So here’s an article on how to apply artificial nails; removal of these nails will be done in the next post.

Basic rules for artificial nails application (These are the fundamental rules for applying all types of artificial nails):

• The amateur ladies must buy a artificial nail kit, initially. This includes, dupe nails, glue, an emery board, along with a cuticle stick.
• First and foremost, wash your hands and clean your nails before applying the dupe ones.
• You can make use of a nail brush to ensure that the nails are clean.
• Remove all the nail paint and lotion or creams applied on them, and ensure that they are pat dry.
• File your nails, at the tops and tips for a smooth surface.
• Remove the cuticles, use acetone to do so.
• Cut, Clip and file your nails.
• Buff your nails, since this will enable your artificial nails to sit on your plate properly.
• Make sure the dupe nails are not overlapping your natural ones.
• Have a coat of ridgefiller, this will protect your natural nail.
• Apply the thumbnail first.

• Now have the third layer of gel and let it dry under the light.
