Cute short nails are always in style and always practical - and I love a soft light blue color that feels bright, summery, and effortless. Follow this tutorial to get these light blue nails for yourself - I used a squoval shape but you could do almond nails or oval nails, too! Do you like short nails or long nails better?
1️⃣ I start by doing my nail prep to shape the nail & clean up the cuticles for a salon like look. Then I wash my hands to rid of any nail dust, cuticles & dirt.
2️⃣ I dot nail polish at the top of my nail bed in the side and swipe Down to the top tip of my nail then to the other side. (you're able to have more control in my opinion) Very Easy Application process.
3️⃣ I do my pinky first & work my way over to my thumb, when I'm doing my thumb I like to make a fist and point my thumb up so that way I have stability.
4️⃣ Left hand first then my right. I use the led cure light & a fan between each coat to ensure it’s all dry & set to last longer. I usually get about 2 weeks wear time.
