Today I want to share my hacks of creating this French Chevron nail art. Its supper easy and good for summer. You can customize it with your own choice of color. Materials Required: 1. A base coat - You will probably see nails getting yellow and soften after too much chemicals build up from polish. You want to get a good base polish to help protect your natural nails. 2. Straight-edge nail clipper, to get a square shape 3. Nail polish remover - to clean up the edges 4. 2 colors of your choice and a metallic or glitter polish 5. Top Coat - Using the right top coat makes a huge difference in the longevity of your manicure. Step by step Tutorial: 1. To start with, I apply this clear base coat and wait till it dry. 2. Next I am using a tile blue striping polish and painting left corner of my nail. Once its dry, using a while paint to fill the right corner. and create this V-shape. Normally a French manicure would be in a curve. Here we want to create this strong V-shape 3. Then you will need a thin brush (you can also use a toothpick to create a straight thin like with glitter polish) 4. Finish up with a clear or matte coat. One take away from me is that When I paint, I start in the center and move down then outward. In addition, I like to make sure that I am painting in thin coats. and Voila! This Easy French Chevron nail is done. I recommend at least 15 minutes before you touch other things. It can actually take up to two hours for your nails to dry fully. Once the nail color is dry, I also massage this oil into my cuticles for added moisture. OPI - Nail Lacquer Base Coat
💅A crucial step that you shouldn’t skip when doing manicure
As a person who changes nail colors and styles quite often, I know well about the importance of taking good care of my nails. Nails can be very brittle sometimes. Here’s what I usually do to properly care for them. Before I do my manicure at home, I always clean my hands and nails beds thoroughly by removing leftover polish. Then I completely dry your nails before application. A base coat is a crucial step which you shouldn’t skip. It helps to protect your nails and to keep the colors for a longer time. If you put the polish color directly on your nails, it is very likely to result in staining. OPI - Nail Lacquer Base Coat One of my favorite base coat products is OPI natural nail base coat. Price: $10.5 for 0.5 oz Claims: has an extended-wear formula; prevents staining of natural nails and promotes a long-lasting manicure. My thought: I feel like this product does help to extend the wear of my polish. The formula is gentle. What surprised me a lot was that even when I mixed and matched it with polish from other brands, such as Essie, it still worked well and presented good results. I always get compliments on how my nails look like gel nails, but they’re actually natural! The secret is to apply one base coat, two coats of color and then a top coat. It sounds so easy but I find it perfect for a home manicure.
It seems like I applied nail polish, but actually I didn't!
🧤Cooking and playing piano can’t keep long nails 🧤The nail bed is not long and thin 🧤Don't like doing phototherapy manicure 🧤Nail polish is easy to fall off 🧤Nail polish on short nails doesn't look good The above reasons lead me to find another way to treat my nails. I prefer to remove the dead skin regularly and polish my nails. I bought Mr.Green nail tools. Step 1 Glass nail buffer It is a polishing tool that can polish the desired thickness according to the needs. It can also remove long nails while polishing. After polishing, it seems to be painted with bright oil, and the nails are very clean and shiny. If your nails are not smooth, try this! Step 2 Exfoliating Mainly use the shovel head side, especially for pushing the dead skin of toe nails, which can be easily removed without soaking the dead skin. There is no sharp blade and you don't need to worry about hurting the nails at all. After the toenail is treated, it will be obvious that the nail bed is longer. Step 3 Cuticle trimmer It is used for trimming the edges of the fingers after removing the dead skin. Step 4 Cuticlel oil I use OPI - ProSpa Nail & Cuticle Oil, which smells good. ❗️Not all fingers are suitable for pushing dead skin. Some people don't have enough coverage of fingering, and there is no space to push. Hard push will only cause bleeding.
If you have peeling cuticles or brittle nails, you can't miss this babe😘
Many people asked how to get rid of peeling cuticles and brittle nails, so today I'm going to share my tips with you. 1. Make sure to apply hand cream and sunscreen every day! 2. Wash your hands with warm water. Don't use soap frequently, or your hands will feel very dry after washing. I suggest you wash with a mild disinfectant hand sanitizer. Remember to apply hand cream and curicle oil after washing. 3. Don't tear the polish glue by yourself, which will bring damage to your nail!s You must use professional products to do so. 4. I sincerely recommendOPI - ProSpa Nail & Cuticle Oilto everyone, which contains avocado oil. It helps enhance nail nutrition.There are also white tea ingredients that can strengthen and recover damaged nails. Its smell is particularly good with light fragrance. After applying the hand cream, use the dropper to absorb the cuticle oil, drop it on the nail and gently massage until it is absorbed. It is not greasy after absorption. Keep on using it and your nails will be shiny! What do you think of this product?

Paint you own nails at home! 💅🏽
Painting your nails solo can be tricky, but here is how do them without any help. 🤩 🔥 using the OPI - OPI Nail Lacquer in “This Cost Me A Mint” ✨ Start with clean & manicured nails: clipped, filed, buffed. Next, using your dominant hand, start with your first or base coat of polish; Start at the cuticle and slowly stroke your way up to the top of the nail bed. Do this until the entire nail is covered. Wait a couple minutes to let the first coat dry and continue until the polish is opaque. You don’t want to use more than 3 coats of polish; the more you use, the longer it will take for your nails to dry. Finish with a fast drying top coat - my current fave is OPI - Rapidry Top Coat and voila! Freshly painted nails 🥳 I usually wait 2-3mins between each coat to let it dry. When I’m all done with the paint job, I’ll take a cuticle stick/pusher with a little cotton soaked in acetone to clean up around the edges. Try to do this throughout the process so that you have less to clean up at the end. 🌟 Favorite brands of polishes to use: OPI - OPI Nail Lacquer essie - Enamel Nail Polish ella+mila - Elite Collection Nail Polish 💛 hope you enjoyed the tips! #CheriePartner
Favorite/Go-To Nail Polish! 💅🏽
When I get my nails done, I can take forever to decide what color I want to get. However, when in doubt, I always end up going back to my neutrals because they never disappoint. 👏🏽 One of my very favorite colors is the OPI - OPI Nail Lacquer in “This Cost Me A Mint” - it’s perfect color for any occasion! It has a green tint to it but can look like a cement-ish color on certain angles. It’s a cool tone shade and can honestly be used in summer, spring, fall & winter. ✨ This color also goes on smoothly and I rarely or never have issues with it streaking of being too clumpy. If I’m getting my nails done professionally, I just bring the color with me and hav the technicians use it. However, if painting my own nails (which I’m sure we all have been doing since being in quarantine) I also like to use the OPI - Rapidry Top Coat so that I don’t have to wait forever for my nails to dry. Also included is a pic of my quarantine manicure that I did! 🌟 I was very proud of this nail job btw 😆 Tell me... what’s your favorite nail color? #CheriePartner 💛
Create 🌈 Ombre at home
Starting off, as always, shape, sand, buff your nails before moving onto nail polish. If you have extra time, give yourself a massage and soften the cuticles. Lets get directly to the paining Here are the tools you will need for this nail art and I will be link the tools and polish I used in the end. Materials Required: 1. A base coat - You will probably see nails getting yellow and soften after too much chemicals build up from polish. You want to get a good base polish to help protect your natural nails. 2. 3 or more tones of regular polish and a makeup sponge. 3. Nail polish remover - to clean up the edges 5. Clear nail polish What I did here is to apply those different colors on the sponge and slightly sponge it on to the nail. You may want to repeat this 2 to 3 times until you get the look you want. Sometimes if the color is too light, I’ll wait about a minute for the layers to dry and repeat the same process by adding more polish to the sponge. And I also like to use a gold polish apply on the tip of my nail with my thumb to add some metallic element. Then clean up the excess polish with nail polish remover before using the clear nail polish to finish up. If you are a beginner or you dont want to get nail polishes around your fingers, it is also a good way to apply a latex around you nail to protect skin while getting a clean finish look.

Perfect At-Home Mani! No Chips or Smudging
Since salons are closed, I’ve been trying to perfect my at home manicure situation. Good products are half the battle, the other half is technique. deborah lippmann - All About That Base Correct and Conceal Base Coat gives my nails a smooth surface to work with, and gives whatever colour on top a true neutral surface to layer on top of. Because of this colour payoff is always true! It discourages chipping and keeps my nails from being stained or dried out. I love this brand because it’s 7 free (free of 7 common nail polish chemicals) and is cleaner than most polish brands out on the market. For technique, I paint three small strokes in a thin layer with only a small amount on the brush. I do this after i’ve filed and buffed my nails gently. Sometimes I have shaking hands, so I hold my breath when painting and hold the brush at the base! One key is having a small enough brush that is doesn’t go everywhere, and I love the size of this polish brush for my own nails. If you find it too big, go ahead and trim it to fit your needs and your nails! Good overhead lighting to see missed spots and patches as well as any debris caught in the polish is also key and very beneficial to perfecting the polish surface. I do one layer of base coat, two of colour, and one top coat. I chose a deborah lippmann - Glitter Nail Color as they’re some of my favorite polish formulations and don’t dry out of get chunky. When practicing painting nails, sheer polished and glitters are the most forgiving (versus opaque creme polish) as patches, bumps, and smudges are less noticeable . Any mistakes on my fingers I clean with acetone and an orange wood stick before moving on. Try not to use cotton as the fibers can get stuck in the polish! Make sure each nail is fully dry between each layer to avoid pilling of polish. If I mess up and it’s not recoverable, I take the polish off while it’s still wet and start over— it comes off the easiest this way! For beginners, liquid latex or the equivalent is amazing, you can put it around the perimeter of your nails on your skin to avoid having to clean up with acetone! deborah lippmann - Addicted to Speed Ultra Quick Dry Top Coat is an amazing top coat. Most of my smudges happen during the drying process, and this ensures my nails dry as quick as possible with a beautiful shine. Rather than a full hour, my nails take 20 minutes tops to dry with this top coat. I’ve rephrased this many times and will continue to do so! If a smudge does happen, I put oil on my nail like deborah lippmann - Cuticle Oil Nail Cuticle Treatment and smooth it out gently by tapping my nail on top with another finger (wait until it’s over half way dry to do this or you’ll end up with finger prints). The paint will last me about ten days before chipping. Happy painting! Finish with a hand creme to lock in moisture. Any questions, please leave in the comments!

Classic Cherry Red Nails Look for This Summer
Summer is the perfect time to try out vivid and bold nail colours. For this time, I have chosen a vibrant cherry red colour that looks very classy and eye-catching. I find that for cherry red nail polish, it looks best on long nails. Currently, I just painted on my natural nails, but I shaped them into long, square shape for an elegant look. There is no shape, just pure cherry red, because I think simple is best, especially for bold and classic colours like this. To achieve this look is very simple where you can just do it at home by yourself because it only involves painting on nail polish. I grew my nails out and shaped them into squares. Then I simply applied a base coat first to help with even application and longevity, and to protect my nails. Vivid colours like this will stain the nails and a base coat will prevent that. After the base coat dries, apply the red nail polish, once is enough since we don’t want the colour to be too dark, which is not suitable for summer. Then when it dries, I would finish off with a top coat to once again help with the longevity of the colours. The whole process took 20 minutes max.

Today I’m using this light velvet color that matches with one of my blouse. A white polish to create petals. Some dotting tools And finally base and top coat. Starting by painting the top a clear layer of base coat to protect your nails. After adding your base color, start making daisy flowers on the nail! Its best to make a leaf individually from the outside toward the center. This way makes it easier to make a daisy. With the brush, use your white polish to create petals one by one. It doesnt have to be perfect. One tip here is not to use to much nail polish at a time, let the brush to create that texture. Then use a doting tool to create a yellow dot in the center. If you want more details, the next step you can use a woodstick to create the tiny dots with white polish in the center. you can also use glitter nails to add extra sparkles. Finish up with top coat. It is a supper cute nail design you can wear from srping to summer.

Ombré Nails Tutorial
Need a use for those old cosmetic sponges? This is nail look perfect for that! What you’ll need: •cosmetic sponge (any shape is OK) •3 nail polishes that will look nice together •paper towel •2 q-tips or a tiny paint brush •nail polish remover •top coat Steps: 1. Paint your nails the color that is the lightest out of your 3 chosen shades. Only paint 1 layer - don’t worry if it’s messy or not opaque. This layer must be completely dry! 2. Take your cosmetic sponge and paint 3 thin lines using your polishes. The color closest to the edge will be closest to your cuticle, so keep that in mind for your finished results. 3. Bounce the sponge 1x on your paper towel to remove excess polish. 4. Bounce the sponge on your nail a few times while slightly rotating your nail so that you get polish on all edges. 5. Repeat on each nail. 6. After first layer has dried, repeat with a second layer. 7. Clean up around your nail with a q-tip or paint brushes dipped in nail polish remover. 8. Once all nails are completely dry, seal in your ombré mani with top coat. Note: I wasn’t able to remove all of the excess polish around my nails with my polish remover soaked q-tip. I suggest doing this mani a day ahead of time because after a few hand washes the excess will wash away on its own. Products I used: Seche - Vite Dry Fast Clear Top Coat Sally Hansen - Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in shades “babe blue” & “jam sesh” Sally Hansen - Miracle Gel shade “tidal wave” up&up - Strengthening Nail Polish Remover I’m not sure where I got the cosmetic sponge, but you can easily find packs of them at any drugstore, Walmart, Target, etc for very cheap!
