Nail art is the most happening thing in the world of fashion today. It will allow you to express your creativity and personality and will help express your individual style like never before. Nail experts or 'designers' are cropping up at happening salons all over the country to create art on your nails. There are endless paint effects that you can achieve as well as many decorative gems, foils and tapes to assist you in your creativity. These can turn your nails into a small canvas, on which you can create great pieces of artistic work. This can be achieved by freehand painting or by using an artist's airbrush. Nail piercing is also considered a type of nail art, which works best on artificial nails. This is achieved by attaching rings to tiny holes, drilled into the nail, which are attached to chains that are worn around the wrist. They also come with chain links to a ring that is worn on the same finger.

The accessories you can use in nail art is as follows:

Nail stripes: Nail stripes of various shapes, designs can be bought and used while decorating your nails. Peel off desired stripe carefully. Try using tweezers for clean effect. Starting at the cuticle, gently lay stripe across nail in desired position. Trim off excess. Gently apply pressure with fingertip to secure it in place.

Gold & silver nail charms: Gold and silver charms are also a very good nail art accessory which gives a very good nail design and is easy to use. Choose desired charm and peel off paper backing. Place charm on nail in preferred location. Gently press down with fingertip to secure.

The Cloth Effect:
Give your nails two coats of paint and then while they are still slightly wet, press a patterned (lint free) piece of cloth or chamois leather lightly on them. As the cloth is lifted, it leaves a pattern similar to the texture of the cloth on the nails.

Assorted stars & dots: You can either use stars and dots to paint your nail or use nail polish with stars and glitter floating in them. For nail art with assorted stars and dots, pour out a small amount of stars or dots onto a paper plate. Moisten end of manicure stick. Pick up individually by touching moistened end of stick to star or dot. Place on nail in desired location, pressing gently to secure.
NOTE: If the star or dot is not securing to nail, apply a small amount of Nail Art Sealer to nail first.

Nail stickers: Nail stickers also give the desired effect and you can also choose various designs. Remove selected sticker from sheet using tweezers. Place onto nail in desired location. Gently apply pressure with finger to secure.

Your Own Design:
Instead of using ready-made designs you can let your imagination go wild and have your own nail art design. Paint a base colour of any shade you like and let your nails dry. Then by freehand painting or by using an artist's airbrush create designs on your nails instead of a canvas!
