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.
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.
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.
Nail art originated in Japan. But it has gained world wide popularity in last ten years. Professional nailists are growing in many beauty salons at present. Many institutions are also offering courses on nail art. Many countries are arranging nail art workshops and exhibitions to promote this trendy art form. Not only finger nails, toe nail painting is also becoming the latest trend. All these development shows that, this unique, trendy and stylish art form is going to stay longer and stronger in the world of fashion.
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.
