Nails, Nails, Nails

The Nail Industry has grown tremendously over the last ten years. The nail services available in today’s salon are amazing. It is so much more than a manicure and pedicure. Today’s savvy Nail Technicians must keep up with the latest trends.

Take for instance, 3D nail art. The possibilities are endless with this technique. A Nail Technician with creativity can create almost anything you can dream up! It is tiny, tedious, intricate work, but truly amazing. You can have 3D nail art placed on one nail or all ten nails. The work could be as simple as a heart on a nail for Valentine’s Day, or a flower for spring. Some Nail Techs have created entire screens like the last supper on the nails!

A Nail Tech must have thorough knowledge of applying sculptured nails to be able to master 3D nail art. Most 3D art is done by using a sculptured product that cures quickly. A variety of colors are used. Good quality, fine pointed brushes are used to create the shapes. More detail can be completed with acrylic paints applied over the 3D shape. All the work is done free hand. It can be done on natural nails over polish, on tips, on gel polish or over sculptured nails themselves. Truly, a work of art on a small canvas!
