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.
1) Nail polish 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 its also good to have a normal top coat or clear polish in hand for certain more complex nail designs.
History of Nail Art The practice of nail decoration has existed for the last 5000 years and can be traced to the people of India who embellished their nails with henna. 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.
Professional nail artists: When nail art can be done at home there are professionals in beauty salon for this job called nailist. Professional nailist do it in a better way. They use right materials and proper techniques to make it perfect. Using accessories on nails: Many decorative gems foils tiny flowers and other such accessories are available in market which can be used to give nail art a three dimensional look. Earlier nail paints were available with stars and glitters floating in them. But now a days such materials are available separately. apply a small amount of nail art sealer on nail first. Then pour out some decorative items on a plate. Now pick up desired items with the help of a tweezer or a manicure stick. Then place on the nail carefully and put little pressure on it. Let it dry.
Other nail art supplies also include different collections of nail crystals rhinestones and acrylic stones that are gaining increased popularity due to the elegant touch they add to the nails. The rhinestones can be found in a number of sizes colors and shapes and you can take your pick to match with your dress and accessories. Among the various art nail supplies 3D flowers are also quite a craze and you can choose from an expansive and a beautiful range of nail flowers. You can also buy a dried flower kit and experiment with different shapes and colors every time. This kit offers you a variety of flowers in varied colors and also adds the much needed glamour to the nails. You can decorate you nails with different colors each time to match your outfit.
Winter calls for shiny metallic finish for the nails and then painting snowflakes with white nail paint on them. When it is Halloween you can use black varnish as a base coat and then make figures of skulls Jack o Lantern ghosts and various Halloween figures. If you think animal prints go well with your outfit you can go for the Zebra Dalmatian or Tiger designs. A white nail base with appropriate color stripes or dots to represent the animal and you are done with your look.
