STALEKS Journalist.
I write about the beauty industry, collect information, and share trends. I manage an interview column on the STALEKS YouTube channel.

Modern fashion trends are so diverse that they allow each girl to choose a unique and unusual image. Manicure is an important element of the style with which to experiment: to select new colors, to fantasize with decorative elements, not to be afraid to adjust the length and shape.

As a leading manufacturer of beauty tools, the company STALEKS follows those fashion trends that will be relevant in 2019. What to look for in nail design? What combinations of colors, patterns and decorative elements will be in trend? Time to choose your favorites – details in our article!


The basis of everything – well-groomed nails and a neat manicure. Before choosing an unusual neylart, it is important to consider what shape and length your nails will have.

Experts say that in 2019 the slightly pointed (almond-shaped or “stylet”) shape of the nails will be relevant. By the way, it is considered one of the most universal – it is easier for the master to work with this form, it fits any length and thickness of the fingers. The rounded edges make the fingers visually longer, and the manicure itself is more refined.

As for the length of the nails, here the experts leave the choice to the girls and their taste preferences. Wear the nails of the length with which it is easier and more convenient.

It should not be forgotten that the accuracy of the manicure depends on the professionalism of the nail master by 50%. The remaining half is due to a sharp and durable tool that fits comfortably in your hand. The STALEKS PRO brand offers both beginners and experienced masters to appreciate the advantages of a professional tool with which performing any manicure stages (shape correction, nail trimming, removal of cuticle and horny skin from okolonogtevy rollers) becomes more convenient and easier.


We turn to the most creative and interesting stage of manicure – design. Here, expert opinions are divided: in the tops of world-famous publications on fashion and beauty, you can simultaneously see polar opposite trends: pastel and dark colors, extravagant design with lots of decorative elements and minimalism, a matte finish and glossy glitter (multi-colored varnish with glitter). In our final top we collected 10 of the most unusual ideas of manicure, with which your nail art will definitely not go unnoticed.

1. Broken glass effect

Technique comes from the Korean beauty industry has become a global trend. The answer to the sudden popularity of such nail art is a sacred rule for the 21st century: “quickly, simply and with taste”.

Although a manicure with the effect of “broken glass” does not imply a complex technique, it is still better to turn to a professional. Covering the nails with a final coat of varnish, the master imposes pieces of special cellophane, which visually resembles a flickering hologram. Such a manicure looks especially bright and unusual on the street under natural light – “broken glass” plays with many highlights and changes shades. Ideal manicure for everyday life and evening prom.

2. The color of expensive metals

The main fashion colors of 2019 are gold, copper and chrome colors. And it is not at all necessary to buy an expensive lacquer with particles of real gold or make jewelry manicure to shine in the new year.

Nail art masters use metallic highlights on neutral pink or beige shades. The trend is a monochromatic varnish of metallic color or the use of metallic as a decor on several fingers. Pearl pigments on a white basis look favorably on the long nails of the “stiletto” shape.

3. «Glitter»

The abundance of glitter is an unusual trend of 2019, because always with a sparkling lacquer, several nails were distinguished from the majority with matt varnish. But next year is a time of bold experiments, and many masters are already offering customers to cover all their nails with glitter. For a more saturated “glitter” choose varnishes in bright colors – carrot, emerald, amethyst, scarlet.

With such a manicure, it is easier to experiment with metallic details (hello, french!), Asymmetrical lines, matte inserts. The only thing to avoid in 2019 is over-saturation. We reject sliders, rhinestones and other stones that can compete with glitter varnish.

4. Color jacket

Based on the classic jacket, you can successfully embody any color duet. The principle is the same, but it is important to make the manicure more noticeable and saturated by combining nude shades with a bright “glitter” varnish, dark colors with light ones and vice versa.

Experts advise to use the principles of lunar manicure (the “opposite” service jacket) in 2019, alternating different colors of the same gamma in any order.

5. 50 shades of blue

From bright aquamarine to rich indigo – almost all shades of blue will be in trend in 2019. A monochromatic blue manicure claims a central place (and it doesn’t matter which one is matte or glossy), but let’s not forget about the “glitter”, which will be appropriate to look for both everyday and festive atmosphere.

Blue color is convenient to combine with gold, silver, light blue pigments, the effect of “broken glass”. The advantages of this color are not only in harmonious compatibility with decorative elements, but also in the fact that it is suitable for any shape and length of nails. Universally and with taste!

6. Minimalism

The minimum of decorative elements, nude colors, lightness and unobtrusiveness – the “minimalism” style comes into its own in 2019. And this is not surprising: the fashion for naturalness has long been replaced by glamorous rhinestones and bright accents. Minimalistic manicure is ideal for everyday life due to its versatility.

The basic principles of nail art in the style of minimalism: pastel-colored lacquer, neat decorative elements (a thin stripe of a contrasting color or one miniature crystal at the base of the nail, a shimmering slider printed with a vertical stripe over the base color) .7. Style geometry

For everyday manicure, experts advise choosing simple geometric elements with triangles or sharp corners. Favorably on the nails look lonely figures with thin golden faces. Such an element will become an accent for the whole composition, but it will not overload the overall look.

If you want to decorate your nails with a variety of geometric shapes, stop at the catchy mural from sharp corners. The combination of two or more contrasting colors will create a motley pattern, especially if you alternate glossy varnish and glitter. Do not forget about zigzags and diamonds – they are also in trend!

8. Rainbow Ombre

Gradient manicure from all colors of the rainbow first appeared on the opening fashion show Opening Ceremony. Of course, to repeat such an experiment at home is unlikely to work – you need to turn to a professional. Combining seven colors at once and achieving smooth transitions is not an easy task, but the result is worth it. In addition, the design looks interesting in any variations: matte, glossy, neon.

9. Animal print

Patterns that mimic the skin of a zebra, leopard, or snake are long in fashion, but it is in 2019 that unusual interpretations will be popular. Such an animal painting should not be read immediately, but hardly guessed. Professionals advise you to choose unusual shades and color combinations, use bright colors: purple, red, green.

10. Ethnic and abstract drawings

Original ethnic patterns will decorate any nude manicure. Surprise and abstract drawings like a manicure in the cosmic style, patterns on the wet gel polish, colored chaotic strokes. The more careless – the better, say the new fashion trends.

Whatever design of manicure you choose, remember that creativity has always been and will always be in trend. Professional masters are always ready to fulfill the client’s desire to look unusual and stylish, so they will be able to suggest suitable combinations of colors and decorative elements. And with a good tool, creating an ideal manicure will not take much time – products from STALEKS PRO will help the master to quickly and efficiently do their work.
