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.
Nails art designs can be created using different methods. Novices mostly prefer to create their designs by copying them from nail art books or seeing them on the Internet. One can also learn nail arts through courses offered by some professional nail salons. However even if you possess minimal artistic capability you can create simple easy floral designs or geometric shapes which do not require high end training.
Today nail art ranges from the simplest French manicure to designs and art by world renowned artists that paint and sculpt unique design directly upon each nail. The techniques and tools used to accomplish these wonderful nail masterpieces are dotting tools stamping plates which are similar to plating nail polish and even the classic wooden sticks are still used to manicure and mix paints.
Well manicured and well groomed nails are always a strong indication of a persons personality and also reflect their style. Today the nail fashion trend is greatly inclined towards nail arts that is not only unique in every aspect but also gives a stunning look to the otherwise dull looking nails. A lot of young and fashion conscious women are taking on to nails art as the best way to get rid of dull looking plain nails. From just wearing a color on your nails nail art enhances the beauty of nails with its innovation in the form of small motifs danglers stones glitters ceramic flowers etc which will make your nails stand out for any occasion.
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.
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.
