You are a busy lady.

Between work, your personal hobbies, relationships, and goals, at some point you will find yourself needing to paint your own nails until you can get to your manicurist.

… And you’ll paint your hand that you use all the time just fine. It’s the other hand that always ends up looking like a 5 year old assisted you.

But no need to fret; use your nondominant hand and get an even-looking polish application.

Adrienne Blanks, founder of D.I.D. Nails, helped us here at Hello Beautiful to reach nail perfection in five easy steps:

  1. Make sure your nails are manicured. Nails that are even and less ragged will look more kempt.
  2. Start with a base coat. We suggest using Start by D.I.D. Nails.
  3. “The key to an even manicure is three strokes. One going down the middle of the nail bed, one going down the right side and one going down the left side. This equals one coat.” – Adrienne
  4. Repeat step three again.
  5. Add your top coat. On HELLO Live! we used the quick dry, top coat, Finish! by D.I.D. Nails.
