Before you start, place everything you will need for your manicure nearby. Otherwise, you will have to look for those things when your nails are wet, and your manicure can be ruined. And do not forget to remove extra oil from your nails before applying nail polish. You can use lacquer remover. In this case, the nail polish can better adhere to your nails.
