painting nails1. Texture

Choosing a different texture for your accent nail is a less obvious but a highly recommended choice. It can be as simple as using a matte top coat with otherwise glossy nails, or going for a glitter finish. You can also try a nail wrap or nail art.

2. Complementary colour

Go back to the colour wheel and choose a complementary colour that would go with the rest of your manicure. When you do this it’s best to stick with the same shade intensity though, i.e. neons with neons, pastels with pastels, etc.

3. Shade intensity

Another option is to choose a darker or lighter intensity of your manicure shade – grey with black, light pink with dark pink, etc
