Our expert explains: Which colors for Asian nail design?
The classic color red with its many nuances is an excellent choice for traditional Chinese-style nail design, says our nail designer. In the Far East, the powerful color represents joy and happiness as well as the heart. It offers the perfect basis for high-contrast black or white characters and symbols - these combinations look particularly appealing. The color green is also popular because it stands for life and symbolizes spring - the best choice for spring-like Asian nail design. Also very popular is the imperial yellow , which symbolizes wealth, among other things. Red appears particularly elegant and luxurious in combination with shimmering gold.
