Whether light cured or polymer cured, fake nails have always attracted a generous amount of attention. Gel as well as acrylic nails are increasing in popularity due to the incredible long lasting effects offered at a relatively affordable price. Having gorgeous nails is a must nowadays and because nail art designs are constantly changing and improving, one must always keep up with what's hot and what's not.

  Acrylic Nail Designs
In 2011 you can say goodbye to simple looking nails and hello to gorgeous, complicated nail art designs which stand out and attract a generous amount of attention. These designs can be created using different nail art products such as acrylic paint, glitter, crushed seashells, rhinestones, lace, stickers, acrylic 3D details, etc. The possibilities are endless when it comes to design and the best thing about acrylics is that they offer long lasting results, a fabulous manicure which will last up to 4 weeks.
Hand painted nail art designs are the latest trend when it comes to nail art and the results are absolutely spectacular (if the nail art design is created by a talented nail art tech). The design can be created on acrylic nails as well as natural nails and coated with gel finish or clear top coat. The design is created using special nail art brushes and acrylic paint. You will be surprised of how sophisticated the designs appear. Russian nail art designs are very heavy when it comes to first impression but they look amazing and add a touch of sophistication to your nails.
Flowers are perfect for the new 2011 season and there are a variety of flower designs you can opt for. Whether painted on, created using dry flowers, stickers or rhinestones, flower nails look adorable and very feminine. Go glam and add a touch of glitter or go simple and add to your French manicure a lovely simple flower, either way your floral manicure will be the center of attention.
This year when it comes to nail polish color anything goes so opt for a darker design if you want the manicure to stand out or opt for a softer nail art design created using soft, pastel colors if you wish your nails to receive a warmer, softer look.
The shape of the nails can also play a very important role when it comes to style and in 2011 stiletto shaped nails are the hot deal. Stiletto nails feature a sharp, pointy style and can vary in length from long to extra long depending on personal preference. These nails are a bit higher maintenance but if you're looking for an edgier style, they are the perfect option.
