Editorial Reviews

The book starts with a section explaining what tools are necessary forthe nail art projects in this book. It then goes into basic instructions of the techniques used in this book and good practices of painting nails in general. The explanations are simple and easy to understand. These tips and instructions would be useful for anyone, more so for the novice painter but useful for the more experienced too. After the basics the book jumps right into each nail design, there are instructions for 35 different nail designs. Some of them would be more of a challenge than others but with enough practice most people would be to paint the designs. Each design comes with its own step-by-step instructions and detail pictures for each step.This would be a good book for the teenager or younger woman wo enjoys painting their own nails and wants some fun designs too. Though I feel that some of the designs would be time consuming. While others could be done fairly quickly, like the American flag nails.—Deals and Reviews blog
