Things to keep in mind

After filing the nails, see if their length is equal or not.

If your nails turn yellow, clean them by adding a few drops of lemon juice or lavender oil. If desired, you can also clean the nails with toothpaste.

Instead of shaker the nail polish bottle, roll it between the two palms. This will cause nail paint to mix without bubbles.

Before applying nail polish on the nails, clean them with a cleanser or nail polish remover so that they do not have any kind of oil or cream on them and the nail polish should go well.

While applying nail polish, hold the brush with the thumb and middle finger and hold the top of the cap with the rest of the fingers. Try to apply nail paint in a thin layer and start applying another coat shortly after drying one coat.

After applying the nail polish, apply a nail polish remover on the orangewood stick or earbud around the nail and clean it.
