Cooking nails and hands

Before you cover your nails with varnish and draw bows on them, it is very important to prepare them. Cut the desired shape of the nails with a non-rigid nail file. To clean the nails, make a soapy bath or with sea salt. Carefully remove the cuticle with a special spatula and then remove it, as well as any burrs. If you want to trim your nails, do this before steaming them in the bath.

Do not forget about the rules of hygiene, pre-clean tools with an antiseptic and wash your hands thoroughly, and always carry peroxide with you.

We carry out at home

At home, you can perform several simple techniques and create cute bows on the nails. With stickers everything is clear. Paint your nails, the varnish dries, stick them and fix with a colorless varnish.

But consider the more complicated technique and make a jacket with a bow on the nails. To do this:

  • Cover the nails with the main color, for example, cream or pale pink. Allow to dry;
  • Place the stencils just below the consolidated edge of the nail, where the smile line is, and paint it black or white;
  • With a thin brush, start drawing bows just above the cuticle, where the so-called lunula is located. You can make a bow in any variation - simple or more complex;
  • You can draw it with clear lines in white or make it a frame using the dots;
  • If desired, add your bows with small rhinestones;
  • Repeat design on several or all nails;
  • After drying, cover the nails with a fixative, and moisturize the cuticle with special oil.

This design can be done with conventional varnishes as well as gel options.

The advantage should be given to the second, as they are more resistant and will hold rhinestones that you can use stronger.
