How should I prepare my nail before application?

Properly preparing your nails before getting them done can help ensure that the polish goes on smoothly and lasts longer. Here are the steps you can follow to prepare your nails:

  • Remove all products on your nails: Use a cotton ball or pad dipped in nail polish remover to remove any old polish from your nails.
  • Trim and file your nails: Use nail clippers to trim your nails to the desired length and shape them with an electric nail file.
  • Soak your nails: Soak your nails in warm, soapy water for a few minutes to soften your cuticles.
  • Push back your cuticles: Use a cuticle pusher to gently push back your cuticles. Be careful not to cut them, as this can lead to infections.
  • Exfoliate your nails: Use a gentle nail scrub or a small brush to gently exfoliate your nails and remove dead skin.
  • Dry your nails: Dry your nails thoroughly with a clean towel or air dry them.
  • Apply a base coat: Apply a thin layer of base coat to your nails. This will help the polish adhere better and prevent staining.
  • Apply your nail polish: Apply one or two coats of the nail polish color of your choice.
  • Apply a top coat: Once your nail polish has hardened, apply a thin layer of top coat to protect your nails and give them a shiny finish.

By following these steps, you can ensure that your nails are properly prepared for painting and that your polish will last longer and look better.
