1. Before applying nail polish, put a base on top of the nail. Brush a short length from your fingertips with a nail polish brush.
2. Start by brushing a long line through the middle of your nails to your fingertips.
3. The second line is parallel to the nail skin.
4. Apply long strips of paint to areas where your nails are not.
5. Apply a thin layer of nail polish. Use a second layer to enhance the color. Be careful not to brush your skin. If you do, remove it with a stylus.
