That nails looked beautiful, it is important to learn how to properly care for them. Unfortunately, often the rhythm of a modern woman's life does not allow finding time to visit the salon. In this case, there is only one option – to take care of the pens yourself.
Before dyeing your nails, soften the cuticle in a bath with hot water. Then, with the help of a special stick, push it aside – it should rise slightly above the nail plate. After that, remove the cuticle with a manicure scissors. Such actions should be performed before each procedure of staining the nails, otherwise the varnish will remain on the cuticle, and the nails will look sloppy.
Using the nail file, give the desired shape to the nail. Movements should be from the edges to the center, so that the nails subsequently did not separate.
Now the turn of the grinding nail file. It is better if there are several, with varying degrees of granularity. Start grinding the surface of the nails first with the coarsest, then with a medium-grain nail file, and finish this step with a nail file that gives a shine. Do not overdo it so as not to damage the nail plate.
To gently paint your nails, choose the right brush for varnish. Give preference to the products of popular brands that are responsible for the quality of their products. Stock up with a few brushes for different shades. In addition, well-known firms offer products under the size of the nail, which is also very convenient when used. With the help of such a brush you will cover the nail with a neat layer from one stroke – quickly and beautifully.
Degrease your nails and apply the first coat. This should be the basis for varnish. It can be different: reinforcing, against stratification, for weakened nails, clarifying, etc. Choose the one that suits you. Most often it is transparent and in any case even out the surface of the nail and protects from the pigment of the varnish.
After the substrate dries, in the same order, apply the first layer of colored varnish and wait until it dries. Pay attention to the fact that the lacquer lay beautifully, it is necessary to apply it neatly in three strokes. The first smear in the middle, then – on the sides.
The next layer is the fixer. It will lend durability and brilliance to your manicure. Although sometimes you can do without it. Allow the varnish to dry very well. Soak 20-30 minutes, and your manicure will not be spoiled by an accidental touch.
