The book begins with an introduction to basic techniques, such as creating a flat base and working with colour and pattern, followed by instructions on achieving more complicated designs using special effects with glitter, jewels and 3D work. Practical advice is also given on how to work with various materials, such as stencils, wraps and stick-ons, and what to include in your own basic nail-art kit. Striking close-up photographs illustrate each of the 100 nail designs, which are divided into themed chapters: Diva; Pop Art; Glitter & Disco; Picture It; Rock Star; Dark Side; and, Haute Coat (inspired by catwalk trends).Über den Autor:
