Word nail art is a great way to jazz up your fingertips with a unique design! It’s not every day that you see words splashed across a person’s nails, and it usually elicits a double take from most people who get a close enough glance. So-called “nerdy” people aren’t the only ones who can appreciate word nail art either. The trick is to choose the right word of words for your nails, whether it’s something meaningful or fun.
Word nails are slightly more difficult to pull off than some other simpler nail art designs. When painting word nail art designs, a steady hand is super important. Without it, your words could end up looking like messy blobs of polish. Some women even prefer to add words to the nails on their non-dominate hand. Others may even opt to use word nail decals instead to ensure a perfect clean design.
