The different techniques of Nail Art designs

The incredible palette of colors and textures offered by UV gels and acrylic paint makes it possible to create all kinds of nail decorations. Today, the nail supply expert Maryton will tell you two different techniques of Nail Art designs!


The watercolor Nail Art technique consists of making drawings on the nail with watercolor paint in a tube or bucket. The “watercolor” effect and result is created by the paint, which, when diluted, offers soft colors and typical transparent gradients. The whole technique is based on the amount of water used and how to stretch and dilute the color.


Stamping is a technique that allows you to create a nail decoration on false nails or on natural nails. It consists more precisely of transferring an engraved pattern into a plate using a stamp and a special stamping varnish.

However, not all varnishes work well in stamping. For the transfer to work properly, the varnish must be very pigmented and opaque. In addition, I also advise you to invest in a complete professional manicure set to care for your nails!
