How To Do Green Almond Nails at Home
Giving yourself the perfect green almond nails at home is possible, even with short nails.
A few things you will need are clippers, cuticle nippers or mani scissors, file, buffer, base, and top coats, and your nail polish.
Begin your manicure.
You are going to start by gently pushing the cuticles back and trimming any excess skin that is sticking up, being careful not to overcut the cuticle.
Next, you will want to cut and/or file the nails to the shape and length you are happy and comfortable with. Followed by a light buffing of the free edge and the base of the nail to eliminate any bumps, ridges, and sharp points.
Now if your nails are completely squared off, you are going to cut the corners slightly. Followed by filing them down. You are going to hold the file loosely and file from one corner to the center in a single direction.
Once you have reached the shape you want on one side, flip the file to the other side of the nail and repeat.
After your at-home manicure and nail reshaping, you can apply some acetone to the nail to cleanse off any oils and begin polishing your base coat.
Finally, in long solid strokes from cuticle to free edge, polish the green nail color of your choice. Apply up to two coats and let it dry.
Apply your favorite shiny protective top coat, and you are as good as go for the green.
