Today I made a little tutorial on how to clean up around your nails.
Let's get started!
- Nail polish
- Acetone or nail polish remover
- An angled nail art brush
Start off by applying any nail polish you adore. Here I used the black Essie Licorice.
As you can see in the picture there is some nail polish outside of the nail, which makes it look messy.
Use an angled nail art brush dipped in acetone or nail polish remover to remove the residue nail polish around the nail by swiping the brush along the curve and sides of the nail as seen in the picture.
This clean-up technique is really easy and it makes your manicure look like it is done by a professional!
The brush I used for this clean-up tutorial is from Born Pretty Store. It comes in a set of 15 brushes (#8793 in the color Light Green) with brushes in different shapes and sizes for both nail art and clean-up purposes.
I really like this set as it has brushes for everything (striping, detailing, clean-up, the dry brush technique etc.), they are of great quality, they look really pretty with the green handles and they are really cheap (only 8.02$!).
