History originally saw nail art as being a show of social class and the more extravagant the higher class you were considered. These days it is available to everyone and has exploded in popularity so much so that a documentary NAILgasm was released to explore the growing trend of nail art from subculture to high fashion. In January 2014 Nailpolis: Museum of Nail Art was founded for nail artists and hobbyists to share their designs. Membership on NailpolisMuseum is limited to invitation only to "maintain quality content.
In Japan 3D manicure nail art has really taken the world by storm. In this technique actual charms are fastened to the nail and sculpture powder is used to produce a unique 3D look. From opaque polish to pearls funky geometric shapes and comic book art anything goes in this art form. 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.
2) Nail dotters Nail dotters help create dot and circle patterns. I use these all the time to create simple polka dot designs. They come in a variety of sizes. Starting out itll be good to get your hands on one that has a medium sized round nib on one end and a small one on the other so you can choose the size of the dots you want to create.
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.
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.
Every kind of art has its day in the sun. From Andy Warhols pop art phenomenon to tattoos and body art there always seems to be a new art form emerging that allows people to express their individuality and creativity. Tattoos are still a very popular art form yet a new kind of body art often referred to as manicure nail art has taken the stage. Manicurists who perform nail art on their clients must rely on their artistic skills combining together creativity precision and an eye for detail. Nail decorations can be applied to natural nails as well as on gel and acrylic nails.
