Are you looking for the perfect gift for the pre-teen girl or teenager on your holiday shopping list? Most teenage girls love nail art. Not only is nail art a great way to express ones individuality, it is one of the fastest growing sectors of the beauty industry. Klutz Books has a number of nail art kits with crystal-clear instructions, custom tools and materials, that will get girls on their way to creating beautiful nail designs. We own two of the nail art kits and absolutely love them!

Klutz Nail Style Studio

Nail Style Studio Nail Style Studio from Klutz is a step-by-step tool kit that lets tween girls 10 and up create 25 super cute, teen and tween-approved looks including polka-dot chevrons, big-eyed owls, a tropical beach, delectable cupcakes, a city skyline and more.

The set includes: a 60 page idea book, a dotting tool, about 250 pieces of stick-on nail-art stencils, and 6 little bottles of practice polish.

First, the book talks about some nail basics: how to do a simple manicure and then how to paint the nails. It also shows how to use the dotting tool properly and how to utilize the stencils. Really, it’s an excellent book for beginners!

Nail Style Studio nail art kits My daughter is obsessed with nail art and even though she is in her mid 20’s, nail style studio was still the perfect gift for her for so many reasons.

One of the things she loves about the book is that for someone like her who does not go to a Spa on a regular basics, she would not know the basics on how to do a Manicure properly or self care (nails.) The pages in the book walk her through the basics.The book instructs you on how to clean, trim, file and buff your nails. It also instructs you through the prep for the design and how to paint your nails and follow the basic instructions.

A list of what you will need:

  • Nail file, Nail Buffer and Nail polish remover
  • Cotton Balls
  • a bowl of warm water
  • Lotion
  • Olive Oil

 

Nail artMy daughter painted all her nails, one color using a design in the book called fancy florets. On her accent nail, know as your ring finger or index finger, she decided to do cute confetti.

All that you need is a solid coat, three colours or more for dots, and the dotter. The dotting tool has two ends: a blunt point and a tiny dotting tool.

The blunt point is perfect for cleaning up around the nails and cuticles. It is also for making really small dots or lines. To clean the dotter device, use warm water on a cotton ball before switching to another color.

The book comes with practice nail polish. It’s washable, you can wipe it off with a moisten wipe or you can peel it off your nails. My daughter has now created many styles using regular nail polish and has even did some of her friends nails. Overall, she loves the Nail Style Studio kit.

Klutz Nail Charms

Give her that nail makeover she has been bugging you for with Klutz Nail Charms. Like the Nail Style Studio from Klutz the Nail Charms kit comes with a beautifully illustrated book, complete with instructions which are simple to follow with step-by-step pictures and helpful tips along the way.  The Nail Charms book includes more than 30 designs to create beautiful nail art. The nail charms kit also includes a tray of 400 plus nail charms, gold glitter, nail striping tape and charm glaze, as well as tools for helping to apply the polish and the gems.

Like the Nail Style Studio kit , nail charms is a great DIY nail kit  from the Klutz nail art kits line that teaches nail trend techniques, such as how to give yourself a basic manicure, how to use nail tape and glitter correctly, and also step-by–step directions to paint all sorts of fun designs on your nails.

To add charms, place the charms you want on your nails and press lightly so they stick. let dry for 2 mins, so that they set. Paint over the top of the gems with a thin coat of glaze. Now let the nails dry. To make designs last longer, it is recommended that you use clear nail polish instead of glaze.

It should be noted that the Nail Charms kit doesn’t include any nail polish. However, the nail charms kit can be combined with other Klutz nail art kits, which are sold separately.
