Here are the steps on how to apply nail polish:
- Prepare your nails. File your nails into a smooth shape and buff them lightly. This will help the nail polish to adhere better.
- Apply a base coat. A base coat will help to protect your nails from the colour in the nail polish and make the polish last longer.
- Apply two coats of nail polish. Apply the first coat of nail polish in thin layers, allowing each coat to dry completely before applying the next coat.
- Apply a top coat. A top coat will help to seal in the colour and protect your nails from chipping.
Here are some tips for applying nail polish:
- Start with clean nails. Make sure your nails are free of dirt, oil, and lotion before applying nail polish.
- Apply thin coats. It is better to apply thin coats of nail polish and let them dry completely in between coats than to apply thick coats that may not dry evenly.
- Don't overwork the brush. Once you have the polish on the brush, don't swirl it around on your nails. This can create air bubbles and make the polish look uneven.
- Let it dry completely. Before applying another coat of nail polish or touching your nails, make sure the previous coat is completely dry.
