Today nail art ranges from the simplest French manicure to designs and art by world renowned artists that paint and sculpt unique design directly upon each nail. The techniques and tools used to accomplish these wonderful nail masterpieces are dotting tools stamping plates which are similar to plating nail polish and even the classic wooden sticks are still used to manicure and mix paints.
The finishing touches to any womans attire should be her nails. But most of us tend to forget and neglect this area. With nail art on the up and up there is no excuse. You can choose to do them yourself at home or be pampered and go to a salon. Long nails always make a girl feel more elegant and creative nail art completes the look. With nail art you can experiment with designs and colours. You may feel that its expensive but there are plenty of products on the market all at an affordable cost. It just takes time to perfect the art which is the highest cost you will have to pay.
There is a relatively new type of artificial nail now called the Stiletto nail. These are long and very pointed transforming short dumpy fingers into long elegant ones. These were originally popular in Russia but are now generally available everywhere. You will only get the best results with your nail art if you use the best equipment. Preparation is always the key to good nails. You must first apply a nourishing cream to help soften cuticles and keep the nail in good condition. Then with a cuticle remover you must gently push back the cuticle.
So you want to try your hand at DIY nail art but where do you start? The first thing you need to do is get your hands on some basic nail art tools. This is a list of my 5 essential DIY nail art tools.
MAKE YOUR OWN: Its also easy to create your own nail dotter using stuff you have lying around your home. Bobby pins are a cheap and convenient alternative. Just bend them out straight and use the round tips at the end like normal dotters. Because all you need is a round end you can use anything that resembles a dotter like the back of an eyeliner pencil cap for example.
Permanent Nail Art Although manicure nail art is available at most nail salon nowadays some individuals prefer to stop by the tattoo parlour instead. They forgo coats of polish and glittery decals and opt to get their nails tattooed. The design is etched into the nail via a single-needle tattoo machine. The surface of the nail is penetrated thousands of times per minute to embed micro-pigmentation. The tattoo will only last until it is clipped off so there is no need to worry about loving that particular design for the rest of your days.
