The right choice of varnishes
That the manicure turned out beautiful, correctlyPick up the varnishes. It is best to use dark glossy enamels, which are densely laid down already in one layer. Matte varnishes emphasize the irregularities of the nails, and translucent shades are very difficult to apply evenly. If you like varnishes with sparkles, choose a small shimmer. A large glitter requires skills in applying, besides, it requires an obligatory colored substrate.
To help the lacquer to lie evenly the leveling base will help. On the even nails it is applied in one layer. If the plates are covered with grooves, apply the base in two layers, drying well each.

The art of applying dark lacquer

Carefully push it to the cuticle, and then lead to the tip of the nail. Dip the brush into the lacquer again and in the same way paint the sides of the plate. If streaks are formed, wipe them with a cotton swab soaked in a nail polish remover.
