After preparing your nails with different accessories and manicure sets, you can start applying the semi-permanent varnish. Today, this article will tell you how to apply semi-permanent varnish at home.
Here are the different steps to follow:

After choosing a color, apply a thin layer of semi-permanent varnish to your nails, taking care not to touch the cuticles. Let your hand cure under the UV/LED lamp for 60-120 seconds, then apply the second coat and finish with a pass under the lamp.
