The K-Sa-Ra book is good and gives step by steps to nail art. If you want an Airbrushing one then the one by Elizabeth Anthony is good.

The best place for inspiration is on the net, can you not print them off so you can refer back when you need to

I do a fair bit of nail art and can honestly say that I haven't seen a really good nail art book, and I've looked at quite a few. I didn't like the Ka-Sa-Ra book at all, thought the designs were a bit shoddy. Elizabeth Antony book is ok. What we need is a new one (Melle??) Look at http://www.allthingsnails.co.uk if this site doesn't give you ideas nothing will. There are hundreds of designs on there, mostly airbrushed, but it will be very inspiring I'm sure. But do as Debbie said, try the web, just use "nail art" as your key words.

Jane I am with you on this one Melle is Fab, cant wait to se her stuff in a book.
Anthony should do a book too.
Ka-s-Ra just show you how do technique's but then it's up to you to to do your own thing.

The trade magazine are full of them, so why not have a gander there???
Also here are some links to the online trade magazine, not the full version but hey there is some cool how to nail art on there.
