Impeccable nails are sometimes a distant dream for women. No matter how hard you try and the number of manicures you opt for, it seems impossible to grow them at a uniform length. Endless pursuits spent in trying to maintain their look seem to go in vain. The moment you feel you have reached your goal, you suddenly realize you have bitten a nail due to stress (and you don't even realize when). Well, thankfully, beauty salons have a solution for women who face problems in growing their nails due to nail biting or as they are weak and brittle that break too easily.
Acrylic nails are the perfect solution for women who wish for long nails in a jiffy. With these, you don't have to worry about the numerous attempts to grow them naturally. The beauty lies in their length and the beautiful designs that can be painted on the surface. These nail art designs often range from the basic to the funky and weird.
What Are Acrylic Nails?
These are known to be very durable kinds of artificial nails. They are glued on to one's natural nails. Furthermore, there are certain processes involved in their attachment. This can be done at a beauty salon or even at home. A specifically-made glue is generally used for the process. These can then be further painted in a variety of creative designs. Their removal, however, should be done with care. Moreover, nail care is very important once you decide to opt for these artificial ones.
Some Design Ideas
If you have finally decided to opt for the same to make your hands look even more glamorous, here are some ideas that you can try out:
Paint a bright shade of red and let it dry. Then, at the base of the nail, draw an upside-down shape of a heart with white polish. This will form the shape of the flower head (similar to a pansy). Draw a leaf and stem in green. Let the brush flow naturally. Once it dries, use a line of yellow at the edge of the leaf for the highlight. Add some gold glitter at the side.
For this design, you can use the basics of French manicure. Paint the nail in a pastel shade like pink with a white tip. Once it dries, use silver paint to draw some creative swirling lines on the surface. You can even add tiny dots in between. With the help of a small brush, use blue nail polish to draw tiny stars. If you want a very high contrasting effect, you can even opt for a shade of red and green for a complete festive look.
Use a deep shade of blue for the nails. Once it dries, use a tiny brush to paint a large teardrop on the blue shade. Twist the end of the teardrop shape as this forms the tail of a fish. Use a bright shade of orange for the fish. Once this dries, add a yellow streak inside the orange towards the middle area and bottom. Use your brush to change the effects, as you desire. You can even merge the color towards the outside to form the fins. Draw two thin lines for the whiskers and a dot in a shade of white for the eye. If you wish to make it more creative, you can add some splashes in white on the blue background so that it looks like water. To make the design even more bold, use black nail polish and outline the body and eyes of the fish.
Use a thin coat of white nail polish on the base of the nail. Once it dries, use a light pink color over it. Now, take a darker shade of pink and use it on the top and bottom of the nails. This will create a shaded effect. Now, you have to draw a cupid in red. For this, you can use any cupid clip art available online and trace the shape for the outline. Use an outline for reference and draw the same on the nail. The cupid with the arrow should be angular with space left above, as this is where you will have to draw the heart. Draw a red heart above the cupid's arrow.
You can add glitter, lace, or foils to your nails and even pierce them to make them stand out. Let your creativity run loose and use these ideas to make everybody turn around and look amazed.
