Shades Of Nykaa Nailpaints

                             If nothing ever changed, there would be no butterflies

As they say change is the flavour of life.Diversity in all aspects of your life brings lots of salt and sugar.And same goes with my diversified interest in beauty world.

How many of you religiously takes care of your nails?Remember the last time you have pampered your nails, indulged in some creative manicure.I know going to the salon regularly is a far fetched idea.In today’s rat race, nobody has the time or patience.And it certainly cost a bomb.So why not appease ourselves with easy , creative and affordable mani.

Start with choosing your nails paints.I would suggest lightest to darkest shades.Nails should be free of any nail enamels and dirt.Shape them to your required size with a use of a filer.

Choose the lightest shade as your base coat.The coat needs to be thicker towards your cuticles.For ombre effect, generally white nails polish is used as your base.But you can use any lightest tint from the lot.Let the first coat dry before applying the second one for creating clear canvas for ombre.

Take your triangular makeup sponge and cut into two pieces.Smaller the better as it will be easy to handle on your nails.Its upto you to choose as many shades but three is the perfect number to get the desired effect.Dip the sponge in water before applying any colour and rinse it. It will  prevent the sponge to absorb too much enamel.

Shake the bottles thoroughly.Now start with painting the sponge with the lightest in just a wide line. Take the medium shade and repeat the application on sponge with exactly the same size line.The darkest will be last one.There should not be any space between the three shades.Apply at least three coats of each shade for turning into a wet stamp.

Now with steady hand, stamp the sponge on your nail in one motion.Repeat it twice but the sponge should be stamped on the same place as earlier for preventing any mess up.Always remember the placement of sponge should be upside down so that the darkest shade paints on the outer edges of your nails.

Leave your nails for 10 minutes to dry and then apply the clear top coat.It will instantly mattify your nails and gives a smooth overall finish.

Last step is removing all the extra enamel around fingers and cuticles.Instead of cotton or wipes, use a pencil brush or an earbud.They will help to clean off the nail paint minutely.
