Haven't you ever wondered how to properly paint nails? If you learned, you would probably save a lot of money and wouldn't have to rely on your manicurist week after week. Not to mention, you could say bye forever to smudges, streakiness and chips.

NYC's most beloved nail artist Madeline Poole teamed up with the blog Refinery29 to show you the easy steps to perfecting your polish techniques in this infographic. The chart simply suggests an 11-step method to achieve salon-like results.

Poole claims the method she uses "is a quick way to evenly cover the surface and avoid drying out the brush." Prepping and priming are the most important parts, following by the one-dip method. When painting each nail, there should be no need to "double-dip."
