Modern Nail art in Nail Salon

Hair and nails are two areas of the body that require a bit of care to look good. While most everyone takes care of their hair, nails are often a different matter completely. Unfortunately, people do look at your hands, and if your nails are bitten or dirty or unkept, that does make an impression. And not a good one.

Nowadays it is easy to find a nail salon to get your nails done. Nail salons have popped up seemly on every block. However, it does get a little expensive to use their services, especially for the advanced care of nail art. Nail art gives a personality to your nails that others will notice and it is really nice to be able to do it your self. In this guide, you will learn about the materials you need for nail art, the basics of nail polish, and adding that extra special touch.

For the basic nail art artist - someone wanting to do basic designs or not wanting to invest a lot of money, buying Stripe Rite nail polish or something similar is recommended, mostly for the small, precise brush that comes with it. You will also need regular nail polish with a regular brush in whatever color you prefer. For those willing to invest the time and money, getting a set of fine tipped paintbrushes, multiple bottles of nail polish, and topcoat and base coat is a good start.

Modern Nail art in Nail Salon-2Make sure to clean your nails thoroughly beforehand, and then apply the base coat to all of your nails. Make sure the base coat is dry, and then apply the main color you want on the nail. You can cover the entire nail, or be more specific and only do small areas to give your art a bigger effect. After letting that dry, come up with an idea of what you want.

Modern Nail art in Nail Salon-1A good starter art design is a simple flower; one dot in the center surrounded by five dots of either the same color or a different color. Another fun design that people rave about is the Zebra print; put one coat of a lighter color on your fingernail. Wait for that to dry, and then apply stripes halfway across the nail from opposite sides as you go down the nail. Do not be afraid to use multiple colors for whatever design you are trying to do!

Once the design is finished, wait for it to dry completely and then apply the top coat. Making sure it is completely dry is important or else the application of the top coat will smear the design across your fingernail. In the end, you will have a beautiful design that all your friends will envy!

Illamasqua Ruthless

I had this polish to try from my friend Day. First I thought I wouldn´t like it but when I started applying it I fell in love. This polish applies like a dream and looks so sexy! It is a medium red creme which really shines. I am sure that this color is very popular.

Tenhle lak jsem měla na zkoušku od Day. V lahvičce moc nezaujal, myslela jsem si, že mi nebude slušet. Jakmile jsem ale začala lakovat, zamilovala jsem se. Nanášení jedna báseň a ta barvička! Krásná sexy středně červená krémovka. Tenhle odstín je určitě hodně populární.

Hand Painting + Modern Bamboo + Black Rose

Hi all, while I was browsing last night, I stumbled upon a hand painting which made me want to try it.. Ever since I was a kid, I always wanted to draw and paint..When I woke up this morning, I was in the mood and I gave it a try, here's my new obra, hope you like it!

Materials Used:
88 palette eyeshadow
Nichido liquid eyeliner
Thumb nail "allue crazy red" n.p
Index nail "allue black night out" n.p

And here's the mani I made before I cut my nails short...I'm going to take driving lessons, long fingernails are a bit of a distraction and hassle, that's why I cut my nails back to its supposed to be length.. I named it "Modern Bamboo"..

And last but not the least... Johanne (thriszha) of FAB UR NAILS went over to our house last Sept. 26 together with Cheska. I'm glad to see you again sis, we did a lot of things,.. Thanks for all the tips and for the advanced bday gift for me! She gave me a Black Rose nail polish and some other goodies!
