The practice of nail decoration has existed for the last 5000 years and can be traced to the people of India who embellished their nails with henna. Now fast forward to 1932, when the French company Revlon released its first nail polish. It was available in a wide variety of shades and used pigments instead of dyes. Since the 1930s, nail art as come a long way. The technique of airbrushing nails is still relatively new. It includes an airbrushing machine designed to perform manicure nail art, which works with a compressor to create innovative and elegant patterns and designs on the nails.
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.
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.
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.
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.
