When a nail artist came up with the idea for a book inspired by her nail art work, she knew she had something special.
The concept for “Nail Art Designs”, by the Melbourne nail artist Nelsa Houser, is simple.
It was created by a friend and her mother-in-law who are both nail artists, but she wanted something simple, so she came up the idea of a book.
“I have a friend who’s a nail and she said to me, ‘You know, I think we should do something to teach you how to paint nails,'” Ms Housers said.
“So I came up this idea that we could use nail art and we could start teaching people how to do nails.”
My mum-inlaw was the one who said, ‘Why not give a book a name?’
“Nails and hair nail artThe book is about nail art.
It is called Nails and Hair.
It’s set in a Victorian town, and Ms Houler said the idea is to use the book to teach people how they can learn to paint their nails.
Nails, or hair, is a special colour used for creating the illusion of depth.
Nail art has been around for more than two centuries, but until recently it was mostly seen as an aesthetic rather than an art form.
It has been a way of expressing the natural world, but also to express oneself.”
There’s so much stigma around nail art that it’s almost invisible and not really that interesting,” Ms Hulser said.”[It] is not just about what the artist has done, but what you’ve done, and how you’ve gone about doing it.
“The idea behind “Nails & Hair” is that people can use their own natural talents and experience to make their own nails.
It is a book that teaches the fundamentals of nail art, but Ms Holser says the book is a reflection of the beauty of the natural beauty that she is creating.”
What we’re looking for is something that people will look at and say, ‘that’s really neat’,” Ms Houlser said, “I love this book’.
“We’ve also found that people really enjoy it because it’s fun.”
The book will be available in the autumn, with the first issue being released on September 15.

Nelsa and her friend Nelsanah are selling copies for $5 each at the Melbourne Bookshop and on the bookshop website.
The idea for the book came to Nelsaa after her mum- in-law was talking to a friend about nails and hair.
“She was talking about how she’s got her nails done and she’s thinking that I’ve got my hair done and I’ve never really got to do that,” Nelsah said.
It was an eye-opening moment for Nelsas friend, Ms Hils, who said she knew what she wanted to do with the book.
She said her idea for “nails & hair” came after she had a conversation with Nels, who told her about how her mother in-laws manicurist had taught her to paint.
“Nels was like, ‘That’s cool’,” Ms Dorsch said.’
I think this book could be a great tool’Nelsas mum-ins-law Nelsi Houserman said her mother always taught her how to nail.
She was fascinated by nail art as a child, but it didn’t take her long to learn how to draw.
“As a child I always wanted to be a painter, but when I was really young, I just couldn’t find the right tools,” Ms Dersch said, adding that she started painting when she was 18 years old.
“At the time I had just graduated from university, I had this painting class and I had painted in school.”
The inspiration for the story came from a conversation she had with her mother, who encouraged her to start learning how to craft her own nails, and the book also has a reference to her mother.
“It’s a story of how my mother- in that we love to make nail art,” Ms Rainsch said of her mother’s advice.
“We think that we’re going to be able to help people learn how and why to do nail art.”
Nels a-houser said her book is designed to teach young people the basics of nail arts.
“The first thing I want to do is teach them how to pick out the right colour,” Ms Nelser said of the book, which will include tips on how to apply nail polish, how to sharpen nails and how to get a good shine.
“You can paint with one brush or two,” she said.
Ms HousER said she started the project with the intention of inspiring young people to take up nail art in order to give them an edge.
