Tips to make your nail pol­ish last:

No. 1 Magazine - - HEALTH & BEAUTY -

There are a few tips and tricks that can stretch the wear of your fave nail var­nish just a lit­tle bit longer... 1. Be­fore you ap­ply any var­nish, even if you have noth­ing at all on your nails, use a nail var­nish re­mover as this will re­move any oils or de­bris from the nail bed. 2. Although it’s a pain and adds to your nail var­nish ap­pli­ca­tion time, a base coat re­ally is use­ful if you want your man­i­cure to last. Look for one with nail mois­tur­is­ing prop­er­ties so that at least it’s also help­ing to strengthen them. 3. When it comes to ap­ply­ing your cho­sen colour, re­mem­ber less is more – don’t flood the nail with too much var­nish. Start with one very thin layer, al­low it to dry and then add another thin layer. 4. Just like the base coat, a top coat is some­thing we’re of­ten tempted to skip, but for real longevity – don’t! Ap­ply in two very thin lay­ers, same as you did with your colour, and be pa­tient – give it time to dry com­pletely be­fore you do any­thing with your hands!
