Here are the 6 Simple steps to paint your nails

 

1. Choose the color you want to paint your nails

When painting your nails, it is important to use the correct color and type of polish for your skin tone. For example, someone with a light skin tone might want to use a pale pink polish, while someone with a dark skin tone might want to use a black polish.

2. Paint your nails with the base coat

When painting your nails, it's important to use a base coat to protect your nails from staining and discoloration. A base coat also helps polish stick to your nails better, which results in long-lasting nail color. Make sure to apply a thin layer of base coat to each nail and wait for it to dry before moving on to the next step.

 3. Paint each nail with the desired color, making sure to avoid streaks

When painting your nails, make sure to avoid streaks by using a steady hand. Paint each nail with the desired color, making sure to apply a thin layer and wait for it to dry before moving on to the next one. If it takes more than two coats of paint to get an even coverage, then it's time to call it quits.
