I use nail polish remover, white nail polish, clear nail polish, cotton balls,
clippers, tweezers, Q-tips and a file.
and I start with a clean slate.
(I always paint my nails in the bathroom so these pics are probably craptacular since it was 10:00 at night - good night babies - and there is no natural light. sorry.)
and then I clean them out, file them down and file off the top layer.
No pics of me cleaning them - I mean really - who wants to see that! yuck!
I use the white nail polish and just brush it on - I just go for it.
I don't worry about lines or anything and I always do 2-3 coats.
I always have to add a cotton ball inbetween my toe and pinky toe - for some reason it likes to hide.
After the white is dry, I pour a little bit of nail polish remover in the cap...
... roll my Q-tip up tight...
... dip it into the remover and then take off the extra polish that I don't need.
This makes a clean straight line.
So much easier than trying to paint it on straight.
You can see in the circle that sometimes the paint ripples a little bit.
Don't worry about it. When you apply the clear coat it will even it out.
See. Here is the clear coat.
And you are done! With super cute nails!
You could even add a cute little decal.
I am so ready to break out the flip flops and play in the sun!
(Too bad it is snowing outside.sad.)
