I have never been able to polish my nails well and I am not proud of that. Sometimes I feel like my hands are not listening to me at all. Even though I try to do my best, the results are never what I have expected and my nails do not look as good as I wish them to. The visits to the beauty salons for a manicure, done by a specialist cost a lot of money especially if you have to do it every week.
Fortunately, in the recent years I have learned a few useful tricks that help me to decorate my nails much more successful.
Like, for example, these three:
• I always decorate firstly the fingers of the dominant hand – in my case this is the right one. Why? Well, very simply. Since the left is weaker in the commission of such precise activities, it would be good if it is not freshly polished when doing them. Plus, as a whole, the strategy to begin first with the difficult things almost always leads to the achievement of good results.
• Besides with nail polish remover, I remove the remaining nail polish with a cotton swab soaked in vodka or in another spirit. Thus my nail plates are perfectly cleaned and fully prepared for polishing. If there is anything left on the nails such as oils for cuticles or nourishing products, the nail polish will smear.
• And last but not least: I use fast drying top coat that gives me the assurance that my manicure will not be damaged shortly after it was made. Another trick in this case is to apply thin layers of the nail polish and to wait for each one of them to completely dry before the next one.
Well, these are my little secrets. Be of good cheer!
