From cobwebs to polka dots, nail artist Jini Lim and Essie will cover you with nail art for this sweet seasonal party. These do-it-yourself looks are easy to make and Jini has some advice for those who are afraid of messing up their canvases or their crescents. "First dry the nail polish," he said. "Dab a bit of nail solvent on the tip of an index finger and gently rub it on the mistake you made, in order to smooth the surface to reapply the enamel without removing the whole thing."
To get an error-free manicure, Jini suggests practicing your painting first. "It's always best to practice the appearance on a plastic nail," he said. "Every nail polish company has a different consistency, so with practice you'll learn which one to use more or less."
Practice can be perfect, but it is also important to make sure you start with a clean nail board. Jini suggests starting with a clean and smooth fingernail. Check and make sure that the cuticles are pushed back and that the nails are clean of any debris or bumps. To get a nail prepared for polishing, Jini recommends using a fine sanding block it's a orange stick.
Be sure to complete your complete look with a bit of polish protection to help it last. "Try applying two coats of a thin layer of colored enamel," said Jini. "You can also reapply a top coat, like Essie's speed speed, to seal the manicure when it appears opaque, always make sure to moisturize the nails between the manicure and the nail polish on dry and brittle nails tends to come off faster."
