Nail art from a polish-holic currently living in Korea.
Unless otherwise stated, all nails are done by me.
For your first coat of polish, try and put on a thin coat, keeping really mindful of following just above the curve of the skin below your nail. The thinner it is, the less is there to pool. It unfortunately ends up being practice that’ll keep it neat, sadly. I also *cough* liberated a whole bunch the little wooden skewers from the food stalls near my apartment in Korea, so if there is any that goes over or isn’t need, I’ll use it to pull the excess polish off. You can also get a small paint brush with some remover on it and carefully sweep it along the cuticles to remove it as well but I find it doesn’t quite get everything off and I end up swiping into the polish I don’t want to take off!
I hope that helps!
