Nail polish brings out the artist in everyone, and I think a bold nail polish is a perfect (and budget-friendly) spring accessory! To pull off the trend all you need is some nail-spiration and a few pointers.
1. Get some inspiration
Pinterest and Instagram have a ton of images nail polish images from perfectly painted solids to elaborate DIY nails. One of my favorite nail art instagramers is @sfpartynails, a San Francisco-based nail artist who hosts pop-up polish parties!

2. Don’t be a hoarder
Once opened the quality of the polish will diminish after 2-3 years so don’t forget to replace old bottles. (Click here to find out the proper way to dispose of old nail polish)
3. Buy a buffer
Do yourself a favor and start your spring mani with a clean even canvas. Base coats will also help to prime your nails before you lay down your color.
4. Get comfortable
Sit at a table and try resting your painting hand on a higher surface like a book so that you hand remains steady.
5. Choose quality
Highly pigmented polishes work best for making designs or patterns because fewer coats are needed to show the color contrast. Butter London is a perfect example of a highly pigmented opaque polish brand.
This way, you’ll be able to clean up any mistakes/remove excess polish from the skin around your nails quickly and easily.
