It’s hard to believe that nail art has been around since before Jesus was born. It had different uses back in the day besides adding some flair and character to your nails.
In ancient Egypt, it was used to promote social status among women.
The nail care industry has been growing like never before, since the invention of modern nail polish.
In 2012, the United States witnessed a surging popularity of nail art. In the same year, a short nail art documentary was released: “NAILgasm”.
The film explored the growing trend of nail art; from women across the world to high fashion runways. In 2014, Nailpolis.com, the online Museum of Nail Art was founded for nail artists and hobbyists to share their designs. It is free to visit this website, however, only members of Nailpolis are allowed to share their art.
Fashionistas commonly use Youtube and Pinterest to learn how to do the newest and most interesting designs at home.
