What is Nail Art?

If you are someone who loves getting their nails done at a nail and beauty salon in South Africa, we are pretty sure that by now you have probably heard about nail art and how to incorporate it into your next manicure. Well, for those who are a bit unfamiliar with this concept, nail art is best described as a beautiful way of incorporating unique patterns and designs into your average manicure or pedicure. This is a growing trend that is recognized across the world.

 

When applying nail art to your nails, it is quite common to find that the nail technician will use different tools and techniques to achieve the look that the client wants. There are so many different types of nail art designs and patterns available for the customer to choose from.

What Are the Do’s and Don’ts for Nail Art?

If you are a beginner to the nail art trend, or you simply do not know what you should and shouldn’t do when it comes to nail art, do not fear because we have you covered! Below we discuss some of the biggest do’s and don’ts when it comes to nail art.

 

Our nail art do’s
  1. Get your nail art applied by the professionals

When it comes to the application of nail art, one of the biggest do’s is to get yours applied to your nail by a professional nail technician. Going to a professional will ensure that the nail art you choose is applied correctly. Choosing to do this at home can become quite tricky, especially if you are a beginner. You could spend hours on end trying to apply the nail art to your nails without succeeding. Going to a professional will not only ensure better results, but it will also make you comfortable with the idea to explore and try other nail art techniques that you may not consider when doing it yourself.

 

  1. Do try to combine different types of nail art into your manicure or pedicure treatment

Mixing and matching different nail art designs are a great way to show off your funky personality through your nails. There are so many types of nail art patterns and designs that it could be tricky to choose just one.

 

Nail art don’ts
  1. Do not feel like every nail should look the same

One of the best things about nail art is that it is a way of expressing your creativity through your nails. Using a variety of different colours and designs on each nail will give your nails a visually interesting look.

 

  1. Don’t only limit nail art to your ring finger

The ring finger is commonly known as the accent finger in the beauty and cosmetology industry because women usually wear their wedding ring on that finger and want to get noticed for that. Because of this, most people feel that they need to limit nail art only to their ring finger. This is one of the most common myths found when it comes to nail art. There is nothing wrong with having an accent nail but it is better to try and explore with having nail art on all of your finger or toenails. Speak to your nail technician for a professional’s opinion.
