What is the "Russian manicure"? It looks like an perfectly honed shape with a small length and a convex nail plate. As a rule, this design is performed in dark colors. And most importantly, it does not have even a hint of cuticle. "First, we carefully remove any gel residue from the previous manicure from the nails," Kamola Malikova, owner of the Los Angeles nail salon, explained to Refinery29. "Next, the master shapes the nail before polishing the nail bed. Only then is the cuticle carefully removed." In the last step, according to Malikova, specialists resort to scissors or a piercing drill. To make the coating last, first they apply a base nail polish, which is thoroughly dried, then a special gel for hardness, and only then is the color added.

"Russian manicure" without problems can hold on the nails up to four weeks, while other techniques require correction after two weeks. Of the disadvantages can be called the duration of execution, the entire procedure takes about two hours, and traumatic. Malikova advises not to do such a manicure yourself at home without special training. And even if you decide to go to the salon, it is worth looking closely at the conditions of the master and the observance of safety techniques.
