Applying nail polish involves three basic steps.

– The first base coat is applied to help for the long lasting effect of the nail polish.

– Secondly, nail polish is applied in the form of thin coats. Use two to three coats of thin polish. There is no need to apply thick layers of polish as it gives an unnatural look to the nails and it will crack and peel faster.

– Thirdly, apply the top coat that adds shine to the nails and keeps the nail polish on for longer. Apply this coat on the tips separately.

– Remove the smudges of polish after completing your manicure if there are some. Use a cotton or a brush dipped in nail polish remover for removing any polish smudges.
