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 theyre 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.
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.
Tips for Maintenance 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.
Any of these accents will provide you with virtually unlimited choices for create stunning designs yourself or for salon professionals who are looking to offer new ideas to their clients. And since a lot of these techniques are relatively simple even the do-it-yourself beginner nail artist can have fun creating new designs like a pro. For example 3D nail stickers can add sparkle and shine to a classic French manicure. In fact design stickers come in so many varieties you can mix and match the designs and create an accent nail on each hand thats subtly different from the others. So you could apply lace 3D stickers to all but the ring finger on each hand and place gemstones on those accent nails.
There are a few different applications now in artificial nails which all have their own benefits. Gel nails are probably the most expensive but give a natural high gloss finish. This type allows your natural nail to grow underneath and if anything helps to strength them. A less expensive option and therefore more popular type are Acrylics. These are less natural looking than the gel type and do not allow your own nails to grow underneath because they are much thicker.
The style color and design selected for decorating your nails can vary either by season occasion or even your mood. Free hand designs are really sought after as they are easy to create on your own without spending too much. However should you decide to go in for the more intricate designs you can opt for a French manicure with gel nail art. As the holiday season nears some cool nail art designs to pep up the spirit for Christmas can be to use red or white nail paint and then decorate your nails with tiny Christmas trees holly leaves bells candy canes or even a little Santa with a toothpick. You can also add glitter to your nails to make them look festive and glamorous.
