The practice of nail decoration has existed for the last 5000 years and can be traced to the people of India who embellished their nails with henna. Now fast forward to 1932, when the French company Revlon released its first nail polish. It was available in a wide variety of shades and used pigments instead of dyes. Since the 1930s, nail art as come a long way. The technique of airbrushing nails is still relatively new. It includes an airbrushing machine designed to perform manicure nail art, which works with a compressor to create innovative and elegant patterns and designs on the nails.
Enter the latest craze, nail stamping kits, offering even beginner nail artist an inexpensive way to have nearly professional looking nail designs but without the expense of a salon, designs that be changed every day if you want! Stamping kits, whether you buy the higher end Konad, the middle end Salon Express, or just a simple cheap stamper with a couple of plates and get the rest of the plates from online stores, nail stamping is an inexpensive and fun way to learn a new technique for your own look of nail designs.
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.
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.
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.
