How To Do Navy Blue Nails at Home
Ready to give navy blue nails a try at home? When it comes to doing your nails at home, prepping your nails is key to making them last!
Clean your nails with a nail polish remover for a grease-free base to work from. Then you can file and shape as required, paying attention to creating a smooth edge with a buffer. Push your cuticles back to elongate your nails and use a good quality cuticle oil or cream to keep them soft. Before you apply polish, always wipe over each nail with some extra remover to ensure you get rid of any residue from the filing.
With a dark color like navy blue, you want to build the color in layers by applying thin coats – Applying too much at once can look messy and increases your chance of unsightly bumpy nails! Always finish with a coat of good-quality clear polish and make sure they are completely dry before you touch anything to make your set last longer and reduce the chances of the paint chipping.
If you can’t stand chipped nails, opt for UV gel polish for a chip-free finish!
