Tips To Get Your Manicure To Last

#1. Apply vinegar to your nails before you paint them.

Applying vinegar to your nails is one way to get all of the build-up and dirt cleared away from your nails. This will give you a fresh and clean nail to paint, and it will remove any oil from your nails that may create a barrier between your nails and your nail polish.

#2. Your nails should be shaped to match your cuticles.

Some people like to round their nails, some like to make them square, but you should actually shape your nails to match the shape of your cuticles. This makes your nails less likely to break, and they will be easier to file.

#3. Avoid getting nail polish on your cuticles.

When you get nail polish on your cuticles, it will lift the paint from your nail, and it will make it easier for the paint to chip. Before you paint your nails, make sure that you use a cuticle pusher tool to remove your cuticles from your nail.

#4. The tip of your nails should get two coats of basecoat.

The tip of your nails are most likely to chip before anything else. When you apply two coats of basecoat to your fingernail tips, you will add an extra layer of protection so that your nails are less likely to chip from texting, typing, and picking things up.

#5. Before use, roll your nail polish in your hands.

Most people like to shake their nail polish before they use it. However, that can actually create air bubbles in your nail polish. If you use nail polish that has air bubbles in it, you are more likely to end up with chipped nail polish.

#6. Always paint the edge of your nails.

We know it can be tempting to want to avoid painting the edge of your nails, but this will create space on your nails that allow for chips. You should always apply the basecoat, nail polish, and topcoat to your entire nail.
