So, while I was taking about Rockstar nails with one client this afternoon, I came up with a pretty good analogy to help with at least one of the misunderstandings.
|Acrylic Rockstar nails with one glitter color.|
The subject of "Rockstar nails" came up and she said that several of the girls in her office wear "rockstar" but she doesn't really care for them herself.
I thought that sounded a little odd, seeing as how it's not uncommon for us to add a touch of glitter to her tips, so I just had to inquire...
And sure enough, as I'd suspected, her concept of "Rockstar nails" wasn't exactly accurate, which isn't too uncommon in these parts.

and impressions filled with colored acrylic.
I suppose it's no wonder that the more conservative ladies

faded together, confetti and mylar, and star impressions in white.
They can be French style-- with the bling only at the tips-- this is popular with acrylic because its easier to change out the colors and designs in a simple backfill service without having to completely remove the nails and start over.
Or they can embed the bling in the entire nail--more common with gels because gels are easier to file, so changing out colors goes much faster... this is also the most popular method for doing "rockstar toes" but you can totally do it on fingernails too!
Rockstar can be just one glitter color, or it can be several. It can be custom blended, it can be faded, or sculpted in designs.

Nail art can be hand painted, airbrushed, or stamped. It can be painted with acrylic paint, nail polish, drawn on with Sharpie markers.
Heck, Rockstar is just another style of nail art!
But, ultimately, my point was to clarify that Rockstar nails are just like nail art: they offer a wide variety of options to suit your personal tastes.
