While summer’s punchy color-block manis still linger, executing a one-color design on clients is practical especially when transitioning from season to season. There’s something visually intriguing about a white-on-white textured nail tip that is unquestionably elegant. The idea of single-colored nail art may seem like it would fall flat, but it is possible to deliver a memorable manicure using only one hue. Embrace monochromatic designs by mixing varied versions of tints and shades to get an undeniably interesting look with just one color.

To keep the manicure from feeling one note, play with patterns, glitters, 3-D acrylic designs, and embellishments to add depth and dimension. The adventurous client will surely gravitate toward a maximalist blend of purples or intermingle of blues. A conservative client may stray from the brighter interpretations of monochromatic nail art, but neutral colors deliver an equally notable finish, especially when topped with a matte or glossy finish.

If you’re a nail tech feeling a bit hesitant to give this on-trend look a try, pick a color you’re comfortable with and select an uncomplicated and chic design. Check out these notable interpretations and find your one-hue muse.
