Even beginners can create unique nail art designs using stamping kits like Konad and Salon Express, and start saving money over expensive salon trips. Konad and Salon Express are the most popular brands of stamping kits today and while getting a design manicure done at your local salons has its advantages, like the feeling of being pampered, it can also come with a hefty price tag depending on the type of designs you`re having done. For women, nails may be one of the most noticed parts of our bodies. Whether you are talking with somebody or just doing some work, your nails will always catch the attention of people around you. Appearances matter a lot with nails; at the very least it is very important to have healthy, clean nails. But today you can do even more, like having nail art designs applied to your nails that are uniquely yours.
Typically, a manicure involves the application of nail polish, but there are several nail art techniques that can be added to the vibrant coat of paint. Many nail salon technicians are adept in applying decals, stickers, gems, glitter and flowers onto the nails. Some individuals go so far as to have their nails pierced in order to insert small hoops and studs. Many nail enthusiasts choose to have acrylic or gel nails put on before having any nail art done. The shiny acrylic enhances the designs. Some nail art trends include affixing motifs for specific holidays, such as pumpkins for Halloween, hearts for Valentine`s Day, and snowflakes or holly for the Christmas holidays.
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.
