Fashion is something which can often be defined as a trend but for some people it could be easily classed as an addiction. People love changing the way they dress and look according to the changes of fashion styles and trends. After all, it’s difficult to feel confident when we don’t have any confidence or pride in what we’re wearing.
Nail art is something that has exploded in recent years, and is one of the few fashion trends that revolves around individuality and an individual’s own creativity rather than copying styles seen elsewhere. There is the growing question as to why fashioning your nails is so addictive, especially as it is less noticeable in comparison to other parts of the body.
What Different Methods Of Nail Art Are Used Now?
When it comes to switching up your nails, there are a seemingly limitless number of ways to do this, and more methods being thought up all the time.
Unlike styling your hair, doing nail art is a skill that’s easy to pick up yourself, which prevents the need for going to expensive salons and spending money that’s unnecessary. Not to mention the nail art supplies to make them with are affordable enough for someone to have a varied collection.
The most loved ways of glamming up nails are:
- Wraps – These are one of the most simplistic ways of adding patterns to your nails that are complex to the point that they’re difficult to do by hand. They are usually stuck onto the nail and filed around so that they look natural.
- Foils – The same principal as wrap, only they won’t come with a sticky underside so you’ll need to glue them on yourself.
- 3D Metal, Acrylic, Stud Appliques – When it comes to 3D nail art, there’s no doubting how much love they get by both models and celebrities for them luxurious look. Whilst it’s acceptable to wear them on every nail, the look loved most at the moment has only nail per hand for a subtle enhancement.
- Stickers – Whilst nail art stickers may work under a similar principal as foils and wraps, they are used on a section rather than the whole nail, and usually come in creative lace and chain looking designs.
- Glitter – In the past people have preferred to use glittered nail polish, nail art glitter is something that makes the process a lot more controllable and comes in a number of different colours and styles.
- Crystals – Perhaps one of the most desirable looks to create are those with Swarovski crystals, these luxurious gems that are usually worn by those with privileged income and actually very affordable and give you a look that’s difficult to recreate anywhere else.
Nail art in general is an easy hobby to take up and get good at, and if you learn all the tricks of the trade it can also be a great way of making a little extra money on the side. Those who love enhancing their nails will appreciate the extra boost in confidence this can give you, and the satisfaction in knowing you’ve created it yourself and it’s long lasting.
