Unlike many other cosmetics that have a history of hundreds or even thousands of years, nail polish (or lacquer, or enamel) is almost completely an invention of twentieth century technology. Nail coverings were not unknown in ancient times, the upper classes of ancient Egypt probably used henna to dye both hair and fingernails, but essentially, its composition, manufacture and handling reflect developments in modern chemical technology.
Modern nail polish is sold in liquid form in small bottles and is applied with a tiny brush. Within a few minutes after application, the substance hardens and forms a shiny coating on the fingernail that is both water- and chip-resistant. Generally, a coating of nail polish may last several days before it begins to chip and fall off. Nail polish can also be removed manually by applying nail polish remover, a substance designed to break down and dissolve the polish.
Nail polish started traditionally in clear, red, pink and brown. Since that time, many new colors and techniques have developed resulting in nail polish that is found in any color. Beyond solid colors, nail polish has also developed an array of other designs and colors. Such as nail polish stamps, crackled, magnetic, nail polish strips and stickers. Also fake rhinestones are often applied. Some types of polish are advertised to cause nail growth, make nails stronger, prevent nails from breaking, cracking and splitting, and to stop nail biting. Nail polish may be applied as one of several components in a manicure.
Clear varnish is transparent and glossy layer which can make the nails appear clean and shiny. This type of nail polish can be used over other varnish for gloss or by itself, as can glitter nail polish. Similar to a clear varnish is an acrylic gel polish. This polish is much like the gel products used in nail salons, which is essentially a strong, clear top coat typically applied over a colored polish. The acrylic gel polish is more than just a glossy layer over nails; the polish gives the underlying color polish support and protection from being easily chipped.
French manicures are manicures designed to resemble natural nails, and are characterized by natural pink base nails with white tips, making it one of the first popular and well known color schemes with nail polish. The tips of the nails are painted white while the rest of the nails are polished in a pink or a suitable nude shade. French manicures may have originated in 18th-century Paris and were popular in the 1920s and 1930s.
Black has been a popular color of nail polish with goths, emo and punks of both genders since the 1970s. However, black and dark nail colors were a huge trend as early as the 1930s.
Nail polish stamps and stickers that are most popular are animal prints, animals, and flowers. Despite this, there are arrays of other stickers and stamps that can be found. Fake and real rhinestones are also often applied to nails for additional decoration.
Magnetic nail polish is often used to create patterns on the nails using a magnet. A few patterns that can be created are waves, layered effects, stars, chevrons, curves and many other patterns. This usually comes in a base color and the magnetic part comes in black or gray.
