What Is a Russian Manicure?
The Russian manicure first appeared in Russia and Ukraine, but with the TikTok hype, many manicurists in the USA and UK now offer this technique. This type of manicure is known for focusing more on cleaning the nail plate, nail bed and cuticles. Manicurists make the skin on the fingers look super soft and well cleaned. Also, careful shaping of the nails is a must. Some prefer using the “old school” way with a nail file, while others prefer the drill. Russian manicure is a dry type of manicure, because it does not involve dipping the fingers in water or acetone.
Once the cleaning of the nails is done, they normally proceed with a regular nail polish or gel. Normally, there’s no loud decorations. That’s why we mentioned the “clean girl” aesthetic earlier. We think that the Russian manicure is what everyone that loves this aesthetic, should try.
What’s The Difference Between a Regular and a Russian Manicure?
First, as we already mentioned, the Russian manicure uses a “dry” type of technique, which does not involve soaking your nails in acetone or water. To clean the nail plate and bed, trained manicurists use a drill and scissors to clean the cuticles.

Now, many women prefer the Russian method, since your nails look so clean, that it is almost unreal. That’s why this time of manicure gained so many followers on TikTok, watching the videos on how it is made.

We all know that Kenny loves the “clean girl” vibes!
