Typically, a manicure involves the application of nail polish, but there are several nail art techniques that can be added to the vibrant coat of paint. Many nail salon technicians are adept in applying decals, stickers, gems, glitter and flowers onto the nails. Some individuals go so far as to have their nails pierced in order to insert small hoops and studs. Many nail enthusiasts choose to have acrylic or gel nails put on before having any nail art done. The shiny acrylic enhances the designs. Some nail art trends include affixing motifs for specific holidays, such as pumpkins for Halloween, hearts for Valentine`s Day, and snowflakes or holly for the Christmas holidays.
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.
These stamping kits also give you the opportunity to create your own nail designs, which you can change whenever you want. The whole process takes just minutes and produces professional looking nails from the comfort of your own home and with no additional expense when you want to change your designs. You can create fun and unique nail art designs in just three quick and easy steps - apply polish to the image plate, stamp it, and transfer it to your nails. You can stamp the designs on artificial or natural nails too. Use different color nail polishes on a variety of images to create colorful one-of-a-kind designs on your nails.
Sometimes, a sample design chart of nails created by a professional nail technician using the kit is also included, to make it easier for you to create your own unique designs using the stamping kit. The best part is that it comes complete with full instructions, tips and techniques for getting the best results. Before you begin, read the user`s guide to make sure you get the best out of your nail stamping kit. Ensure the surface you are working on is protected and that your nails are clean, dry and grease free. You can stamp the image design directly onto your natural nail or apply a base coat of polish in your favorite color before stamping on the image. You can actually use any completely opaque nail polish on the image stamps. You can even go on eBay and buy a generic, or what`s otherwise known as "fauxnad" stamper and scraper alone and buy your favorite image plates separately.
Nail art has unlimited potential of creating any look you could possibly want. It is only limited by your imagination. In the beginning, creating itcould be a little time consuming, but as you become a pro at trying your hand at different designs you will never stop. Nail art decoration is best left to a professional so that the look you want for your nails can be created easily in the least amount of time and be done in the correct manner. A professional will also advice you on appropriate nail care tips to maintain the look created.
