How to Paint Your Nails Step-by-Step

There are many people who are unsure on how to paint their nails correctly. So in this article, we will go through how to do it in the best way!

Just like with everything else, it is true that practice makes perfect – but there are some things that are good to think about to get the best results

How to paint your nails

1.Base coating

Always start with an undercoat. I know it can feel like an unnecessary step, but it really reduces the risk of your nails becoming discolored and provides a good and smooth foundation to work with. Furthermore, the nail polish sits slightly better with the undercoat.

2. Painting

When it is time for the colored lacquer, pull the paint off the bottleneck from the side of the brush that is opposite to yourself, but leave the side that will be directly against the nail. Then paint by drawing in the middle of the nail, firmly but not so fast. Remember not to go all the way to the cuticle, there should be a small gap between the cuticle and the colored varnish. That way you don’t have to worry about it getting messy, and in addition, it looks a little more “tidy”. Then paint with the brush on one side of the first stretch, but do not let this color go all the way out to the cuticle. If you leave a millimeter to the edge unpainted, the nails will look longer and narrower. Then do the same on the other side of the middle distance. Keep in mind that several thin layers are better than one thick (and in addition, it dries faster!) And most nail polishes require at least two layers to look good. Top with a good top coat.
