How To Apply Nail Art Paint

Getting manicures at a salon can be expensive. Reena from Nail Creations shows you how to do a French manicure at home, on both false and natural nails, that will look great and last a long time.

Hi, my name's Reena. I'm from Nail Creations. I'm going to show you how to create nail art designs, nice and simple.

I'd like to show you how to apply nail art paints onto an actual nail. We're actually going to do a French tip. So, I put clear polish down onto her nail.

I'm going to use the nail art pen which has got a nice, thin brush. And I'm going to get the right amount of consistency onto my brush - not too much, not too less. I'm going to do a smiley line French manicure.

So I'm going to start with the right-hand side. I'm going to bring it across and we'll let it hit to the other side. And then, from the left-hand side, I'm going to bring it across again.

Position the brush. The thicker you place it down, the thicker the nail art paint is going to come out. Again, go back to the right-hand side and bring it across.

And then, I'd like you to seal the ends, to make sure that your French manicure tip lasts you longer. It's very important to do that so that it stops it from chipping. Then, to clean up any paint that you got down the sides, just like that.

You can clean up with your dotting tool or you can use an orange stick and that will just take the ends away. And then always seal that with a good top coat. And you do three coats across, or four.

Seal it across. And that's how you use your nail art pens to do a French manicure tip. I'd like to show you how to do a French on a short nail by using a lot less paint.

The less paint that you use, the thinner line that you'll get. So just make sure you've really got a little bit. Work from the right-hand side, going across, nice and thin, to the other side.

Then get a little more paint, and then work from the left-hand side, going across to the right-hand side. Try not to repeat it to much because it'll go streaky; it'll go thick. You want a nice, thin line.

And you must seal the ends, it's very important to seal the end for your French manicure to last you longer. Once your smiley line is done, I'd like you to apply a top coat to seal it. You do one, two, three strokes and you seal the ends.

The secret to sealing the ends is so that your nail polish will last you a lot longer. And that's how you do a skinny French on a natural nail.
