Applying nail polish without spilling can be a challenge for many people, especially if you are new to nail polish. However, with a little practice and a few tips, you can easily become a pro. Today, the nail supply expert Maryton will reveal how to apply nail polish without overflowing to you.
Preparing your nails
Before applying polish, make sure your nails are clean, dry and free of any oils or residue. Use an electric nail file to give the desired shape to your nails. If your nails are oily, use nail polish remover to remove the oily layer. The polish will adhere better to your nails and won’t chip.
Put on a base coat
Apply a thin base coat and let it dry completely before applying nail polish. This will prevent the polish from sliding on your nails and causing damage.
Choose the right varnish brush
A good quality brush can make a huge difference in nail polish application. Look for a flat, wide brush with a pointed tip. This will help you know how to apply varnish without overflowing.
Use the right amount of nail polish
Don’t apply too much varnish on your brush. Instead, apply a thin layer of polish and spread it evenly over your nails. If you apply too much, the varnish has a good chance of overflowing…
Apply the varnish in three strokes
Start by placing the brush in the center of your nail and stretch it from the base to the edge of your nail. Then do the same on each side of the nail. This is the easiest way to apply varnish without overflowing and to have a uniform result.
Let the varnish dry
Once the varnish is applied, allow it to dry completely before applying another coat. This will prevent the varnish from spreading and overflowing. This also prevents the next layer from catching and creating roughness on the surface of your nail.
Clean the nail contour
If you make a mistake and the polish overflows, don’t worry. It happens all the time! You can use a small brush or cotton swab dipped in nail polish remover to clean up the edges. This will give your nails a clean and neat look.
