What To Put Around Nails When Painting?

Written by Tara

You just need one little thing for a mess-free mani. This Is the Secret to Not Getting Polish on Your Skin

  1. Apply Vaseline. Take a baby Q-tip and rub it around your surrounding skin and cuticles before you apply polish, says Alexaundra McCormick of Honey Artists.
  2. Paint on your polish.
  3. Wipe off any excess.

First, use a cotton swab to rub petroleum jelly (like Vaseline) on your cuticles and the skin around your nails to create a barrier between the polish and your skin. After you’ve painted your nails, you can wipe off the petroleum jelly and any polish mistakes along with it.

Generally What to Do If nail polish gets on skin? Dampen a cotton ball with some non-acetone nail polish remover and rub the affected area until the polish comes off. Rinse the area with some soap and warm water. Non-acetone nail polish remover is gentler than regular nail polish remover, but it may still leave the skin feeling dry.

How far away from the cuticle should polish be applied?

Apply the side of the brush with the polish on, to the centre of your nail, about 1-2mm away from the skin at the base of the nail. Apply a small amount of pressure to spread the brush over the nail then push the brush gently towards the cuticle/eponychium area leaving a tiny gap between the polish and your skin.
