A manicure you can make yourself at home
Keep it simple with holographic nails
Holographic nails are just so beautiful and sparkly. But at the same time, in a way, they are very simple and minimalistic. What’s more, the best thing about them is the fact that all you need is a good holographic nail polish and you don’t even have to visit the nail salon. Simply go to the drug store, pick out a color you like and apply it at home yourself. You can paint all of your nails, or keep it inetersting and even more simplistic by painting just one or two nails on each hand and painting the rest in a simple color that goes well with the holographic one.
French manicure in all shapes and colors is here to stay
Rainbow French manicure
French manicure in general is here to stay. For the summer, however, you can spice things up. Make it more interesting by using a rainbow French manicure.
