Fashion Quarterly - - Beauty -

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.

Stained Nails?

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.”

Split Nails?

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.”

Re­duce the fre­quency of chip­ping by wear­ing gloves when do­ing chores and avoid us­ing your nails as tools. Ap­ply the essie Gel Set­ter to add longevity to your nails. “This is eas­ily my favourite top coat of all time.”
