Nail Art

Nail art is an artistic or creative process, which directly requires special care of the nails. The nails of any person can be decorated with designs and colors that ranges from plain prints and glitter to crystal and abstracts. The nail is the canvas on which people can use fragile dried flowers or even smiley stickers or diamantes.
A nail artist uses various techniques in order to attain the expected result. Acrylic nails are stuck on the nails in order to extend them. This works best for people have small nails or chipped nails. The nails can then be polished with any color and smoothened to give it a very natural look.

After the nails are given the basic manicure, which involves cleaning the nail, removing the cuticle and any dead skin around the edge of the nail. The nails can then be given a base coat to enhance a colored design or if the client wishes to have a natural look in the background of the design, then no base coat is required. Then the activation coat is applied, which ensures that the design dries quickly. The client can choose his design either from preset designs or from their own picture - which can be scanned into the computer. After placing the hand into the machine the desired design can then be printed. Generally, the printing itself takes about 10 seconds per nail, and depends on the design - sometimes even quicker. The whole process including nail preparation and drying of coats in between can take approximately 15 minutes. These designs will last as long as a normal nail varnishes treatment. With the application of two thin coats of clear nail varnish - pay special attention to the tips, and then if you are careful with your nails, the designs can last up 2 weeks or longer.

Your hands are kept in a safe zone of the machine i.e., inside a special cradle, which holds the nails at a safe distance from the printer head. The printer sprays the design onto your nails, so you will not get any feel. If by any chance, you happened to move your fingers whilst in the machine, the sensitivity of the safety cut out will stop the printing instantly.
