Transcript of Nail Art
From the historical perspective, nail art was used in ancient times. It firstly emerged in ancient Babylonia when males colored their nails with kohl. The nail color indicated status where males of higher class wore black while males of lower class wore green. From 5000 B.C. to 3000 B.C., ancient Egyptian women used nail art to indicate social status. They decorated their nails using the juice of henna plant. For example, Queen Nefertiti used red color to decorate their fingernails and toenails. Compared to Nefertiti, Queen Cleopatra used deep rusty shades with an undertone of gold. Ordinary women were not allowed to use the same colors queen.  In ancient China, during Ming Dynasty nail lacquers and varnishes were created from the mixture of beeswax, egg whites, gelatin, vegetable dyes and gum arabic. As in Egypt, color of the nails also represented class. In 600 BC, during the Zhou Dynasty, royalty used gold and silver colors and later they preferred black and red colors lotto indicate their status.
