Painting designs on the nails can be a fun thing to do as a hobby and it can have great results. At the same time, it is also nice to go to the salon and be pampered with the manicure and have the polish and the designs done there. For individuals who don’t like to paint their nails and don’t have time to visit the salon but want to add this nail art to their every day décor, there is another option. This option is the artificial nail.
Also known as fake nails, these items have a lot of advantages for the user. For an individual who likes many different designs, they don’t have to work at always cleaning the polish from the nails but can change designs whenever they want to or as recommended on the package.
Using the fake nails saves a lot of time from the maintenance of the nails in terms of the polish. Polish tends to chip after some time and even if it is removed before it chips, it still takes some time to repair or fix the polish. Also for the people who like to have the more intricate designs like flowers or abstract pictures, there is a lot of time saved by having the design on an artificial nail.
Anyone who wants to work but needs to have short nails for their work can still have long nails when they want to when they use these items. They are very convenient in many different ways and for a variety of situations.
Most women greatly enjoy getting professional manicures. Not only do they come out looking flawless, but they can be extremely relaxing. However, one of the biggest downsides to shelling out 15-30 bucks for a manicure is that the color eventually begins to peel and fade. Most of us have experience that horrifying feeling when we scrape our newly manicured nail against a wall, ruining the smooth coating of paint.
There are ways to protect your investment by keeping your nail polish fresh and new looking for a longer period of time. First, nail polish color will become damaged by prolonged exposure to the sun. Therefore, it will be beneficial for your nails (as well as your skin and hair) to avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight.
One way to preserve your personal bottles of nail polish is to make sure the bottles are shut tight. Leaving the bottle open will expose the polish to air, causing it to dry up. This will make the entire bottle essentially unusable, and you will have to throw it away.
Furthermore, there are brands of nail polish that will last longer than others. When purchasing nail polish, it is important to keep in mind that you get what you pay for. In other words, the more expensive the nail polish, the more durable that polish is going to be after being transferred to your fingernails. There are big differences between qualities of nail polish, and it is likely that you will have to experiment before finding the one that is best suited for you.
