Perfect nails, we all dream of them. But difficult to achieve this. So when the time comes to put on your nail polish, a small problem always comes to confront us. Broken nail, damaged or chipped nail polish…Today, I’m giving you 7 tips that will help you get perfect nails!
1. File your nails properly
To begin, you will need to arm yourself with your nail file, in order to take care of the shape of your nails. Square or rounded, the choice is yours! But only one tip: do not go back and forth and always file in the same direction.
2. Fix broken nails
When one of our nails breaks, we always want to cut everything… No! There is a solution to avoid the drama. All you need is: cut a small square of fabric in the tea bag, place a touch of transparent varnish on the break and put the small bandage over it, simply helping you with the small wooden stick. Then put a second coat of clear varnish to fix everything.
3. Push back the cuticles
A step often overlooked, but having its importance. Pushing back your cuticles will release the nail as much as possible, you will thus obtain a perfect shape and this will ensure a clean and neat nail polish.
4. Use a base
Now your nails are ready! It is therefore time to apply a base coat which will have the advantage of reducing any small streaks and which will protect your nails at the same time. For application, one coat is sufficient.
5. Apply your nail polish
After choosing your nail polish, all you have to do is apply it correctly in two layers. The first layer allows you to outline the area of the varnish, and the second layer will make the color of your nail polish more intense and more opaque.
6. Apply a top coat
This is the last step for a perfect home manicure: apply a top coat on your completely dry nails. This will ensure a nice shine, but also a longer hold of the varnish.
The hardest step for many of us. Patience must be the key word. Don’t think of anything, don’t touch anything and wait. What’s more, you can also use a UV nail lamp, which can help you to dry your nails quickly.
