Step 1

To begin with, you should carefully prepare your nails for varnishing: the cuticle should be well processed and moistened, the remnants of the varnish should be wiped off with a soft cotton swab or disc dipped in a non-aggressive nail polish remover, and the nails should be filed to the length and shape to be made. It is not recommended to use a nail file after you have painted your nails and the varnish has dried: this can lead to premature peeling of the varnish at the tips of the nails.

Step 2

Apply a clear base coat to protect your nails from pigmentation and possible yellow spots. The coating will also smooth out some unevenness on your nails, and the polish will fit perfectly evenly.

Step 3

Make sure the hand you are wielding with the brush is firmly supported. If you paint your toenails, place your hand on the floor next to the inside of the foot on which you are painting, and start with the smallest nail - this will reduce the risk of touching the painted nail in the process. Do not paint your toenails with your feet upright.

Step 4

Do not shake the bottle of varnish, just roll it between your palms. Shaking the bottle can cause bubbles to form, which can become noticeable when the nail polish is applied.

Step 5

Unscrew the lid along with the brush, let the excess drops of varnish drip off slightly. Start from the middle of your nail and then paint on the sides. This will help the varnish to properly distribute over the nail, and the largest amount of varnish will fall on the center of the nail.

Step 6

A layer of varnish must be allowed to dry thoroughly and only then proceed to the final stage - applying the top protective coating. It will give the nails a shine, and also allow the varnish to hold on for a long time, without peeling or cracking.

Step 7

Small errors should be removed with a toothpick wrapped in a thick layer of cotton wool and dipped in nail polish remover. A regular cotton swab can remove too much coating and the manicure will have to be redone.
