Clean your nails.
Before you start painting, make sure your nails are clean. This can mean using a nail brush to clean under the nail and around the cuticle or using cotton balls to clean those areas gently. Use a nail file to smooth out any rough edges from previous polishes or breaks in the surface of your nails.
Remove any dirt.
Now that your nails are clean remove any dirt or dust under your nails. Use a nail brush or toothbrush to gently scrub out any dust or dirt from under the surface of your nail plate. If there are visible particles in this area, they could cause chipping or damage when painting over them with polish or soaking off gel products.
Apply cuticle oil.
Cuticle oil is a must for the perfect nails. Apply it to your entire nail and the skin around it. If you have a nail brush, apply cuticle oil all over your fingers and toes. If not, you can always dip a cotton swab into the oil bottle and use it as needed.
A base coat.
Base coats help protect the nail from staining and keep polish from chipping. They can also be used as a nail art primer, so applying this step is essential before any other colour is added.
Base coats come in many forms: creams, liquids, and gels like acrylics or fibreglass resin. For the basic beginner’s manicure, you only need an inexpensive gel-like substance.
Apply nail polish.
Nail polish is the base of your design and should be applied evenly with a brush or sponge. Avoid using too much at once, as it will be difficult to spread evenly, and you may end up with streaks in your design.
To get the perfect coat, apply one thin layer of colour, then let it dry before applying another coat. You can speed up the drying process using a hair dryer on low heat for about 15 seconds. Don’t apply too much polish at once, or it will take longer to dry.
Reapply a topcoat.
Applying a thin layer of topcoat every other day or so will keep your manicure looking shiny and new for longer. It also helps prevent the polish from chipping, which can cause it to stain your natural nails. If you don’t want to wait an entire day between coats or are busy, apply the topcoat in two thin layers instead of one thick one.
It can be done at home.
You can master nail art at home with practice, patience, and creativity. Start with small projects like adding dots or stripes to your nails before moving on to more complicated designs. If you make a mistake, don’t stress out! Just try again and learn from your mistakes as you go along.
