How I paint my nails - Picture and video tutorial includin my cleanup routine

Hello lovelies!

Finally! I've created tutorial about how I paint my nails and I hope it will help at least one person :D I took a lot of inspiration in how I paint my nails now from Lacquerized back in the days.

The video tutorial is my first ever video so it is not the best but it will give you an idea. Later on I will redo it in a better quality and with a dark polish :)

    1. Aww, thank you! To be honest that is my forst ever video and it is not the best quality. I will improve it in the future, I swear :D I like better my second video tutorial on Gold flames manicure (tutorials section) x

  11. You have such gorgeous nails! I bit mine down when I was younger and now they curve up and my nails beds are uneven :(

  12. Já to prostě nechápu, jak tobě a dalším blogerkám tenhle styl lakování funguje? Když to zkusím já, tak si udělám buď velké nesouměrné "boule" laku nebo naopak rýhy:-( Ale jinak jsem ráda, že točíš konečně i videa, moc pěkný tutorial;-)

    1. Ja ti nevim..nekdy driv mi taky kolikrat ujela ruka a jak rikas mela jsem 'boule' ,ale asi je to trosku o treninku a kontrole nad stetcem a taky kdyz ta ruka ujede, tak je tu vzdy nejlepsi pritel stetecek a aceton :D

      Dekuju :) Moc se mi to video nepovedlo, je to uplne prvni,ale druhe s tutorialem na ty Gold flames manicure tak to se mi povedlo mnohem vic a zeru tu hudbu u toho :D

  13. You have naturally beautiful nails and I LOVE the video! Does it matter that I don't paint my nails that way? I lay my hand flat on the surface and paint. . maybe I should try painting my nails like you hold it! Looks so cool :) lol

    1. Thank you very much! Of course you don't have to do it like me :) Find what suits you best, how you can achieve the best results! This is just to give an idea how I do it. I like to have my hand like that because I feel it gives me better control, I can turn my hand and move it like I need :)

  18. Loved the videos! Well actually the picture tutorial was explanation enough but the videos were pretty awesome! A quick side note, who was the singer/band in the background? I loved the music as well!

  20. So jealous of your natural nails. Even though it's a pretty 'basic' tutorial, I can never get my nails perfect so thanks for this :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I've been practicing this method since I saw it on Lacquerized, but seeing it as a video tutorial was really helpful! Thanks!

  24. I've always loved the finish on your nails! This tutorial is great :)

  25. hi this is a great vid, but just a quick question.. it looks like you use a really thick layer. doesnt this take ages to dry, or leave the nails "tacky" so they are easy to smudge, for a while? what are your tips to efficiently drying the polish and keeping it looking glossy?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi, I always tend to use thicker coats so I can apply just two. I use Seche Vite fast drying topcoat which is my no.1 as it dries polish really fast so i never have a problem with smudging. Also Seche is really glossy!

  26. I just have to tell ya that the first time i used your method ( i used to lay my hand flat) i had way better control of the paint and was able to create the rounding effect on the edge by the cuticle. and the paint job itself was the best i had ever done! thanks! quick question what is your favorite base coat? i have been using orley bonder. where can u find Seche Vite at?

  29. Thanks for an amazing video!! I used to use nail polish remover for the clean-up and that sometimes didn't work or created an even bigger mess!! I will definitely try this myself, this time with pure acetone :)

  30. Lovely tutorial! I always make a mess of painting my nails, so I'll have to try this next time I do! I do need some pure acetone and a nail brush though, where did you get yours from?
