Even if you can get them off your skin, they're just everywhere. How big is the U. Do that on all 10 nails, then cut the nails to preferred length. NH Neesee Hunter Oct 17, TT Taiyler Thorpe Feb 20,
It's okay if you overlap the paint with the sticker a bit. Remove the sticker while the paint is still wet, so you don't pull of chips of paint with it when you take it off. Allow the design to dry completely and finish it off with clear top coat.
Add a jewel or sticker to your nail. Start with a coat of your favorite nail polish and accent it with a pretty decoration. Apply a base coat color or a clear base coat. Place a dab of nail glue or nail gel on your nail. Put it high on the nail, toward the tip, or in a lower corner. Think about where it will look best. Pick up the jewel or sticker with a pair of tweezers and drop it onto the gel or glue. Use the tweezers to gently press it into place. Allow the glue to dry.
Paint a clear top coat over the nail to keep the sticker or jewel from falling off. Go with a glitter effect. Try one of these techniques: Mix loose glitter with nail gel or clear polish and apply it to your nails.
When the application has dried, add a top coat. Cover one or more of your nails with nail gel or polish. Dust the nails with glitter and allow them to dry before finishing off with a top coat. Choose two colors, a base coat and a dot color. If you'd like, you can use multiple colors for the dots. Apply the basecoat color. Allow it to dry completely. Dip a small brush, toothpick or pin into the polish you chose for the dots and lightly tap the implement on your nail.
Continue doing this until your nail has as many dots as you want. For other effects, you can create dots of varying sizes by using thinner or thicker-tipped implements. To make fading or trailing dots, dip the implement in the paint once and apply several dots without reapplying paint.
You can also use your fine-tipped implement to drag the paint out from the wet dot to create rays, swirls and other designs. When the dots are dry, finish with a clear top coat. Make a floral design. An arrangement of dots can be made to look like a flower. Use a thin-tipped brush or toothpick to place groups of five dots arranged in circles on your nails.
These are the petals. When the petal dots dry, use the same color to paint a simple circle in the center of the petal dots. You can add extra detail by placing a tiny white stripe in the center of the petals, or creating leaves with green nail polish. Take care not to crowd too many flowers on each nail. Make sure the flowers are distinct from one another. When the flower designs are dry, finish with a clear topcoat.
Create a leopard print. For this look choose two colors: Try fuchsia or orange and black. Use the lighter color to make splotches on your nails. The shapes don't have to be uniform, just as leopard's spots aren't uniform.
When the splotches dry, draw "C" or "U" shapes around the outsides of the blobs using the darker color. When the leopard spots are dry, finish with a clear top coat - or, for added flair, paint over the design with a clear glittery nail polish.
You'll need three different colors: Apply the basecoat color and allow it to dry. Apply a clear topcoat to seal in the base coat, and allow it to dry. Apply a dot of the first swirl color using a toothpick. Use a clean toothpick to apply a dot of the second swirl color on top of the first dot while the first dot is still wet. Drag the colors outward together and create swirls using a clean toothpick, a striper brush or other implement. You can also create a marble effect by randomly placing several dots of the first swirl color on the nail, then placing several dots of the second swirl color around and on top of the first set of dots.
Swirl the dots around and together by moving your implement in a criss-cross, S-shaped or figure-8 pattern. Try gradient ombre nails. Ombre looks best with colors in the same color family, like purples and blues. For this look, you'll need three colors: Apply a coat of the darkest color to your nails and allow it to dry.
Dip a makeup sponge into a dark colored polish only a dab of polish is needed on the sponge and apply the medium color to the tips of your nails, starting at the tip and moving down to create a fading effect. With a clean makeup sponge, dab the lightest color onto your nails in the same fashion, starting from the tip and fading downward toward the base of your nails.
The resulting look should be bright-tipped nails that fade downward toward the darkest base coat color. Apply a clear top coat while the polishes are still wet to more completely smear the colors together. Create a watercolor effect. In this case you'll need two or more colors: Apply the white polish as the base coat. Before the base coat dries, use a toothpick or other implement to place dots in another color or two on top of the base coat.
Dip a large brush in acetone and dab it onto the drops of polish. Use the acetone and the brush to thin and smear the dots over the white base coat. If you're successful, you'll have an impressionistic Monet-inspired design. When the watercolor design is dry, apply a clear top coat. To simulate the look of acid-washed jeans, use blue and white polishes. Use the blue color for the base coat. Allow it to dry and apply a clear topcoat. When these coats have dried, paint a single layer of white polish over the basecoat.
A common way of making nails corrosion-resistant is to coat them with zinc. Electrogalvanized nails are plated with zinc, and are not as corrosion-resistant as hot-dipped nails. A third process peens zinc onto the nail. By roughening the nail's surface, all these treatments — but especially hot-dipping — increase the holding power of the nail.
Blued nails have very little resistance to corrosion and are meant to be used indoors. Ring-shank nails are used with softwood, in situations where the nail will be pushed from side to side, which tends to enlarge the hole and free smooth-shank nails. Originally, nails had rectangular rather than circular shanks. The brad head is found on finishing nails and brads. Usually it is cupped; that is, it has a small depression in the middle of the head that serves to steady a nail set.
Duplex heads are used where the nail must later be removed, for example, in constructing movie sets. Most nails have a diamond point, a 4-sided pyramid. Some however, have needle points, and a few types have a chisel point or a duckbill point.
Besides high-carbon and low-carbon steel, nails are available in types and stainless steel. Stainless steel nails are slightly less strong than ordinary steel nails and are about three times as expensive as galvanized nails, but they are much more rust resistant.
Aluminum nails are not strong enough for most structural framing and are primarily used to fasten aluminum siding or screening. Nails for power nailers, the professional's replacement for the hammer, are sold by count, not by weight.
Fungi invade the superficial layers of the nail plate and spread deeper into the nail plate as the infection progresses.
Lesions are often white and are most often caused by T. Nail bed is not involved in the infection; only the interior of the nail plate is infected. Often a sign of end-stage distal or proximal subungual onychomycosis. Nail bed is thickened and raised with copious keratotic debris.
Affects fingernails more commonly than toenails, and is often caused by Candida. May be a sign of underlying immunodeficiency. May present similar to subungual melanoma. Diagnosis of onychomycosis can often be made by visual inspection alone; laboratory tests may not be needed, but include: Potassium hydroxide KOH stain is a commonly-used method because it is inexpensive and easy to perform.
Nail clippings or scrapings are placed in a drop of KOH and examined under a microscope for the presence of fungal elements. Prevalence and epidemiology of onychomycosis in patients visiting physicians' offices: J Am Acad Dermatol.
