Once you have completed your nail designing, it is important to maintain your nails properly to prevent your nail arts from chipping and to last long. The best would be to apply a clear nail polish coat over your nails every 2 to 3 days and try wearing gloves while working to prevent any nail damage. Most important, avoid biting your nails to keep your nails in good condition and also your nail art intact.

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.
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.
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.
While many nail technicians can create sophisticated masterpieces with a free-hand technique using sharp brushes, or by employing a stencil, a new digitized method in nail art application has been introduced. The nails are cleaned and trimmed, just as they would be for a normal manicure, and a base coat is laid on and left to dry. Thereafter, a special polish is applied to allow the nail design to adhere properly. While it sets, a design can be selected by the client. Next, the client`s hand is placed in a cradle under a machine that sprays the design from the printer onto the nails. The printer is set to stop the process should the client accidentally move their hand. Although most machines have a wide selection of nail art designs to choose from, it is also possible for the client to create their own motif and have it scanned into the machine.
Other nail art forms which you can do are the Hawaiian theme. Though a little difficult and may require professional help for the hula dancers, you can do some flowers, garlands and beach scenes yourself. If you are getting married, bridal nail art should surely be a part of your nail beautifying session. A manicure followed by pink varnish as a base and then using your imagination to paint tiny white flowers would make your nails look really delicate and ready for your wedding gown. Nail art is for everyone who wants to look good and show off their creative talents on their nails. It is a great way to attract attention and also maintain your nails at the same time. Remember to wear gloves while gardening, apply cuticle oil for moisturizing your nails and of course apply your top coat often to maintain the look you have so painstakingly created.
