A very original version is when two varnishes of the same tone are combined, but one is matte and the other is glossy. This design is perfect for a business suit, and for a romantic dress, and even for a sports outfit. The main thing is to draw the border very carefully.

If there is no matte varnish, it does not matter, you can buy a special top or top coat with a matting effect in the store. Moreover, it is permissible to apply not only to the gel, but also to ordinary varnish. This manicure is also carried out in two stages:

  1. Application of a glossy base. Drying.
  2. Draw the border with the top. Drying.

This brown jacket on the nails (photo above) looks very impressive. Design can be applied to both natural plates and extended ones. But it is important to consider that after all the manipulations, it is not fixed by the fixer. Indeed, otherwise the matte varnish will again become glossy - which means that the idea will not succeed.

The main part of the nail can also be decorated with a pattern or ornament. The design looks very stylish, it will perfectly complement any evening look.

The difference between this design and the French is that the overgrown part of the nail is not painted over here. A crescent-shaped hole is drawn at the base. The advantage of such a manicure is that when the nail grows, you can slightly tint the bottom of the plate and walk a little more with the old manicure. This saves both time and money.

The hole can be either a contrasting color, or nude or shiny. You can also combine both designs - paint and the hole, and the overgrown part of the nail. The main thing is to choose the right combination of varnishes to look harmonious. For example, brown jacket can be revived with mint or pink.

Ideas and nuances of manicure in brown tones

Fashion, makeup and manicure are changing every year, but the classics always remain. Brown jacket is very popular in 2019, but experts do not set a strict framework for this design. Therefore, you can safely combine different styles and ideas, look for interesting combinations, designs and even textures.

This year, sparkles and rhinestones, various stones, foil, rubbing will be appropriate. But remember that in such a manicure it is worth maintaining harmony. Sometimes it’s not worth doing everything all at once, it’s enough to decorate one or two nails somehow original, and leave the rest neutral. It is also worth noting that the fashion of making all fingers the same has already passed, so you can experiment and supplement the French manicure with something else. For example, arrange 4 fingers on the hand in the studied style, and decorate one with a gradient from brown to beige, white or black. To get the transition, it is not necessary to select varnishes. You can simply purchase two - the first and the last, and then mix them on a piece of foil, creating intermediate shades.
