Image is very important to a lot of us; providing the perfect way to express yourself without having to utter a word. From the clothes we wear, to the way we do our hair, there’s a chance to tell a story. One of the biggest ways to ensure you tell the right tale, is through the protective layers at the end of our fingers – that’s right, your nails. Although small in size, your nails hold a lot of might; with an ability to create a major impact on your overall look. Nail art is becoming increasingly popular across the nation, and we’re here to make sure you’re ahead of the game. So, stay tuned to get all the info on how you can achieve those all-important statement nails.
When you think nail care, it’s more than likely, nail polish will come to mind. Most people are quite familiar with getting lacquered up, and probably only gone as far as a shift from pastels to brighter colours, as far as experimenting is concerned; with nail art designs often seeming that bit more out of reach. With this simple to use DIY kit, nail art just got easy. Here are all the essential gems you can’t afford to leave out of your kit:
Go Nail Polish Crazy
Nail polish is a great way to add a splash of colour to your nail art. With so many different colours and brands to choose from, no matter what your budget might be, there’s a luscious lacquer for you
Stick & Peel Stencils
Stencils are a staple part of your nail art kit, providing unique nail art designs with minimal fuss. All you have to do is simply place the stencil on your nail, apply the polish, peel of the stencil, and there you have it; a full set of nails that will have heads turning.
Jewellery & Gems
If you’re a fan of sparkle or bling, then incorporating 3D jewellery into your nail art designs could be the perfect way to compliment your nails, and have you standing out from the crowd.
Dress to Impress
This infamous saying rings true even where your nails are concerned. ‘Dressing’ your nails in wraps and stick-on’s mean that nail art has now never been so instant. Available in various designs, and style, you could have your dream nail shape in just a matter of minutes.
For anyone who might be a little more experienced with a pot of nail polish, you may want to challenge yourself. If this sounds like the inspiration you’ve been needing, then why not create your very own freehand nail art design. Using precision control nail brushes, and nail paint shades, you can really get your creative juices flowing and create unique designs from scratch.
It can get messy
Nail art designs can be a lot of fun; with little limitation on the arts and crafts tools you can use to create all the swirls, squiggles, glitz, and glam, that your heart desires. It’s a good idea to keep some cotton swabs, tissue paper, toothpicks, and acetone handy, to clean up your designs where necessary, and have them looking better than ever.
