How to Care for Hands and Apply Nail Polish for Springtime/Summer Looks
Care for your hands and nails- once a week cut nails if they are getting to long or collecting dirt underneath, short square shaped nails look most natural.Use an emery board if necessary to file off any broken pieces and for daily nourishment, always wash and moisturise with a rich hand cream.
Manicures are when you do the nails on your hands, Pedicures are when you do your feet.Only bother with Pedicures if you are going to maybe be barefoot or feel like it as nail polish on your toes can sometimes be forgotten and chipped nail polish,anywhere, never looks good. You could try having an indulgent manicure once a week. Start by washing and moisturizing hands with soap or cream. Cut nails and file, but be careful not to trim to deep or cut your fingers, as they can feel sore the next day. If you are going to be wearing very dark or bright nail polish, try to use a base coat ( clear nail polish- you can use for top coat if needed too) and leave to dry. Remember to sit still! Now paint on your chosen color (if added) and wait to dry again.
Now you know the basic manicure, here are some classy and casual nail looks, and a few nail art designs which are all relatively easy to achieve.For smudge free nails, sit still for at least 10 minutes and always remove polish with nail varnish remover as soon as the paint starts to chip. -
Sassy at school- Most schools prefer it if you don't wear nail color but clear and sheer shades are normally allowed.Just keep your hands nice if nail polish isn't allowed. Wash, moisturise and trim ( long nails get in the way of your busy day and class schedule) then paint on your nail polish by doing one thick stripe in the middle and two thinner ones at the side. Do one hand, wait to dry than the next. This look is really subtle but still really pretty.
Shades to try- clear,soft sparkly brown, sheer brown or pale pink.
Stepping into spring- bright colors and stand out shades are the way to go for this look!Cutting nails is very important for this as long oval nails can take away the effect and small splashes of color. Use the same nail painting technique as before and leave to dry.
Shades to try- Bright blue, pink and purple,soft coral and rich red.
Cool nail art- Normally you would consider nail art with lots of fussy stickers and jewels but effective art doesn't always mean adding little bits and pieces even though it can look very good.Both of these looks are just paint effects.
Strawberry- paint your nails are dark red shade and leave to dry.Using a green nail polish, do some soft zigzags round the top of nail and leave to dry. Next, very carefully ( maybe using a cotton bud or cuticle stick, depending on the thickness), dot white spots over the red but still so its more of the shade underneath. This is the fruit, the leaves and the seeds. Repeat all.
Stripes- Paint your nails with a clear polish and leave to dry ( so your next shades still have something to cling onto).Take one color and paint one thick stripe through the middle of the nail. Now with two different shades, do two thin stripes down the side. Repeat all.

- Accessorize hands with stacks of bangles and bracelets, but still a contrasting color so it looks organized.
- French manicures may look elegant but they are more time consuming and easy to slip up on, so play safe at first with just a coat of clear polish and move on to more interesting nail looks if preferred.
- You could do your nails while watching TV or with something else which doesn't include moving effort to save time but still get amazing nails.
- Also try nail art with spots, smiley faces or even little stars or hearts. Take your time with these the most.
- Have fun trying out new looks.
- Paint each nail a different color.
- Moving about loads will probably smudge your polish so you'll have to start again. Just be patient when it drys.
