1.Step 1: Cleaning of nails:
Using your polish remover, get rid of any excess polish, residue and any oils. You can as well file them into the shape you desire.
2.Step 2: Application of base coat:
Applying a base coat is a crucial step because you want to give the nail wraps something to cling to. Besides, it protects your nails that will be painted with lacquer. Thus, if you are using a bright colour like yellow, you want to protect your nails from discolouration.
3.Step 3: Application of a bright colour on alternating nails:
At this stage, you need to apply a bright colour on alternating nails. This manicure looks great with bright colours against the Ankara print.
4.Step 4: Nail wrap application:
Here, you have to strictly follow the instructions on the package of the nail wraps to find the correct wrap for your finger size. Then apply slowly, smoothing them out as you press down to avoid air bubbles. File off the excess and apply topcoat to all nails to finish the look!
Really, this Ankara manicure is super simple and easy. It looks fantastic. Give this a try!
