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. When doing chores and tasks that can damage your hands, protect your nails from chips, dents or cracks by wearing gloves.
These stamping kits also give you the opportunity to create your own nail designs, which you can change whenever you want. The whole process takes just minutes and produces professional looking nails from the comfort of your own home and with no additional expense when you want to change your designs. You can create fun and unique nail art designs in just three quick and easy steps - apply polish to the image plate, stamp it, and transfer it to your nails. You can stamp the designs on artificial or natural nails too. Use different color nail polishes on a variety of images to create colorful one-of-a-kind designs on your nails.
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.
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.
