Having Fun with Nail Polish

Nail polish is one of those fun things that you can do that doesn’t need to cost a lot of money but looks great. Whether you are painting your own nails, painting a friends nails, or doing manicures and pedicures with your kids, there are many different things you can do with nail polish to create all sorts of unique nail designs.

Simple Nail Polish

The first thing you can do with your nail polish is to paint your nails with one colour. You just need a base coat, whatever colour you want to use, and a top coat. This is simple but tends to look wonderful. That said,many people prefer to do their nails in fancy designs using a variety of colours and effects.

Nail Care
Before you get started, you want to make sure you take care of your hands and prepare the nails. If you have nasty looking hands, then no amount of pretty polish is going to make your hands look good.

To keep your hands looking their best:

  • Moisturize! Use your favorite lotion on a regular basis, especially if you live somewhere that is very drying or gets cold. Both of these factors are tough on your hands as they strip moisture from your skin.
  • Eat properly. If you have a diet that is rich in Vitamin B, potassium, calcium and iron, your nails should be in good shape.
  • Go naked! No, not your body, but your nails. Give them a day off from polish to allow them to breath.

Nail Art

Next, comes all the nail art items. Glitter, beads and all sorts of other fun stuff! Be aware that if you like to do your nails every few days, some of these elements can be difficult to get off with nail polish remover.

Finishing

Once you have your nails looking how you want them, you want to make sure you seal them with a top coat. There are many good clear top coats out there but they have started to make top coats with glitter and other elements in them. While they can look nice, if the elements have any size to them, such as decals, they can fall off and ruin the look you are going for. But, a nice small sparkle can make any polish look elegant.

Nail Art Stickers

If you do not have the desire to do the work yourself or if you feel that you would be better off to leave it to others, you can purchase nail stickers instead. Buy the ones that appeal to you, follow the instructions, and voila, you have pretty nails! This is a great way to get intricate nail art on your fingers as it can be very difficult to do without the right tools and a steady hand
