What are some of the tools needed to create Korean nail art?

Here are some of the most commonly found Korean nail art tools that you can get at any nail art supplies in Australia like BONIIK.
- Nail Clipper: Nail clippers are among the most commonly used and found beauty tools. They are used for trimming and reshaping your nails to achieve your desired shape and nail polish look. Nail clippers are usually made with stainless steel, for their durability and longer life. The curved blades on your nail clippers make the creation of any nail shape effortless.
- Cuticle Trimmer: cuticle trimmers are used to gently remove any loose, overgrown cuticles from around your nails. Loose cuticle skin, often called hangnails’ are visible usually after exfoliating your hands or when you push back overgrown cuticles just before nail polish application. Before trimming your cuticles, it is important to ensure that you have sterilized your tools and ensure that your nails are properly cleansed.
- Toe Separator: Toe separators, as their name says, is a foam that is used to separate your toes for easier, mess-free nail polish application when doing any nail art Sydney on your toenails. It can often be challenging to create different nail arts on your nails, which is why toe separators come in handy. They also prevent nail polish from rubbing against one another before drying.
- Nail buffer: Nail buffers are used to give you the perfect manicure. This multi-functional tool has a few different surface textures, designed to file, shape, buff, resurface, polish and shine your nails just using 1 tool. When using a nail buffer, it is recommended to file your nails in one direction as doing so in one direction can cause your nails to weaken and split.
How do you apply Korean nail art?
Korean nail art mainly uses a mix of pastel, neutral colours, often in a matte or creamy nail polish finish as this gives the nails the most natural yet cute-looking appearance. Nonetheless, vivid and bolder colours are sometimes used too, as a way to make your nails stand out. For best results, always ensure that any residual nail polish is removed using a nail polish remover before applying a new fresh layer.
In addition to using different nail polish colours, Korean nail art also incorporates the use of nail stickers like jewels, gems or textured nail stickers to give your nails added dimension. These nail stickers go on top of your nail polish colour and are easy to apply just by sticking it using your fingers or using tweezers. Once they have been pasted on your nails, simply add a layer of topcoat to seal the colour and sticker in place.

The use of Korean nail art stickers saves time and hassle as they can simply be pasted over your nail and you will have salon-finish, beautiful looking nails in no time and nobody would guess it was DIY!
