Have you always wanted to paint your nails as well as your manicurist but no matter how patiently or carefully you polished, the results never matched? Lacquerized nail polish blog has made an awesome step-by-step diagram to achieve the perfect manicure – no more air bubbles, no more streaking, no more flooding your cuticles or getting polish all over your fingers and everywhere else. Follow these steps and you’ll be sporting beautiful nails worthy of their own blog in no time (or maybe 10-15 minutes)! But first, here’s what you’ll need:

  • Polish of your choice
  • Base coat & top coat
  • Angled eyeliner brush/nail brush
  • Nail polish remover
  • Flat surface

Once you’ve followed these steps and allowed your nails to dry completely, you may have a few boo boos. No worries, that’s what your angled brush and remover are for. Dip your brush into your remover, dabbing off any excess on a paper towel or cotton pad. Lightly run your brush along the areas of polish you want to remove. From time to time, clean off any polish that builds up on your brush. Once you’ve finished with clean up, your salon perfect nails are ready to show off (or stamp and bedazzle)!
