Having your nails done at a salon can be pricey and it’s not always possible to get there. Here are a few tips on how to do your own nail art. When you have the right tools, doing your own nails is easy and fun!
Make sure you have all the right tools for the job. You will need: nail polish remover, cotton wool, a good base coat, a top coat, cuticle oil (optional), hand cream or moisturiser (optional), a few different colours of nail polish, a good quality nail art striper and some nail stickers if you want them.
Prepare your nails by pushing back your cuticles and remove any old nail polish with the remover and cotton wool.
Apply a good base coat and let dry for about 10 minutes. Apply 1-2 coats of colour depending on how opaque you like it. Let dry for about 20 minutes before applying top coat and letting dry completely.
Now that your nails are prepared, it’s time to start doing your art! The most important thing to remember is that practice makes perfect. It may take some time before you get the hang of it but don’t give up! Trust me, doing your own nails is much cheaper than going to the salon every time so
You can do your own nail art! You can do it yourself at home in a matter of minutes, and with or without tools. These are basic tips that any beginner should know for DIY nail art.
1. First, you will want to prep your nails by cleaning them with a cotton ball and polish remover. This is a great way to remove any old polish from your nails and help the new polish stick better, too.
2. Next, paint on the base coat of polish, and let it dry for about 3-4 minutes. Then, paint on the next layer of polish, which is the color you want to show on your nails. On top of that layer of polish, you can either use glitter or rhinestones to add some bling to your nails! If you are using glitter, simply brush it onto the nails while they are still wet with color nail polish. If you are using rhinestones, use tweezers or a toothpick to place them onto the nails before applying a clear coat over everything.
3. Once all of your decorations have been added to your nails, let them dry completely (about 10-15 minutes) before applying a clear top coat over everything! This will help protect your manicure from ch
Nail art can be expensive and time consuming, but if you follow these steps you’ll be sure to perfect your nail art from home.
1) Make sure your nails are clean and trimmed. The best way to prep your nail is by filing the top of your nail, removing the shine. This will help the polish adhere better to your nail.

To create rounder dots, dip the tip of the toothpick into some polish remover before gently pushing it onto the surface of your nail. You can also use a bobby pin or the end of an earring to create different shaped dots. Once finished with this step, let it dry for about 5 minutes.
