Tips on keeping Fabulous Nails

• Nails need sun protection too so use a topcoat enriched with UV filters. This also helps to protect the nail polish from discolouration.

• If you have very brittle nails, try painting your base coat and nail polish under the tip of your nails to add extra strength.

• If you have uneven ridges in your nails, avoid pearly or frosted polished as they highlight imperfections.

• Wet nails can be dried quickly by plunging them into ice-cold water!

• To make nail polish last longer, store it in the fridge. To ensure an even consistency, never shake a bottle of nail polish, instead, turn it upside down once and then roll it between your palms.

• If your planning on doing messy work, drag your nails over a bar of soap first. The undersides of your nails will fill up with soap preventing them from filling with dirt later on!

• Invest in speciality products such as ridge fillers, base coat and topcoat as they have different purposes. Basecoat feels sticky once applied to act as a fixative for nail enamel. It also prevents staining. The topcoat dries hard, locking in the colour to give the surface a hard, protective barrier.

• Clean ink and stains from the nails using a toothbrush and whitening toothpaste. Or dissolve a couple of denture cleaning tablets in water and gently use it to scrub your nails clean.

• Only use gentle Emery board to file - always avoid metal files.

• Never file your nails straight after a bath or hot shower, as this is when they are at their weakest and therefore most likely to split.

• To clean up any smudges of nail polish, use and old, clean lip brush dipped in nail polish remover.

•. Go to a certified nail technician for nail extensions and repairs - it is very easy to damage the nail bed if you are not an expert.

• To avoid peeling of polish, apply just a single coat of ridge-filler, and wait until it’s completely dry before applying the regular polish in two thin coats (this gives better coverage, dries faster and lasts longer).
