New nail polish, new nail design…
I used vegan nail polish brand Seren and Barry M cosmetics. This was my first time using it, the product is less thicker than your ordinary brand. In total, you will need to use three coats of paint, excluding base coat and top coat. I don’t have all the professional nail equipment, but I use what I can in the house to assist the nail looks. Again for this design, I used the edge of kebab sticks (snapped in half) to create the diagonal strokes. It won’t come out perfectly, but it is worth a try when you want to experiment your creativity.
The whole procedure doesn’t take up too much of your day. However, the moment when you are doing your nails allows you to hyper focus. It’s one of the times during the day you can relax and remain mindful of what you’re doing and how you want the pattern/design to be. I used ultra form tips to add extension to the original nail bed. Prior to the installation, a full manicure was done. This includes cutting the cuticles, filling the nail bed to lay flat and shaping your natural nail.
Overall, it’s time to set aside your day to do something nice for yourself. Eventually, once you’ve learnt the expertise of the trade, you can go on to do it for other people and practice. This will help add to your knowledge on how to work with different people and their differentiations.
I hope you enjoyed this post and #StayPolished💅🏾
