How to Paint your Nails like a Pro! – Video Tutorial

Good evening, all! A main issue for people who do their nails at home, or budding nail artists is that they struggle with a good way to paint their nails. So, I want to give you a hand (or nail, LOL) with this video tutorial on how to paint your nails like a pro! With this video and some practice, you’ll be painting your nails perfectly in no time!

In this video, so that you can see the techniques and observe them, I didn’t speed up the video segments at all, making the video just a tad longer than usual. Today, I’ve got a polishes/tools list and the video tutorial. Enjoy!


Polishes/Tools used in this design:

Formula X, The System: Primer (basecoat)

wet n wild: Who is Ultra Violet? (bright purple)

Serendipity: Finishing Touch Topcoat *Unavailable on


Pretty easy, right? Don’t worry; it does take lots of practice and lots of manis to get into an easy habit of painting your nails like a pro all the time. You’ll get there! 🙂 Good luck!

Also, the design in the end of the video is the new design I created today. It features colors and designs from my site, including my logo and some nail polish splashes to match my homepage. This mani is now my account picture on Instagram! Speaking of, don’t forget to follow @threesixtynails on Instagram and tag #threesixtynails with your manis.

Don’t forget to check Nail Buzz for nail news, head to the Nail Shop to do some shopping, and check the rest of the sight. See you Friday for Products of the Week!
