Trend To Try: Messy Brazilian Manicure

There is definitely nothing traditional about this Brazilian mani!

Even with the long list of nail tutorials and beauty tools that promise an effortless mani-pedi session at home, a lot of girls are still iffy about painting their digits at home because of the risk of getting air bubbles, smudged polish, etc. when they're going for clean, smudge-free nails that nail technicians in a nail spa do. Well, you're in luck if you've never mastered painting your digits perfectly because messy manicure is apparently a huge trend in Brazil!

You heard it right, Candy Girls! Brazilian manicures are nothing like the traditional sleek and clean nail trends that we're used to seeing. In fact, Brazilian manicure purposely paints the nails messily because nail color lasts longer that way.

The Brazilian nail technician would paint the nails and the surrounding skin with a clear base coat, followed by the chosen nail color. Using this nail technique, the nail polish won't stain the skin as you apply it! How cool is that? Before the smudged nail color dries up, the nail technician will then use an orangewood stick with an acetone-soaked cotton ball to remove the excess nail color around the skin.

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
