Want to achieve pale pink nails for your upcoming wedding or special event? Below are a few tips on how you can achieve this look at home.
Step 1: Apply Nail Polish Remover
First and foremost, apply a good quality nail polish remover to remove any old polish.
Step 2: Trim And File Your Nails
You may want to cut your nails shorter if they are long and file them into a square shape (file gently in one direction). This will give you more stability when painting your nails.
Step 3: Apply A Base Coat
Apply OPI Nail Envy as a base coat to strengthen and protect the nail bed. Allow to dry fully.
Step 4: Apply The First Coat Of Polish
Apply the first coat of OPI Nail Lacquer in Pale Pink Polish. Allow 3-4 minutes to dry before applying the next coat.
Step 5: Apply A Second Coat Of Polish
Apply a second coat of OPI Nail Lacquer in Pale Pink Polish. Remember, every time you apply a new coat of polish it must be completely dried before applying another one so that it doesn’t smudge! You may find it useful to apply OPI Drip Dry Drops between coats of polish as this will help
To get a pale pink manicure, you must have the right tools and shades of polish. This is the first step to getting that pale pink nails you’ve always wanted.
The second step is to get your nails in shape with a nail buffer. You can do this by buying a nail buffer from the drugstore.
The next step is to apply a base coat of white polish to your nails, followed by two coats of pale pink polish. You should try different shades of pale pink until you find one that compliments your skin tone. For example, if you have fair skin, then you may want to go with a lighter shade of pale pink like Essie’s Ballet Slippers. If you have darker skin, then you may want to go with a darker shade of pale pink like Essie’s Ballet Slippers or OPI’s Bubble Bath.
After applying your base coat, wait at least 20 minutes before applying your topcoat. This will help prevent chipping and ensure that your manicure lasts longer.
After applying your topcoat, you can use a clear topcoat to seal it all in place so that it doesn’t chip easily or rub off on clothing or other surfaces during daily wear and tear!
To achieve the perfect pale pink manicure it is important to have a steady hand and a good quality nail polish. Start by applying your base coat. This will help your nails keep their healthy glow and will act as a buffer for the nail polish.
Once you’ve applied the base coat, take your time to ensure that you apply your first layer of nail polish in neat strokes from the centre of your nail outwards. Apply this layer thinly and evenly, as though you were painting on a watercolour.
Then, once the first layer has dried, apply a second layer of nail polish over the top. The second layer should be thicker than the first, but be careful not to make it too thick or it will take longer to dry and you may see some bubbling which would ruin your perfect manicure. Repeat this process with all the nails on one hand before moving onto the other hand. Be sure to follow this method so that all of your nails dry at an even pace; otherwise they may chip more easily or become damaged while still wet.
You can also use tape around your nails during this process if you are feeling particularly brave, however I would recommend practising with this technique before using it on freshly painted nails!
Once both hands are done, apply

Cuticle Oil (optional)The first step is to remove any old nail polish from your nails. Use a cotton ball dipped in nail polish remover to swipe across each nail until you see no more color on the cotton ball. Do this over a trash can so you don’t make a mess! Next, push back your cuticles with an orange stick. You can do this before or after removing old polish, depending on what works best for you.
Now file your nails into the shape you want them to be. I usually round my nails just slightly at the edges (like a square shape with soft edges). This is optional; you could also leave your nails as they are or shape them another way! Once your nails are prepped, you’re ready to
If you have followed my blog/Instagram for a while now, you will know I have a bit of an obsession with pale pink nail polishes. It is not that easy to find that perfect pale pink shade unless you are willing to pay the high prices of brands such as Essie and OPI. However, I am the kind of girl who likes to feel like she is getting her money’s worth when it comes to beauty products. I therefore find it hard to justify paying for more expensive nail polishes just because they are a certain colour.
I am always on the look out for drugstore nail polishes that will do just as good a job as their more expensive counterparts and give me that perfect light pink shade I love so much. After browsing through the internet and reading up on reviews, I decided to give Barry M’s Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint in Pink Lemonade a go.
The formula of these nail polishes is probably one of the best I have come across – especially at such an affordable price point! The consistency is quite thick but it applies very smoothly and evenly with 2 coats. The ‘shinyness’ factor is also very impressive – after applying two coats you are left with nails that look and feel super glossy, almost
First you should start by finding a good nail polish to use, it is best to pick a pale pink to achieve the desired effect. I am using Essie’s A Crewed Interest.
Then you want to apply two coats of polish. Make sure that you let each coat dry before applying the next one.
Once both coats have been applied, you can decide whether or not you want to add a top coat for shine and protection. If you decide not to it will probably be fine but if you do, then I would suggest using Seche Vite Top Coat as it is hands down my favorite top coat. It dries quickly, provides shine and protects the color from chipping or wearing off.
