Louboutin Mani: Painting Under The Nail Tutorial

 You can see Robin Moses video on this type of mani here or I have a picture tutorial with a leopard print. Sorry these are on fake nails, I thought with a longer free edge it would be easier to explain. 
 This design is super easy, I like to polish the top of my nails first. You can do it either way but polishing under last is just easier for me. After that is completely dry I prep the underside and apply a base coat followed by two coats of color.

 I like to use a small flat brush to apply the polish under the nail that way I can get very close to the hyponicium.

 When your base color is dry you can stop there, use a top coat to seal everything but I went a step further and did a simple leopard print. 

 Once everything is dry apply top coat to the top of the nail, underneath and all free edges to make your manicure last as long as possible.
 Will any of you be trying this out? 


  1. Me! Definitely! Well, as soon as there is a free edge to paint on ^^;
