Have you been thinking of nailing an art work? The easiest thing would be to walk into Simar’z on the ground floor of Select Citywalk Mall,Saket. It offers fun artwork not on paper or canvas,but on the nails of those strolling in. “Nail art is funky. We paint anything a person desires — you can choose from our list of designs or suggest one of your own,” says Simar Sukhija Jain,who opened the nail bar a month ago.

Once you’ve chosen the base colour,there is plenty of scope for creative designs. There are various styles — the brush art,which uses a paintbrush to draw faces or images; the needle art,which has a wooden needle doodling on the nail paint to make designs like flowers,stars and stripes. Blots of various hues are made to create some abstract art as well. Once the paint dries,it is layered with a protective coat to make it last long. “There is no end to crazy designs. I even made skeletons on a woman’s nails,” says Jain,who has been doing nail art for the past seven years at her salon Looks at New Friend’s Colony.

The products come in all brands,including the expensive Sally Hansen,and the colours range from a blinding lemon-yellow and fluorescent orange to earthy shades of ecru. You can even go for

3-D art that uses a combination of acrylic powder and foil. Sprinkle some Swarovski crystals to glam up the look. Nail art can cost you anywhere between Rs 500 and Rs 3,000,but if you want nail extensions,you will have to shell out
