Before looking into the detailed description about the steps involved in nail art, we shall take a look at what is nail art. From the very first sight of the word, we’ll come to a conclusion that it is an art that can be done only by the professionals. But this can also be done by common people by practicing it with some guide or a nail art tutorial. Nail art, as we think is not just decorating the nail but also taking care of or protecting the nail. Nowadays nail art is becoming popular, as it has become one of the ways to show off. The reason might probably be the media, especially the Internet. Now we shall move on to the actual nail art tutorial.
The first step is without saying the clean-off process. Various brushes are available and may be used for this process. Including this step may sound childish for some of them, but this is a very essential thing to be done to the nails. Some nailart tutorial might have also ignored this step. Before proceeding to next step, ensure that your nail is dust free. The next step will be trimming the nail to the desired shape. The nail should be shaped in such a way that it doesn’t get damaged.
The next step is nail designing. The most important among nail designing is air brushing. This involves giving an initial base coat to the nail and then a white coat should be applied uniformly on the nail. The uniformity plays an essential role here. Before doing the nail art, make sure that you use good quality paint. Now paint the nail with required color on desired parts of the nail. Then the mask should be applied on top of the nail to cover the area where we do not want the color to be seen.
After applying the mask, paint the nail. An important thing to be considered is to cover the painted area while spraying another color in the nearby area so as to make sure that the design does not get collapsed. You can also use small balls of various colors on the nail for decorative purpose. But the balls should be used while the coated paint is wet. Finally remove the mask and give a top coat. Now wash the area around the nail with soap and water.
