If you are looking for a way to get your nail art business up to the next level without breaking the bank or mastering a complex new nail art technique, buying a few ceramic nail art canes might be just the thing for you! These brightly coloured canes are also often referred to as “Fimo canes” and are a great favourite among nail art clients.

Normally, these handmade ceramic canes have been put through a careful quality control process. To put it simply, we won't let one of these canes get on its way out of our company without first making perfectly sure that it is of only the highest quality. True, you can find cheap nail art canes selling around the internet, but if you've bought these in the past, you know why they don't do as well as the original. What makes “Viva La Nails” different is that we only sell genuine hand crafted ceramic canes.

We are so serious about this claim that if you have any complaints about this product within the first 30 days, we will take it back for a full refund. You won't find that kind of guarantee with cheap generic nail art canes.

Why Choose Canes?

You can also buy sliced cane pieces, but there is a reason why most nail technicians use whole ceramic canes. I know from personal experience that pre-cut canes will only work on some nails as slices are too thick for most occasions. If you want to get best designs every single time, using whole canes is the way to go. With a whole cane, you can cut slices as thinly as you like, making them suitable for application even on natural nails.

The most popular way to use clay nail art canes is to cut them in 0.1 mm – 0.2mm thin pieces and lay between 2 clear gel layers. The root of this technique can be found few years ago when first fimo clay canes, in a form of fruits (raspberries, mango, kiwi etc.) become available to professional technicians. These days, there are hundreds of styles available so you really don't have to stick with that fruit coctail look anymore!

Still, you have to know how to cut canes properly, otherwise you are almost guaranteed to fail! The best way to cut ceramic nail art canes is to use special cutting tool – sharp blade, made for this purpose. Similar tools are used in scrapbooking and between other hobbyists.

You can buy both individual nail art canes as well as cane sets which offer great value and selection of canes! This way, whether you need an entire collection of ceramic nail canes or just need to stock up on one particular style, we've got what you need.

Check out our online shop for the following styles of nail art canes: Butterflies, Smiles, Sweets, Fruits, Flowers and Vegetables. This should be more than enough to keep your clients occupied for some time!

Each cane is about 50mm long with a diameter of 0.5cm. Depending on the thickness of your slices, you should be able to get between 50 – 100 pieces from each cane you cut.

Be sure to come back often because we receive new styles at our website all of the time. This way you can make sure that your clients are always on the cutting edge.

    Besides lupus, what else causes butterfly rash?
    I have the butterfly rash on my face, lesions on my arms, stomach, scalp, and legs. Tested negative for RA, ANA, and normal sed. rate.
    What else could it be???
    I also have muscle aches all over my body, and have trouble sleeping. Can’t get to sleep and then wake up several times during the night due to back and neck pain.

    is this a sign? im 31 and they are checking my
    ANA levels

    thanks

    1. hello

      Personally, my first signs were rashes, fatigue, dizziness. I also have the sister to this disease, Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome. So I have alot of blood, blood vessel and CNS stuff happening. I really hope this isn’t what you have.

      Each person with lupus has slightly different symptoms that can range from mild to severe and may come and go over time. However, some of the most common symptoms of lupus include painful or swollen joints (arthritis), unexplained fever, and extreme fatigue. A characteristic red skin rash-the so-called butterfly or malar rash-may appear across the nose and cheeks. Rashes may also occur on the face and ears, upper arms, shoulders, chest, and hands. Because many people with lupus are sensitive to sunlight (called photosensitivity), skin rashes often first develop or worsen after sun exposure.

      Common Symptoms of Lupus

      -Painful or swollen joints and muscle pain
      -Unexplained fever
      -Red rashes, most commonly on the face
      -Chest pain upon deep breathing
      -Unusual loss of hair
      -Pale or purple fingers or toes from cold or stress (Raynaud’s phenomenon)
      -Sensitivity to the sun
      -Swelling (edema) in legs or around eyes
      -Mouth ulcers
      -Swollen glands
      -Extreme fatigue

      Symptoms can range from mild to severe and may come and go over time.

      Other symptoms of lupus include chest pain, hair loss, anemia (a decrease in red blood cells), mouth ulcers, and pale or purple fingers and toes from cold and stress. Some people also experience headaches, dizziness, depression, confusion, or seizures. New symptoms may continue to appear years after the initial diagnosis, and different symptoms can occur at different times. In some people with lupus, only one system of the body, such as the skin or joints, is affected. Other people experience symptoms in many parts of their body. Just how seriously a body system is affected varies from person to person. The following systems in the body also can be affected by lupus.

      -Kidneys: Inflammation of the kidneys (nephritis) can impair their ability to get rid of waste products and other toxins from the body effectively. There is usually no pain associated with kidney involvement, although some patients may notice swelling in their ankles. Most often, the only indication of kidney disease is an abnormal urine or blood test. Because the kidneys are so important to overall health, lupus affecting the kidneys generally requires intensive drug treatment to prevent permanent damage.
      -Lungs: Some people with lupus develop pleuritis, an inflammation of the lining of the chest cavity that causes chest pain, particularly with breathing. Patients with lupus also may get pneumonia.
      -Central nervous system: In some patients, lupus affects the brain or central nervous system. This can cause headaches, dizziness, memory disturbances, vision problems, seizures, stroke, or changes in behavior.
      -Blood vessels: Blood vessels may become inflamed (vasculitis), affecting the way blood circulates through the body. The inflammation may be mild and may not require treatment or may be severe and require immediate attention.
      -Blood: People with lupus may develop anemia, leukopenia (a decreased number of white blood cells), or thrombocytopenia (a decrease in the number of platelets in the blood, which assist in clotting). Some people with lupus may have an increased risk for blood clots.
      -Heart: In some people with lupus, inflammation can occur in the heart itself (myocarditis and endocarditis) or the membrane that surrounds it (pericarditis), causing chest pains or other symptoms. Lupus can also increase the risk of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries).

    Can someone explain the test for cardiolipin antibodies and what the numbers for IgG and IgM mean?
    Patient has a rosacea-like rash on her face – not butterfly-like rash as seen in lupus — but doctor insisted on testing for lupus. The IgG test came back at 14; everything else was normal, including IgM, ANA screen and Lupus ACL. . Doctor informed patient she should see a rheumatologist because there was a good chance she has a disease that causes miscarriage, deep vein thrombosis and sudden stroke. Patient is age 23 and has no symptoms, is in excellent health.

      So her doc is thinking she may have Antiphospholipid syndrome, right? So this disease is diagnosed by checking for anti-cardiolipin antibodies. Antibodies have 2 main types: IgG and IgM. Since her IgG is increased it may suggest a rheumatic disease, like Anti-phospholipid syndrome, or it could be a ton of other diseases, that’s why she should see a rheumathologist, s/he is more capable of making the diagnosis of a rheumatic or collagen disease. These include: Rheumatic arthitis, Sjorgen’s Syndrome, Lupus (many types, not all of them ANAS +), and so son.

    1. hello

      I have both Lupus and APS. I don’t have all of these symptoms but most of them.

      Eleven criteria have been established for the diagnosis of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus(which also involves internal organs not just the skin):

      * Malar (over the cheeks of the face) “butterfly” rash
      * Discoid skin rash: patchy redness that can cause scarring
      * Photosensitivity: skin rash in reaction to sunlight exposure
      * Mucus membrane ulcers: ulceration of the lining of the mouth, nose or throat
      * Arthritis: 2 or more swollen, tender joints of the extremities
      * Pleuritis/pericarditis: inflammation of the lining tissue around the heart or lungs, usually associated with chest pain with breathing
      * Kidney abnormalities: abnormal amounts of urine protein or cellular elements
      * Brain irritation: manifested by seizures (convulsions) and/or psychosis
      * Blood count abnormalities: low counts of white or red blood cells, or platelets
      * Immunologic disorder: abnormal immune tests include anti-DNA or anti-Sm (Smith) antibodies, falsely positive blood test for syphilis, anticardiolipin antibodies, lupus anticoagulant, or positive LE prep test
      * Antinuclear antibody: positive ANA antibody testing
      The treatment of SLE is directed toward decreasing inflammation and/or the level of autoimmune activity. Persons with SLE can help prevent “flares” of disease by avoiding sun exposure and by not abruptly discontinuing medications.
      SLE is eight times more common in women than men. The causes of SLE are unknown. However, heredity, viruses, ultraviolet light, and drugs may all play a role.
      I hope this helps with trying to detect whether you have it or not. Just remember to stay positive no matter what, your body will respond in a very negative way. You van work through anything, if not for yourself, at least for your son. My boyfriends mother had Lupus and my aunt has it and the worse thing you can do is be miserable, you need to fight any obstacle that you may come across as if it is some mere annoyance in your life’s journey, don’t let it consume you, because it will try to. I wish you the best of luck!

      Roseaca is often times linked to an allergy, especially a food allergy. You can try to do an elimination diet to figure out if there is a food trigger. A common trigger is milk. Also you should stay out of the sun, it can aggravate it. Other triggers include, spicy foods, make-up or skin care items with alcohol as an ingredient and humidity. You should use only mild temp water on your face (not too hot and not too cold) You can try aloe vera to help with the driness and itching (but they may irritate the skin further, so try a little area first and if it causes further irritation, discontinue use). You can also use a natural anti-inflammatory since it is caused by the dialation of the blood vessels under the skin (try tumeric, bromelain, papain). See a dermatologist to be sure it isn’t something more serious. (Lupus can cause a red butterfly rash across the face.)
