Cut off your hangnails

The only reason to reach for your cuticle nipper is to clip your hangnails.

Do not shake the nail polish bottle

Instead of shaking the nail polish bottle, hold it vertically and roll it back and forth between your hands. This will prevent air bubbles from forming when applying the paint.

You only need three strokes with the brush

Before you start covering your nails with polish, remember that it only takes three strokes of the brush to cover one nail. Starting at the base of your nail, sweep the brush down the middle, then left and right from top to bottom, and voilà!

Apply the nail polish correctly!

Always use a base coat

It may take a little longer, but the base coat will help the nail polish stick more easily, so your manicure will last a few days longer. It also prevents stains on your nails.

Please do not forget the base coat

Avoid quick-drying nail polish

Even though a quick drying nail polish might seem like the right move, remember that nail polishes that dry quickly are usually loaded with harsh ingredients. Because of this, they can weaken your nails. So be patient and wait until the nail polish is completely dry.

The fast drying products are not good for your nails

Nail polish dries faster in cold water

It sounds a bit strange, but if you run your hands under cold water or dip your fingertips in ice water for a minute or two, your nail polish will dry noticeably faster. So fill a small bowl with cold water and relax.

Use cuticle oil

An easy way to make your fingernails look like they just got out of the nail salon is to use cuticle oil. Apply the oil to your nails after painting. If you accidentally hit something, the oil will slide off a little, so there is less damage to the nail polish.

Store your nail polish properly

Keeping your nail polish refrigerated will keep it longer because heat and direct sunlight could change its texture and color.

Save old nail polish

You know that thick and greasy nail polish that sits in your bathroom cabinet? In fact, he can be saved. You can buy nail polish thinner at your local beauty salon. Just add a few drops to any nail polish that is too thick.
