Nail art pens let you express yourself by easily allowing you to effortlessly draw designs and shapes on your nails. For a fraction of the cost of a professional manicure, nail art pens are also great for French manicures, and mistakes can be easily corrected with a moistened swab without damaging the dry nail polish that is already on your nails. Your friends will marvel at your airbrushed look, especially when you reveal that you created it all by yourself!
Use Multiple Pens
The beauty of nail art pens is that you can be as creative as you want to be. Don’t stifle your artistic ability by using only a single color. Multiple pens allow you to add depth and dimension to your images, and can enhance the beauty of flowers by using one color for the petals, another for the center, and still another for the stems of leaves. The sky is the limit with nail art pens, because if you don’t like your original artwork, you can simply erase it and start over.
Choose Your Background Colors Wisely
While you can choose any shade of nail polish for your background, using dark colors such as navy blue, black, purple or red work well with a white nail art pen. If, however, you really want you artwork to be your focal point without any distractions from background colors, simply use a clear base coat. Regardless of which color you choose for your background, make sure that you let coat dry thoroughly before using your nail pen. This is very important, because if you do not do this, the pen may smudge, or even make dents or holes in the colored background layer, causing you to repaint the nail.
Avoid Uneven Surfaces
When you create designs over your background base, the surface of your nails will end up uneven. To smooth them out, apply a clear top coat, but make sure that your artwork has completely dried to avoid smudges. If you don’t apply a topcoat, your nails may look dull and unfinished, and your handiwork won’t last as long either. The glossy topcoat protects your creations from fading, chipping, and cracking.
Nail art pens are very cost effective and simple to use. The end result will look like you’ve spent a fortune on your manicure!
