A perfect manicure will definitely make your hands look and feel great but if you add even the simplest designs to your nails, you`ll stand out from the basic and boring as someone who really knows and loves style. The right accessories can even add an amazingly stylish touch and complement the colors of the outfits you wear also. And even if you don`t leave the house often, for instance if you work from home, sometimes just watching a tutorial and trying out some different designs with some really inexpensive nail art accessories can make you feel better about your hands, although you may be the only one looking at them.
Even beginners can create unique nail art designs using stamping kits like Konad and Salon Express, and start saving money over expensive salon trips. Konad and Salon Express are the most popular brands of stamping kits today and while getting a design manicure done at your local salons has its advantages, like the feeling of being pampered, it can also come with a hefty price tag depending on the type of designs you`re having done. For women, nails may be one of the most noticed parts of our bodies. Whether you are talking with somebody or just doing some work, your nails will always catch the attention of people around you. Appearances matter a lot with nails; at the very least it is very important to have healthy, clean nails. But today you can do even more, like having nail art designs applied to your nails that are uniquely yours.
The creativity in nail art is endless and quite overwhelming. One can select from a wide assortment of nail decorations to suit their occasion - whether it`s hanging out with friends or a special party. Nail decoration accessories range from Fimo fruit pieces to 3D nail stickers, 3D art flowers, 3D ceramic animals, Acrylic stones, dried flowers, crushes shells, glitter powder, glass beads, rhinestones and much more. Out of the many varieties in nail art accessories, Fimo art sticks are something unique and give a tasteful touch to your nails. You can find Fimo art sticks in beautiful designs and shapes of flowers, christmas tree, butterfly wings, smiley face, bees, cat, fish, duck, dragonfly, ladybug, rose, feather, snowman, pirate, cake and box design. These come in a variety of colors to suit your individual color preference as well.
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.
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.
Beautiful hands are the mark of a well groomed person. Nails which are well cared for will make your hands look more appealing. However, if you really want to stand apart from the crowd you should consider using nail art techniques and ideas for your nails. Nail art is one of the most sought after nail decorating ideas among teens and adults today. It is much more than a manicure and beautiful nails. It is all about making your nails look really attractive by using various nail art pieces like 3-D ceramic flowers, animals, marine life and even donuts on your nails. The choice is unlimited. You just have to select the nail decoration according to your mood, season, the party you are attending or any festive occasion.
