Before you start applying the varnish, prepare the nails. Soften the cuticle with a special composition, move it with a wooden stick or cut with tweezers. The edge of the nail should be filed, giving it the right shape, while making sure it is perfectly even. Treat the nail plate – wipe it with degreasing compound and wipe dry. Nails should be well prepared, after all, after applying the varnish, all the defects will look more noticeable.
Put next to everything you need – varnish, corrector for manicure, liquid for removing varnish. If you do not have artistic talents, then be patient – perhaps a flat jacket will not work out right away. Swipe the nail line – it will separate the outer edge of the nail, which you will paint over. You can do this with a gel pen with a white filler, a thin or beveled brush or a conventional brush that comes complete with a varnish. Here you will need a liquid to remove the varnish – the line will have to be washed several times, until it turns out to be a perfectly even feature. The outer part of the nail is painted with a white matte varnish. You will clean the painted nail rollers later.
If you do not get a smooth border, then use a stencil – paste a special paper on the nail plate. Check the density of fixing them to the nail so that the lacquer does not fill up. Paint the outer piece of the nail, then remove the stencil. The disadvantage of using stencils is the need to clean the nails of the glue – it has to be scraped off with a tool, since solvents can damage the manicure. Instead of a manicure stencil, you can use ordinary office tape.
Remove excess lacquer on the skin at the sides and correct the smooth curve line of the so-called”smile”, that is, the free part of the nail. The final stage – applying a transparent or pastel varnish – you can make up your nails in two layers, so that the manicure lasts longer. Clean the cuticle and the skin around the nail with a toothpick, on the tip of which a piece of cotton wool is wound – you can also use cotton wands of small diameter, moistened in a liquid to remove varnish.
