How to make a manicure

  1. Clean nails from old varnish, if necessary, give them the desired shape;
  2. After this, apply the first coat
    of lacquer. The base can be any color, but it is desirable to use a transparent one. Another good look is the contrasting color in relation to the sand;
  3. Then again apply a coat of varnish, and until it is dried, sprinkle it abundantly with sand. Now we must wait. The main disadvantage of this manicure at home is that it is difficult to understand whether the nail is dry or not. We advise you to wait at least 10 minutes in a warm room and about 15 in a cool room;
  4. After this, use a hard manicure brush to mark individual grains from the finger, shape the pattern;
  5. Above, if necessary, sand can be covered with Shellak, so it will last longer, but it will become less structural.
