    Manicure options

    How to make a stunning manicure "Northern Lights"? Consider two ways.

    Method one

    This method will be able to master even a beginner. To create a stylish manicure will need:

    • basic tool;
    • varnish base (gel polish can be used);
    • mirror rub (it is a kind of mirror sand or the smallest sparkles);
    • brush or sponge;
    • UV lamp;
    • final coating;
    • manicure set.

    2. Next, degrease the nail plate.
    3. Apply a base coat, dry it in an ultraviolet lamp for two minutes.
    4. Proceed to applying the main varnish. It will take two layers, each one is dried, but after the last drying, the sticky layer should remain, it will become the basis for rubbing.
    5. Take a brush, rub in and apply it directly on the adhesive layer. Then literally rub the glitter into the nail plate with your finger or sponge. Dry your nails.
    6. Apply the final coating and fix it with an ultraviolet lamp.

    Tip: if you want the manicure to look like in the photo in fashion magazines, then slightly change the technology described above. So, use metallic lacquer or iridescent with glitter as a base. And rub in not only on the entire nail, but on its individual sections, for example, on the edges or, on the contrary, closer to the base.It is also acceptable to apply strips or arcs, which will create interesting overflows.

    Second way

    Here is what you need:

    • degreaser;
    • basic coverage;
    • tassel;
    • several varnishes of metallic shades (for example, blue, green, yellow);
    • final coating;
    • manicure tools.

    Process description:

    1. First prepare the nails. Do a manicure, removing all unnecessary and giving the plates a shape, as well as aligning them. Then treat the nails with a degreaser to increase adhesion to the varnish.
    2. Apply the base coat, put the nails into the UV lamp for a couple of minutes.
    3. Now apply the background paint. It is advisable to choose the darkest one, since it will simulate the nighttime northern sky. One layer is enough, but it must be sufficiently dense, so in case of spaces it is worthwhile to apply the second layer.
    4. Next, start creating, that is, creating glare of the northern lights. To do this, make chaotic strokes, arched or smooth zigzag lines with different varnishes, applying them with a brush.Until the funds are dry, blur the transitions between tones with a brush.
