Make a beautiful manicure can be not only in the cabin, but also at home. The main thing here is the availability of all the necessary tools and materials, as well as the correct application of nail polish.
You will need
- – nail file;
- – means for removing varnish or soap;
- – lacquer base;
- – a varnish-fixer;
- – toothpick;
- – cotton wool.
Perfect manicure begins with the ideal shape of the nail plate, accordingly, first of all you need to saw your nails with a special nail file.
Then treat the surface of the nails (for degreasing) with a nail polish remover or with normal toilet soap. Coverage will lie flat and last as long as possible only if the nail plate is dry, clean and there are no fat deposits on it.
Now you can start applying a special tool on the nails – the base for lacquer or the usual varnish of a transparent shade. Before applying a little, flush the bottle with it in his hands and twist between the palms.
Begin to paint your nails with the little finger, while placing your fingers on the table in such a way that your palm hangs a little. Equally important here is the correct location of light – it should fall on the nails on the left-top.
Lower the brush into the lacquer completely, then touch the edge of the bottle with it so that there is practically no varnish left on the (inner) side of the bottle, but on the other hand, on the contrary, it was enough. It is this (external) side and it is necessary to start painting nails.
During the application of varnish, try not to touch the cuticle. It is better to leave between it and the nail plate approximately 1 mm.
It is also recommended to apply not one layer of the main varnish, but two – this will allow to see the true color of the coating, make it more saturated, and above all, avoid ugly divorces.
Once the application of the substrate is complete, use a special lacquer-fixer. In this case, its name speaks for itself – the manicure will look attractive and does not crack for a long time. In addition, give your nails extra shine.
All layers of varnish must be thoroughly dried, that is, the more they are, the longer the drying process. In order to check whether the layer is dry, tap (lightly) with one finger's finger on the other, or bring it to your lips and lightly touch it.
And in the end, when the nails are completely dry, remove excess lacquer (if it accidentally appeared on the skin during the application) with a toothpick. At the tip of the last, wind the fleece beforehand.
