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.
Creating decorative designs on nails is not always easy and requires a lot of professionalism and creativity especially if you are planning on some intricate designs. A well done art can brighten up your overall appearance and complement your outfit to a great extent. Nail arts designing can vary from subtle and delicate designs to bold and funky designs. Nails art requires certain basic steps to be followed to get the application perfectly. Before you start with nail designing, make sure you clean and shape up your nails properly. Trimming your nails and filing them is necessary to get the best result. Even the best of the artists cannot create beautiful designs on your nails if they are in a bad shape and not well kept. You can also consider using acrylic nails if your nails are in a real bad shape and beyond repair. The nail art design can then be painted over these artificial acrylics.
Nail art has unlimited potential of creating any look you could possibly want. It is only limited by your imagination. In the beginning, creating itcould be a little time consuming, but as you become a pro at trying your hand at different designs you will never stop. Nail art decoration is best left to a professional so that the look you want for your nails can be created easily in the least amount of time and be done in the correct manner. A professional will also advice you on appropriate nail care tips to maintain the look created.
Nail designs or nail art is a very simple concept - designs or art that is used to decorate the finger or toe nails. They are used predominately to enhance an outfit or brighten an everyday look. Seen nowadays as more a fashion activity and something that allows for creativity and expression of one`s own style, the nail designs and art are considered to be a significant area of fashion and beauty. Different nail designs and nail art can be found on the latest catwalks of the best designers, Hollywood stars and celebrities will often showcase the hottest new nail trends on the red carpets, and of course anyone from their own home can create nail art to match their mood, outfit or artistic personality.
If there ever was an ephemeral art form, manicure nail art is it. Once your nail grows out, or the acrylic or gel nail needs to be removed, the artistry is lost. Many women get their nails done on a regular basis, but there are ways to make your masterfully manicured nails last a little longer. Applying a top coat after they are done, and every couple of days afterwards, will keep them looking like new. Moreover, use cuticle oil every other day to maintain nail health.
