Light pedicure with decorative elements and glitter

A variety of decorative elements are used to adorn a light pedicure. All kinds of glitter, rhinestones, stones, sequins, and confetti can turn a restrained design into a festive one, drawing attention to your neat well-groomed feet.

Light pedicure with rhinestones

Rhinestones are used in light toenail designs in different ways, depending on the idea of the nail artist:

  • A nude beige coating is complemented with golden stones laid out in geometric shapes with accessories that are placed separately.
  • A white pedicure can be embellished with silver or white rhinestones to create a design for a special occasion.
  • Toenails are painted in different light shades each to make a single composition with the help of rhinestones of the same color and size.
  • Patterns with rhinestones that match the light base coat are laid out along the growth zone.

Light pedicure with chrome powder and foil

To achieve a fabulous shiny design, light gel polish can be complemented with foil or chrome powder. In the first case, the toenails get a metallized effect, in the second, the effect depends on the type of chrome powder.

The light toenails look bright and unusual if the foil design is made only on big toes. It’s better to leave the rest of the toenails one-colored. Another option for using foil is to apply prints to the toenails that form abstract patterns. You can complement your light pedicure with holographic foil elements to get the most original toenail design.

Chrome powder with a reflecting effect can make your light pedicure look delicate, romantic and at the same time bright. This special coating is available in different shades, so you can choose the best option to match up with your base color. If you are craving for a pearlescent effect, you can apply chrome powder over white or pale pink gel polish, creating an incredibly beautiful play of colors.

Light pedicure with glitter

Glitter matches perfectly with a light base color, making your spring, summer and winter pedicure designs complete. Glitter can be applied to the entire toenail plate, create a beautiful gradient, accentuate decorative elements, or outline the boundaries between color transitions.
