If you’re anything like us, you’re probably spending more time at home than ever before. And while you may not be able to go to the salon for a professional manicure right now, that doesn’t mean you can’t have beautiful nails. In fact, painting your own nails can be a fun and relaxing activity, and it’s a great way to show off your personality. Here are a few tips to help you get started.
Before you start painting, you’ll need to gather a few supplies. You’ll need nail polish, of course, as well as a base coat and top coat. You’ll also need a nail file, cuticle pusher, and cotton balls or pads. Once you have everything you need, you can start painting.
Begin by washing your hands and trimming your nails. Then, use the nail file to shape your nails and push back your cuticles. Next, apply a base coat to help your nail polish last longer. Once the base coat is dry, it’s time to start painting.
When painting your nails, start in the middle of the nail and work your way out. Use even strokes and be sure to cap the edges of your nails. Once you’re finished painting, apply a top coat to seal in the color.
And that’s it! Painting your own nails is easy and can be a fun way to express your personality. Just be sure to take your time and be patient, and you’ll be sure to love your results.
