A perfect manicure will definitely make your hands look and feel great but if you add even the simplest designs to your nails, you`ll stand out from the basic and boring as someone who really knows and loves style. The right accessories can even add an amazingly stylish touch and complement the colors of the outfits you wear also. And even if you don`t leave the house often, for instance if you work from home, sometimes just watching a tutorial and trying out some different designs with some really inexpensive nail art accessories can make you feel better about your hands, although you may be the only one looking at them.
Nail art like 3D ceramic flowers can be used on a base coat of nearly any colour, the best being neutral shades like white and black or even green to make your flowers really stand out. For the marine life, like 3D turtles you can use a base coat of blue on your nails with some transparent varnish and paste the turtles to create an authentic look. Similarly, 3D donuts can be pasted on a base coat of a contrasting color of the donut to draw attention. 3D nail art is one of the latest trends in nails and the look will always call for more than one glance at your fingers.
Nail dotters help create dot and circle patterns. I use these all the time to create simple polka dot designs. They come in a variety of sizes. Starting out, it`ll be good to get your hands on one that has a medium sized round nib on one end and a small one on the other so you can choose the size of the dots you want to create. HOW TO USE: Find a plastic sheet and drop a few blobs of nail polish onto it. I like to use name cards that are hard and feel a bit plasticky for this cos they`re small and disposable. Dip the round nib of your dotter into the polish. Try doing a few dots on the sheet/name card till you get the right size and consistency that you want. Do the same onto the surface of your nail. Be careful not to use too much pressure, that may cause the dots to look deformed. Remember to clean them after use and dry thoroughly. These tools are made of metal and susceptible to rusting.
