Going for a party? Your loveliest dress, shoes, accessories – you have everything organized to make you look the most beautiful woman in the crowd, but, what about your hands? Your hands and nails need as much as attention as your face. Every woman wants long, shiny, healthy nails and to fulfill their wishes, nail art has emerged as the most popular medium to enhance nail beauty. Add spunk to your nails with this very popular art. Simply put, nail art is the art of designing and beautifying nails. It is believed to have developed in Japan almost a decade ago. Infact, there are indications that a few Indian tribes also decorated their nails. It is a highly creative art and of late, has come to garner a huge fan following. Simple nail paint would no longer do for the hip and jazzy youth. Nail art lets you flaunt more than a single shade and various funky and cool patterns on your nails. The patterns can vary from animal prints to flowery designs. You can also get one matching your favourite dress or your bag. The process is lengthy and requires great amount of skill and patience. Firstly, the nails are cleaned and wiped dry. Next, a base coat is applied. White base coat is preferred over a transparent one as the design looks absolutely magnificent when applied over white paint. Activation polish is next in line which facilitates quick drying of the design. The desired design is finally painted on the nails. The process is rounded off with a coat of varnish to increase the life span of the paint. The art is very expensive and can burn a big hole in your pocket.
