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.
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.
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.
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.
Another fun and creative technique in the nail art accessories arena is Fimo art, available in just about every shape you can imagine, from simple abstract designs through complex looking fruits and animals. But using Fimo art is so simple, just anyone who`s into beginners nail art can use Fimo art and give themselves a very unique and interesting manicure that everyone will want to see and talk about. Nail gems in the way of faux gemstones that adhere to the nail with polish or dangles that require the tip of the nail to be pierced, are also a great options for adding some pizzazz to your manicure. Piercings are becoming popular for nails today too, especially with younger people who want more than just their ears pierced.
