Creating decorative designs on nails is not always easy and requires a lot of professionalism and creativity especially if you are planning on some intricate designs. A well done art can brighten up your overall appearance and complement your outfit to a great extent. Nail arts designing can vary from subtle and delicate designs to bold and funky designs. Nails art requires certain basic steps to be followed to get the application perfectly. Before you start with nail designing make sure you clean and shape up your nails properly. Trimming your nails and filing them is necessary to get the best result. Even the best of the artists cannot create beautiful designs on your nails if they are in a bad shape and not well kept. You can also consider using acrylic nails if your nails are in a real bad shape and beyond repair. The nail art design can then be painted over these artificial acrylics.
After trying loads of different brands Ive found that its so important to invest in good quality nail polish. These are more expensive but theyre worth it cos they last longer dry faster and dont get lumpy. Ive had such bad experiences with cheap nail polish that now Im just sticking to brands that Ive used before (and like) and reputable brands. Orly OPI China Glaze Sally Hansen and Essie are some of the good ones. Its also a good idea to test out polish from a brand youve not tried before buying it.
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.
