History originally saw nail art as being a show of social class, and the more extravagant the higher class you were considered. These days it is available to everyone and has exploded in popularity, so much so that a documentary NAILgasm, was released to explore the growing trend of nail art from subculture to high fashion. In January 2014, Nailpolis: Museum of Nail Art was founded for nail artists and hobbyists to share their designs. Membership on NailpolisMuseum is limited to invitation only to "maintain quality content.
In this nail art form, the polymer clay is used in the form of thin slices. Available in different sizes, colors and designs, these chips or slices are soft and fine and used to decorate nails. The canes of polymer are sliced using a razor so that perfect slices can be achieved. Creating designs using fimo art is not easy. Creative designs are difficult to make and need professional designers to make them. However, you too can make simple ones if you try and have a look at some of the pictures available online. The designs can range from simple hearts to even detailed fruits and vegetables. The designs when embedded into nails with the help of paints and brushes look fabulous and enhance the beauty of the hands further.
While many nail technicians can create sophisticated masterpieces with a free-hand technique using sharp brushes, or by employing a stencil, a new digitized method in nail art application has been introduced. The nails are cleaned and trimmed, just as they would be for a normal manicure, and a base coat is laid on and left to dry. Thereafter, a special polish is applied to allow the nail design to adhere properly. While it sets, a design can be selected by the client. Next, the client`s hand is placed in a cradle under a machine that sprays the design from the printer onto the nails. The printer is set to stop the process should the client accidentally move their hand. Although most machines have a wide selection of nail art designs to choose from, it is also possible for the client to create their own motif and have it scanned into the machine.
