The hybrid manicure is still very fashionable. Some women prefer longer nails, nevertheless the short ones can also adorn the hands. Such nails are simply more practical in everyday life. Both nude colors and visible ones, such as black or red, are ideal on them. In order to make the nails look healthy and neat, it is necessary to start with preparing the nail plate carefully and thoroughly, as well as applying each product evenly.
I presenty my work scheme with short nails below.
How to perform hybrid stylization step by step?
Note: In case of the short nail plate, the appropriate shape will be an oval or square. Any other shape is not recommended, because "short but pointed nails" effect is undesirable here. It is equally important to pay attention to the side lines of the nail, because they should be at one even level on both sides.
7.Apply a thin layer of base coat on the prepared nail (its purpose is to create good adhesion to the nail plate) and cure in a lamp according to the manufacturer's recommendations. After curing, wipe the inhibition (sticky) layer.
Warning: Do not cure the product on the skin. If you happen to stain your fingertip with the gel polish, remove the product with a stick or pusher. Only after correction cure the base coat.
At this point, you can not forget to seal the free edge of the nail. I do this with every product I apply (base, color and top). In case of short nails, you should pay special attention to this! Although you may find opinion that this practice has gone out of fashion, I have a different opinion. I believe that if something works, there is no need to stop doing it.
8.On the previously cured layer of base coat, apply the second layer (do this activity on one nail, so that the base coat does not flow onto the cuticles). This layer is necessary to level and overbuild the nail plate. Then apply the base coat to the next nails and cure in the lamp one by one, according to the manufacturer's recommendations. Do not wipe off the inhibition layer.
Note: Do not wipe the top immediately after taking it out of the lamp, as there is a risk of becoming dull! It must cool down before using the cleaner. A top coat without the inhibition layer does not need to be wiped off, but wait a while before applying a cuticle oil. Doing it too quickly may dull the top coat. Before applying the oil, it is a good idea to check the sides of the nail near the lateral folds. If any unevenness has appeared at the cuticle area after the top has cured, you can gently file them out with a nail file.
