All over the country nail studios are opening their doors offering beautiful and unique manicures. And fashion blogs have been touting celebrities with some of their outrageous nail designs too, like Lady Gaga`s lace nails in her videos. But you don`t have to be a professional technician or even have a natural talent at doing salon manicures to have beautiful nails. You can actually create salon perfect nails in your own home with a few inexpensive nail art accessories that mirror the quality of the professional freehand designs at the salons, but at a mere fraction of the cost.
You can create some funky designs on your nails and use the fimo canes to add more elegance to them. There are many unique designs in Fimo art canes ranging from simple flowers and hearts to animal stripes, butterfly wings, bee, dragonfly, cat, cakes and much more to delight you with. It is important that your nails are properly shaped before you start with nail art. Acrylic nails can also be used if you do not have long nails. You can use these designer fimo canes on these acrylic nails too. You can also give a whole new look to your nails by wearing smart designs of nail art that make use of dried flowers, ceramic animals, rhinestones and other accessories like danglers. Match up your nail art design with your dress and look stunning.
You can cut the fruit sticks with a blade to get a thickness that you want and create amazing designs on your nails. Fimo art sticks are extremely soft and can be easily cut and stuck on the nails. If you are looking to dress your nails with something unusual, then this is worth trying and you will surely love it. These art sticks are the perfect accessories for nail salons and nail technicians to delight their clients with and nail schools can get these in bulk too to help students to practise a professional nail art application.
Nail art will not only make your nails look really different and beautiful from others but will also enhance the look of any outfit you choose to wear. If animals, food or marine life are not your style, you can always go for the basic shapes like diamonds, hearts, triangles and other geometrical designs for simple elegance. Glitter powder and glitter flakes in hexagonal shapes are also a very chic option for the holiday season, especially Christmas and winter.
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.
