This is what you need! The best Barbiecore manicure ideas: the trend was set by Margot Robbie. Photo
The film Barbie, starring Margot Robbie, has become a major hit this year, grossing a record-breaking box office in its first weekend of release since the coronavirus pandemic. The comedy with a "non-plastic" content is analysed and disassembled in detail, including from a fashion perspective. Fashionistas around the world are trying to replicate the images of the iconic blonde dolls in real life. But the popularity of the Barbiecore style, i.e. everything pink, slightly infantile and as feminine as possible, does not end with the wardrobe. This trend has spread to the world of nail art.
Thus, the audience was absorbed by nostalgia for Barbie, and therefore pink manicure took a leading position in the list of trends. OBOZREVATEL offers to get acquainted with some of the most relevant ideas.
Shimmering pink manicure
We're not going to say for sure, but we can assume that your everyday outfits don't have a lot of sparkle in them. Compensating for the lack of shimmer with a manicure is the best idea. Choose a deep pink colour with a shimmering effect. Don't be afraid to experiment with volumetric textures.
Pink + orange manicure
Try a combination of neon orange and pink shades. A juicy and bright option for the summer that will not leave anyone indifferent. Flowing varnishes that create a gradient or ombre effect are a trendy combination for this duo.
Cool chrome Barbie nails
Barbie can be different. And the Margot Robbie blockbuster is in a hurry to tell us about it. But the same can be said about manicure. If we are talking about the Barbiecore style, this does not mean that you need to use neon raspberry varnishes. Do not cross out the cold pink palette from the list. Experiment with glossy chrome and shimmering magnetic polish. Unlike other variants of this summer style, this manicure gives a dramatic winter energy that is perfect for the image of the ice queen Barbie.
Pink French manicure
The ever-popular classic - French manicure - will sparkle with new colours if done in the Barbiecore style. You can draw a pink tip on a transparent, beige, or milky base. You can also use pink as a base, but in a lighter shade. A Barbie-esque Frenchman will look interesting with a matte finish. The tip, by the way, can also be unusual: shiny, double (two stripes: light and more saturated on one nail), and so on.
Double-sided Barbie manicure
Double-sided manicure is not very popular, but this does not mean that it is anti-trend. If you don't want to be so obviously a Barbie and want to remain a strong woman, but at the same time, you are also attracted to the doll's nostalgia, "hide" the pink polish on the inside of the nail. And on top, apply your favourite dark or any other shade that will go well with pink. However, if you want to make the most of Barbiecore, we suggest covering your nails with a bright pink shade and applying gold glitter on the inside. This is a kind of reference to the sand from the beaches of Barbieland.
