Growing up children, and especially girls, begin to pay close attention to their appearance. They want to look as elegant as adults. Daughters begin to show interest in their mother’s cosmetic bag almost from infancy. What can you do – in women it is probably in the blood. Parents, like no one else, should help the child develop a sense of taste and learn to distinguish true beauty from youth-inspired beauty.
At school, you need to follow certain rules of decency, it is undesirable to wear too short skirts and do flashy makeup and manicures. But this does not mean at all that you need to deny the child the desire to look beautiful. Teach your daughter how to apply light everyday makeup that will highlight her face without making her look vulgar. The same goes for manicure. It’s better to let a child paint her nails with a discreet pastel shade of varnish than she will do it somewhere in the stairwell, and in a much bolder color.
Basic principles of manicure for back to school
Any adult understands that within the walls of the school, the child should first of all look neat and decent. No bold experiments, leave them for the disco.
This approach should be applied not only to clothes, but also to manicure. The accuracy of the nails depends on their length and shape, so the average length of the nails is preferable. As for the shape, it is better to give preference to a rounded one.
You need to paint your nails in soft pastel colors, it is better to give preference to pink, peach and beige. It is desirable that the varnish is matte and does not contain all sorts of sparkles.
Another rule of school manicure is that it must take into account the age of its owner. Bright and overly voluminous drawings will be out of place. Ambiguous images should also be avoided.
Teach your daughter to stick to a certain style. Everyone knows that teenagers prefer everything flashy and extravagant, which sometimes looks completely tasteless. You need to be able to explain to the child that you can distinguish yourself not only with aggressive colors, but also with classic elegance. Long nails of bright red color are for a disco, and at school you need to be a lady to the tips of your nails.
Summing up, we can recommend the classics of French manicure to teenagers. We have said more than once that he is always in trend. The first time you can spend money on the salon, and later your child will be able to do it on their own or with your help.
Step by step manicure for school
As always, the first stage is preparatory. We teach our daughter to make firming baths with sea salt or various herbal decoctions. After the water procedure, dry your hands with a towel.
If the cuticle has grown slightly, it is better not to touch it at all, otherwise an infection can be introduced. In the event that the skin has grown significantly and the nails look messy, teach your child the basics of European manicure. Get your child her personal manicure products, including cuticle remover.
Degrease the nails with nail polish remover and cover the free edge of each nail with white polish. After it dries, we take a white transparent or translucent varnish and cover the entire surface of the nail plate with it. We cover the nails with a special fixative and dry well.
You have received a classic French manicure. If your child wants something more, let them put small drawings or use special stickers.
It is advisable not to play with nail design too often. You will carry out any experiments with appearance later. In the meantime, a restrained style will suit the child more.
