3) Nail stripers These to me are an absolute essential. They are nail polishes that come with a long thin brush rather than the usual flat and broad ones. I use them for painting lines and adding random flicks of colour. They are so easy to use and very versatile. I recommend getting two colours white and black when you first start. Brands like LA Colors have a wide range of colours and come pretty cheap so have fun with it!
While much of the nail art designs use a combination of nail polish colors one can also add some glitter into the nail polish before painting to jazz up your nails. The use of other nails art accessories like rhinestones acrylic stones 3D nail stickers ceramic flowers fimo art pieces crushed shells etc to name a few are also being widely used to highlight the nails and give them a more sophisticated look.
Every kind of art has its day in the sun. From Andy Warhols pop art phenomenon to tattoos and body art there always seems to be a new art form emerging that allows people to express their individuality and creativity. Tattoos are still a very popular art form yet a new kind of body art often referred to as manicure nail art has taken the stage. Manicurists who perform nail art on their clients must rely on their artistic skills combining together creativity precision and an eye for detail. Nail decorations can be applied to natural nails as well as on gel and acrylic nails.
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.
Another reason for the recent popularity of nail styling could be attributed to the sudden obsession with nail polish where women were looking for something else besides just ordinary nail polish. Besides the New York Times reported an increase of 67% in nail polish sales in America alone. It goes to show that nail art is an inexpensive way for women all over to make a fashion statement about themselves. Retailers seem to think that this new craze is womens way of beautifying their hands and fingers much like they would have done with diamonds in times gone by. Only now it is deemed so much safer in that their chances of getting robbed is very slim in comparison.
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.
