Sometime in January, a customer of mine showed me a picture of a nail design with a knitted effect – basically cable knit sweater patterns done in an embossed style on the nail so it really pops. She later decided to save it for her next design, so I ended up doing it for her only in February. The result:
At that time, the knitted nail design was starting to grow in popularity, so much so that there were even special classes offered to teach the design in Singapore. However, work is always hectic at The Nail Artelier, so when we don’t have time to attend courses, we do the next best thing – we figure it out on our own. There are often many ways to do something, each via different tools/products, which in turn have their own distinct pros and cons. An analytical approach towards nail art is something that I have to thank my nail school (The Pink Room International Nail Academy) for!
After that, I had more requests for knitted nail art, and I’m loving how this style can be interpreted in various ways to create interesting looks!
Here’s a super sweet paddlepop version!
And I leave you now with these interesting cutout hearts done in knitted style!
