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.

Manicure Nail Art Goes Digital 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 clients 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.
