Make an impression with well-groomed nails and great colours

A perfect make-up also includes beautiful and well-groomed fingernails and toenails. Especially well-kept fingernails are very important, because they are practically the first impression that is made when you shake someone's hand. And especially at workplaces with direct contact to customers, well-kept fingernails are a must, because customers like to look at their hands and thus at their fingernails.

Tips for painting the nails

With these tips the application of the nail polish works in the twinkling of an eye. Because a perfect result when applying the nail polish is incredibly important for the overall appearance of the nails.

 1. Clean and degrease nails

First, nail polish residues should be removed from the nails and the nails should be freed from cream and other grease, then the nail polish also holds better. A nail polish remover is suitable for both. It should be ensured that you always wipe from the nail bed to the nail tip, because in the opposite case, the remains of the nail polish get into the nail bed and can lead to inflammation.
It is also important not to take a bath or hand bath before painting, as this causes the nails to swell. Later they contract again and this can lead to chipping of the nail polish.

2. Apply base coat

After cleaning the nails, a base coat should be applied. This base coat serves as protection for the nails and compensates for small unevenness. If there are strong irregularities, such as longitudinal grooves, there is a special groove filler that can be used as a base coat. The base coat also ensures that the coloured paint holds better and that the nails do not take on the colour of the paint.

3. Apply colour coat

After the base coat has dried, the coloured nail polish can be applied. It should first be noted that the nail polish should not be shaken, since the shaking small bubbles can form, which can later lead to bumps and faster flaking off the nail polish. To mix the paint better, you can roll the paint between your hands. This also has the nice side effect that the paint becomes smoother due to the heat and can be applied more easily.

Always apply the colour coat from the nail bed to the tip. The best way to do this is to use three brushstrokes: one in the middle of the nail and one to the left and right of it. To achieve a perfect result, you need two to three layers for dark paints. But each layer must first be well dried before the next one can be applied.

Especially with dark paints you can see blemishes, even if they are very small. To correct this, you should have a cotton swab soaked with nail polish remover ready, so you can correct small mistakes directly.

4. Apply top coat

The perfect finish is ensured by the application of an overcoat. This fixes the paint, protects it from scratches and splintering of the paint. In addition, the top coat gives the nails a nice shine.
A little tip: should the nails appear dull after a few days, simply apply a new layer of the overcoat, which immediately gives the nails a nice shine.
