Nail Polish Tips

♥Here are just a few tips that I like to keep in mind when pampering my hands. I hope you find them helpful.♥
*Cut your nails so that they are all about the same length. Then be sure to file them down smoothly.
*Before polishing your nails, soak a cotton ball with nail polish remover and swipe it across your nails. This will remove any excess oils or soap that can cause peeling and chipping once you apply the nail polish.
*Push your cuticles back and trim them. This will make a difference. Your nails will look a lot neater. Be careful doing this though. You can do this with your ordinary nail clipper but it's recommended to use the cuticle trimming tool. Also there's plenty of cuticle softening and removing products available.
*Do not shake the nail polish bottle because that causes air bubbles. Instead, just roll the nail polish bottle between your'll mix just as well.
*Apply thin coats!!...Polish applied heavily will turn out looking tacky :/ If you are using a base coat, just apply a thin coat of that. Then apply the polish. Doing 2 or 3 thin coats will look way better than applying a heavy coat. Allow polish to dry between coats.
*Dip a toothpick in nail polish remover and run it around the edges to correct any mistakes.
*Do not be afraid to use different colors and designs. The possibilities are endless!
*To maintain your manicure from chipping, it is a good idea to apply a top coat every 2-4 days.
*If your nail polish is drying out and becomes thick, add a few drops of nail polish remover into the bottle and mix it.
