Italian manicure: Advice from an expert

This method of applying nail polish is what really sets the Italian manicure apart. To achieve a square nail shape, you should file each side of your nails with a nail drill before focusing on nail length.

For varnish, although it is not obligatory to apply a base, it is advisable to do so if your nails are streaked or if you are using a bright color. It is then advisable to add one or two coats of varnish and protect the nail with a top coat.

Unlike the Russian manicure which files the cuticles, the Italian manicure opts for a different approach: we carefully work the cuticles and push them back slightly to enlarge the surface of the nail, thus allowing for better visual elongation.
