Here are some tips for painting your nails properly:
Start with clean nails: Make sure your nails are clean, dry, and free of any old polish or oils before you start painting.
Use a base coat: Apply a base coat to your nails to create a smooth surface and protect them from staining.
Apply thin coats: It’s better to apply thin coats of nail polish rather than thick ones. This will help the polish dry faster and prevent it from smudging.
Allow proper drying time: Give each coat of nail polish enough time to dry before applying the next one. This will help prevent smudging and ensure the polish lasts longer.
Use a topcoat: Apply a topcoat to your nails to seal in the color and add shine. This will also help prevent chipping.
Clean up any mistakes: Use a cotton swab dipped in nail polish remover to clean up any mistakes or smudges around your nails.
Keep your hands still: To prevent smudging, keep your hands still and avoid touching anything until the nail polish is completely dry.
Store your nail polish properly: Store your nail polish in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to prevent it from drying out or becoming thick and gloopy.
