However, as chic and exciting as the nude nails can be, they can terribly go wrong if done in a hurry, and you don’t select the correct polish and do the right preparation for the nails. Check over here for more info on how to correctly prepare nude nails for polish.
- Part 1:-Select The Correct Nude Polish
- Choose crème polish- while there are many nude nail polish finishes such as matte, metallic, and shimmer, the look appears more flattering if you go for crème shade.
- Match your skin tone- when selecting a nude polish, go for a hue that matches your skin tone.
- Choose a darker or lighter polish than your skin tone- when doing nude nails, and you don’t want to choose a polish that exactly matches your skin undertone. Instead, you want a subtle contrast between the shade you choose and your skin tone.
Part 2:-Preparing the Nails.
- Trim the nails-nude manicure will appear great on short nails. However, if you have elongated nails, it can seem like a French manicure. So, trim them down to a shorter length before applying any polish.
- File the nails to have a perfect shape- the right length is not enough; you will want to file them to give them a good shape before applying the polish. Generally, shapes such as oval and round offer the best nude nail design. Use your nail file and gently shape them to your desired shape.
- Apply the base coat- to make sure that the nude polish adheres perfectly to the nail’s shape, use the base coat first. Then, apply one layer of it and give it some time to dry completely.
Part 3:-Applying the Polish.
- Apply one coat of the polish and give it some time to dry completely- once it is entirely dried, apply the nude polish. First, start with the light strokes to ensure the polish is well distributed all over the nails.
- Apply the second coat if you deem it necessary-once the first coat is completely dry, check the nails through the natural light. If they impress you, leave them alone. But when the layers are too streaky, opt for the second layer of nude polish and make it more unique.
- Add a top coat-when the polish is dry, you should add a transparent topcoat. This helps add an extra glow to the nude nails and prevent nail breakages, so the nude polish lasts a little longer. Apply this one final topcoat and let it dry completely.
