How long does it take to train to do nails?

Nail art has become increasingly popular in recent years, with more and more people seeking new and creative ways to enhance the appearance of their nails. Whether you’re a seasoned nail art pro or just starting out, there are several basic techniques that everyone should know.


Stamping is a simple and easy way to create intricate designs on your nails. The process involves using a special stamping plate and stamping polish to transfer the design from the plate onto the nail. Stamping is a great option for those who want to create complex designs without having to worry about freehand painting. There are a wide variety of stamping plates available, featuring a range of designs from simple patterns to more elaborate designs. An example of a stamping kit is the Konad Stamping Nail Art Set.


Decals are pre-made designs that can be easily applied to the nails. They come in a variety of designs and can be used to create simple or intricate designs. To use decals, simply cut out the desired design, peel it off the backing, and apply it to the nail. Decals are a great option for those who want to create a quick and easy design without having to worry about painting or stamping. An example of a decal set is the Ejiubas Nail Art Stickers.

Simple Freehand Designs

Freehand designs are created by painting directly onto the nails without the use of stamps or decals. This method is perfect for those who want to create a unique, one-of-a-kind design. To create simple freehand designs, all you need is a fine-tipped brush and your favorite color polishes. Simple designs can be created using basic shapes, such as dots, stripes, and lines. As you become more comfortable with freehand designs, you can experiment with more intricate designs.

Whether you’re just starting out or you’re a seasoned nail art pro, there’s a technique that’s perfect for your needs. By mastering these basic techniques, you’ll be able to create unique and beautiful designs that will enhance the appearance of your nails and make you feel confident and stylish.
