The ultimate finishing touch to your look is your Nail polish! It makes you look more put together and polished. Isn’t it frustrating when your nail polish gets chipped within 2-3 days of application? The best thing about beauty problems is that they’re pretty much always solvable. I’ll list some tried and tested ways to make your manicure last longer.
No more chipped polish ruining your mani!
*Always shape cut, shape and file your nails first when its dry.
*There should not be any product residue on your nails before nail polish application. Eg. Creams
*Your nails should be completely dry before applying nail polish
*Always start with a base coat first and let it dry completely.
*Next, apply the first coat of your favourite nail polish and let it dry. Then, apply the second coat and let it dry completely. The second coat delivers the true color and coverage.
*Apply your top coat and let it dry for atleast 2 minutes. I prefer a gel topcoat as it gives long-lasting gloss minus the time-consuming removal process of a salon gel manicure.
*The most important step after applying your top coat is dipping your fingers in icy cold water for a few minutes.
This is what makes them last really long. It doesn’t dry nails faster, but it helps to harden the polish.
Lastly, don’t forget to wear gloves while washing dishes and avoid getting any kind of heat on your nails especially while cooking as it chips the tip.
