The One Manicure You Need to Master

Two-tone nails are all the rage this summer. Learn how to do this surprisingly simple nail-art look with the hottest, most vibrant shades of the season.

The world of nail art has absolutely exploded over the past few years, with designs of all kinds becoming totally mainstream and no longer reserved for only the most diehard nail-art aficionados. In fact, if subtlety is more your style, there are more nail-art designs than ever for you to choose from. Simple nail designs are striking in their own right and are more popular than they have ever been.

Take, for instance, the beloved negative-space trend. Not only does negative-space nail art help massively in extending the life of your nail art, especially if the clear part of the design sits at your cuticle, where you’d normally notice any nail growth, but it looks fresh, chic and modern.

Easy nail-art designs add a pop of colour to any outfit and are the quickest and simplest way to make a statement with your beauty look. With over 60 gorgeous shades, L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Oil-Infused Nail Polish can help you achieve whatever nail-art look your heart desires.

One of the trendiest nail-colour trends of the past few seasons is different colour nails. Whether that means one solid shade on each and every nail or multiple shades on the same nail, the trend is the easiest way to experiment with different shade combinations and even branch out into colours that you haven’t tried before.

Have you always been tempted by yellow nail polish? What about electric orange? Thanks to L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Oil-Infused Nail Polish’s wide range of colours, plus the simple-nail-design trend, you can easily achieve the simple nail art of your dreams from the comfort of your couch.

You can also pair a bright colour with a neutral, like black or white, for a subtler, chic take on the trend. Or, if you’re feeling bold, go ahead and pair nail polish shades that you wouldn’t normally think of putting together. (Think pink and orange or blue and green.) Thanks to the negative-space trend, it’s easy to use your nails to make a beauty statement that’s as bold or as subtle as you want it to be.

L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Oil-Infused Nail Polish has a massive collection of shades ranging from pastels like pistachio and lavender to neons like orange and hot pink. Can’t decide? Paint each nail a different colour, making sure to keep your selections in the same family to avoid a clashing manicure.

If you want to try the multicoloured-nail look, a foolproof way to dip your toe into the trend is by choosing five different shades of the same colour. (Pink is an easy one, since there are so many different options to choose from!) Starting with the darkest on your thumb or on your pinky, gradually get lighter and lighter with your choices until you end up with the lightest one on the end. The ombré look will make a huge impact once you see all five shades together.

When it comes to two-toned nails, any colour combination goes, really—all you need to remember is to let each coat of polish dry before you go in with another on top. Other than that, throw any and all rules you may have heard out the window and get creative! There are no wrong answers when it comes to nail art, especially when it’s so simple and easy that you can do it at home.
