Pictures and Photos of Nail Designs
Cupcake nails, butterfly designs, oh my!
Being an artist, one of the things I love doing is looking at pictures of nail designs. In my opinion, artistic nail design is an art all onto itself. Not only is it an art, but a difficult art in my mind because of how small the "canvas" is. Sort of like painting on a miniature canvas, right? Not only that but the canvas in curved and not square!
I became fascinated with nail art over 10 years ago when I received my first nail design with a pedicure. It was something simple - just a flower with a diamond in it but I couldn't stop staring at my big toe. At the time I was taking karate, and just seeing my flashy little toe flower made me smile!
Ahhh, art can do wonders for the soul, can't it? Even art on our fingers and toes!

To do or not to do yourself?
While I do have to admit I have absolutely nothing on my nails right now, these pictures of some new nail designs have lured me into trying some creative nail art in the very near future. It does help that I'm an artist and can do some of these nails myself, but I think some of the designs even a novice could do (like the newspaper nails, the step by step directions for that seem pretty self explanatory) The newspaper nails would be super cute for a writer or artist. They would also be great to use as a logo for a female writers business card (hmm.. maybe an idea for my next business card design?)
Some of the designs here I would not attempt myself but instead will print out a picture of the nail design and take it down to my local manicurist. I have found that nail art is surprisingly inexpensive given the delicacy of the art and the fine work involved. For myself it is difficult working on such a small area so I give these nail artists a lot of credit for the detailed work they do. I hope you have enjoyed the pictures of nail art designs. If you have any other interesting ideas let me know in the comments section. Thanks for reading!
