Nail designs or nail art is a very simple concept – designs or art used to decorate the fingernails or toenails. They are primarily used to enhance a suit or brighten up an everyday look. Today, nail design and nail art are seen more as a fashion activity and as something that allows for creativity and expression of one’s style. On the latest catwalks of the best designers, you can find different nail designs and nail art, Hollywood stars and celebrities often show the new nail trends on red carpets, and of course, everyone can create nail art from home to match their mood, clothing or artistic personality.
History originally saw nail art as a display of social class, and the more extravagant it was, the higher the class was considered to be. Today it is accessible to everyone and has exploded in popularity, so much so that a NAILgasm documentary was launched to explore the growing trend of nail art from subculture to high fashion. In January 2014 Nailpolis: Museum of Nail Art was founded to give nail artists and nail enthusiasts the opportunity to share their designs with others. Membership in the Nailpolis Museum is limited to the invitation to receive only “quality content”.
How to make nail art?
If you want your nails to look their best, copy the nails of your favorite star, or just have a great design idea for them, there are a few ways to achieve the desired look.
The easiest option, but probably the most expensive, is to visit a nail salon or nail bar. With the increase in nail designs and the popularity of nail art, nail salons and bars have become commonplace in many cities and on the main streets. They have nail technicians who should be able to create any design you want.
Nail art kits are useful for beginners as they provide you with everything you need to get started. They usually contain top and bottom coat, lacquers and paints, special brushes or pointing tools, different patterns, stickers and pins for the designs and possibly sometimes stones, jewelry or glitter, depending on the kit. You may even want to get a kit with nail pens, with which you can draw directly on the nail and get a completely unique design.
If you’re thinking of getting involved in nail design, a nail art kit could be the ideal starting point. You can buy nail art kits from some of the biggest retailers.
If you want to avoid the costs of nail studios or just feel brave, there are a large number of instructions and tutorials for all kinds of nail designs on the Internet. You can do a quick search on Google and YouTube for a variety of other resources.
What you need
To get the designs or artwork you want, and you don’t go to a nail studio, you need the best tools and materials. One of the most basic tools for any aspiring nail artist is a brush. A set of brushes can be picked up very cheaply in most places, like in the Amazon. Nail files are also important, and you will probably need more than one. Your design ideas and the techniques you need for them play a big role in the tools you might need. Nail stamps and pointing tools may be needed to create certain designs.
These are just a few of the many tools available for nail art and design. Depending on the type of design or pattern you want to achieve, special tools may be needed to create these particular designs.
If you have decided to design your own nail art and you have all the necessary tools to do it, you should decide on a design. The range of options available to you is very wide, and over time you will become more and more familiar with various accessories that you can use to improve or enhance your nail design. Some of the most common designs are:
- Dots and spots
- The holiday theme, for example, the Easter bunny.
- Animal tracks
- French Manicure
These are just some of the many designs you can choose from. The choice is endless and almost any image or pattern can be reproduced on the nails.
There are many resources to find inspiration for nail design. On the Internet, you will find several nail art books, which are adapted to the nail designs you are looking for or your current skills. Alternatively, you can take a course at your local nail studio to learn the basics or get inspired by it first, not to mention that it can significantly improve your skills. And of course, the Internet is a treasure trove of information and ideas. With a quick search, you can find an infinite amount of nail art and design ideas.
The most important thing to remember about nail design and nail art is to be creative, express yourself, and – most importantly – have fun!
