A Vancouver Japanese nail art makes use of either a nail extension, which is an acrylic nail chip, or an artificial nail, which you can glue on top of your fingernails. With the use of an extension, the nail chip is attached to the tip of your nails. And to make 3d Japanese nail art on it, the first step would be to coat your whole nail including the extension with a thin coat of UV gel. And then, it is put under UV light to cure the gel. To make a base coat before the designs are placed, alternate coating and putting under UV light 3 times is recommended. With a brush, the technician puts on nail gels and mold and fold them to create the desired formation. The next step would be to attach small objects of the client`s choice. After the masterpiece has been done, it makes a trip under Ultraviolet lights to harden. And that`s how you make Vancouver 3d nails.
As the holiday season nears, some cool nail art designs to pep up the spirit for Christmas can be to use red or white nail paint and then decorate your nails with tiny Christmas trees, holly leaves, bells, candy canes or even a little Santa with a toothpick. You can also add glitter to your nails to make them look festive and glamorous. Winter calls for shiny metallic finish for the nails and then painting snowflakes with white nail paint on them. When it is Halloween, you can use black varnish as a base coat and then make figures of skulls, Jack o Lantern, ghosts and various Halloween figures.
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.
Many decorative gems, foils, tiny flowers and other such accessories are available in market which can be used to give nail art a three dimensional look. Earlier nail paints were available with stars and glitters floating in them. But now a days such materials are available separately. apply a small amount of nail art sealer on nail first. Then pour out some decorative items on a plate. Now pick up desired items with the help of a tweezer or a manicure stick. Then place on the nail carefully and put little pressure on it. Let it dry.
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.
There are too many design accessories available today to even begin to make a complete list. But some of the more popular and trendy are things like Fimo art, designer nail wraps like foils, 3D nail stickers with fake gems, and designer nail tips. In fact, you can even buy molded designs specifically made just for creating 3D nail art or you can pierce your nails and add dangling jewelry. Any of these accents will provide you with virtually unlimited choices for create stunning designs yourself or for salon professionals who are looking to offer new ideas to their clients. And since a lot of these techniques are relatively simple, even the do-it-yourself beginner nail artist can have fun creating new designs like a pro.
