The enamels in light colors, in pastel pink, translucent white or vanilla tones, are a classic when it comes to manicure that we do not want to do without. Natural colors that always give a careful, delicate and elegant appearance to our nails, as well as having the ability to rejuvenate our hands, visually speaking. But are you reluctant to achieve a uniform shade over the entire nail surface? In this article we give you all the tips to achieve that your enamels with this color palette are unbeatable.
- Cleanliness, a lot of cleaning.
We will not tire of repeating that, for the manicure to be perfect, both when enameling with light colors and with the most intense tones, we must have clean and dry hands and nails before starting with the application of enamels. At HandMade Beauty, to make sure that no trace of oily or soapy residue remains on the nail, we have the Pro-Clean Base, our quintessential cleaner. This base helps us to remove any remaining exfoliants, cleansers, moisturizers or oils previously used in the preparation of the hands. Apply it on the nails until you see that they are completely clean, submerging your hands in water later. We suggest being very neat in this step, essential for obtaining desirable results.
- The Importance of the Base.
The use of a base will keep our nails protected against the absorption of color and possible pigmentation of these, in addition to collaborating in the resolution of problems associated with nails such as weathered, weakness and breakage or lack of uniformity, depending on the ingredients used in their manufacture. The bases that have an ivory or vanilla hue help the color in general look brighter and that the light colors in particular are uniform when applied on the surface of the nail. In enameled with colors like Guava, jicama, Coconut, Summer Crete or the newly incorporated Rose y Peony Straightening Base with Fibers gives excellent results thanks to its ivory tone and its filling with nylon fibers.
- The Application of Color.
The thickness of the layers of polish that we apply and the movements we make with the brush also have a lot to say in this type of classic manicure. We always recommend the application of thin layers, with the unloaded brush, to avoid excess product, the appearance of irregularities or accumulations of enamel and increase the drying time. In addition, leaving a moderate waiting time between layers, will also favor the drying of our manicure. At HandMade Beauty we opted for the use of a pay-pay between layers, an effective, original, colorful and fun detail. Regarding the use of the brush, we recommend avoiding making many varied movements on the nail, and sliding it from the base to the surface of the nail starting on one side, moving to the opposite side, and finally filling the center.
- Profiling the Nails.
Are there traces of nail polish around the nail? You can remove them without problem with the help of an orange stick, wrapping the tip in a layer of cotton soaked in our Eco Nail Polish Remover, made from citrus extracts from lemon, mandarin and orange, and with an oily base that prevents dehydration associated with this type of product.
- Protect the Enamel.
The application of a last layer on the color with a Top Coat, will undoubtedly add shine and duration to our manicure. At HandMade Beauty we insist on the uniform application of the Top Coat, making sure to cover the entire surface of the nail and insisting on the tip, the area most prone to flaking, and even reinforce our manicure seal with a subsequent application of Drying Oil. In our catalog we have all these references to ensure that the manicures made with our products are absolutely professional. Our Top Coat Sun Dry will add extra shine and durability to your manicures, with its gel effect, while the Fast Dry Top Coat it will achieve ultra-fast drying. Both Top Coats will benefit from the application of Drying Oil on them, closing our manicure with an extra hydration.
