History of nail art
Nail art in ancient times
Nail Decorations surfaced first in Babylonia; when men decorated their nails with black carbon. This color was a sign of social status: black for a high status and green for a low one. In ancient Egypt, women decorate their nails with henna. Queen Nefertiti used Red Henna to decorate her fingernails and toenails. Queen Cleopatra used gold buttons on her fingernails. The "ordinary" woman was forbidden to use as the same nail colors as the Egyptian queens.
The well-known French manicure began on the Paris Catwalks in 1976 when Jeff Pink, the founder of a cosmetics company, wanted a nail style that was practical but not noticed too much. The models, however, applied decorations to it in order to be noticed above the rest of the models. The dark gel nails that were a hype in the 90s are attributed to Uma Thurman in the film Pulp Fiction. In order to stand out, women then used glitter on their dark nails. In ancient times nailart was therefore a reflection of social class, while from the 19th century nail art was available to everyone and quickly became part of the fashion lifestyle.
