Nails are all the buzz this summer - they're fun, easy to do and they're new fashion accessory. Take your look effortlessly from work to play to everywhere in between with these top 5 nail art trends of the summer.
The 2011 fall shades are great tools for easy nail designs. First, you can make French tips with 'My Address Is Hollywood' for the base and 'I Eat Mainly Lobster' for the tips. Second, you may come up with a unique fall design. Just apply 3 coats of 'Get in the Espresso Lane' as your base. After doing so, grab a green shatter OPI nail polish and apply it on top of the 'Get in the Espresso Lane'. Clever, isn't it?
Nail polish is the foundation of your design. It does not matter if you are using french nail designs or not, because nail polish is appropriate either way. If you desire the natural look, you can enhance the beauty of your nails simply by painting a clear gloss over them. If you want a classic look like the very popular French manicure, you need both white and clear nail polish at minimum. If you are at the salon, you may want to get nail designs. The color of your nail polish can make or break your easy nail design.
This is a design that's fun and artistic, and very easy to do. Start with nails painted in a light color, such as white, light blue, light pink, or something similar. Allow them to completely dry. Dip your fingernail in rubbing alcohol and then press newspaper to the nail, print side against the nail. Hold it for 20 to 30 seconds and remove the newspaper. The print should have transferred to the nail. After waiting about 1 minute, use a high-quality sealing polish to keep the print on the nail.
Nail art can also be a combination of paint and various kinds of decorations. Paint and stickers, paint and glitter, and paint and stones are some of the most popular combinations.
