Nail your nails
Achieve the perfect manicure
Start with a clean nail, then choose the essie basecoat that suits your nail type. These prevent dark polishes from staining the nail and can help fortify nails. Apply two coats of essie polish, waiting two minutes in between coats to allow it to dry. Finish with the essie top coat of your choice.
When using dark or bright polishes, always use a base coat, like the essie All In One to protect nails. “This do-it-all product is perfect for the girl who doesn’t want to fuss with too many bottles of polish.”
Massage your cuticles and skin around the nail with the essie Apricot Cuticle Oil. Gently brush off any excess oil with a soft, moist towel and trim any loose dead skin. “This product is perfect for any modern girl. In fact, it’s so good I have two bottles of it.”
