Neat and original manicure without any problems!
The simplest pattern on the nails is done with a few varnishes and a regular sewing needle, in which the tip can be slightly blunt to prevent damage to oneself.
The materials that will be involved in creating the background and the patterns themselves, it is better to choose contrasting, so that the pictures do not merge and are clearly distinguishable from a considerable distance.
First, create a second base on the nails, for which the lacquer of a light shade or skin color is used. After it dries, apply a few drops of a contrasting color - for beginners, it is better to use a brush, drawing a line corresponding to the area of the future pattern.
After that, take a needle in your hands and draw simple lines that correspond to your desire - you can draw flowers, natural patterns or geometric patterns. It takes 2-3 minutes to finish the work, until the varnish begins to dry out and becomes too hard to spread on the nails.
If you are doing drawings at home, it is best to use an additional transparent coating that will significantly prolong the durability of the image by eliminating irregularities.
In addition, simple patterns on the nails for beginners can be created with the help of special varnishes, which have the appropriate marking, indicating the possibility of their artistic application.
Their difference lies in the use of a different composition with a lower viscosity, as well as in the presence of special thin brushes, from which individual fibers do not get out.
Simple patterns are formed using a similar technology - transparent protective layers are applied on top and bottom of the varnish. At home, even for beginners, it is quite realistic to create original images similar to those shown in photos and videos.
Drawings, including not very simple ones, can be created with the help of scrap materials, from which special stencils can be cut. As such, fit:
- special films for drawing on nails and stamping;
- Scotch tape is a good alternative material;
- thin plaster;
- any self-adhesive surfaces of small thickness.
Before you engage in manicure at home using this technique, make sure that you have chosen the desired pattern, and it will be well suited to your image. In addition, for beginners it is recommended to practice on simple geometric patterns before starting to create more complex artistic images.
First, create a background with colored lacquer, which should dry well before proceeding with the work - if the base is liquid, then the pictures will turn out to be blurry and have uneven edges. Then on the nails you need to put pre-prepared stencils, cut from scotch tape or other material of your choice.
Press them well and make sure that they do not shrink to prevent the formation of uneven edges of the main lines.
After these simple preparations have been completed, apply a picture, wait for it to dry and remove the stencil. As usual, at home it is better to use a clear varnish to protect this pattern.
Drawings using drops
If you feel the ability to focus on the neat performance of certain work that requires considerable care, you can try to create simple patterns on the nails of the drops. As a working tool, select the following items:
- pencil with a rubber band on the back;
- cotton buds for the ears - if you want to create a blurry edge.
This technique is even suitable for beginners - to make the pictures very beautiful, choose a light base that is close to white or body color. The simple patterns themselves will look best in the most contrasting shades - black, red, bright green, dark blue.
After applying the base, prepare to put the drops on the selected tool. Small drawings are obtained if you use a toothpick, on the tip of which you are typing colored lacquer, but to paint a larger area, use a pencil, in which a rubbing eraser is dipped in the lacquer from the opposite end.
When you finish these simple steps, cover your manicure with an extra layer of clear varnish to provide decent protection.
If the most simple drawings are for you to pass, you can complicate the task and install small drops inside large ones, creating in this way fascinating pictures that draw attention from afar and cause you to look at them for a long time.
At home, you can also use a ballpoint pen, from which a kind of medium-sized “brush” is obtained, allowing you to create three-level compositions.
For beginners it is better to choose not too different shades, so as not to spoil the manicure too much with the unsuccessful application of another drop. But more experienced artists can use contrasting colors with excellent appearance when placed on the nails.
In addition, drawings made with the help of drops can also be supplemented with a variety of decorative items - for example, rhinestones.
