Effortless Nail Lacquer Application: Achieve Salon-Quality, Vibrant Manicures at Home!

by ANH HUYNH 18 Mar 2023

Applying nail lacquer is a simple process that can be done at home to achieve a polished and colorful finish. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to use nail lacquer on nails:

  1. Prepare your nails: Remove any old nail polish and gently push back your cuticles. Trim and file your natural nails to the desired length and shape. Clean your nails with nail polish remover or alcohol to remove any oil or debris.

  2. Apply a base coat: Apply a thin layer of base coat to your nails. This helps the nail lacquer adhere better to your nails and prevents staining. Allow the base coat to dry for a few minutes.

  3. Apply the nail lacquer: Shake the nail lacquer bottle to ensure the color is well-mixed. Apply a thin and even layer of nail lacquer to your nails, starting at the base and stroking towards the tip. Use a brush with a small amount of nail lacquer to carefully paint around the cuticles and sidewalls. Allow the first coat to dry for a few minutes.

  4. Apply additional coats (if needed): For a more opaque color, apply additional thin layers of nail lacquer, allowing each layer to dry before applying the next one. Two to three layers are usually sufficient for most nail lacquers.

  5. Apply a top coat: Once the desired color opacity is achieved, apply a thin layer of top coat to seal and protect the color, ensuring a shiny and long-lasting finish. Allow the top coat to dry for a few minutes.

  6. Clean up any mistakes: If needed, use a small brush dipped in nail polish remover or acetone to clean up any polish that has gotten onto your cuticles or skin.

  7. Maintain your nail lacquer manicure: Nail lacquer typically lasts up to a week with proper care. Apply cuticle oil regularly to keep your nails hydrated, and avoid using your nails as tools to prevent chipping or peeling.

To remove nail lacquer, use a nail polish remover containing acetone or a non-acetone formula, depending on your preference. Soak a cotton pad in the remover and gently rub it on the nails until the lacquer is completely removed.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
