4 Tips to Make Your Manicure Look Professional

Do you ever spot someone’s manicure and think ‘wow, they look so shiny, she’s definitely been for a professional manicure!’? It used to frustrate me that I couldn’t achieve the same level of excellence. Now I see people’s manicures and think ‘she definitely did that herself’ and I get frustrated that people don’t use these simple steps to make their manicures look professional.

1. Base coat

This prevents weak nails breaking and helps give a smooth surface and easier application for the coats of colour.

2. Two coats of colour

The first provides a guideline and can be quite thin. The second provides fuller coverage and gives a more vibrant overall colour and needs to be fairly thick.

3. Neat lines

Aim to start with the brush in the middle of the nail near the base and don’t hit the edges or the cuticle. The moment you do, it looks unprofessional so wipe away any varnish that touches the sides immediately.

4. Top coat

This makes your nails shine like shellac and hardens them to last longer.

    to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to
    you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly don’t know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well
    as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
