Do you enjoying giving yourself a manicure at home? Do you like to paint your nails but you’re tired of the same-old style? If so, then you want to pay attention to this article. Giving yourself a manicure at home is not hard. You do not need to a be nail tech. In fact, the only thing you do need is a few supplies, the desire to do it, and a little time. The photograph in this article shows a Christmas manicure, but you can do any design you like.
What you need:
Red nail polish
White nail art pen
Clear coat nail polish
Step 1: Always start a manicure with clean hands and fingernails. Make sure to wash under your fingernails as well. Dirty fingernails are never fun to work with nor do they look groomed.
Step 2: File the tips of your nails using your nail file so all fingernails on both hands are the same length and have the same tip – flat tip or rounded tip.
Step 3: Paint your fingernails with the red nail polish. Start at the base of your fingernail and gently move the fingernail brush to the tip of the nail. Repeat until the entire nail is painted. If you mess up and have bubbles, etc., no need to worry, simply swipe the nailbrush over your fingernail again.
Step 4: Allow your fingernails to dry completely.
Step 5: Add another coat of red fingernail polish to all your nails, and allow it to dry completely before moving onto the next step.
Step 6: Add designs to your fingernails using the white nail art pen. You can either make the same design on all fingernails or make different designs on each fingernail; the choice is yours. Allow the white nail polish to dry.
Step 7: Add another coat of white nail art DIRECTLY over the one you added in the step above. Do not go off your lines or dots, and allow it to dry. Adding another coat of white increases the contrast between the red and white and adds appeal to your manicure.
Step 8: Finish your red and white manicure by applying clear coat nail polish and allow it to dry. For added shine, apply a second coat of the clear coat.
As you can see, giving yourself a red and white manicure at home is not difficult. You longer need to make weekly or monthly appointments with a nail tech to have your nail’s professional done.
