Your nails have been cleaned and manicured and now you will want to consider which nail designs might be right for you. Fortunately, you do not need a professional to achieve an appealing design, and you can save a few dollars as it is easy to do on your own. There are numerous designs you can find on the internet and nail salons and you can implement these simple but awesome ideas for your nails. Here are some of the tools you will need to do your own nails:
A Gel Pen
Chances are you already own one. This is a handy design tool that can help you to create intricate designs. If you are looking for precision, look for a black gel pen that really works. However, this may take some time to dry so you will have to wait for about half an hour before applying the top coat.
A Bobby Pin
Everyone knows that bobby pins are a must when it comes to nail beauty. To make them even more useful, you can use them for your designs, particularly if you want a polka dot look.
Are you looking to achieve a matte finish but do not have a matte nail polish? Well, just apply corn starch to clear nail polish and you’ll have a DIY matte topcoat. This is a cheap way to get a beautiful look and you can have it in various colors as well.
A Toothpick and Cotton
This might baffle you, but this combination creates a very precise tool for cleaning off the smudges from nail polish. It is actually better than a brush.
Extremely Thin Nail Tape
If you wish to have appealing stripes on the nails, buy some nail tapes at your local nail salon or beauty store. They are relatively cheap, come in various forms and colors and can help you achieve a unique nail design.
Doing your own nail designs does not require you to be an expert in the art. You just need to get the right tools and with some practice, you can achieve the best look. With these tips in mind, you no longer have to visit your local nail salon to have your nails done. You can do it from the comfort of your home and save a few dollars as well. Not only that, you can change it at your own convenience and can make it a stress-relieving hobby.
Do not forget to consider some things like your occupation. Some jobs will not give you the freedom to toy around with some designs. Most just allow French tips and don’t accept edgy designs. If you work in an office, it might be a good idea to tone it down and go for neutral colors. The same applies when you are going to an interview. Colors that steal the show are considered unprofessional.
