Nail art has emerged as one of the most popular nail beautifying ideas among the teens today. They stop at nothing to get the latest look and express their ideas through nail art. Nail paint of varied hues teamed with colorful stones, stickers, beads are a hot favorite. Nail jewellery like dangles are also used to create a unique look and attract a lot of attention. The style, color and design selected for decorating your nails can vary either by season, occasion or even your mood. Free hand designs are really sought after as they are easy to create on your own without spending too much. However, should you decide to go in for the more intricate designs, you can opt for a French manicure with gel nail art.
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.
Each kit provides the directions how to use the tools and you can find countless nail design tutorials on YouTube if you`d rather be shown how to do it, like the videos below. And the results are nothing less than fabulous, giving you beautiful nails in record time without having to drive to a salon and wait your turn. The styles and amounts of designs that you can get with nail stamping kits and extra stamping plates are similar designs to what you can get at your local salon, but without the wait and without the price tag.
Although manicure nail art is available at most nail salon nowadays, some individuals prefer to stop by the tattoo parlour instead. They forgo coats of polish and glittery decals and opt to get their nails tattooed. The design is etched into the nail via a single-needle tattoo machine. The surface of the nail is penetrated thousands of times per minute to embed micro-pigmentation. The tattoo will only last until it is clipped off, so there is no need to worry about loving that particular design for the rest of your days.
Designer nails can really make you look fashionable and chic. Nail art is one way to make your nails look really good and it lets you experiment with as many designs as the occasions or seasons demand. Nail art is best done by a professional, but you can also give the simpler designs a try at home with your friends. As you get better with the designs you will be able to create even complex designs with ease and unleash your creativity.
History originally saw nail art as being a show of social class, and the more extravagant the higher class you were considered. These days it is available to everyone and has exploded in popularity, so much so that a documentary NAILgasm, was released to explore the growing trend of nail art from subculture to high fashion. In January 2014, Nailpolis: Museum of Nail Art was founded for nail artists and hobbyists to share their designs. Membership on NailpolisMuseum is limited to invitation only to "maintain quality content.
