I don't want to call it nail art because that sounds so 1988 to me. I picture heart shaped stickers and rhinestones along the free edge. If you are still doing that..rock on but I am looking at it now more like fashion. If you want to" up your game" then listen closely. You need tools. Go to Kami or http://www.nailsuppliesdirect.com/shop/index. You are going to get everything you need to hook your clients up with the latest styles and trends. This entire kit is about $20.
You also need foil. I know you can get this at various places but Dollarnailart.com has the best bargain. You get a ton so it will allow you to "peacock" until your hands fall off.
Now..where to go to get the latest trends..www.cnd.com ~This is our site. Go to spot light videos and watch some of the girls in action. It's a step by step guide. You can also check us out on Youtube. Here are a few other sites I recommend you follow..The Fingernailfixer on Facebook. Holly is one of my fellow comrades and is always keeping peeps up to speed. Sam , total nail geek, at http://kookynails.tripod.com/id36.html
Here is what I am doing for Spring 2012..
- The mood ring with our color and effects. My friend and coworker Candice made this up. You may want to follow her blog as well.Nails And Lipstick
- The mood ring with shellac colors.
- Peacock the nails with foil
- Marbleizing with Shellac
- Glitter, or Rock star , with shellac
p.s. I am not creative. I am not the girl who comes up with new concepts. If you feel your clients are not up for this or you can't do it..think again. I promise..they will love it and you can do it!
