Pearls are a classic accent for your manicure or pedicure. They also complement an intricate hand-painted design and can be used in place of other gemstones like diamonds and rubies. If you’re looking for an elegant accent for your nails but want to use something other than traditional gems like diamonds or rubies, then pearl nails are a great option! In this post, we’ll go over why pearls make excellent nail art accents – both by hand or with 3D printers – and provide tips on creating them yourself if you love their look but aren’t into traditional jewellery pieces (or want something more unique).
Pearls are a great way to add dimension and shine to your nail art – by hand or with the help of a 3D printer.
You can use them as an accent, or you can use them as the central theme of an entire set. Either way, they’re easy to make your nail art look more polished and professional.
If you want to add pearls by hand, there are several options available:
- Pearls or crystals added directly to the polish before the application will give you a subtle shimmer and some added depth for a subtle effect.
- A dotting tool with clear polish at the base of each pearl will result in a more dramatic shimmer effect (see the above photo).
3D printing is a great way to ensure that you’re getting the proper placement of your pearls – no more glueing them on.
It can be challenging to get the correct placement if you’re using pearls to add some extra detail to your nail art. It’s not a problem when you use 3D printing! With a 3D printer, you can create custom designs for your nails exactly how you want them. Grains of sand and other random things will always stay in style on your pins again with this new method.
If you’re in love with pearls but not the look of traditional gems, you can make your own pearls using gel nail polish or nail stickers.
If you’re a pearl fanatic but aren’t a fan of wearing real-life gems on your nails (or if you’re just looking for a cheaper option), consider making your own faux pearls using gel nail polish or nail stickers.
- Gel nail polish: Apply two coats of clear base coat and one thin coat of white gel polish. Next, pour silver glitter into the bottle’s cap and use an eyedropper to add it to the nail. Finally, shake until all of the glitters is mixed in with no clumps remaining before applying it to your nails by dipping a toothpick into the bottle to pick up some glitter at a time and laying that onto your wet nails where you want it.* Nail stickers: Purchase some pre-cut adhesive nail strips in various sizes at any drugstore and apply them as desired.*
You can use pearl nails as a base for your next manicure or pedicure or create an entire set with them.
If you go all out and fully decorate your nails with pearls, consider 3D printing them into your artwork. This way, you know that the placement of each pearl is accurate and won’t be moving around as much during application. The great thing about 3D printing is that you can get creative with the shape and size of the pearls so that they fit in perfectly with your design!
You can get creative with pearl nails by using them instead of other gemstones like rubies and diamonds.
Pearls are a great way to add dimension and shine to your nail art. They can be used in place of other gemstones like rubies and diamonds or as the main focus of an entire set. When pearls are used as accent pieces, they can be placed by hand on the nail or with the help of a 3D printer.
3D printing allows you optimal control over where you place each pearl, so you can create patterns that would be impossible with traditional nail designs. If you want something unique but don’t have time or talent for intricate designs, consider using pearl powder mixed into acrylic paint instead!
Pearls are a great accessory for your nails; there are many ways to use them as part of your nail art. You can use pearls as accents for your designs or make an entire set with them. In this case, pearls don’t have to be set in the same way as traditional gems – they can be printed onto your nails using gel polish or stickers instead of being glued on individually. If you’re looking for something more creative than traditional nail gems but don’t want to commit too much time or money to making custom designs from scratch then pearls on the nails might just be right up your alley.
