Opacity of the varnish depends on its texture. Before you begin the manicure, try the chosen method on one nail or plastic tips. There are some General guidelines. Classic enamel usually pretty tight - it can be applied in one or two layers. Matt varnishes require two-layer application, and the glitter - sandwich. The same number of layers required and translucent lacquers with a jelly texture.
If you are planning a combined manicure, consider the number of layers of the substrate and a top coating. For example, for a light shimmering gloss can be applied two dense base coat, and then cover with the top with glitter or holographic effect.
Consider the color of the paint. Usually dark and bright enamel have a more dense texture. Light can Shine through and lay down the strips, even after a three-layer application. In this case, will help a little trick. Before applying color nail Polish cover plate a dense layer of white enamel or tinted base. On top of it the varnish will go smoother and the stripes are not visible.
Before use, be sure to shake the nail Polish until smooth. A varnish with glitter is better to turn and leave in this position for an hour or more. Settled on the bottom of the vial glitter particles will move closer to the neck, and it will be convenient to distribute on the nail.
The number of layers affects the appearance of the manicure. Thin single-layer coating gives an effect of well-groomed hands and a slight hint of color. Therefore, applied a very light translucent varnishes and tools with fine shimmer. Three dense layer will provide a uniform opaque coating, but can kill the charm of some varnishes, making the nails "plastic".
Learn how to paint your nails. First, apply a leveling base coat; let dry. Dial the right amount of Polish on the brush and apply three strokes on the nail. If the coating looks uneven, "striped", give him a little dry and cover the plate with varnish again. Try to keep the boundary layers coincide, otherwise the manicure will look messy. The final stage - top coat with drying effect. It for a few minutes fixes all layers of nail Polish, and manicure acquires hardness and luster.
