Now that spring has arrived, it's time to put away our dark polishes and add some zest to our beauty routine. To do so, we're wearing red-orange nail polish: vibrant, pigmented, and good for all skin tones!
Step 1: Prepare your nails
If you're a nail art lover then you know that a manicure doesn't start with polish, it starts with care! Before you start painting, you need to prepare the nail by making sure that each one is trimmed, filed down, and buffed smooth.
Next, massage your cuticles with a little oil, hand cream, or vaseline before pushing them back. Finally, rinse your hands with warm water and soap.
Step 2: Protecting your nails
Protect your nails from staining and create a sticky base for your polish to adhere to, both of these things will help your manicure last longer! Apply a base coat to each nail and allow it to dry to create a barrier between the polish and your nail bed, all while smoothing out any ridges.
Step 3: Painting your nails
Apply a layer of red-orange polish on each nail. Try to coat the nail in as few strokes as possible and then allow the first layer to drive before applying a second for opacity.
Correct any mistakes with a nail polish remover pen or a Q-Tip soaked in remover.
Step 4: Perfecting your nails
Finally, it's time to perfect your polish with a glossy top coat! This will also protect your polish from chipping or flaking off. Apply a thin layer over each nail and allow it to dry. That's all!
So, will you be wearing red-orange nail polish this season?
