History of Nail Art The practice of nail decoration has existed for the last 5000 years and can be traced to the people of India who embellished their nails with henna. Now fast forward to 1932 when the French company Revlon released its first nail polish. It was available in a wide variety of shades and used pigments instead of dyes. Since the 1930s nail art as come a long way. The technique of airbrushing nails is still relatively new. It includes an airbrushing machine designed to perform manicure nail art which works with a compressor to create innovative and elegant patterns and designs on the nails.
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.
How is it made? A Vancouver Japanese nail art makes use of either a nail extension which is an acrylic nail chip or an artificial nail which you can glue on top of your fingernails. With the use of an extension the nail chip is attached to the tip of your nails. And to make 3d Japanese nail art on it the first step would be to coat your whole nail including the extension with a thin coat of UV gel. And then it is put under UV light to cure the gel. To make a base coat before the designs are placed alternate coating and putting under UV light 3 times is recommended. With a brush the technician puts on nail gels and mold and fold them to create the desired formation. The next step would be to attach small objects of the clients choice. After the masterpiece has been done it makes a trip under Ultraviolet lights to harden. And thats how you make Vancouver 3d nails.
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.
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.
How To Do Nail Art? If you want your nails to look their best copy your favourite stars nails or just have a great design idea for them then there are a few ways to go about achieving the desired look. Salons: The easiest but probably most expensive option is to visit a nail salon or nail bar. With the increase in nail designs and nail art popularity nail salons/bars have become common-place in many towns and high streets. They will have nail technicians that should be capable of creating any designs you wish.
