How to make black tip nails: step-by-step instruction

If you’re interested in trying out this trend, read on for our professional tips and step-by-step instructions.

Step One: Choose Your Nail Shape

The first step in creating black tip nails is choosing your nails’ shape. We recommend starting with a classic round or square shape if you’re unsure what form to choose. Once you’ve selected the shape of your nails, it’s time to move on to step two!

Step Two: Prep Your Nails

Before you can start painting your nails, you’ll need to prep them first. This includes removing old polish, cleaning your nails, and trimming/filing them into the desired shape. Once your nails are prepped and ready to go, you can move on to step three!

Step Three: Apply Base Coat

After your nails are prepped, the next step is to apply a base coat. This will help protect your nails from the color polish and ensure that your manicure lasts longer. Once you’ve used a base coat, you can move on to step four!

Step Four: Paint Your Nails

Now it’s time to start painting your nails! We recommend starting with the color polish of your choice. Once you’ve applied the color polish, you can move on to painting the black tips. You can move on to step five once you’re finished painting the black tips! We recommend using a small brush or nail art pen to get a clean and polished look.

Step Five: Apply Top Coat

The final step is to apply a top coat. This will help seal your manicure and give it a nice glossy finish. And that’s it! You’ve now created beautiful black tip nails!
