It’s a simple fact of life: Most of us are either left-handed or right-handed and this biological trait unfortunately can severely affect our beauty routines, especially when it comes to nail painting. How many times have you smudged, rubbed the manicure on your dominant hand while trying to paint the other hand?
Well…not to worry again, we’ve got the perfect hack to help when painting the other hand without making a mess. Here is the procedure below…
Before you start painting your nails, push your cuticles back with an orange wood stick so you have more nail space to work with.
Select your go-to base coat, and swirl the brush to make it skinny and round. Hit the tips of your nails with the base boat to seal the nail ends.
To paint your nail plate with the base coat, manipulate the brush into a flat shape and gently press the brush to the nail. Now here’s the trick, while keeping the brush still, roll your HAND to get polish along the edges of the nail and pull back to drag the brush down the nail. No shaky hands here!
Repeat the process with your color polish, adding two to three coats to depending on the sheerness of your color. Always vary the angle of your hand to create clean brush strokes every time.
Here is an Youtube video by Cute polish with the perfect nail polish hack video to show you how to paint the other hand. Prepare to enjoy perfectly manicured nails every time, whether you’re a rightly or a lefty.
NOTE– To avoid thick or sticky polish application, it’s important to wipe off the excess inside of the bottle. Make sure the color polish is only on one side of the brush when applying to your nails to avoid wasting product.
