Professional Tips for Nail Posishing
1, Before applying nail polish, wipe nails with polish remover to clear any oil. Apply a base and top coat. A base coat aids in the retention of the colour on the nail while the top coat shields the enamel.
2, Applying a top coat every day could prolong the life of your manicure as well as of your nail colour.
3, Apply two or three thin coats of polish. A thick coat could chip and flake off quickly. Nail polish could be made thinner by adding a few drops of remover to the bottle. The first coat always looks patchy - the second intensifies the colour and covers any irregularities.
4,While applying nail polish, leave a hairline gap between the colour and the cuticle. This makes nails appear longer and prevents the colour from bleeding into the nail base.
5, Leave old polish on when filing nails to prevent breakage.
6, Keep nails fairly short when wearing strong shades of nail colour and a little longer for lighter shades.
7, For a short, squarish shape, file nail straight across the top of the nail and carefully round off edges.
