Nails Inc Paint Can Spray Can Nail Polish

Paint Can Nails Inc. step by step guide at karengnails.com @karengnails

 

I’m excited to share with you all the latest product from Nails Inc London Paint Can Spray Can Nail Polish! I was immediately intrigued by the product and couldn’t wait to try it.The color I tested was Mayfair Lane which is a light pink almost white with a hint of shimmer.

I followed their step by step guide and directions. I noticed the spray can nail polish dried fast and had full coverage with just the first spray. However, I tend to like my nails more opaque so I sprayed a second coat. It was really the perfect polish application. The polish I sprayed on my fingers washed off pretty quick and easy. Be careful when applying the base coat. I wasn’t too careful when I applied the base coat to my nails and accidentally got some on my cuticles. So, I had to clean up around my cuticles.

I decided to include my own step by step guide below with their directions along with my images. I hope the guide below makes it easy for you to achieve the perfect polish application using Nails Inc Paint Can Spray Can Nail Polish.

Art Deco Nails

Art Deco Nail Art karengnails.com

I was inspired by art deco when I first created this nail look last year. I loved it so much and promised many of you to do a quick tutorial and show you exactly how I did it. The steps are easy and these art deco nails can easily be done! I will admit my biggest nemesis when it comes to nails is the amount of time it takes for nail polish to dry. I’m trying to learn to be more patient and accept the fact that I need to let my nails dry in between each step…it’s not easy but it can be done! My solution is watching my favorite YouTube beauty gurus in between each step for these art deco nails 🙂 Remember this art deco nails design can be done in any color combination you like so…get creative!

The formula is set to deliver protective benefits that will strengthen nails and improve the quality of nails over time and selected pigments that offer an even application for a more dramatic lacquered look.
The most important step in any manicure is the Top Coat! Chanel has a new LE GEL COAT Longwear Top Coat that extends the wear of LE VERNIS for up to 7 days and will provide a glossy, gel-like finish!
