Hi everyone

I'd love to give nail art a try, but don't really know where to start.

Do you think i should do a course or just give it a whirl on my own??

I'd ideally like to do freehand at 1st and then maybe progress to airbrushing (though i know i'd have to do a course for this)

Also, can anyone recomend a suppliers that could start me off?

Em.xx

Dear Em

Do you get Scratch?

Would you like a free copy as it has various nail art suppliers inside so you could browse and get a feeling for the suppliers.

Send me your address if you would like to see a copy.

best wishes

Hi Emma
You can buy the acrylic paints for about £1 a bottle in artist shops .... make sure you get acrylic tho, cos other paints won't work!
Get yourself some nail tips, paint your base colour on each one with nail polish.When that's dry, you can paint tiny designs using very fine brushes, or a dotting tool ...... you can paint little flowers using a cocktail stick...just paint 5 or 6 dots in a circle shape, and a yellow dot in the middle. Or you can buy rhinestones or striping tape from suppliers like www.netnails.net or www.allthingsnails.co.uk
Have a look at some of the nail art on the site for ideas, and let your imagination run wild!!
But most of all have fun!!
