In spite of the numerous nail art supplies that are readily available in the creation of fabulous looking nails, nail art with nail polish still remains as one of the most favored nail art. Nail polish is a very versatile nail art supply that can help create a multitude of nail art designs. Nail panting has been a part of nail grooming for both men and women as early as 4000 years BC in China where colors have specific meaning and symbol and in Egypt where nail and eye adornment were very popular. Even the Incas were known to decorate their nails with pictures of colorful images such as an eagle. The art of decorating nails progressed through the 17th and 18th century. The introduction of automobile paint in the 1920s also brought about the production of nail paint, the precursor of the nail polish and nail art with nail polish that we’re familiar with in this generation.
