There are a number of different nail art designs, but French nails seem to be one of the most popular ones. For those who don’t spend a lot of time having their nails done, you may still not know exactly what French nails are. After reading through the following, you should understand nail design and French nails a little better.
First of all, nail design has been around for a very long time. In times long ago those women who had theirs adorned with a color of some kind were of higher class, usually royalty. For both ancient Chinese cultures and ancient Egyptian cultures, the color that was worn by royalty on the ends of the fingers was red.
Most peasants were not allowed to wear color on their fingers at all, or if they were it was always something that was very pale so that it did not take attention away from the bright color that was worn by those of higher class.
From the colors that were worn on the ends of the fingers developed, and eventually became the polish or varnish that we know today. French nails do not use polish or varnish to obtain their look.
They are false tips that are applied using an adhesive, and they are designed to look like a natural nail. The tips of these are while the area that is over the finger itself has a pink color to it. As previously mentioned, they were designed to look like the natural nail.
There are a number of other nail designs and art that can be worn as well. There are always airbrush techniques that can apply color to the tips of the fingers. Using the technique of airbrushing allows for a lot more detail to be added to the designs and artwork that you get. This means that you can turn your hands into something that is similar to a walking mural.
There are also pre-fabricated designs that you can get. Just as you can have French nails applied professionally or purchase them from the store and apply them yourself, there are also ones that you can purchase at the store that have designs similar to airbrushed ones that you can purchase and apply yourself. For those who are interested in having the designs on their fingertips, but are lacking the money to do it this is the way to go.
French nails are only one specific design that is available for consumers to decorate their fingertips with. Nail designs and color have been used for a long time to show status within a society, or to show class. That is still true now.
Those who are of a higher class have the ability to go to have a professional decorate more often, and those who have less money have to work harder to get theirs done at all. It seems that this is going to continue to be a way to politely show your income bracket, but not be flaunting it in the faces of those of less fortune.
