Fancy manicures with colorful designs has gotten to be a hot topic and very trendy these days. And there are a few basic nail art supplies that even a beginner should have on hand. It used to be you would simply put on a coat of nail polish and head out the door. Even professional manicurists didnt get too heavily into intricate designs. But today nail art really is an art where your nails are tiny little canvases on which you can create designs to express yourself any way you want.
1) Nail polish The essentials are: a base coat (to prevent nail discolouration and allow your nail polish to glide on smoothly) nail polish and a top coat (to ensure your manicure lasts for more than a day). I like to use a quick drying top coat cos that saves oodles of time and is so convenient to use but its also good to have a normal top coat or clear polish in hand for certain more complex nail designs.
In Japan 3D manicure nail art has really taken the world by storm. In this technique actual charms are fastened to the nail and sculpture powder is used to produce a unique 3D look. From opaque polish to pearls funky geometric shapes and comic book art anything goes in this art form. Manicure Nail Art Goes Digital While many nail technicians can create sophisticated masterpieces with a free-hand technique using sharp brushes or by employing a stencil a new digitized method in nail art application has been introduced. The nails are cleaned and trimmed just as they would be for a normal manicure and a base coat is laid on and left to dry. Thereafter a special polish is applied to allow the nail design to adhere properly. While it sets a design can be selected by the client. Next the clients hand is placed in a cradle under a machine that sprays the design from the printer onto the nails. The printer is set to stop the process should the client accidentally move their hand. Although most machines have a wide selection of nail art designs to choose from it is also possible for the client to create their own motif and have it scanned into the machine.
There are a few different applications now in artificial nails which all have their own benefits. Gel nails are probably the most expensive but give a natural high gloss finish. This type allows your natural nail to grow underneath and if anything helps to strength them. A less expensive option and therefore more popular type are Acrylics. These are less natural looking than the gel type and do not allow your own nails to grow underneath because they are much thicker.
Designer nails can really make you look fashionable and chic. Nail art is one way to make your nails look really good and it lets you experiment with as many designs as the occasions or seasons demand. Nail art is best done by a professional but you can also give the simpler designs a try at home with your friends. As you get better with the designs you will be able to create even complex designs with ease and unleash your creativity.
