Nail art: Funky and wacky in d most stylish way :)

If you think nail art is just painting your nails in different shades, then its a time to update your knowledge. Today, nail art is an another form of art where one can show his/her creativity. Check these pics……………..

Do nail art at home!

While it's best to let a nail art professional give the finish, you can still do a fairly good job right at your home...
You will need: Nail polish, nail art stickers and a good design to follow.
How to: Start with cleaning your nails and clipping it perfectly. Then apply a base coat. Before you begin your nail art you need to create your canvas. Depending on the look you're going for, you can paint your nails with a neutral colour. Do two coats, as it strengthens the nail and leaves a better finish.
Let it dry thoroughly. Create your nail art on top of the base coat. Roll your brush or other tool in one colour of paint to make sure the paint adequately covers it. Keep your art simple. There's plenty of room for creativity—you can create flowers, smileys, abstract designs, etc. to your heart's content — but don't make your nails look too cluttered or busy.
Care for your art. Re-apply a clear top coat every two or three days to protect your art. Nail art stick-ons tend to lose its adhesive quality when you eat with your hands or clean vegetables etc.

Nail art: Funky and wacky

Getting clad in right attires and teaming up the perfect matching accessory – you might be all set for a rocking time.
But what can add more to our fashion sense and style is experimenting with nail art, which can add that punch in your overall personality. Here's what all you can try with your nails...
Funky is in : A crazy hairdo and wacky attire are striking, but what about your nails? Colour them in funky shades too to make a statement, says British nail technician Jacqui Jefford. Jacqui says this is the right time to wear crazy nails with loads of attitude and confidence.
"I have seen people carrying crazy hair styles and dresses with confidence, but most of them play it safe with nail colours. This is the right time to add funk to your nails and make a statement," said Jacqui. Jacqui, who is also a mentor and consultant to Scratch Nails - a nail salon in the plush South Extension-II shopping centre was in the capital to teach nail professionals about international trends. Jacqui, 50, has been in this business for the past 25 years and believes that people still do not take the business of nail care seriously.
"It is very unfortunate that people ignore the only part of the body that goes into the mouth. We pay attention to our attire, hair and skin but how many of us regularly take care of hands?" Jacqui questioned.
"The first thing we do when meeting people is shake hands, and if our hands are not manicured what kind of impression will we give to the other person? She elaborates: "Most of the time we look at our hands and not face, so it is important to make them look good to feel good."
Jacqui's love for nail art started way back in 1974 when she was just 16. "I still remember how I became beautiful from ugly in just 10 minutes," she explained.
"I used to bite my nails a lot and they were in a pathetic shape. One day my friend got nail extensions and her hands looked pretty. I thought I should go for it too and when I did it cost me 20 pounds! It was way too expensive and then I started reading on the subject and finally I took it as a profession to offer cheap yet quality service to people," she added.
