The idea of painting your nails is nothing new, but you might want to give the hobby a shot if you’re looking for a good price.
It’s a DIY experience that involves a bit of trial and error.
But what you need to know is that painting nails can be a great way to give yourself a little manicure on the go.
Here’s how to do it, from start to finish:Start with a clean, dry coat of acrylic paint.
Once it’s dry, apply a thin coat of a clear coat over the entire nail, using a small brush.
Then, paint your nail with a clear base coat.
Paint a gradient.
You can use any color you want to get the effect of a gradient in your nails.
Then paint your next coat of clear with a light grey or dark grey color.
Repeat the process until you’ve painted your entire nail.
Repeat this process until the whole nail is coated in the clear base color.
Apply a second coat of opaque paint over the whole top of your nail, leaving a thin line of color on the surface of the nail.
Then repeat this process for the next coat.
Repeat this process, painting your entire finger nail for a total of five coats of clear and opaque paint.
Repeat until you’re done with the entire finger, and then you’re ready to nail.
Tip: To get the best results with this method, make sure your nails are completely dry before you start painting.
It might be best to wait for a couple of days after painting to let the acrylic paint dry.
The acrylic paint will not stay put on the nail for as long as the clear paint, so it will need to be completely dry.
Tip 2: Use the paintbrush to paint over nails from a distanceStep One: Start with the top of the first nailStep Two: Paint the entire top of each nailStep Three: Paint around the perimeter of each finger nail with clear paintStep Four: Repeat for the whole finger nailOnce you’ve finished painting the first finger nail, repeat for the second and third fingers, and so on.
Step Five: Finish painting the entire toe, using opaque paintStep Six: Repeat until all the nails have been paintedStep Seven: Apply the final coat of transparent acrylic paintStep Eight: Remove the last coat of paintStep Nine: Dry brush and wipe cleanTip: You can paint with a nail clipper or a brush dipped in nail polish remover before using it, so make sure you’re using the right tool to apply the nail polish.
Tip: If you use nail polish thinner, it will not completely coat your nails and may cause them to peel.
