Creating decorative designs on nails is not always easy and requires a lot of professionalism and creativity especially if you are planning on some intricate designs. A well done art can brighten up your overall appearance and complement your outfit to a great extent. Nail arts designing can vary from subtle and delicate designs to bold and funky designs. Nails art requires certain basic steps to be followed to get the application perfectly. Before you start with nail designing, make sure you clean and shape up your nails properly. Trimming your nails and filing them is necessary to get the best result. Even the best of the artists cannot create beautiful designs on your nails if they are in a bad shape and not well kept. You can also consider using acrylic nails if your nails are in a real bad shape and beyond repair. The nail art design can then be painted over these artificial acrylics.
Nail art will not only make your nails look really different and beautiful from others but will also enhance the look of any outfit you choose to wear. If animals, food or marine life are not your style, you can always go for the basic shapes like diamonds, hearts, triangles and other geometrical designs for simple elegance. Glitter powder and glitter flakes in hexagonal shapes are also a very chic option for the holiday season, especially Christmas and winter.
Nails can be painted freehand. But it should be done with proper care and right procedure. Before starting painting, nails should be nicely trimmed, cleaned and dried. First apply the base coat. Then apply two coats of desired nail colour according to the design. Then start painting on it with brush by taking desired nail colours. When finished, let it dry. At the end apply a transparent top coat on the complete design. This helps the art stay longer. Beginners should start with simple designs. Let your creativity flow through the brush. It can be floral, geometric, abstract as per your style. For inspiration, you can browse through many nail art galleries on internet also.
