How To Choose Nail Art Designs
by. Dolvin ≈ February 26, 2008
Dolphin Nail ArtNail art and designs are becoming more and more popular, opening a whole spectrum of different options, which range from having nails polished in two colors, to the use of stickers or even jewelry “rhinestones”. Besides, these nail art options can complete an outfit and give a touch of style even to the most conservative women.

One of the most common techniques of nail polish art is based on the usual French manicure, though the different touch consists of replacing the typical white and light pink for the colors every customer chooses. Two different tones of the same color can be combined too. Using stickers, stars, flowers or even jewelry can be applied for giving the nails a perfect touch.

There are many types of nail art to choose from, and depending on how fancy you'd like to get, you can even do a few of them yourself!
  1. Hand-painted designs These are simple designs (usually flowers) created with regular nail polish and usually accented with puffed and/or glitter paint. It's easiest (unless you're ambidextrous) and usually relatively cheap (often $5-10) to have it done in a salon, but it is possible to do it yourself. Simply cut a toothpick in half and dip the newly blunted end into the polish color of your choice. Then make a circle of five tiny dots, forming a flower. Then add a rhinestone or dash of glitter paint for the center, and you've got yourself some snazzy nails!
  2. Texture techniques This is another easy way to jazz up your nails without going to a salon. Texture techniques involve using regular nail polish and simple household objects to create fabulous designs! A good example is polish swirling: To do this, paint on a thick layer of any nail color you'd like (an intense or bright color works best). Then, using a toothpick, dab a few drops of white or cream onto the layer of color (any light color will work well) and swirl the colors together.
  3. Airbrush designs This can be done at home if you purchase a rather expensive machine, or you can have it done at a salon for a relatively low price. Basically, a machine spray paints a design of your choice onto your nails.
  4. Rhinestones These are great as either the centers of flowers, or arranged in a neat row along the edge of your fingernail or toenail.
  5. Decals These are tiny stickers that you place over polished or unpolished nails, and then seal with topcoat.
  6. Piercings Believe it or not, people (presumably those who ran out of body parts to pierce) do pierce their nails. If you're brave, ask your nail technician to pierce one nail on each hand with a small hoop or stud. Just be CAREFUL when you're running your hands through your hair!
So how are you supposed to choose between all those designs, colors, glitters, and jewels? You can base your selection on a number of factors:
  • Season Just as fashion trends change with the seasons, so should your choice of nail art! For spring, think fresh, fun flowers in light colors, such as candy pink. For fall and winter, choose a seasonal airbrush design, like a snowflake!
  • Occasion Nail designs make it fun and easy to stay in tune with the holidays. Try little red hearts for Valentine's Day, or cute little pumpkins for Halloween.
  • Personality Despite all these "rules," don't forget to be yourself and experiment with FUN!
