  • Directions to perfect

    nails This article will teach you

    how to correctly paint your nails without making a huge mess and keeping your nails as healthy as they can be.

    First, you will start off by removing any polish you may already have on your nails, especially if your previous polish is chipped or very dark. To remove your polish use a cotton ball or cotton swab and put some nail polish remover (the more acetone the remover contains the faster and easier it is to remove the nail polish).

    Once youve taken all your polish off fill a bowl with warm soapy water and soak your finger nails (not your hands, just your nails) in the water for 3 to 5 minutes.

    After your nials have been soaked take them out of the bowl and dry them. Then use a cuticle stick to push back your cuticles, do this gently and make sure not to push them back to far.

  • After you have pushed back your cuticles cute your nails to your desired length then file the edges however you like, straight or rounded.

    Once youve finished that step you can use a 4 way nail buffer to flatten, smooth, buffer, and shine your nails this gives the polish a smooth, clean surface to rest on (this

    step is optional.)

    Once your nails have been prepped find a basecoat (I recommend OPIs basecoat) and apply a thin even coat over each of your nails; this will prevent from future chipping and keep the colored polish from dying your finger

    nails. After the base coat is completely dry then retrieve your bottle of colored nail polish (make sure to roll it in your hands (don't shake it) to blend completely).

  • Then Twist open the cap of the bottle and gently drag the brush against the side of the bottle, getting rid of excess paint. Once you have removed any excess paint Place one side of the brush a little bit away from the cuticle, (if you put it right against the cuticle it will stick to your cuticle and when you go to take it off there will be a thin line of nail polish left.) Then drag the polish toward the free edge of the nail in a thin coat (make sure to do this in a fluid movement to prevent kinks in the polish.)

    Continue until you've covered the entire nail, dipping and wiping the brush as needed. Continue these steps on the rest of your nails, making sure each is completely dry before starting a new coat.

    After youve put the amount of layers to create the shade you wanted find a good top coat (I recommend OPIs Topcoat) and paint it over your completely dry, painted nails (this will help to keep the polish shiny, chip-free and looking fresh.

    Now, youre done! Enjoy your perfectly painted nails.

  • How to give yourself a

    french manicure This article will teach you how

    to give yourself a french manicure

    without making a huge mess and

    keeping your nails as healthy as they

    can be.

    First, you will start off by

    removing any polish you may

    already have on your nails. To remove

    your polish use a cotton ball or

    cotton swab and put some nail polish

    remover (the more acetone the

    remover contains the faster and

    easier it is to remove the nail polish).

    If your nails

    are stained from previous polish use

    whitening toothpaste and lime juice

    and mix them into a paste with an

    old toothbrush. Once you have made

    the paste use the toothbrush or nail

    brush to brush your nails clean then

    rinse with water and dry your nails.

  • Once youve taken all your

    polish off fill a bowl with warm

    soapy water and soak your finger

    nails (not your hands, just your

    nails) in the water for 3 to 5

    minutes.

    After your nails have been

    soaked take them out of the bowl

    and dry them. Then use a cuticle

    stick to push back your cuticles, do

    this gently and make sure not to

    push them back to far.

    After you have pushed back

    your cuticles cute your nails to your

    desired length then file the edges

    however you like, straight or

    rounded.

    Once youve finished that step you

    can use a 4 way nail buffer to

    flatten, smooth, buffer, and shine

    your nails this gives the polish a

    smooth, clean surface to rest on (this

    step is optional.)

  • Once your nails have been

    prepped find a basecoat (I

    recommend OPIs basecoat) and apply

    a thin even coat over each of your

    nails; this will prevent from future

    chipping and keep the colored polish

    from dying your finger nails.

    After the base coat is

    completely dry grad your white nail

    polish and load the brush with

    polish. You can use stickers to guide

    where the polish should go or you can

    do it freehand.

    Use the white of your nails to

    guide where the paint should go (the

    shorter your nails the smaller the

    tip.) Place the brush onto the corner

    of your nail and turn your finger

    instead of moving the brush. For

    shorter nails paint slightly more

    than the natural white of your nails

    to make them appear longer. Once

    you have completed the first layer of

    white repaint the white to intensify

    the color.

    After you have finished the

    tips paint a nude nail color over the

    whole nail to make your nails look

    shiny and flawless. As soon as the

    nude color has dried paint a topcoat

    (I like OPIs topcoat) over the entire

    nail and you are finished! Let the dry

    before you do much because you dont

    want to smudge!

  • These are stickers made out of

    nail polish made to stick easily

    and cleanly to any nail shape or

    size. To use these you must

    clean your nails of any excess

    nail polish and any oils that may

    be on your nails. To remove any

    oils you may use nail polish

    remover or rubbing alcohol.

    Once your nails are free of oil

    you heat up the nail stickers by

    rubbing them (so that they dont

    tare as easily), then peel off the

    sticker you want and place the

    curved side towards your

    cuticle. Starting on one side of

    your nail place the sticker down

    and begin to push it down

    moving towards the other side

    of your nail making sure that

    there are no bumps beneath the

    sticker. Then use nail clippers to

    cut off most of the extra sticker

    then save it or discard it. Use a

    nail file (glass works best) to

    smooth down the sticker and

    the edges of your nail then file

    away the extra sticker at the

    end of your nail making sure

    that the sticker is pressed firmly

    to your nail so you dont file

    away too much of the sticker

    leaving a blank spot on your

    nail. These will stay on a week

    to two weeks depending on the

    conditions you use them in.
