Different Techniques of nail art.

There are a number of different nail art techniques you can use to create unique designs. They can be used alone or combined with others to make a look that reflects you. Some of them are easy to learn, and you will need little or no practice to get a great look.  Others nailarts will require a little persistence before they look right.

Stamping

StampWithTopCoat

The stamping nail art technique  allows anyone to have detailed images on their nails. From animal prints like zebra stripes and leopard spots to intricate designs to images of fruit.  There are thousands of different images to choose from.

This nail art technique needs practice before it can be mastered. From the angle you use the scraper at, to picking up the design on the stamp and placing the image on your nail.  Each step has its own little quirks that need to be learned.

Sponging

Sponge

The sponge nail art method uses (as the name suggests) a sponge.  Sponging allows you to build up color slowly or easily blend two or more together. It’s great for creating galaxy or gradient nail art.

You can start with a gradient base and then add a stamped design on top. Alternatively you can tape off sections of your nail and add another color, allowing your gradient below to peak out from below.

Little or no practice is required to master this method.  It’s pretty much fool-proof.

Dotting

dotting-spots-in-dots-3

The dotting nail art method uses a tool to create dots. These can be used to make patterns, flowers, lines and rows.

You can also combine this with other techniques like stamping and sponging.

This method is great as you can learn as you go.  You can start with simple designs and then work your way up to more complicated ones.

Taping

taping-single-stripe-6

The taping nail art method allows you to tape off areas of your nail and apply another coat of polish. With this method, you’ll be able to create laser, half moon, French tips manis with crisp clean lines.

This is something that anyone with little or no nail art experience will be capable of doing easily.

 

 

D.I.Y – Nail paints from old eye-shadows

DIY thursday

Hello Girlies,

Here’s another exciting D.I.Y post for you to try this weekend.

Haven’t we always wondered what to do with our expired eye-shadows? While it really hurts to discard the expensive ones, I finally figured out a way that I could still keep them in my makeup box. Plus I get to name these nail paint shades! How awesome is that ?! 🙂

Here’s what you will need

  • Clear nail polish
  • Cheap eyeshadow. You could also use expired eyeshadow that may just be taking up space in your makeup drawer
  • Toothpick
  • A funnel. I made mine by wrapping a note card into a cone shape

DIY 5thNov

Step 1: Take out the eyeshadow you want to use. Crush it so that it’s a fine powder.

Step 2 : Empty a small amount of clear nail polish out so you have room for the eyeshadow powder. Place your funnel into the top. Add the colour into the bottle.

Step 3 : Use the toothpick to mix up the colour into the bottle. Put the cap on and give it a good shake until it is evenly distributed.

You now have you own custom shade of nail polish! Taadaa 🙂

Nailpaints – Colour me good for every occasion

Nail-Paints

Your choice of nail colour for a party is going to be vastly different from the shade you might choose for work or a date.

For shorter nails pick nail polishes that are more demure and subtle in professional settings. Longer nails are always attention getting no matter what polish colour you chose, so keep it classy and elegant and you will never go wrong.

Colours to wear for a professional environment – Neutral shades work best for the professional environment. You don’t want to let people judge you by the colours you wear!
