Apply base coat

Now that you’ve chosen the perfect tapered square nail shape, it’s time to make sure your nails are in perfect condition. To do this, apply one or two coats of base coat before painting your nails with tapered square nail polish. The base coat will keep the color from staining and protect your natural nails. Once again, use a brush to apply a thin layer of the polish over each finger—don’t be afraid to go back over any spots where there may have been some missed spots!

Apply tapered square nails tips

  • Use nail glue to secure the tips
  • Cut tips to fit the shape of your nails
  • File and buff the edges of the tips to match the shape of your nails
  • Use a brush to apply a thin layer of glue on the nail tip

Blend white and beige color to create polish for the nail bed

Next, you’ll want to apply the polish to the nail bed. This can be done with a sponge or brush, depending on which tool is more comfortable for you and your client. Remember that the most important thing is to make sure that the polish is applied smoothly and evenly across all four corners of the nail bed. If it is too thick in any one area, then it will not adhere properly and will chip off within days of application.

Use a dotting tool to add polka dots of different sizes

  • Use a dotting tool to create polka dots of different sizes.
  • Use white nail polish for this step, as opposed to the red or yellow that you used earlier.

Add 3D details

To create the “3D” effect on your nails, you’ll need to use a dotting tool. This is a small tool with a round top that can be used to pick up nail polish and place it at the tip of your nail. You can purchase one in most beauty supply stores or online. To create the tapered square look, use three different shades of pink: hot pink, baby pink and white (or mint green).

Start by painting all 10 nails with hot pink polish. While that dries, pick up some baby pink from the bottle with your dotting tool and place four dots around each nail starting from one side going clockwise around until you reach the other side of each nail (like how a clock works!). Once those dots are dry add two more small dots above them so they look like little crowns! When all 10 nails have been done with their crowns go back over them again with white/mint green paint so there aren’t any brush strokes showing through when they’re dry!

Ring finger with designs

There are many reasons why you should consider getting your nails done. The most obvious reason is for practical purposes, such as being able to pick up objects and manipulate them more easily. If you’re like most people, however, then this may not be enough to convince you—you want more out of your manicure than just the ability to type and open jars of mayonnaise!

You have a lot of options when it comes to picking out a design: simple or complex designs; designs that match an outfit or mood; fashion statements that express yourself in unique ways. You can even get creative with colors! Whatever design you choose will depend on what kind of person you are and how much time/money/effort (or all three) that type of nail applies takes up in your life

Add some bling

You can make it even more interesting by adding small rhinestones around the cuticle, near the nail tip and at the end of your nail. If you’re feeling extra fancy, try adding a single rhinestone on ring finger in either white or gold.

You don’t have to go overboard with bling as this design is already quite flashy. However, if you plan on wearing them for more than just one night out then add some bling to keep things interesting!

That’s the end, keep calm and do your nails!
