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.
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.
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.
