Nail Game

Now is the perfect time to chop and change your nails. Give them a makeover with the perfect manicure.



  • Shape your nails: File your nails evenly so they all look the same before you apply your nail polish.
  • Apply base colour: Apply two coats of your nail polish of choice as your base colour.




Step 2:

  • Create patterns: Use a small brush or the rounded bottom of a bobby pin to create lines from the tip of the nail with a different colour.



Step 3:

  • Make hearts: Using the same small brush, create hearts or flowers on the open spaces on the nail.



Step 4:

  • Top coat: Apply a clear top coat over all your nails to help the designs last longer and to protect the nail polish from chipping.
