Why nail art is so popular

Its pretty hard to not to notice the current trend at the moment, Nail Art. Its the trend that’s easy to do at home or cheap to get done at a salon.
If you’re having a nail art treatment on your natural nail then that can come in at under £10 for a full set of 10 which will last just under 14 days.
Nail art, unlike a hair cut is much cheaper and you don’t have to keep going back for expensive trims every 6 weeks. Nail Art also isn’t like clothes, you can wear your mini masterpieces all day everyday for a good 14 days if you wanted to, if you wore a new dress everyday then you would get some funny looks to say the least!
There have always been forms of Nail Art in the world and through the ages, with the Chinese a few centuries ago adorning their nails with intricate patterned extensions, now you can have your nails in a long spike fashion with tonnes of rhinestones chucked on top or a demure french manicure with flowers going down the side of the nail.
I haven’t taken a Nail Art course, for me, its just something that came naturally, I probably will take a course one day as they usually only last a few days.
Here is a Tumblr blog that showcases some of the best nail art in the world, take a look at fuckyeahnails for the designs that really make you go ‘wow’!
Don’t worry if you can’t recreate the beautiful looks to begin with, it takes time and (sometimes) patience, search YouTube for inspiration and never give up!
The best thing I can recommend is to start simple, with middle range, non-gloopy polish and always use a base coat.
