6 Tips To Help Your Nails

3 Jun

1)    Cuticle Oil should be used everyday and not only after a manicure. You should also use cuticle oil after washing your hands, this helps to avoid dryness. ( cuticle oil also helps with the drying process of nail polish)

2)    A top coat is not just to be used the day of a new manicure, it should be applied daily to prolong the life of the manicure. If this is a bit much for you try doing this every 3rd day of your manicure. You can also run the top coat ( and nail color) along the edge of the nail  and under the nail the nail tip. (I swear by this. I causes an extra barrier and allows for the edges to chip before the polish that is actually on the surface of your nails. Hence a longer lasting manicure.)

3)  Fast drying nail polishes may seem like a good idea, however because they dry faster they also peel more easily. So I stick with the regular drying polishes and tend to do my nails when i have time to allow a good amount of drying time.

4)    High summer temperatures can cause nail polish to separate and change color. This can also happen when nail polish is stored in hotter places all year round. You must roll the bottle in between your hands to mix the color together as well as storing the polishes in cool places

5) NEVER shake polish bottles, this causes bubbles which will stay if you apply the polish on your nails. Always roll the polish bottle between your hands. It mixes the polishes and keeps the bubbles away.

6)Refrigerating nail polishes is not only good to prevent nail color from  separating and maintaining its color in the summer months, but it is also good to increase the shelf life of your polishes.
