You can create some funky designs on your nails and use the fimo canes to add more elegance to them. There are many unique designs in Fimo art canes ranging from simple flowers and hearts to animal stripes, butterfly wings, bee, dragonfly, cat, cakes and much more to delight you with. It is important that your nails are properly shaped before you start with nail art. Acrylic nails can also be used if you do not have long nails. You can use these designer fimo canes on these acrylic nails too. You can also give a whole new look to your nails by wearing smart designs of nail art that make use of dried flowers, ceramic animals, rhinestones and other accessories like danglers. Match up your nail art design with your dress and look stunning.
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.
The essentials are: a base coat (to prevent nail discolouration and allow your nail polish to glide on smoothly), nail polish, and a top coat (to ensure your manicure lasts for more than a day). I like to use a quick drying top coat cos that saves oodles of time and is so convenient to use, but it`s also good to have a normal top coat or clear polish in hand for certain more complex nail designs. After trying loads of different brands, I`ve found that it`s so important to invest in good quality nail polish. These are more expensive but they`re worth it cos they last longer, dry faster and don`t get lumpy. I`ve had such bad experiences with cheap nail polish that now I`m just sticking to brands that I`ve used before (and like) and reputable brands. Orly, OPI, China Glaze, Sally Hansen and Essie are some of the good ones. It`s also a good idea to test out polish from a brand you`ve not tried before buying it.
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.
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.
