2- Apply a base coat of clear or white varnish.
3- Pour warm water (about 40 degrees) into a container, add one drop of varnish, waiting until it mixes with water Add a drop of another varnish to the middle, doing this up to 10 times. If the varnish does not spread, but falls to the bottom, then the water is cold. also It is difficult to draw in very warm water, and in cold water the varnish dries quickly. and It is inconvenient to dip your fingers in a narrow container, but in a wide container the varnish consumption increases….. always keep it in the middle
4- Use a stick or a toothpick to create a pattern that you like Wipe the stick after each application. If you do not clean the toothpick well, you will get fuzzy lines.
5- Dip the nail plate parallel to the varnish surface You need to take out your finger slowly so that the pattern is fixed evenly, remove the excess with a toothpick while still in the water. So cover all the plates. It is necessary to use varnishes of the same brand, since they are unevenly distributed due to the different structure of the different brands.
6- After drying, remove the protective film from the skin and clean the surface of the fingers with nail polish remover.
7- You can add rhinestones, sparkles and apply a layer of fixer.

Black, gray and silver look very original. The nail plates will be looking unusual if the water manicure was done on several fingers on the entire surface, and the rest were partially covered with a stencil with a preliminary application of the main layer….If you use two colors of varnish, but choose a beautiful pattern, the nails will also look unusual. A water-based manicure of light blue tones, covered with a sequin fixer, looks gorgeous.
How to match the color
The choice of varnish depends, of course, on fashion. But everyone has different tastes and not everything that is fashionable can be liked. Consider skin tone, season, situation and the structure of the varnish. Therefore, the color in the bottle may be one, but when applied to the nail, it may be different. The manicure should match the clothes, makeup, and hairstyle. It is necessary to take into account the condition of the nails, since dark shades emphasize all defects
⦿ For tanned skin, tones without a yellow tint, pastel colors are suitable. Pink and gray shades are ideal for pale skin.
⦿ When choosing a color, you need to take into account the length of the marigold. On short ones, shiny dark shades look good, as they immediately seem elongated.
⦿ Glitter, holographic and sand polishes are suitable for medium-length nails. You just need to take into account that bright colors do not lengthen the nails, but vice versa
⦿ For every day, discreet complex colors are suitable, the best option is a classic French manicure. For the evening, try dark and bright colors. In the summer, you can paint your nails with any unusual bright color; in the fall, you can cover the nail plates with complex shades. In winter, you need to paint your nails in light and classic tones. Delicate tones can be tasted in spring.
If you are at a loss in choosing a color, choose classic red and pink colors, they always look relevant.
