Every kind of art has its day in the sun. From Andy Warhol’s pop art phenomenon to tattoos and body art, there always seems to be a new art form emergent that allows people to express their individuality and creativity.
Tattoos are still a very popular art form, yet a new kind of body art, often referred to as manicure nail art, has taken the stage. Manicurists who execute nail art on their clients must rely on their esthetic skills, combining together creativity, precision, and an eye for detail. Nail decorations can be applied to natural nails, as well as on gel and acrylic nails.
History of Nail Art
The practice of nail decoration has existed for the last 5000 years and can be traced to the people of India who embellished their nails with henna. Now fast forward to 1932, when the French company Revlon released its first nail polish. It was available in a wide variety of shades and used pigments instead of dyes.
Since the 1930s, nail art as come a long way. The technique of airbrushing nails is still comparatively new. It includes an airbrushing machine intentional to perform manicure nail art, which works with a compressor to create innovative and refined patterns and designs on the nails.
