We all enjoy art and admiring a classic, breathtaking painting!
Who said that in order to paint a beautiful picture you need a blank canvas?
Fingernail painting is just as artistic as creating an oil painting, painting with water colors or painting your bedroom walls, and the fabulous shades of fun allows us to adorn our hands in bright, festive, unique designs!
Fingernail painting is a true art!
Whether you wear acrylic nails, press on nails or go au natural with your own fingernails, polishing and designing your nails can turn any pair of hands into sensuous, alluring, delightful eye candy! With so many colors of nail polish to choose from, and so many decorative beads, rhinestones, etc. that can be placed on the nails, everyone can become a pro at changing their standard pale nail into vibrant shades of grandeur!
All with the stroke of a brush!
Glittery nail polish is “in” right now! As you move your hands throughout the day, whether eating, pulling makeup out of your purse, or placing groceries into the cart, your hands will shimmer and shine when dressed in glitter glitz!
Dazzling, dizzying, delight!
Gorgeous glitter glamour!
Taking care of your hands is truly important to good grooming, and easy to do. Do it yourself manicures are quick, inexpensive and the perfect lead in to painting your nails in your most preferred, original way!
At Home Manicure:
- Remove any old or chipping nail polish. For natural nails, use a nonacetone remover.
- File the nails into your desired shape. What looks modern now is a shorter nail with rounded edges. File your nails in one direction.
- Soak your fingers in warm soapy water for a couple of minutes to soften the cuticles.
- Rub cuticle cream into the cuticles of the nails.
- Use a Qtip or nail stick to gently push back the cuticles.
- Wipe the nails with a damp cloth to ensure that you remove any oils or residue from the cuticle cream. Pat dry the nails.
- Apply a clear base coat and let dry.
- Stroke your nails with the fingernail polish color or colors of choice. A good, thick polish should only need one coat. Generally a nail only needs three brushes of polish: a stroke down the center and one stroke on the left and the right of the nail.
- Apply a clear topcoat of polish. This will provide a lustrous shine, as well as help the polish not to chip.
A self-manicure is that easy! Then, if you want to get fancy, you can add nail art and/or various colors of polka dot or striped paint to each nail, making your favorite designs.
Pure art! Pure elegance! Pure fun!
I still think fingernails look beautiful when the nails are neatly trimmed and coated with one solid color. The classic reds and perfect pinks never go out of style and always make your hands appear fashionable and chic!
Who can resist the roaring reds?
Or the pretty in pinks?
For centuries, women, girls and little girls have been painting their fingernails. The beauty practice is enjoyable, fun and alluring. The polish puts pizzazz in any hand, no matter the size and no matter the skin color.
For girls that adore their TV characters, you can Barbie up your nails in princess pinks and purples, or pay tribute to the sea creature Spongebob Squarepants!
The fun is overwhelming and the fabulous fingernail paint picks are endless!
So let your true personality peek out from behind your pampered, painted fingernails!
Nail art is like a fancy present wrapping job! Each colorful, artistic nail is like a bow on the tip of each finger.
So party away to your heart’s desire with the nail polish of your preference!
Tell everyone who you are and talk sassy and smart through your nail art!
Or better yet, change your nail polish often and keep them guessing! Mystery and mystique are interesting, you femme fatale!
Just like you and your knock them out nails!
