Tips to do nail art

Date : 01 June 2016

  • You can buy professional-grade nail art kits that include all the brushes, stripers and marbling tools you’ll need. You can also improvise using a toothpick or bobby pin to apply dots and swirl colors with precision, or you can buy thin-tipped detail brushes at your local arts or hobby store.
  • All nail art starts with healthy nails. Your nails should be even and well-shaped (and non-bitten). Your cuticles should also be healthy and not peeling.
  • You can purchase dotting tools to help draw different sized dots accurately.
  • When using the water marble technique glitter polish does not work as well as plain. The glitter tends to separate.
  • Reapply a clear top coat every two or three days to protect your art and keep your nails looking shiny. Apply cuticle oil daily.
  • You can also use a pin to make small and precise dots on your nails.
  • Use different implements for different colors, or clean your brush or tool between each color, just as you would clean a paintbrush when you change colors.
  • Have all of your materials together when you start your project. Because the polish is always drying, you are working against time. You'll need everything handy before you get started.
  • Use toothpicks for tiny details, paper reinforcements to create the dashing half moon effect, a straw to make a splatter effect. So then, you don't need that super cheap equipment when you already have household everyday items around you! It really brings in the professional look in you.
  • Cover skin around nails with nail polish remover then paint let dry clear coat, then wash hands four times.
