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.
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.
You can create some funky designs on your nails and use the fimo canes to add more elegance to them. There are many unique designs in Fimo art canes ranging from simple flowers and hearts to animal stripes butterfly wings bee dragonfly cat cakes and much more to delight you with. It is important that your nails are properly shaped before you start with nail art. Acrylic nails can also be used if you do not have long nails. You can use these designer fimo canes on these acrylic nails too. You can also give a whole new look to your nails by wearing smart designs of nail art that make use of dried flowers ceramic animals rhinestones and other accessories like danglers.

Other nail art forms which you can do are the Hawaiian theme.

If you are getting married bridal nail art should surely be a part of your nail beautifying session. A manicure followed by pink varnish as a base and then using your imagination to paint tiny white flowers would make your nails look really delicate and ready for your wedding gown.
Freehand painting on nails: Nails can be painted freehand. But it should be done with proper care and right procedure. Before starting painting nails should be nicely trimmed cleaned and dried. First apply the base coat. Then apply two coats of desired nail colour according to the design. Then start painting on it with brush by taking desired nail colours. When finished let it dry. At the end apply a transparent top coat on the complete design. This helps the art stay longer. Beginners should start with simple designs. Let your creativity flow through the brush. It can be floral geometric abstract as per your style. For inspiration you can browse through many nail art galleries on internet also.
