Nail Polish

This can be applied both to the fingernails and toenails.  This is a lacquer used not only to decorated the nails but as well to protect the nail plate. Metallic gold and silver are the initial nail colors for the women of the royal family but eventually red and black became their next favorites. For the lower class society, they wear pale or lighter nail colors.



I’m just so delighted by looking at these lovely and attractive nail polish. They are not just appealing to the adults but teens and little girls would love to have these on their nails (for sure!). Nowadays, glow in the dark nail polish are very in demand too.

Nail Stісkеrѕ or Real Nail Stripes

In оrdеr tо uѕe them, уоu јuѕt hаvе tо rеmоvе the ѕtісkеrѕ and then put them securely оn your nаіlѕ. What’s best about this nail art supply is for sure you’d never be that messy compared to using acrylic nail polish. Another thing, the design would be precise as what is shown on the label (design pictures) unlike when using acrylic nail polish where designs will be manually done. Some of these are foil nail stickers and 3D nail stickers.

Nail Tattoo

These are similar to stickers in the sense that precise patterns are already available for use only that the design is usually not of the entire size of the nail plate. The nail tattoos can be stick to the nails without coating or with nail polish coating. Usually it’s black or white then nail tattoos are added for perfection! To use, remove a clear plastic from the tattoo design, place it carefully on the nail plate then dampen with wet cotton and press it on the tattoo then it’s done! Design has been transferred to your lovely nail!

Artificial Nails

For those who wanted it the easiest way, then try the beautiful designs and styles of artificial nails from the market. It usually come in sets of 10 artificial nails with a glue included. These are also know as false nail tips.

Stеnсіl Nail Art Supplies

A stencil is a thin sheet material with designs or patterns. These nail art stencils can actually make the life of a fashionable woman easier. To use it, you just have to label the design on the desired area of your nail and brush it with the nail polish. Hopefully you girls be successful with this method (manually).

Aside from the using the stencils manually, there is also a nail art printing machine or nail stamp tool and it looks like this one.

Nail Swаrоvѕkі, Gems, Crystals and Rhinestones

I’d say among all the nail art supplies, what’s best to make your nail really glamorous and eye catching would be the use of these super pretty tiny elements or jewels of different designs. Having these embellishments would simply bring out the elegance in you.

Some would also use some nice color combination and add on these tiny yet cutie stones.

Here’s a Youtube tutorial of How to Apply Swarovski Crystals (using CND Shellac for Toes)

Nail Glitters

It works like a charm. Often used with the nail gems,crystals, Swarovski and tiny stones. Neutral nail polish is used to coat the nail plate. With sunshine or light, your nails will surely catch people’s attention!
