Creating decorative designs on nails is not always easy and requires a lot of professionalism and creativity especially if you are planning on some intricate designs. A well done art can brighten up your overall appearance and complement your outfit to a great extent. Nail arts designing can vary from subtle and delicate designs to bold and funky designs.

Nails art requires certain basic steps to be followed to get the application perfectly. Before you start with nail designing, make sure you clean and shape up your nails properly. Trimming your nails and filing them is necessary to get the best result. Even the best of the artists cannot create beautiful designs on your nails if they are in a bad shape and not well kept. You can also consider using acrylic nails if your nails are in a real bad shape and beyond repair. The nail art design can then be painted over these artificial acrylics.

Once your nails are painted with a base coat, you can create your designs using the nail arts brushes that are available in different sizes based on the design you want to draw. Intricate designs will require more thin tipped and finer nail brushes to get the design right and visible. The use of toothpicks is also not uncommon especially if you are a beginner and want to improve your designs. For any nail polish application mistakes, you can use cotton swabs to remove the excess color. Make sure you do it quick as nail polish dries very fast. It is also good to use a different brush for each nail polish color so that you can save time.

Nails art designs can be created using different methods. Novices mostly prefer to create their designs by copying them from nail art books or seeing them on the Internet. One can also learn nail arts through courses offered by some professional nail salons. However, even if you possess minimal artistic capability, you can create simple easy floral designs or geometric shapes which do not require high end training.

While much of the nail art designs use a combination of nail polish colors, one can also add some glitter into the nail polish before painting to jazz up your nails. The use of other nails art accessories like rhinestones, acrylic stones, 3D nail stickers, ceramic flowers, fimo art pieces, crushed shells, etc to name a few are also being widely used to highlight the nails and give them a more sophisticated look.

Once you have completed your nail designing, it is important to maintain your nails properly to prevent your nail arts from chipping and to last long.

What is the best way to remove glitter nail polish?

Regular nail polish come off easy with cotten ball and remover but the glitter is a lot harder to get off. Is there any easier way?

I would use pure acetone and a large cotton ball. Soak the cotton and press on nail and do as usual. It works for me.

Emerald, ruby, sapphire, amethyst, opal, topaz, aquamarine, tanzanite, citrine, garnet, tourmaline, lapis lazuli, jade, zircon, iolite, moonstone, amber, turquoise, coral, agate, onyx, bloodstone, jasper, pearl and diamond are beautiful secrets embedded in the earth belly. Some of them are minerals, some are rocks, some are glass stones and the others are synthetic stones.

They are not just exquisite but also hold some astrological value. There are many stones that have great healing powers. Therefore, these precious gemstones are used both in jewelry and also worn to draw positive energies from their respective ruling planets.

There is a wide range of amazing texture and colors to choose from, and the study of gemstones is very interesting. While many indulge in the study of their astrological energies, there are many who study the stones to create jewelry. There are many precious gemstones but the value of these stones is determined by the density, clarity, cut, rarity, polish, and most importantly the aesthetic value. However, in their raw form the gemstones are not very attractive. When chiseled, carved, cut and polished in the hands of a master it acquires the eye catching quality.

Many buy loose gemstone, unpolished or raw for investment purposes and since the value does not fluctuate drastically in the short run, like in stock market, they are a safe investment. A businessman buys gemstones for investment, a designer buys it to create jewelry but a woman will buy the precious gemstones for a thousand reasons.

The value of Diamond and Emerald are established by the 4 Cs – cut, clarity, carat and color. While the colorless diamond fetches the maximum price, the value of an emerald is higher if it is dark. The Sapphire which is a blue stone is valued by the size, color and transparency. After diamonds the Sapphires are used popularly in the engagement rings. Ruby is the birthstone of the Cancerian zodiac sign. It is nearly as hard as diamond and therefore, easier to maintain. They range from pink to bright red and the most valuable are the Pigeon Blood Red rubies. The value of some stone is decided by the impact they have on the stars. Interestingly some loose gemstones have a positive impact on an individual and a totally negative on the other. Many astrologers value the stones based on, its influence on people.

One must have a good idea of the gemstone before purchase. Now-a-days a wide variety of semiprecious stones are also available. These are stones created in the lab by mixing different minerals and cooled at a particular temperature. If the pattern is swirly and there are bubbles, then the stone is definitely not real.

These stones are widely used in jewelry and decoration pieces and over centuries have continued to impress mankind. Whatever the astrological powers, healing quality or market value of the precious gemstone, it is what meaning they hold in your eyes that is the most important. Like they say beauty is in the very gaze of the beholder.

GemAndGemstone.com offers loose natural gemstones, loose gemstones and semi precious gemstones etc.

Does putting clear nail polish on rhinestones take out the shine?

I recently bought a Chanel bangle that has the two C’s in rhinestones. I was afraid of them falling out so I put nail polish over them (as i heard this prevents it) but now the stones seem dull. Did the clear nail polish take away the shine of the rhinestones, blocking the reflection of the light in the stones? :( Im afraid to take it off now with nail polish remover as it might loosen the stones!

I always put rhinestones on my nails and then put clear nail polish on top of it, just to make sure it stays and i’ve never had a problem with the shine. of course, it depends on the rhinestone, nailpolish, etc.

Hmmm, but i wouldn’t reccommend using nail polish remover on it because, you’re right, it might loosen it! :S

I think you should leave it as it is!! maybe it was the right choice, anyways – it COULD have gotten chipped / fallen out without the nail polish! :) look on the bright side!

ps i am totally jealous of your chanel bangle! :O
