How to Apply Nail Polish The Right Way

Being able to apply nail polish the right way is not something that is sacred only to those women working in your favorite salon. More and more women are saving money by doing their own nails each month. Many times the results of their own manicures are as good if not better then what they receive at the salon. It is time for you to join this group and start saving yourself hundreds of dollars on trips to the salon.
The reason that a manicure out costs so much money is that it pays for the specialized training that the person sitting in front of you received. The good news is that you do not have to go to school to learn this technique. The ladies that do your nails in the salons spent hours in classes learning how to make you look good. It will not take you any where near that long to be able to do this yourself. Once you have read through this post, you will be ready to create your own amazing looks.
If you are ready to take charge of your nail beauty routine, it is time to learn how to apply nail polish. Lets get started.
Step One
When you apply nail polish, you want to make sure that you are starting out with a clean dry nail for your new color to be put on. Remove any old nail polish with a non acetone nail polish remover. This is the healthiest way to do this for your nails.
Step Two
Wash and dry your hands completely. This will remove any excess polish remover and properly prepare for the application process.
Step Three
Dip the brush into the bottle and get a generous amount of product on it. It is a good strategy to cover the entire nail with color with one to two strokes of the brush when you apply nail polish. Doing this will help to keep you from getting color on your skin.
Step Four
Depending on the brand and color that you are using, you will want to apply 1 to 2 layers of color. You will want to allow each layer to dry for a couple of minutes prior to applying the next one.
Step Five
The final step to apply nail polish is to seal in your color with a clear topcoat. Apply the topcoat in the same manner as you did the color. You must allow your nails to dry completely to make sure that they look truly fabulous!
