What are "blush nails" and why they are called the perfect manicure for winter
New nail trends are constantly appearing on social media. This time, Instagram and TikTok are flooded with Korean "blush nails".
Winter is the perfect time for this design, writes Byrdie. "Blush" mani will also appeal to fans of manimalism. One of them, model and trendsetter Hailey Bieber, has already joined the trend.
"It's a nude but vibrant nail art," explains Rita Remark, an expert at Essie. "A radial ombre of pale pink blush is delicately placed in the middle of each nail, as if you've just come in from the cold.
What do "blush nails" look like
"Blush nails are a Korean style that combines nail art and makeup," Jinsoon Choi, founder of Jinsoon Nails, told Popsugar. The manicure usually has a light neutral-colored base with a spot of scattered pink polish, or in some cases, real blush, to mimic the look of rosy cheeks.
How to achieve the desired effect
"The original trend is created by using a pink nude base and real blush or pink eyeshadow, which is lightly applied with a brush to the center of the nail and then fixed with another layer," says manicurist Dayanna Sapiens.
You can also embellish this manicure with additional accents. "You can add pebbles, make a jacket, or do nail art, which is another popular Korean trend," Choi says. Some of the ideas for "blush nails" can be seen below.
