Apply a coat of your favorite nail polish. Don’t worry about it going over the edge of you nails and on to your cuticles and the surrounding skin. Wait for it to dry. Make sure it is completely dry. Apply a second coat. Again don’t worry about not being neat. Apply a top coat of clear nail polish. Prepare a sink of hot soapy water. Wash your hands in the water and massage the skin around your nails.Gently rub your fingers with an old sponge or cloth. Drain the sink and rinse your hands with cold water. Any nail polish that went off your nails will have been washed away by the hot water. If after two coats of your favorite nail polish the colour is still a bit weak, feel free to apply another coat. Before you apply nail polish to your nails, make sure you apply a base coat to prevent getting your nails stained from the nail polish. If your nail polish is too thick, you can buy nail polish thinner. However, do not add nail polish remover to your nail polish, as this will ruin the nail polish. You could also dip a Q-tip in nail polish remover and rub away specks on your skin as an alternate to the hot water. Make sure you look after your nails. If you have flaked nails, try to go neatly and slowly over the flaked parts. When applying nail polish start in the middle of your nail and the move on to the other sides. You should only need 3 strokes. Always start from the cuticle and work towards the tip. Make sure the nail polish is dry before applying a top coat.
