If you are bored of monochromatic nails but do not have the time or steady hand to create intricate nail art then accent nails are the best solution for you. You basically paint your nails in the usual manner but add some design or contrasting shade to one of the nails on each hand. This will instantly enhance the beauty of your manicure without taking too much time or effort.
Here is an example that I created with orange nails and a metallic gold accent nail. You can use gold with warm colors or silver with cool toned colors to make your manicure look trendy. You can also add a pop of neon to neutral shades for a bright contrast. The options are infinite, just let the creative juices flow. I created my summery manicure with the Maybelline Super Stay 7 Days Gel Nail Colour in Orange Couture and the Colorbar Metallic Nail Lacquer in the shade Treasure.
Accent nails are an excellent option for beginners and are subtle enough to be worn on all occasions. Let me know what is your favorite accent nail design in the comments below 🙂
