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.
Other nail art supplies also include different collections of nail crystals rhinestones and acrylic stones that are gaining increased popularity due to the elegant touch they add to the nails. The rhinestones can be found in a number of sizes colors and shapes and you can take your pick to match with your dress and accessories. Among the various art nail supplies 3D flowers are also quite a craze and you can choose from an expansive and a beautiful range of nail flowers. You can also buy a dried flower kit and experiment with different shapes and colors every time. This kit offers you a variety of flowers in varied colors and also adds the much needed glamour to the nails. You can decorate you nails with different colors each time to match your outfit.
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.
Stickers are fun and convenient since you can apply them quickly add a fast-drying top coat and youre out the door with a fresh-looking manicure thats coordinated in color and design to the outfit youre wearing that day. Remove them later and change up the design for an evening out on the town removing only the top coat and sticker. Another fun and creative technique in the nail art accessories arena is Fimo art available in just about every shape you can imagine from simple abstract designs through complex looking fruits and animals.
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.
Once you have completed your nail designing it is important to maintain your nails properly to prevent your nail arts from chipping and to last long. The best would be to apply a clear nail polish coat over your nails every 2 to 3 days and try wearing gloves while working to prevent any nail damage. Most important avoid biting your nails to keep your nails in good condition and also your nail art intact.
