All women enjoy having beautiful nails. Going to a salon can get a little bit expensive. Airbrushing nails on your own can save you money.

    Things You’ll Need to airbrush nails on your own

First of all you’ll need acetone and a nail stencil. You will also need some nail polish (you will need minimum 2 different colors), an Airbrush gun will be very useful and a topcoat nail varnish to finish.

    How it is done

If you don’t have yet a nail stencil you can buy from a supply store. This kind of stores have lots of stencils. If you are wondering what kind of nail stencil to buy we recommend you purchase a simple but very efficient design such as a plain line when you first airbrush nails.

You may use polish remover – acetone and gently wash your hands before starting the procedure – that eliminate any kind of oil or old polish from your nails because if your nails aren’t perfect clean the the airbrush design will not last so long as you wish.

You must apply a basecoat to your nails. When this basecoat is perfect dry you can apply which color do you want or have for coloring the nails – this color will be the background color.

Now position the stencil on top of your nail in the position you want to make the design. After this you will may use an airbrush gun to paint over the stencil with the color you’ve chosen for your design. For the last touch you can remove with acetone any over spray near your design.

You can brush on a long-lasting topcoat and let your nails dry and remember to let them dry without touching anything; of course if you have a professional nail dryer you can use it.

After all this steps are done you can declare yourself a little specialist and in the future you can use and experiment with more elaborate stencils.

If you are a little scared to start doing this procedure on your own you can buy from a store synthetic hands or even fingers to experiment on them before starting to airbrush your real nails.
