Cow Print Nails
Cow Print Nail Designs
As of late, master manicurists have proposed an all-new way to imbue the print into your signature look. You guessed it: cow-print nail designs. It’s the playful, extraverted, summer-ready update you didn’t know your mani needed. One of the best things about the cowhide nail look is how deceivingly simple it is. Unlike the total precision required to nail even a basic french, minute imperfections will only add to your spotted look in this case. That is if you are going the freehand route. A bevy of stick-on decals from brands like Ciaté London make it even easier to tap into the trend. (You’ll have a chance to shop the whole set ahead.)
Cow print nails have seen a rise in popularity ever since Kendall Jenner and Ariana Grande first debuted them in 2019. At first, cow print nails may have seemed like a fad, but now in 2021 we can confirm that they’re here to stay. Searches for “cow nails” and “cow print nails” have only gone up in recent months, perhaps because more people have time to experiment with their inner artist in lockdown.
Matte Cow Print Nail Design
If you’re fed up with luster, try applying matte top coats. A rich velvet texture has been at the top of fashion for years. It wonderfully emphasizes the beauty of well-groomed hands and the right nail shape.
It is difficult to resist the charm of cow print. Moreover, a matte coating adds saturation to colors. It’s stunning itself and creates an eye-popping effect in combination with glossy, semi-matte, or matte finishes of matching shades of ripe berries, rosebuds, fresh green, and wine. Cow print looks dazzling on a gradient base coat.
Cow print nail art is a win-win option if you want something fresh with a touch of eccentricity. Move from words to deeds! Feel free to choose an animal print that matches your nail shape, outfit, and lifestyle.
Cow print nails can be decorated with foil, confetti, rhinestones, beads, 3D nail accessories, and polymer clay.
Remember that you can add your ideas to the basic ones and create a new design. Another advantage of a cow print is that it looks astonishing on nails of all shapes and sizes. Long nails allow a nail technician to apply as many decorations as possible. On the other hand, short nails will look marvelous complemented by small neat spots. Observance of proportions is the key to the balance.
Spring is finally here—which means it’s finally time to break out lighter and brighter manicures and pedicures. And although there are plenty of great polish shades for spring, plus a whole season’s worth of cute nail art ideas (gotta love those rainbow nails), there’s one big trend that took even us by surprise: cow print. But hear us out—the finished black-and-white look is actually really chic. And much like leopard print, it acts kind of like a neutral with a little extra oomph.
Need proof? Kendall Jenner and Ariana Grande got out in front of the trend early. In its March cover interview, Allure asked Jenner which manicure she wanted to try next. “So there’s one that’s like cow print,” she said. “I know that sounds really weird, but it’s actually really cool.”
Grande, on her end, has already embraced the look: She recently showed off her cow-print mani in her Instagram Stories.
