How can I make drawings at home?

At first, at least, it's definitely not worth counting on, because you have to start your way in mastering the technique of nail art gradually. That is, your first drawing should be simple and elementary for you. Even if you manage to create quite a good manicure, we recommend that you repeat this drawing two more times. To consolidate knowledge and "fill your hand."
Drawings on nails for beginners should not be cumbersome, believe me, a couple of straight lines or squares can transform a normal manicure, but only if they are drawn exactly. The main thing is not rushing. To tackle a complex design without sufficient experience is not worth it. You can try to draw flowers, paste pastes and add foil to the tip of the nail. But all this you will do without confidence in your hands, and this is fraught with curved lines, glue drips and fragility of your creation, and neatness does not boast such a manicure.
It is especially problematic to draw something on your "working" hand. That is, it is right to draw straight and precise lines on the right hand nails, since the left hand is not used to doing this. And vice versa. Therefore often beginners on one hand get a good design, and the other - he carefully from all hides.
What tools are needed for drawing on the nails at home?

And the fact that without them to draw even the most simple drawing is problematic, we were convinced more than once.
The simplest and most cost-effective tool is a simple toothpick and a needle. With their help you can draw small flowers and patterns. For more complex drawings, they can not be used. In addition, do not forget that these tools can not be strongly pressed on the nail, since you can scratch the nail plate.
