Learn how to give a professional spa manicure in this free online instructional video series, including tips for applying nail polish.
In this segment I'll be showing you how to apply polish. You'll want to take your brush and wipe it on the outside back into the polish so that you don't have excess product. Doing it this way also helps so that it doesn't get around the bottle and get all over and then close your polish bottle. You'll want to start at the top, one stroke down the middle, one stroke to the side and another stroke to the side. Don't worry if there's spots that you miss, because you'll get those when you do the second coat. You always want to do two coats of polish, doing two coats of polish ensures that you're going to get the right color that you're suppose to and the right consistency. Be sure to watch our next segment on how to apply top coat.
