The essentials are: a base coat (to prevent nail discolouration and allow your nail polish to glide on smoothly), nail polish, and a top coat (to ensure your manicure lasts for more than a day). I like to use a quick drying top coat cos that saves oodles of time and is so convenient to use, but it`s also good to have a normal top coat or clear polish in hand for certain more complex nail designs. After trying loads of different brands, I`ve found that it`s so important to invest in good quality nail polish. These are more expensive but they`re worth it cos they last longer, dry faster and don`t get lumpy. I`ve had such bad experiences with cheap nail polish that now I`m just sticking to brands that I`ve used before (and like) and reputable brands. Orly, OPI, China Glaze, Sally Hansen and Essie are some of the good ones. It`s also a good idea to test out polish from a brand you`ve not tried before buying it.
Nails art designs can be created using different methods. Novices mostly prefer to create their designs by copying them from nail art books or seeing them on the Internet. One can also learn nail arts through courses offered by some professional nail salons. However, even if you possess minimal artistic capability, you can create simple easy floral designs or geometric shapes which do not require high end training. While much of the nail art designs use a combination of nail polish colors, one can also add some glitter into the nail polish before painting to jazz up your nails. The use of other nails art accessories like rhinestones, acrylic stones, 3D nail stickers, ceramic flowers, fimo art pieces, crushed shells, etc to name a few are also being widely used to highlight the nails and give them a more sophisticated look.
In this nail art form, the polymer clay is used in the form of thin slices. Available in different sizes, colors and designs, these chips or slices are soft and fine and used to decorate nails. The canes of polymer are sliced using a razor so that perfect slices can be achieved. Creating designs using fimo art is not easy. Creative designs are difficult to make and need professional designers to make them. However, you too can make simple ones if you try and have a look at some of the pictures available online. The designs can range from simple hearts to even detailed fruits and vegetables. The designs when embedded into nails with the help of paints and brushes look fabulous and enhance the beauty of the hands further.
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.
Beautiful hands are the mark of a well groomed person. Nails which are well cared for will make your hands look more appealing.
