HOW TO SUCCEED WITH YOUR NAIL ACCENT WITHOUT MOVING FROM YOUR SOFA?
First of all, we recommend that you use the adequate manicure and pedicure set to take care of your nails before applying some varnish on your nails.
• Apply a base then two coats of the chosen varnish on all the nails, except the finger on which you want to emphasize.
• On the nail left bare, apply the desired varnish, while making sure to choose a complementary shade to that applied to the other nails. Want some glitter? Apply a layer of glitter varnish over the base varnish. Those who want a patterned nail will need to get a dotting tool.
• Once the nails are dry, we move on to the application of the top coat for a long-lasting manicure and voila!
