Nail Art Designs Guide

Nail art is beautiful and very feminine. A girl cannot help but to look and feel pretty when she is wearing nail art on her fingernails or toenails.

Nail art is fun as well as absolutely stunning.

There is much more to designing beautiful nails than the use of nail polish, topcoat and base coat. However, they are essential items on any nail art design lovers supply list.

Other things you may need are nail art brushes, shell sheets, nail art marbleizer or nail art dotters, glitter polish and glitter powders, confetti pots, foil sheets and foil adhesive. You might even like to use some stencils, striper tape, nail decals, orangewood sticks, and so much more...

Dotting and Marbling Tools

If you love creating different designs, you will want to include a dotting and marbling tool set to your nail art designer toolbox. This set includes five pieces. Each of these tools have different size tips on each end. This allows you more to work with so, you can create different designs.

They are very easy to use. They are of a nice size - making them easy to grip. They work very well and are easy to clean up after use.

While using the detailer brush you can apply different amounts of colorful painted shapes to your nails.

Angled Detailer Brush

The angled detailer enables you to make a better placement of your paint. Working with this brush offers you precision of placing the paint exactly where and how you want it.

Mini Detailer Brush

The mini detailer is a very tiny brush, whice enables you to make some of the most delicate of details. This is another brush that offers you presision while applying paint to your nails.

When you want to add broad thick colorful long lines, the striper brush is just the thing you need for even color.

Glitz and Glitter

Adding glitz and glitter to your designs help accentuate the design, while adding some shiny bling to your nail art designs. I like using glitter at different times, while doing my own nails.

Nail art designs are so much fun. You can go to a beauty salon to have yours done or you can learn how to do your own nail art designs at home. You can freehand your nail art designs or you can use all sort of tools and supplies that will help make the task of creating new nail art designs and styles so much easier. You can use anything from airbrush kits and tools to stencils, striper tape, nail decals, orangewood sticks, rhinestones and so much more...

Foil Sheets

You can use nail art design foil sheets to decorate your nails. Some of them you will use to completely cover the nail while you are decorating it. These work great when you are limited in time and in a hurry. They are also helpful by providing a complete design or you can use the foil to enhance your nail designs.
