Do You Like to paint your toenails.
The Way to Paint Toenails.
Painting toenails is fun and exciting but there is correct procedure to follow to achieve the best results.
Step 1. The best time to paint your toenails is after a shower or bath or you can soak you feet for 10 mins to prepare them for a manicure.
Step 2. Cut your nails straight across and file away the rough edges.
Step 3. Clean your toenails with a nail polish remover to remove any old nail polish or dirt. Add toe separators if you wish before applying nail polish.
Step 4. Add a clear base coat to your toenails.This protects the nails from the harsh chemicals of constant use of nail polish and like in any painting gives you a smooth surface to work on.
Step 5. Add first coat of the colour of your choice,wait until dry and repeat the process.
Step 6. Once your toenails are dry,finish with a top coat of clear nail polish to add extra gloss and to protect the actual nail polish.
This step is entirely up to you as you might not want this extra gloss finish.
Painted red toenails look hot, sexy and sassy.
Painting Those Toenails Red
Painting Toenails Goes Way Back!
Painting nails and toenails goes all the way back to Ancient Egyptian Culture. In those days they use a reddish-brown stain from henna which they used to color their nails and finger tips.
Within Egyptian culture, the depth of colour used signified the social order you were in.
The Queens that ruled, wore dark red,and it is know that Queen Nefertiti coloured her nails and toenails in ruby-red whereas Cleopatra favored Crimson.
The lower the social order the lighter the color.Women of a lower class were only allowed to color their nails a pale color, if at all.
