Bridal Nails

Pinks, Frenches, and flowers ruled in the bridal nail art designs that four NAILS readers came up with. “It is such a privilege to do wedding nails. Photographers love to take pictures of the couple holding hands, so there will almost always be a shot with your nails in their wedding album,” says Tricia Baldwin of Studio Salons in West Jordan, Utah. “I take into consideration what type of person the bride is when choosing what nails to do. Some brides are conservative, so I do a French manicure look with simple flowers. Other brides are funky so I will give them a French with a stripe of their wedding colors, then top it off with some jewels or flowers.” Use these designs as inspiration when your own wedding-bound clients come calling.

Nail Art Picture

More nail art picture!
Nail art seems to be catching on in fashion lately here in Manila, the Philippines. I see a lot of hand and foot salons adding nail art to their list of services. I can understand why women love having their nails done and consequently, adding some art into it and not just plain colors. It is another way of expressing oneself and standing out of the crowd.
We often consider our nails as just a simple part of our hands and feet. But with nail art becoming popular among the middle class, it's changing everyone's perspective and ordinary people are beginning to appreciate the artistic beauty of creative nail arts.

Nail art on one short French manicured nail. Many manicures with nail art are on long nails (more nail length gives you more canvas to paint on), and each nail has art affixed to or painted on it. But this photo of bridal nails shows you that could can wear nail art on short nails, and keep it simple with just one enhanced nail. Good place to start if you're new to nail art. You can experiment with one nail before you get a full set of decorated fingernails.
Round pink nail tips with a silver glitter line and small flower stickers. This type of line at the end of the nail bed is a popular alternative French Manicure style. It is also fairly easy to do yourself because you can do it freehand without a guide. Nail art stickers in a lot of nail art designs are applied to each nail but alternating fingernails looks fine, too.

Isn't it time you treated yourself to a spa visit that leaves you with immaculate toenails? This foot model has perfectly manicured toenails for a very healthy clean look. Her cuticles were professionally removed and beautifully rounded. Her toenails were painted with a soft light pink polish and modestly decorated with thin pretty white tips. It is a very simple style but it looks so nice. This new pedicure is a perfect summer beauty idea.
Q. Where can I find a nail art salon?
A. If you usually do your own nails, or get basic manicures in one block color, you may be surprised to know the vast majority of nail salons in America offer nail art. According to poll results in an industry magazine, in fact, nail technicians in 92.2% of salons can enhance your nails (Nails mag, March 2007). Call ahead or check nail salon websites to see if art is included in their list of available services. Be specific in your inquiries.
More specific survey results showed a wide range in the types of nail art available. Over 75% of salons say they can do mixed media, but only 15.7% of manicurists are skilled in free-hand airbrushing. That number drops in half if you want photos on your nails. Fortunately, though, 68.3% offer one of the most popular nail art looks: custom French manicures.
 Brides getting married this summer may like to enhance the classic wedding look of French nails with a little nail art design. You can dress up one fingernail with 3D nail art and lightly paint it and your other nails. Wearing a gold wedding ring? How about a light dusting of gold on your French Manicure? Try something old (French) with something new (art).

Red Rose with Black Leaves

Hello my Sweet Nail-Art Lovers.
Today's manicure turned out really great, however all the pictures ended up king of faded.
The idea of this manicure is stolen from some picture that i found online.
Unfortunately can not find the original image any more.
I used stamps to make red roses, and i painted leaves with black acrylic paint. One day i ll definitely make a pedicure with the same design, it will look super cool on the toes.
I apologize for not very nice pictures, and i hope you can still enjoy this manicure. Thanks.
