1. Prepare your nails

Use a nail polish remover to get rid of any old nail polish.

If you are using a nail drill, gently buff the top layer of your nails to remove any residue.

File your nails to the desired shape using a nail file. Be gentle with weak or damaged nails, especially if any nails are close to breaking.

Wash your hands thoroughly to remove all dust and debris from filing. Ensure your nails are clean and dry before proceeding.

2. Apply first coat of polish

Start with a thin layer of white nail polish. I am using dip polish.

Use a tiny brush for precision, especially around the edges.

Allow each layer to dry completely before applying the next.

3. Build up layers

Apply a second and third layer of white nail polish for opacity, but remember to brush off excess powder between layers.

If the polish appears patchy, consider adding a fourth layer. Ensure each layer is thin to avoid a thick, uneven finish.

4. Add top coat

Once you are satisfied with the white nail polish, apply a quick layer of top coat to seal and protect your nails.

Allow the top coat to dry completely.

5. Final touches

After applying the top coat, clean up any excess polish around your nails using a small brush dipped in nail polish remover.

Moisturize your hands and cuticles to keep them looking healthy and hydrated.
