Chapter I. The history of nail-arts (the design of fingernails)
Beautiful hands should have not only the glabrous and tender skin, but also tidy and fine fingernails. The most beautiful hand will be disgustingly looked with sick, untended and grubby fingernails. Conceptually, you can bring your nails to perfection by the manicure. But you should take into account that there is no point to fall in all style ideas. Fashion is inconstantly – most recently all designers harped us that acme of perfection is tone of nail polish matching the colour of lipstick. Why, the elegance woman is unable to make up the eyelids with spring sky colour, the lips with blood-red lipstick and the nails- with favorite green nail polish. Women have to submit to caprice vogue. But- a few years later - designers are changing hearts. Henceforward the combination of blue, red and green is the pink of fashion. Substandard fingernails full of brightness, with spangles and special pictures for polish is what about the most brave fashionmongers was unable to dream either. The name of this rave of colours is Nail-Art. Being the fashionable up-to-date event, Nail-art is art of fingernail decorating. It would be a mistake to think that art of nail painting is modern appearance. As a matter of fact, the history of nail-art numbers some centuries. Far back in Indochina European colonizers for the first time saw uncommonly beautiful bird’s plumets glued on fingernails of aboriginal women. Now this kind of decorating uses for holydays and fashion shows in Europe and America. There are professionals now who are capable to make a masterpiece of fingernails, for hours and hours working with these tiny pictures. After such procedure your nails can be quite rival master’s canvas. Likewise any other arts, Neil-art have its own trends. Lately the painting on transparent surface came in fashion. There is no matter, whether you have artificial nails or your own ones. Proficient puts the layer of transparent polish on your fingernails and then paints whatever you want. Extraordinary popular figures are hieroglyphs, exotic flowers, geometrical patterns, oriental patterns. The main is that there should be remained non-painted parts for glass-nail effect. If your relish the exquisite classics, you can make a French-style manicure. Do you know that French manicure does not relate to France as well as French kiss? Actually this kind of manicure suggested by ORLY company in 1976. The ORLY company is situated in California not far from Hollywood. One of that dream studio producers asked Jeff Pink (the founder of ORLY) to help actresses not to apply the new nail polish every time when they change their dresses. And then the new idea arose: to make the fingernail healthy-looked with lively white polish on their prominent end. This style prefers the mild size of nails and natural shape like "spatula" or "smile". French manicure is still popular because it suits to any garb, image, mood, and looks naturally. Hodiernal fashionmongers can change the white nail border to golden or silvery one. It can be done for one of nails in spite of all ten to make the "French-style" much more refined. For example, now art-French-style - combination of red fingernails with blue or green ends - is in fashion. Also blue and white combination is goodlooking. Such playing with colours elates you even in very gray day! After that the enterprising Americans decided to offer a new style for theirs public-spirited countrywomen. For these style maximally natural tones of cover required, without jumps from roots of nails till theirs free ends. And to spite French manicure this kind was named proudly “Beverly Hills”! Later such a new notion as American manicure' appeared, it will suit impudent and independent women. A real American manicure' requires living, bright and even virulent tones of polish on long nails of an oval shape. A new idea of a full lipstick and polish colour match was born on this style. Now stylists and designers trend that a polish should rather match a colour of shadows on eyelids. As new offers of designer houses revive the style of the 70-s, a polish colour for nails is offered as bright, in rose-lilaceous tones. As for Spanish school of manicure it learns to put a layer of milk-white polish on a polish of a bright colour except an ordinary vehicle to get a more living and deep colour. Page # 5

to be a close choosing an instrument – if you decide to remove the cuticle yourself.Cuticle softener Pro forma it is not the instrument because it is whitish jelled liquid in jar looking as polish and containing a brush. we recommend you not to use any mini-scissors “made special for cuticle removing” bought as a part of “super sets”. Also the nippers made from china is not appropriate-the have another shape. In spite of our wide experience we still have not seen good or even normal sets especially for manicure. After applying the cuticle softener or cuticle exfoliator it is necessary to wash the hands with water. Costs $3-7. because if one company produces knifes and wish to enlarge the assortment with nippers for manicure. The problem is that such company produces something not knowing the specifity of it. the same effect gives soapy water. However we decide to place this substance in the “Instruments” section – it prepares the cuticle to the removing and cleaning the nail. Before the replacing or removing cuticle delete with wool remains of cuticle softener – by the way. But instead of cuticle softener in error you can buy a cuticle exfoliator. We try to put your attention on it. such nippers are not appropriate instruments. Once again call you. The latter is another sample but of the same target: it removes the cuticle solving it.

Our “breakdowns” generally construct according the principles of repetition the form of free end or on the contrast to it. Practical course «eight steps toward the perfection» Our second part is purely practical. It is open-ended variant. except the cases when background is not divided by coloured scope. axes are formed by scopes of colours. this data can and must be used as a basis for creation of similar compositions. but this table is appropriate as basic variant. For more vivid illustrating we put a table of breakdown of backgrounds matching several shape of nails. When creates an asymmetrical composition you should remember that whatever different two part of composition were. probably. the first and the second parts must balance each other visually. foundation which is used for creation of composition itself. By the way from the beginning you should take into account shape of nail where composition will be made. so you can easily find very distinct information about what is what. In such way basing on position of axes you can create symmetrical or asymmetrical composition. Also it should be taken into consideration that all recommendations and descriptions are applicable to real life. It will be only examples here and we'll see all the process of creation of the manicure and examine complicated way from appearing of idea to its realization. Examples were chosen in such a way as to cover maximal amount of ideas for nail-art. so it is not necessary that master's degree will rise from first to fourth example. in first variant when background is divided on different colours. Page # 26 . and in the second variant axes are drawn by our imagination. So axes appears which are forming backbone. Foundations of composition Composition it is general completeness. If background is not divided to zones by colour then it is divided by the same principle only conditionally. All actions which are copying each other we have collected in similar paragraphs. you’ll find the interesting plans yourself. We have considered why should it be exactly eight steps and not for example five or nine? We have lost a lot of time and thoroughly weighed all necessary operations which are crucial for the creation of good nail-art.Chapter IV. We have checked everything and it is "no mine". symmetry and appropriate arrangement of pictures on yours nails. Look at your hands carefully and you will understand that practically nails are just small pieces of paper for us where we will create. Spacing of background will depend on the shape of the nails. So. And don't be afraid to experiment cause it is impossible for anything bad to happen with you. To our amazement it turned out that there are only eight steps no more no less.

Case №3. For example. Axis is centrally and vertical. Case №2. This variant is more complex. Picture #20 Page # 27 . And horizontal compositions use quite rarely. Axis is centrally and horizontal. This case is appropriate to b and d shapes. with b and d shapes one can make a symmetrical composition. Case №4. it is possible to make a composition equal all along the axis. Axis is vertical on 1/3. if choose an Oval (b) and Square (d) shape.Picture #19 Let’s discuss the concrete disposition of basic axes on the nails: Case №1. Note that with a and c shapes symmetrical composition will be most likely unsuccessful. For example. This case is also appropriate to b and d shapes. than in the nail-bed should be more elements when at the free end. But you should remember about relative vertical axis. Axis is horizontal on 1/3. If creating a composition using the Mucronate (a) or Almond-shaped (c). It is the easiest case – you need to discharge symmetrical/asymmetrical composition and draw it on the nails according the certain shape.

To obtain the perfect composition sometimes it is necessary to add just a little: a point. coloured sand (stalks.You can make some net from the axes. • Pauses has their own visual volume and weight.” Concluding it should be noted that you have a five nails on one hand and five on another one. there are several ways to correct it: discharge the composition.e. as if the patterned textile without beginning and end. and when you bring the hands to each other. symmetrical or asymmetrical. lines are laid) and so on. Do not try to repeat already studied ways – the better is to go on your own road. selected nailart –it is necessary to create the composition from the blank page. But if we tell about exclusive. While compounding the pattern the pauses. petals. Practice is the main thing. Therefore creating the composition you should take into account that image will be multiply 5 times. small. So. for example with plumage or volume nail-art. Or from the drew elements . or pauses as variant. If it seems rather motley for you. Probably there are some not quite clear places in the descriptions now. are also used besides elements listed above. The composition itself is a set of appropriate patterns/elements and pauses. elegant and unique. while others leave without any decoration at all. • Object with dense structure is heavier than object with rarefied one (for example. The whole nail should be filled evenly and balanced with respect to the middle.to 10 times. which are strung harmonically around axes and axial points. To take a ready decision and create upon a pattern is usual way for the beginner master or for situation when it is necessary to make quickly a set of standard decisions. Also you should remember that the nail-bed and the edge of the nail are not equal: the nail-bed is apprehended as beginning. Creating composition you should remember constantly about balance and equilibrium. In the cross-points the dots run could also be centers of composition. Let your style to be an exclusively yours – inimitable. Certainle there are the compositions without such pauses – in that case the picture should be a continuous pattern. empty places. while others decorate with separate elements. leave the composition the same but on one nail only. and the second target is that you should be able to differ a central part and a framing of picture. cut foil (hearts. without central pattern was stretched onto the nails. i. stars). too – for example. Another features are existing: • The big object is heavier visually than small one. bands (stripes). you should be unique as snowflake.e. and not one at all. dense in one corner. too – therefore they should be appropriate size to be of suitable “weight. two horizontal and two vertical. As the matter of fact. you may to start your works! The First Step: Source of Ideas. all the more it is interesting. stripes – you can draw them with water-solved colours yourself. net with small cells looked heavier than one with big cells if both of it are from equal fibers). Page # 28 . and the edge of nail plate – as the end. than the rest of place should be filled with light rarefied elements. with background. simply). It is possible when you work at beauty salon and there is a stream of clients. • The dark object is heavier than light one. The main nails are usually of middle or of fourth fingers. • Bright colour is heavier than dull one (if there is something dark or bright. if composition is rather complex. Pauses are necessary for composition not be overloaded. than such composition should be made on one nail only. airy. but don’t worry abut it – during the work all things will take the proper place. Such elements are stresses (little circles).points. i. a line. commas.

The element you have chosen should be clear. line. Picture #22 Page # 29 . Near that place the art is. the decorating of buildings. dyeing of insects. nature objects. Practicing you will fell almost excitement . Let it be entirely opposite the format of nail-art. The idea appeared when author have been looking on the balls for hand massage.

The Second Step: Arrangement & Composition Before you start working with nails. The main is to catch the idea. in the end. rugged somewhere. but preliminary draft should exist. Sometimes we wish to create something beautiful we almost see in our mind! But – in the very time of working. but in the presence of strong wishes to experiment with foil. Therefore. and hands pull to the polish remover jar. first draw your dream – on a first approximation. without clear view of eventual result. Graphic path of flourish is like a romantic mood from old times. For example net of fibers resembles a net on the wear of princess from fairy-tale. Picture #23 Example 3 «Josephine».

Primarily all seems to be not very beautiful – but process can be automated. Pencil. For the fuller appreciation you can draw the sketch in colors. If you really planned to be concerned with nail-art. or ball-point pen are in accordance with such definition. copy and paste it at the page as much as possible. choose the background and thereupon put the cloudlet in the centre and underline with golden welt along background boundary. The explanation is easy – thickened lines will intermix. The main thing is to reflect your idea and adumbrate what is waiting for your nails. We often to be asked about what sort of colors are the best for painting – pencil. Only you should have a handy steadiness – although it will came in the course of time. or even brushes? The most reasonable advice is the mono-colored and sharp. and it is impossible to distinguish too many small details without magnifier on the small surface. Page # 31 . To make more interesting composition. Picture #25 Picture #26 Example №1 – The element “cloudlet” depicted on the green background only looks not very interesting and gullish. markers. Central asymmetrical composition obtained – it is very stylish. After that. No matter what materials you involve for it. try to depict an ordinary contour of standard nail in graphics editor with 3-4-timed zoom. therefore only middle-sized details are recommended. thin jelled pen. it can be done without special skills. Bingo! – we have enough semis for creative work. This is a sketch.

Lozenge is placed in the middle as the center of composition and the largest element. the lane of sand is laid between the strasses. The border between background zones of different colors also inlaid with sand. We obtain a central symmetrical composition. At the centre we used circlets.Picture #27 Picture #28 Example №2 – Sharp nail was zoned with the background scheme. lozenge (strasses) and lines (inlaid with sand). On the top it is equilibrated with three stresses – more little but taking a larger surface together (the area of the nail is larger at the top of the nail). with more details and more chic. and with one strass at the down (area near the bed of nail is smaller). And to make the composition much more logical. Picture #29 Page # 32 . therefore the feeling of perfection of work is creating.

net mustn’t finish with nothing. Picture #31 Picture #32 Example №4 – Choose a neutral background. At the same time net requires the framework. therefore not to thrash out the composition too long. Remaining place is covered with large and small leafs – it is necessary to create the illusion of negligence. It is reputed to be a “harmonious randomness” .different compounds of flowers and leafs on every nail. The main condition is to place the flowers near the center with separate flower-buds on the edges.Picture #30 Example №3 – Neutral background is visually zoned with silver stripes – one central and two backside. therefore we have bounded our net with silver stripes. for fear of overloading the nail otherwise. Turn your attention to the fact that side zones are covered with net – thus fully completed. Also it is necessary to keep the proportional ratio between flowers and greenery 1:1 by volume though approximately. and colour spots throughout the nail are of about equal tone and colour intensity. Pauses in picture are necessary. The surface itself covered with image evenly. you should remember about it. but all nails are hold in equal style. Inside the middle stripe is simple ornament is not filled it completely.it is charmless. Page # 33 .

its’ features could be used in creating your own style. fine motor skills of hand. For example. You can training on tips (artificial nail) or on the paper. You can training in inlaying the silver fiber in net way. Example №4 – It would be good for you to training in effect of aquarelle creating.
