Gentle pedicure is the absolute top of any fashion season. Neat short nails, well-groomed fingers, and feet without a hint of cracks, calluses, or roughness—these are the legs that you want to admire; they look flawless in open shoes and are a magical and aesthetic completion of the image. And the ideas for a gentle pedicure are endless. We have analyzed them and presented our selection of fashionable and always relevant nail designs that are interesting and quite simple to perform.
Gentle pedicure: WIN-WIN NUDE: LACONIC PERFECTION
The simpler, the better—a nude pedicure, delicate and refined, fully corresponds to this motto. Light natural shades on the nails are an ideal option for those who appreciate naturalness, versatility, and restraint. Regardless of the chosen image and style, such nails will look as organic and neat as possible. And it’s hard to imagine shoes that wouldn’t fit them. And which nude colors are the most trendy? In our opinion, they are as follows:
- milk and milk-white ;
- the entire pale pink and pale blue range;
- light tones of beige, sand, and coffee;
- pale mint and soft gray shades.
How to choose the perfect color for a delicate monochrome pedicure? Personal preferences and skin tone play a role here. We recommend trying several options and determining which one you like the most.
“BARE” NAILS: PEDICURE IN THE STYLE OF “NEGATIVE SPACE”
It is about the visual effect of bare nails. But only about the effect! Few people can boast of a perfectly smooth surface on the nail plates and an even color. Therefore, a huge range of camouflage coatings, namely bases, comes to the rescue. With them, you can create a very aesthetic manicure and pedicure that is gentle and concise. As a rule, their palette consists of the most natural shades. When applied to the nails, it is possible to quickly obtain the necessary aesthetics and create a “negative space” effect. Then you can cover the design with a top or add some decorative elements. It will be very gentle and natural. Try it!

Sequins, glitter, shimmer, mica… Tired of it? Then it’s time to work with manicure coatings, which are saturated with the most delicate additive—shimmering polish. These are the thinnest, shining flakes of various sizes and shapes. After applying it to the nails, they are visible in the pigment of the decorative coating but do not have an aggressive shine. The result is the wonderful effect of a gentle, sophisticated glow. Very beautiful and unusual! And a nice, gentle pedicure is guaranteed!
LIGHT GEL POLISH AND TOP WITH CONTRASTING SPOTS
At the dawn of the era of gel polishes, tops for them were exclusively transparent, with a glossy or matte effect. Now manufacturers have significantly expanded the range, giving life to finishes with various decorative additives. And those in which there are splashes of different colors deserve special attention. So, for example, a transparent top with black spots on a light background will create a design in the style of Italian ice cream with chocolate crumbs. White specks on a gentle pastel background are a snow fairy tale. And multi-colored flakes will allow you to create a delicate “candy” design.
GRADIENT: SOFT TRANSITIONS
Blurring the color and creating a smooth transition from more saturated to lighter is a trend that will never be forgotten. Many masters know how to work in ombre and gradient techniques, so they successfully embody truly virtuosic compositions on the nails. Lavender, pink, gray, and turquoise shades are best suited for them. Beautiful combinations of colors that allow you to create a gentle summer pedicure look very cool. The choice is up to the client!
FRENCH: A class YOU NEVER GET TIRED OF
What could be more universal and gentle than a classic design in the style of “French manicure”? A nude nail with an aesthetic white strip on the free edge is elegant, refined, and very feminine… And if you want to deviate from the classic design, you can choose the color of the strip and the background in other shades; the main thing is that they should be harmoniously combined. In general, imagination works wonders! And a soft pink pedicure is always on top!
RHINESTONES AND 3D ELEMENTS
Shining accents can add tenderness and romanticism, diversify the nail design, and make it special, unique, and unique. Pebbles, broths, rhinestones, crystal crumbs—choose what you like the most! Any of these decorative elements look very delicate and elegant on the toes. A pedicure with their use will be a spectacular addition to an evening look, and if you don’t overdo it, then to an everyday one. Don’t be afraid of shiny details! With them, you can create original compositions and implement the most unusual ideas!
In other words, a gentle manicure is not limited to a few pastel monochrome options. It is different, original, unusual, and beautiful. It all depends on how the client imagines it and how masterfully the masterworks. There is something to choose from!
