    Apply two thin coats of any of your favorite light colored nail polish to your nail and let them dry completely before moving on.

    Add some rubbing alcohol to a cotton ball or cotton pad and apply it to your painted nails.

    Note: Handle one nail at a time, otherwise, it will create a messy look.

    Pick one of the map cuttings and carefully place it on the specific nail with the printed side down. Now, lightly press it down with a dry cotton pad. Hold it for approximately 15 to 20 seconds and then remove the cotton pad.

    Note: Do not hold the cotton pad very tightly as moving it slightly can destroy the Map Nail Art design.
