Step by step
/ Start - Svampning
Have everything you need ready before you start polishing your nails. Read right through the instructions before you begin applying polish. Remember to protect the surface you are working on, in case you spill any nail polish.
Begin with a manicure: file and shape your nails and clean them with Depend blue nail polish remover before you apply polish.

Pick up plenty of polish on the brush and spread the two colours (the picture shows Minilac no. 031 and no. 041) on the plastic film. Carefully dip the sponge in both colours.
Press the sponge onto your nails. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you get the effect you want. However, wait until the polish is dry between repetitions, so that you don’t smudge the polish.
