Do you want to learn how to paint your nails? Just look at this inscrutable to learn how! Before starting read ALL of the steps! When I was younger I didn't know about some of the steps like putting on a clear coat and how much color and how to put it on.

Step 1: Gather All the Materials

The most important materials are: Nail polish color, clear seal nail polish, cotton balls, nail polish remover, and paper towels. If you have longs nails you might need: Nail clippers and a nail file

Step 2: Wash Your Hands

Step 7: Put on the Clear Nail Polish

This brand calls it the base and top coat. This step show how to put on the base coat. First, slide it down the middle of your fingernail, then the left side, and finally the right. If you do it this way it's easier to keep it all even. Remember to only put a little bit of nail polish on- at least not a lot of it. It should have enough to make one layer, but it shouldn't have so much that the nail polish drips off the brush.Let it dry for 3-5 minutes.

Step 8: If You Messed Up:

If you don't like the way it looks just use nail polish remover. The last picture shows you if nail polish is on the end of nail you can press it against a paper towel to get it off. Also, don't put nail polish remover on skin that has cuts. The last picture on this step shows when I put the remover on it it stung and as you can see my finger turned red. This happened because I had a cut there and I didn't even notice, ouch!

Step 9: Add Nail Polish Color

Step 10: Put on the Clear Nail Polish
