An ideal image without manicure is impossible to imagine. Well-groomed hands are immediately evident, complementing the outfit with a touch of varnish. A festive manicure is not just an addition: it can be considered as an independent bright and unusual accent.
Manicure is a classic procedure for nail care, which includes two stages:

- Applying varnish to prepared nails.
In any case, manicure is an opportunity to emphasize your individuality. Good and high-quality, it always pleases, allows you to reflect the mood and desires.
Features of festive nail design
Festive manicure gives a wide scope of imagination when decorating the nail plate: an unusual decor can be given with feathers, shells, semiprecious stones. It should be remembered that such nails require careful handling, otherwise beauty can be ruined very quickly.
A small detail (for example, a pattern of rhinestones, sequins, a pattern along the edge of the nail, a French hem) will help turn everyday nail care into a festive one.
