Nail art is a creative way to decorate nails. This "art form" can be applied to the nails of your hands as well as your toes. Over time, nail-art has become part of the fashion industry, but its historical roots lie with the aristocracy, where nail decorations used to indicate social status.

History of Nail Art
Nail Art in ancient times
Nail decorations first appeared in Babyonia when men blackened their nails with charcoal. This colour was a sign of social status: black a high status and green a low status. In ancient Egypt, women decorated their nails with Henna. Queen Nefertiti used red Henna to decorate her fingernails and toenails. Queen Cleopatra used golden touches on her nails. The ordinary woman was forbidden to use the same nail colours as the Egyptian queens.
Recent history of Nail Art
The famous French manicure started on the Paris Catwalks in 1976 when Jeff Pink, the founder of a cosmetics company, wanted a nail style that was practical but not too conspicuous. The models, on the other hand, applied decorations to stand out from the crowd. The dark gel nails that were a hype in the 90's are attributed to Uma Thurman in the film Pulp Fiction. To stand out, women used glitter on their dark nails. In antiquity, Nail Art was a reflection of social class, while from the 19th century onwards, Nail Art was available to everyone and became part of the fashion lifestyle.
