Festival Nails - How to Create Trendy Festival Manicures?

Spring and summer are the perfect seasons for fantastic outdoor events, including music festivals and other exhilarating artistic gatherings. To fully embrace the unique vibe, pay attention to your festival manicure! What trends will dominate this year? How can you stand out from the crowd and highlight your distinctive personality? Find out and go wild!

Festival Nails – What's Trendy and Desirable?

Joy, positive energy, freedom, expression, vibrant colours, and lots of fun – these are the first associations with the word "festival". Your festival manicure should evoke the same feelings. Let yourself be swept away by the incredible atmosphere. Open up and unleash your creativity because there are no limits and no rules here, and the principle "less is more" definitely does not apply!

Your festival nail design should shout out loud and burst with colours and decorations. Intricate floral or geometric patterns, abstract designs, neons, glitter, holographics – anything and everything you can think of – will be spot on! Discover the top 5 festival nail ideas that will not go unnoticed.

Glow in the Dark – The Ultimate Festival Hit!

A great party is a long party. When night falls, surprise everyone with glow-in-the-dark nails! You can easily achieve this using the amazing Semilac Glow in the Dark collection. A fantastic idea is to create a French manicure with glowing tips. As a base, you can choose, for example, the 582 Natural Rose UV gel polish in a light, semi-transparent pink. Create the smile line with a bright, candy pink like 442 Trick or Pink. This bold, striking look will make sure you get noticed!

Note: Use glow-in-the-dark UV gel polishes exclusively with top coats that don't have a blue tint, such as Top No Wipe Real Colour or Top Mat Total.

Day & Night – Achieve a Spectacular Effect When Night Falls

The intriguing Semilac Day & Night Plans collection features 5 beautiful colours, including:

These innovative UV gel polishes provide a two-dimensional effect. During the day, thanks to their high pigmentation and polish density, the glittery particles are almost invisible, giving your manicure a “tame” and toned-down look. However, when night comes, a million dazzling sparkles are unleashed! Choose your favourite colour or mix and match.

Neon Festival Nails

Neon designs make a splash at every party and are also perfect for spring and summer manicures. Here are our suggestions:

Go wild and combine several UV gel polishes in any way you like, for example, using the ombre technique, painting each nail a different colour, or creating abstract, colourful patterns.

Timeless Leopard Print for the Festival

Leopard print is always in style, so feel free to go for it. How to do it? It's simple! First, prepare the base. You can use Semilac Care Base with a transparent pudding pink shade. Then, carefully apply a leopard print transfer foil to the selected nail or part of it. For an even greater effect, create a French manicure on the remaining nails with a neon smile line using the UV gel polish Orange Euphoria, a deep juicy orange, or paint the whole nail with it.

If you want to go even bolder, try creating the leopard print yourself using the suggested neon UV gel polishes. For instance, use the multifunctional Extend 5in1 Pastel Peach base in a pastel sweet peach shade as the foundation.

Flower Power – Subtle UV Gel Nail Designs

Floral motifs are another hit that will dominate the spring and summer months. If you enjoy this kind of style, we have an irresistible suggestion. Use the refreshingly light Mint Refresh UV gel polish in a yoghurt-like, diluted mint colour for one nail. For another nail, use the equally refreshing Mint. For the remaining nails, use the Pastel Peach base and apply floral transfer foil. Additionally, you can add Aurora Shine Diamond rhinestones to the design.

Another intriguing yet somewhat subdued option is a colourful French manicure with floral accents, which you can achieve with special UV gel polishes for designs. As a base, the Milky Pink UV gel polish works perfectly.
