Every kind of art has its day in the sun. From Andy Warhol`s pop art phenomenon to tattoos and body art, there always seems to be a new art form emerging that allows people to express their individuality and creativity. Tattoos are still a very popular art form, yet a new kind of body art, often referred to as manicure nail art, has taken the stage. Manicurists who perform nail art on their clients must rely on their artistic skills, combining together creativity, precision, and an eye for detail. Nail decorations can be applied to natural nails, as well as on gel and acrylic nails.
Once your nails are painted with a base coat, you can create your designs using the nail arts brushes that are available in different sizes based on the design you want to draw. Intricate designs will require more thin tipped and finer nail brushes to get the design right and visible. The use of toothpicks is also not uncommon especially if you are a beginner and want to improve your designs. For any nail polish application mistakes, you can use cotton swabs to remove the excess color. Make sure you do it quick as nail polish dries very fast. It is also good to use a different brush for each nail polish color so that you can save time.
Other nail art forms which you can do are the Hawaiian theme. Though a little difficult and may require professional help for the hula dancers, you can do some flowers, garlands and beach scenes yourself. If you are getting married, bridal nail art should surely be a part of your nail beautifying session. A manicure followed by pink varnish as a base and then using your imagination to paint tiny white flowers would make your nails look really delicate and ready for your wedding gown. Nail art is for everyone who wants to look good and show off their creative talents on their nails. It is a great way to attract attention and also maintain your nails at the same time. Remember to wear gloves while gardening, apply cuticle oil for moisturizing your nails and of course apply your top coat often to maintain the look you have so painstakingly created.
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.
Another fun and creative technique in the nail art accessories arena is Fimo art, available in just about every shape you can imagine, from simple abstract designs through complex looking fruits and animals. But using Fimo art is so simple, just anyone who`s into beginners nail art can use Fimo art and give themselves a very unique and interesting manicure that everyone will want to see and talk about. Nail gems in the way of faux gemstones that adhere to the nail with polish or dangles that require the tip of the nail to be pierced, are also a great options for adding some pizzazz to your manicure. Piercings are becoming popular for nails today too, especially with younger people who want more than just their ears pierced.
