We all know what a nail polish remover is, and we all know that if you’re a manicurist, you’ve probably used one before.
But do you know how to apply it to your nails, too?
This tutorial will teach you how to properly apply nail polish to your nail, using the latest technology.
“If you want to go the nail polish route, you can’t go wrong with a nail remover,” says Dr. Jill Fischbach, owner of The Beauty Brush Salon in New York City.
She explains that it’s important to choose nail polish that’s safe for your nails.
“[W]hen you do a nail wash, you’ll see that your nails have a lot of water, and that they get really red and you can see that there’s water on the nail,” Fischbats said.
“It looks really bad.
You’re going to want to use a nail-polish remover, and then you can wash the nail, and it will clear up.”
We recommend a cotton pad or cotton ball over the nail as it helps to prevent it from getting dirty.
This tutorial will show you how not to use nail polish on your nails without using a nail tool.
How to Apply Nail Polish to Your Nail Using a Nail ToolStep 1: Wash your nails thoroughly using a gentle soap and water, then apply nail color to both sides of your nails with a wet finger tip.
Step 2: Remove the polish from your nails using a dampened nail brush, and allow it to dry.
If you are using a wax remover like Dr. Fischbeck, you may need to use this for several minutes to allow the polish to set.
Tip: It is important to apply nail polishes correctly so that you don’t damage your nails and also to prevent the polish being scratched.

Step 3: Apply nail polish in the direction of your nail using a sharp, straight-edged nail tool that is not sharp enough to be used to polish your nails but has enough surface area to apply polish.
Tips for applying nail polish correctly: When applying nail color, you need to be careful to avoid any nail sharpness or roughness on the polish, and you also want to avoid the polish getting stuck in your nail polish sponge.
When applying nail polish to your natural nails, the best way to apply the nail color is with a sharp and straight-edge nail tool (no dabbing or flicking).
Nail polish will not work if you use a sharp nail brush.
If your natural nail color isn’t vibrant enough, you will need to apply more nail polish.
