Nail art is the latest fashion to hit women. Stylish and trendy, everybody's doing it and that includes Celebes's. You can get your nails done yourself if you have steady hands and are artistic or you can get them painted at a nail salon. Here, a nail artist will do whatever design and place any accessories you want. It may be a little expensive but the results are worth it.
Nail art can include stickers, paint jobs and even jewels. Cartoon characters are very popular on hand painted nail art. Tricky but beautiful, they're a testament to a nail artist talent. You can also choose to go for stickers which are easier to place and can be done by yourself. Just remember to put a top coat to fix everything in place.
Jewel-tipped nails are also the latest in fashion. You could ask the artist to apply a light colored polish and top the look off with studs on the tips. Flower motifs are also a good idea as they're pretty and feminine. For the more funky lot, you can go for designs that are similar to tattoo art. For a French manicure look, you can buy just the tips and ask a nail salon to attach them for you. Since French manicures can be tricky to do yourself, buying fake tips will work better.
For those who want to do things themselves, there are a few tips to consider. Decide what jewels or art you want and get them from a good salon or nail art store. Your nails should be clean, preferably manicured before you begin. Next, apply nail polish and place the jewels or stickers according to the instructions. Then, apply a top coat so that everything is secured. Once dry, move the jewels to see if they're set properly. If they do, apply another top coat till it can't be moved anymore.
Nail art is a great way of pampering your nails and having a bit of fun. It can also dress up an otherwise dull outfit. If there's a special occasion on the horizon, visit the salon and treat yourself to a professional session. You won't be disappointed.
