To be attractive, making up your fingernails seems to be serious becides a perfect hairstyle and make up. The basic work is to trim. But also, color must match your dress, hairstyle, the overall look. But no matter how beautiful the style you made, your nail surface get mottled and no longer shiny in few days. Here we invited Jane Park the founder of Julep, to tell us how to keep the effect on nail surface longer.
Indispensable Nutritional base coat
Base coat is very usfull to keep your nails from getting contaminated by nail colors. So use base coat every time you do nail art even when you don't want to clean and polish nail surface. base coat can cover oil on nail surface and make nail color more beautiful and lasts longer.
Forbid any gaps
Jane Park suggests that seal any possible gaps between nail and eponychium. When you paint nails, paint tips first and then the lunula. Don't paint the eponychium or to too far away from eponuchium. Water can enter from the gap.
Don't oven dry
Saperate the five fingers and shake hand. This is a good way to let it dry. Remember, heating cause irregularity.
Please wait 5 minutes patiently untill next step. There will be brush print if it's not dry fully.

Kim Kardashian's boyfriend Reggie Bush recently has been back to his rugby team. In order to express her support to Reggie Bush, Kim Kardashian had her nails covered with shiny gold foils and draw her boyfriend's last name on fingernails. She hope this could bring lucky to her boyfriend.
Graffiti nail art
The unbending graffiti on the nail seems to be drawn by kids. It's really a special way to impress what colors are like in your soul. This might be the most natural way the color is.

This has been a fermenting idea since i was inspired by PSY Gangnam style.
Today I release this nail art tutorial and hope you like it.
Step 1. Clean and trim your fingernails. Apply base coat and let dry. Paint with different nail colors in French style like this.
Step 2. Paint Nude color in such shape:
Step 3. Use pointed brush, make 2 thick dots in position of PSY'd glasses. Use toothpick, expand the thick dots into shape of glasses.
Step 4. That would it be like this when all fingers are done.
Step 5. Paint PSY's mouth with red polish.
Had any body had this mosaic design in nail salon? Maybe your nail artist know how to do this. But I’m here today to teach you how to make this design by yourself just at home!
It’s complicated hon? But it’s actually not! You just need 5 steps, and no need to use water nail decal:
- The first color you will have is white. Paint nails with white polish as usual.
- The second step is to make black grids.
- Fill the cell randomly with different colors: Yellow, pink, orange, purple, blue, green, red. The cell doesn’t need to be filled accurately square, because grids will cover the redundant part in next step.
- Draw the grids again to fix the cell to be square.
- Apply topcoat.

Today I’m going to introduce you guys a nail decal that I love so much.
It has kept on my fingernail for 10 days! It might be the first time that I have a decal on my nail for so long time.
Of course I used OPI top coat. That’s maybe the reason. (I’m not advertising, forgive me, maybe it’s because of the water decal itself).
This design is very simple but makes my nails look pretty nice.

Hi everyone! On the blog I have swatches and a review of this polish by Lumina Lacquer. And because I love it so much I decided to add some freehand abstract designs. I really don’t know what to call this, so apologies for my lame description.
Have you ever imagine nails can be sweet candy so that you can lick it wherever you go.
I did dream about it when I was a child.
Now I can make it a truth.
Believe or not, it’s sweet ! Very sweet!
