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.
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.
