How To

How to Achieve a Dimensional Manicure at Home

  • Use the cuticle pusher and snippers to shape the cuticles. Do so gently to avoid damaging them.
  • Apply cuticle oil when you’re done. Really massage it in to moisturize.
  • Mix your nail polish blend in the empty bottle by combining two parts gray polish (this is your base) with one-part navy polish.
  • Add a very small amount of loose silver pigment. This will give the nail polish that 3D effect.
  • Close the bottle, shake, and set aside.
  • Gently wipe the nails clean with nail polish remover again but avoid making contact with the cuticles (they should stay moisturized). Any cuticle oil on the nail will prevent the nail polish from properly adhering.
  • Apply your base coat. Use any brand you like. Leave to dry.
  • Shake your nail polish blend once again and paint your nails using even strokes. Do two layers of color and allow layers to dry between coats.
  • Apply your top coat.
  • Allow nails to fully dry.
