  • Start Simple 

Put it in mind that in starting, less is more sometimes; especially if you have never worn this form of art before. Shake your nerves off by leaving the complicated designs for other moments and begin with one or two solid colours that you can balance and which you can alternately wear between your fingers or hands. In unsure moments, you can even leave some nails uncoloured. Remember, what matters is making yourself feel good and being confident in your skin.

  • Plan

Planning really goes a long way in preparing for anything successfully. For nail art, making decisions on what colours to choose, what fingernails to paint on and/ or the hand to go with, is most important in bringing out the overall beauty of this art. This way, you will go about feeling super duper with little or no mistakes and also, breathing life into your intentions. As impulsive as this art might seem for some people, planning is most crucial in making it looking good and definitely making you stand out like a glow in the dark.

  • Practice 

Nail art, like any other form of art, attains perfection from practice. From achieving that neat and simple look to the stylish boyish filling designs, practising is important in making your nails a beauty to behold. This definitely goes for those who are into the art of doing this themselves. There are a plethora of platforms out there to learn from. Savour them all and you’ll find your nails being better as you go on. 

Who says men can’t slay too?

  • Stick To Trusted Product Brands 

Like all parts of our body, our nails are also important, hence the reason we should pay attention to what to use on them. In the journey of this art, do your best to stick to tried and trusted brands. This way, you’re provided with assurance about what you use on them and the quality they’ll give you in the end. These products also go on to define your nail art and its longevity. They will also ensure you achieve a more even coat of varnish that you won’t have to go over a thousand times for vibrant results.

Remember, under no conditions should you forget to prime your nails with a base coat and finish with a topcoat. This way, your work of art gets the possibility of lasting as long as possible.
