Nails: How to paint your nails 101

Hey there audies! So for today I have decided to give a quick and simple tutorial on how to paint your nails. I know it's sort of hard to paint nails perfectly, i messed up before, but I practiced until I have perfected the art of nail painting. Sounds big huh? But believe me it's easy, five easy steps and your done.

So first, do not forget your tools. 

Here's what your going to need:
Nail Polish (color of your choice)
Cotton Balls and Q-tips
Nail Polish Remover (in case of smudges)
Nail Base coat
Nail top coat or a Clear Nail Polish

How to paint your nails:


FIRST STEP: Prep your nails, be sure that it is clean and oil-free. Apply your base coat, this will help your nails to avoid staining and chipping.


 SECOND STEP: Take your Nail Polish, open it and scrape some of the excess polish off the side of the bottle, then paint a stripe in the middle of the nail

 THIRD STEP:  From the base of the nail swipe the polish along the curve of the nail. This subtly focuses the color in the middle of the nail. Remember to keep your hand steady.








FOURTH STEP: Now sweep the polish onto the other side of the nail. 
FINAL STEP: Now you have finished painting your nail. Paint them again for another coat to achieve a full and lively color, then finish it off with a top coat.







Practice makes perfect, you may experience smudges so be sure to clean those areas using a Qtip and a Nail Polish remover. Keep practicing, one day you'll be able to perfect painting your nails. Good luck!

Next time I'll show you how to paint nail art :)
