Popular Designs Typically a manicure involves the application of nail polish but there are several nail art techniques that can be added to the vibrant coat of paint. Many nail salon technicians are adept in applying decals stickers gems glitter and flowers onto the nails. Some individuals go so far as to have their nails pierced in order to insert small hoops and studs. Many nail enthusiasts choose to have acrylic or gel nails put on before having any nail art done. The shiny acrylic enhances the designs. Some nail art trends include affixing motifs for specific holidays such as pumpkins for Halloween hearts for Valentines Day and snowflakes or holly for the Christmas holidays.
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.
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.
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.
The most technically advanced form of nail art is the use of special computerized digital printers that print designs and patterns that would not be possible otherwise or would be much more expensive for an artist to do it by hand. This technology is definitely the future for nail art and will allow women to finally be able to affordably design their nails as the ultimate accessory. They will be able to match their nails to their wardrobes sense of style and personality that was never before possible.
