Although manicure nail art is available at most nail salon nowadays, some individuals prefer to stop by the tattoo parlour instead. They forgo coats of polish and glittery decals and opt to get their nails tattooed. The design is etched into the nail via a single-needle tattoo machine. The surface of the nail is penetrated thousands of times per minute to embed micro-pigmentation. The tattoo will only last until it is clipped off, so there is no need to worry about loving that particular design for the rest of your days.
Nail dotters help create dot and circle patterns. I use these all the time to create simple polka dot designs. They come in a variety of sizes. Starting out, it`ll be good to get your hands on one that has a medium sized round nib on one end and a small one on the other so you can choose the size of the dots you want to create. HOW TO USE: Find a plastic sheet and drop a few blobs of nail polish onto it. I like to use name cards that are hard and feel a bit plasticky for this cos they`re small and disposable. Dip the round nib of your dotter into the polish. Try doing a few dots on the sheet/name card till you get the right size and consistency that you want. Do the same onto the surface of your nail. Be careful not to use too much pressure, that may cause the dots to look deformed. Remember to clean them after use and dry thoroughly. These tools are made of metal and susceptible to rusting.
Sometimes, a sample design chart of nails created by a professional nail technician using the kit is also included, to make it easier for you to create your own unique designs using the stamping kit. The best part is that it comes complete with full instructions, tips and techniques for getting the best results. Before you begin, read the user`s guide to make sure you get the best out of your nail stamping kit. Ensure the surface you are working on is protected and that your nails are clean, dry and grease free. You can stamp the image design directly onto your natural nail or apply a base coat of polish in your favorite color before stamping on the image. You can actually use any completely opaque nail polish on the image stamps. You can even go on eBay and buy a generic, or what`s otherwise known as "fauxnad" stamper and scraper alone and buy your favorite image plates separately.
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.
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.
Nails can be painted freehand. But it should be done with proper care and right procedure. Before starting painting, nails should be nicely trimmed, cleaned and dried. First apply the base coat. Then apply two coats of desired nail colour according to the design. Then start painting on it with brush by taking desired nail colours. When finished, let it dry. At the end apply a transparent top coat on the complete design. This helps the art stay longer. Beginners should start with simple designs. Let your creativity flow through the brush. It can be floral, geometric, abstract as per your style. For inspiration, you can browse through many nail art galleries on internet also.
