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.
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.
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.
For example, 3D nail stickers can add sparkle and shine to a classic French manicure. In fact, design stickers come in so many varieties you can mix and match the designs, and create an accent nail on each hand that`s subtly different from the others. So you could apply lace 3D stickers to all but the ring finger on each hand and place gemstones on those accent nails. Stickers are fun and convenient since you can apply them quickly, add a fast-drying top coat and you`re out the door with a fresh-looking manicure that`s coordinated in color and design to the outfit you`re wearing that day. Remove them later and change up the design for an evening out on the town, removing only the top coat and sticker.
Nail stamping kits are just one way to get unique and salon-looking designs quickly and easily. Now one advantage of going to a salon to have a technician either freehand or by using a stencil and air-brush, apply unique nail designs to your nails is that the technician is able to use both hands to work on your hands. The art may come out looking more defined and professional as well. But on the other hand, it can start costing you a lot of bucks to keep it up.
