Purple nail art is one of my favorite nail design color options. Purple nails are simply charming, elegant and absolutely stylish. It looks fantastic on both formal and casual events. Whatever your preferred nail style, purple nails are always fully usable on them.
Paint is used for many types of nail art. Some people just paint on their own purple nail designs while others will hire a professional to do it. I have never personally hired someone to do it but I know a number of women who have. If you are not going to do it yourself, I would suggest getting a little paint because this color has some strong fumes that are common when getting it painted on.
For purple nail designs, there are several tools you will need. I prefer using a set of cuticle pushers because it makes cutting off the tip easier. You also want an artist needle, especially if you’re going to be doing whole pieces. It’s much easier to paint perfect purples that have been cut off than trying to do so from the center. I prefer acrylics over oil paints because they dry slower and look more natural. You may want to try water-based ones as well.
For your purple nail designs, you will want to start with an artificial nail base. There are several different types to choose from. Buy the thickest one that matches your hand size and skin tone as closely as possible. One concern about artificial nails is that sometimes the glue used to stick the base can come off. Make sure the base is completely covered with glue before painting.
To make your nails look polished and ready for purple nail art, you will want to add some sort of a matte finish. I recommend using either gel or liquid latex. It doesn’t matter which one you choose, just make sure you use it. Glue sticks are messy and can cause trouble during your manicure, particularly with a thick coat. A liquid latex will be easy to apply and clean up afterward.
Purple fingernails can be a beautiful statement depending on how you wear them. For a more subtle look, I recommend wearing dark purples on white or cream bases. They contrast quite well and can be worn with almost any color of clothes.
For a striking and unusual look, wear your darker shade of purple on top of a lighter shade. Pink polka dots are great for this particular look. Combine them with black nail art for a rock star chic look. For a monochromatic look, use various polka dots in varying shades. Varying the shade makes a dramatic difference.
If you don’t wear your polish often, you can still have lovely, sparkly nails by painting your nails with nail varnish. There are many different brands of this type of product out there and it is fun to try new ones. You can always buy a kit that includes a few coats of paint and a brush. The only thing to keep in mind when painting your nails is to make sure you get the right shade of paint for your natural skin tone. Many people even paint their own fingernails if they don’t like the natural polish colors.
If you would like something with a little more detail than a standard coat of paint, you can purchase stencils that you can apply to your nails. These are inexpensive and available at most craft stores or even online. They allow you to have artistic freedom when it comes to decorating your nails. Some of these designs require you to use dark colors on the base of the stencil and light colors for the accents.
Purple nail art is not just for beginners. Even the most skilled hobbyist can create beautiful designs when they learn how to use the right tools and colors. Even professional nail artists use nail art because it adds a great deal to their appearance. For instance, if you were going to the office in a purple outfit, your coworkers and bosses would be awestruck. If you are working in an environment where purple is not considered acceptable, you can still look fabulous by adding some nail art to your hands.
There are numerous places where you can purchase these beautiful designs from. You can find them in specialty stores or you can purchase them online. If you decide to purchase online, you will certainly be able to find a larger selection at much better prices than if you choose to shop at a local retailer. Whatever you choose, you will surely be happy with your choice of using nail paint or having your nails done in various creative designs.
