. This decor looks more delicate and therefore even more consistent with the lavender color.

To enhance the shine, use fine glitter and a delicate shimmer is guaranteed. Or use foil - stick a metallic film on your nails, leaving “torn” marks. And remember: silver, not gold, goes better with lavender.

Make-up artists have developed interesting ideas for French manicure in lavender tones.

  • A smile line is drawn at the tip of the nail and emphasized with a silver or golden shine. The nail on the ring finger is painted in several shades of purple.
  • Straight French - the nail is divided into two equal parts with an even strip, one of which is coated with lavender-colored varnish, and the other with natural-colored varnish. The border between colors can be emphasized with decor: a thin pattern, foil stripes, glitter.
  • Lunar manicure - when most of the nail is covered with a delicate lavender-colored varnish, the nail hole is not covered.

Lavender manicure ideas with designs

Need a lavender manicure with a design? Most often, lavender sprigs are used as a basis. Flowers of iris, lilac, sakura, and violets are also painted. Delicate daisies depicted using the “dot” technique look good against a lavender background. Floral motifs predominate in the designs chosen for manicures using lavender polish (by the way, if you love roses, try repeating the design using our photo instructions).

A matte top and acrylic powder will help make the design more unusual and interesting - this duet will make the result voluminous. By the way, if you are not yet very confident in using a brush for nail art, you can start with stamping.
