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.
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.
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.
Kits: Nail art kits are useful for beginners as they give you everything you need to get started. They will usually contain the top and base coats polish and colours special brushes or dotting tools different patterns stickers and pins for the designs and possibly sometimes stones jewels or glitter depending on the kit. You may even want to get a kit with nail art pens that allow for you to draw directly onto the nail getting a totally unique design of your own.
Orange sticks are also useful for pushing back cuticles if you are careful as this has a flat edge at one end. The other end is pointed so this can be used for cleaning underneath the nails but for hygiene its best to throw them away after each use. One of the most important pieces of equipment is a good nail file. Now these come in many different materials. Most people use an emery board which is made from sandpaper but the grit wears quickly or falls off so these dont last that long. The glass nail file is a relatively new type that is now on the market. This type has been guaranteed never to wear out. This type has a bonus too. Research shows that with regular correct use your own nails will actually strengthen and it also helps reduce chipping and splitting.
Nail stamping kits are just one way to get unique and salon-looking designs quickly and easily. Now one advantage of going to a salon to have a technician either freehand or by using a stencil and air-brush apply unique nail designs to your nails is that the technician is able to use both hands to work on your hands. The art may come out looking more defined and professional as well. But on the other hand it can start costing you a lot of bucks to keep it up.
