While nail art is on the rage and professionals and bloggers are busy uploading DIYs for us commoners to make our nails look like never before, some of us still do not know how to apply the simple nail polish in order!
You agree with us right?
Let us help you to learn how to dab that nail polish like a professional coupled with a few tips, so that you never complain again while and after painting your nails!
1. To get started.
2. Base coat is important bro.
The base coat of a transparent colored nail polish is a must to make your nail paint last longer and stick better to your nails. Just three swipes of this on each nail would be enough! Apply it lightly (don’t make it thick).
3. Three strokes and that’s it!
Lay your hand firmly against a table or any other hard surface and spread out your fingers. After you have applied the base coat, start by applying the first layer of the nail paint of your choice starting with your index finger.
Start by placing a blob of paint at the bottom of the nail just next to the cuticle and even that out in the whole nail lightly. You can also use the three-stripe rule and apply the nail polish in one nail in just three thin strokes!
4. The final coat!
Please be patient. Let your first layer of nail polish dry completely, before you apply the second coat in the exact manner as the first! Let it dry again. If you are putting a dark color, you can follow up with a third coat, but if it is a light colored nail paint, the second layer can be your final coat.
5. Oh, you cannot miss the top coat.
Remember how you started? That is how you would finish it too. Once your nails are completely dry, take the clear nail polish and apply a top coat on your nails for that extra shine. It provides extra strength (in case you have longer nails) and prevents your nail color from wearing off easily too.
6. Get that perfect finish!
The nail polish application work can get a little messy, and to clean it up, use your cotton ear buds. Simply dab it in some nail polish remover and clean up the extra nail polish that may appear on the skin beside the nails. Make it all appear neat and clean by removing extra using Natural and Plant based nail polish remover.
