Fashionable 3D nail decorations - how to do it?

The 3D effect on nails is one of the beloved manicure trends. Protruding nail decorations attract attention and give the styling a unique character. Although it seems that achieving this effect might be complicated, there are many products and techniques that allow you to create such decorations at home. In this article, you will learn how to achieve the mentioned effect on your nails and which products to use.

Raised patterns on nails, or why women love the 3D effect

Raised patterns and three-dimensional decorations give nails a unique character and make them a true work of art. The 3D effect attracts attention and adds depth to the nails, giving them a new dimension. It's a perfect solution that allows for both subtle, delicate patterns and more extravagant and original compositions.

If you prefer subtlety, opt for thin, raised lines or other decorative elements that will give your nails a refined character. Using pastel, muted shades, you can create elegant designs, perfect for everyday wear or more formal occasions.

On the other hand, for those who like bold stylings, the 3D effect allows for incredibly impressive and daring patterns. Raised decorations in intense colours or a combination of different textures and materials guarantee spectacular visual effects that attract attention. Such stylings are perfect for evening outings or special occasions where you want to stand out and express your creativity.

Therefore, thanks to the versatility of the 3D effect on nails, everyone can find something suitable for themselves - from modest and elegant proposals to bolder and more noticeable stylings. It is this diversity that makes the technique so popular among manicure enthusiasts.

The creative possibilities of this technique are limitless. One of the most popular motifs is floral inspirations. You can create delicate flowers on selected nails or decorate all fingers with them.

Another very simple idea for a 3D effect is patterns resembling raindrops or dew. A thick top coat is enough to create such decorations. This is a proposal that both beginners and experienced individuals can use for DIY manicures.

Another inspiration is the well-known and still fashionable sweater patterns. These three-dimensional decorations have a unique character and attract attention. Although they are mainly associated with cold months and bad weather, they can be done in a summer version. Just choose the right colours, preferably pastels. Pink, light purple, or mint are perfect choices!

We must not forget about the popular "coquette nails" or "flirtatious nails". It's an original decoration characterized by long nails, usually in a coffin shape. On a shiny, light plate, raised decorations are painted or glued with additions such as crystals, pearls, zircons, or bows. It's also worth adding glitter, which gives the nails even more shine. Nails with a 3D effect in this style are extremely feminine and inventive.

Which products can be used to create a 3D effect?

To achieve a 3D effect on nails, a few products are enough. The first is a top coat without a dispersion layer, for example, Semilac Top No Wipe. The product also provides a long-lasting and very high gloss, giving the "wet nails" effect. This is especially an important layer of manicure as it ensures its durability and protects nails from mechanical damage. Because it's thick, you can easily create a raised decoration with it.

Another product that can be used to create a 3D effect is the transparent Semilac Smart Tytan Builder Gel Clear. It easily allows you to create three-dimensional patterns on nails that stand out from traditional decorations. It's an ideal solution for those who prefer more raised and complex decorative elements.

What should you remember during 3D effect?

To achieve the best results when creating 3D decorations, consider a few tips.
First, always make a raised decoration on a nail already finished with a top coat. You can use a matte top to achieve an interesting effect.
The base is an important issue. A unique look of such an effect is ensured by a base in which you use powders such as:
Against their background, your decoration will look truly exceptional.

    To create a selected 3D element, use a thin and precise decoration brush. For more delicate decorations and shorter lines, Semilac Multitool 2in1 will work best, and longer lines can be achieved with N02 Perfect Line.

    If you prefer a subtler 3D effect, you can use a top coat, but for more raised decorations, it's worth using the previously mentioned building gel. After curing them in a UV/LED lamp, it's important to wipe each one with a cleaner. This way, you'll remove the sticky layer. Absolutely do not additionally secure the decoration with a top coat – you will lose the unique 3D effect look.

    The 3D effect on nails is a fashionable trend that allows you to express creativity and individuality. With the right products, such as a top coat without a dispersion layer and a transparent building gel, you can achieve three-dimensional patterns on nails. It's also important to use the right techniques and tools, such as a thin brush. Remember to always wipe the raised 3D decoration with a cleaner and avoid additional protection with a top coat. With these tips, you'll be able to create beautiful and impressive nail decorations.
