Bingo, Greece and Nature
Nail art has evolved into more than just a way to cover plain and uninspiring nails, it has become a form of self expression and artistic creativity. So whether you’re the chic girl who prefers designer clothes and the latest nail art from NY Fashion Week or the non-conformist artist who prefers her own designs, your nails definitely reflect your personality. Here are a couple of ideas that you can use as a canvass for your own genius:
Seek inspiration from Period Icons
Nothing defines the 50’s and the 60’s more than bingo. It’s iconic white and red is familiar to all ages. Bingo is making a comeback, thanks to the hipster community and its digital version, online bingo is one of the most profitable games. According to Online Casinos, it estimates to that over 600 million pounds is spent annually by people in the UK alone. By using the bingo markings, you can change the colors or turn it into a checkered design. Simple and yet stunning.
Seek inspiration from Ancient civilizations
Greece has been around for quite some time and nail art was also popular among the influential. The traditional Greek colors, blue and white make a perfect base or background for nail art. You can flourish it with simple designs or take it to the next level by incorporating the symbols of the great Greek gods. Neptune’s trident or more contemporary versions like Zantos’ lightning (powder blue background and a bright yellow lightning) of BingoGodz.
Seek inspiration from Nature
If you prefer gradient designs, nature is the best inspiration as it supplies us with a unique blend of colors and hues that are soothing to the eyes. Sunrise, sunsets and even the tall green grass as it meets the clouds or the blue sky. Autumn leaves that go from orange to brown. Earthy colors are always neutral and goes well with most of the clothes in your closet.
Finally, Dana Oliver from the Huffington Post quoted a nail artist saying, “Nail art is fun and should never be stressful! If I want to do something elaborate on my nails, I’ll make sure I have plenty of time to do it. Rushing and nail art do not mix well.”
