I clean and design my own nails here at home. I am not very artistic that's why I'm practicing. Meanwhile , I use stickers to design my nails. That works well for me too. Besides I don't need it so beautiful as it will worn out easily because of my house chores.
|Stickers to design my nails|
If you wonder when does nail art started, it was 3000 years BC. Chinese people back then use different materials mixed together to produce a solution. It was then applied to their nails and allowed to settle there for hours until their finger nails turned pink.
The Indians also have their own way of decorating their nails. They use extracts of Henna plant to dye their nails. It is the same material they use in henna tattoo. Henna substance change colors as the stain matures. Even Ancient Egyptians had their own story to tell. The color of the nails was used to identify the society in which a lady belongs.
As time goes by, different pigments, dyes and materials were used by different nationalities. It became popular even more in 1917 when the modern nail polish was introduced.
Nowadays, you can find nail salons everywhere. It's even more exciting to know that they can do your nails the way you want it. I am so amazed with all the designs I've seen. I wish I can do that myself.
How about you? Do you go to nail salon to have your nails done or you do it yourself?
