Nail Art For Brides 2010

The wedding day is definitely a very special moment for all women. In that special day, we would all want to look our best by being the most beautiful we can be. On that day, the bride will be in the spotlight for a whole day. Friends and guests will look at the bride’s total garb, the hairdo, makeup, rings and other stuff. This is why most brides are careful with their choice of dress, makeup and even nail art. Several women go to a nail art salon to have a wedding nail art done prior to the wedding day.

Nail art stylists have a lot to offer when it comes to nail art for brides. It can either be conventional or special manicure. They present various attractive designs that are festive and original, specially made for the wedding day. The French manicure remains to be a famous wedding nail art. Even though many people use this for everyday life, this manicure is great for weddings as well with its white and pastel colors brilliantly matching the bride’s white wedding dress. This is great for women with short nails. Gemstones can be added for a more elegant look.
You can also have pictures or ornaments painted on your nails. Nail stylists are careful in choosing the right shades with this method. It is important that the color will match everything from flowers, jewelry to dress decorations. Nowadays it is not that difficult to choose right nail tint anymore because of the various evolutions that nail art has undergone over the years.

Finger Paints Strawberry Shake

Hi all!

How are you all today? I'm feeling better but I do still have a little bit of a headache though. No more houseparty, so hopefully I will be all better tomorrow! Today I have a polish for you that I bought from a very kind MUA'er: Finger Paints Strawberry Shake. I have to stop buying these kind of polishes. I'm sure I have about 40 of these licht pinkish colors that I don't wear too often.. Well, back to the post and on to the pictures!

Finger Paints Strawberry Shake, four (4!!) coats in daylight. Oh my, four coats. And still not completely covering up my nail line. Strawberry Shake is a light pink shimmery polish, which looks lovely in the bottle and probably lovely on a lot of other ladies as well, but I'm kinda "meh" about it. I have a lot of these pink polishes that truly look lovely in the bottle, but I'm just not feeling it lately. The fact that this one needs at least four coats, isn't helping either. Application was not so good. As you can see in the pictures, I had issues with bubbles. Lots of bubbles. Even Nubar Diamont couldn't eliminate them, so I had to figure out another way to get rid of them.

I decided to do a Ruffian inspired mani! Don't be to harsh on me, it's only my first try! I think it looks kinda hot! The basecolor should be another color, but this concept is pretty. I didn't expect to like this as much as I do. I used Orly Iron Butterfly on top of Strawberry Shake. I tend to use Iron Butterfly a lot, it already shows usage!

Do you have polishes that look pretty in the bottle, but not so good on the nails? And do you have the same issue with buyin a lot of these polishes, just like I do? I will pay more attention when I'm shopping online to what I'm buying lol. How do you like these kind of manicures, the so called Ruffian (inspired) mani's?

Thanks for stopping by!

Nail Art - A Brief History

3000 years Before Christ the Chinese used enamel on their fingers. They applied the substance and left it to sit for several hours, the result; a pink finish on their nails. This was the beginning of nail art and the earliest records. The Indians also practiced nail art in a similar period using a dye derived from the Henna plant. This sometimes implied a social significance. Egyptians were another civilization that used nail art early on. The colour of ladies nails were used to identify what class in society you were in. The higher class wore deep shades of red and lower classes wore pale shades. Another mother of nail art was the Inca civilization who actually painted images of eagles on their fingertips.

Nail Art - A Brief History-1The modernization of nail design began early in the 19th century. Orange wood sticks were developed in Europe beginning the process. Modern manicures began with this invention around 1830. The popularity created business opportunities and salons started to pop up across the US by late 19th century.

After the creation of the automobile and more importantly the mass production of them, a new range of paints entered the market on the demand of car enthusiasts giving new life to nail art. One of the first design to become poplar was what was knows as the "moon manicure". This nail art design involved painting the middle of the nail while leaving the moon of the nail unpainted.

Nail Art - A Brief History-2The next revolution came from he Revson brothers, with their invention of a new kind of nail enamel and their creation of the company Revlon. The third partner in the business was a Charles Lachman who inspired the "L" in the middle of the company name. Their use of pigments instead of dyes changed the industry dramatically. This allowed for new colours and designs to quickly be adapted. The success instantly made Revlon an industry leader by 1940 and it was clear that nail art was here to stay.

As time moved on, nail art became a symbol to communicate between subcultures. Goths for example started to sport black nail polish, as did rock stars and punks.

Nail Art - A Brief History-3 Since then, nail art has become more creative and artistic. Many trends have come about such as the addition of symbols and crystals, air brushing, acrylic and gel nail enhancements. Nail art has become integrated into the world of fashion and is now sported as an accessory to any look.
