Contouring manicure, what is it?

Like many other nail art trends, nail contouring, also called Ruffian manicure. In this blog, your expert nail supplier Maryton will reveals some contouring ideas for the nails as well as the principle of this fashionable manicure.

Why do nail contouring?

The contouring manicure is used to structure the nails by giving them an impression of length and finesse. The goal is to play with the varnishes on the shadows and the lights. The other contouring technique instead uses two colors of nail polish in order to obtain a contrast. The art of contouring for the nails therefore lies in creating the optical illusion through work on the contour of the nails. It is mainly the curve of the nail that is highlighted with this method.

Some contouring manicure ideas

One of the easiest contour manicures to achieve is one where you only use one color. Instead, opt for a bright hue, such as a bright red, orange or pink. Coat only the central part of the nail, leaving its outline without varnish. For a graphic effect, bet instead on the double color of varnish. For a citrus look, try orange polish and a thicker stroke of pearlescent polish. You can also put a more delicate color, such as soft pink, on the nail plate and draw horizontal designer lines underneath, such as dark blue. It is also possible to choose two similar colors, but one will be lighter than the other.
