If you’re a nail artist, you know that creating flawless nail art takes time and skill. That’s why you charge a premium for your services.

However, there are a few common problems that can slow down your work and leave you with botched designs. These expert troubleshooting tips will ensure your clients leave the salon with perfect nails.

Tape Manicure

You can use tape to create pretty much any nail design you want. Whether you’re looking for a simple, straight line, or you want to experiment with stripes and geometric designs, tape can help.

You’ll also find that a lot of people use tape to keep their cuticles clean when painting their nails. This works because it provides a thin layer around the edge of the nail, which keeps the polish from getting on your cuticles and skin.

You can even use tape to make a French manicure, which is a simple way to add a little more color to your nails. Cover the tips of your nails with a piece of tape and paint the exposed part of your nail a light pink or tan color. Then, after the polish dries, paint the tips white.

Ombre Manicure

The ombre nail is one of the most popular styles of manicure. This style is easy to achieve and can be used to create a variety of looks.

This style is ideal for those who want to show off their natural beauty. It is also great for those who are looking for a simple yet sophisticated look that will go with almost any occasion.

A neutral nail color is the perfect choice for this style of manicure because it is easy to mix and match with other colors. It will also make your nails appear symmetrical and elegant.

You can even add a little glitter to the ombre design to make it even more eye-catching. It will also give you a fun finish that will complement any outfit.

Another great way to create a unique ombre manicure is by using a sponge. Lay two different colors on the sponge and press them onto your nails a few times to get a more unique look.

Geometric Manicure

Geometric nail designs are a great way to add some flair and personality to your clients’ nails. With a little practice, you can master this style of nail art. And courses like from Hint Academy usually cover it.

This type of nail design can be used for parties, as a daily manicure and even as an office appropriate look. There are a variety of designs to choose from and you can add anything from glitter to foil and crystals for a unique finish.

To create this type of manicure, you will need self-adhesive tape and one or more nail polishes depending on the design. Once you have painted your nails and let them dry, position the tape and apply your first color of nail polish.

This is a simple and easy mani that you can do at home without visiting a beauty salon. It is an excellent choice for beginners and will look amazing on short or long nails.

Sponge Manicure

Sponge nail art is a fun way to make your manicure look more exciting. It’s also super easy to do and requires no artistic skill.

To get a sponge effect, use any latex free sponge like the ones you use for makeup or your kitchen sponge and apply two/three thin strips of different color nail polish overlapping each other. Opaque polishes work best since you can build up the colors on the sponge and not worry about smudging.

The most fun part of this technique is experimenting with different sponge shapes. Some are flat, some are rounded, and others have a wedge shape that works great for blending in the polish.
