Discover the tips of a specialist to be treated to the tips of your nails.
Do not degrease your nail
To keep your varnish longer, we do not ignore the degreasing of the nail. “If a fatty substance, even invisible, is still on the nail, the varnish will not be able to adhere properly for an ideal outfit,” warns Kartika Luyet.
To do this, nothing could be easier:
put your hands in soap and water just before laying (once the nails have been filed and the cuticles removed).
Mistakes to avoid when applying nail polish
Apply a first coat of thick varnish
Putting the first layer of too thick coming can ruin a manicure. On the contrary, it must be so fine that “its color is always a notch lighter than the final result, or even a little transparent”, specifies Kartika Luyet.
Do not reapply a top coat
The topcoat protects color, boosts shine, and certain formulas, such as that of Dry Finish Kure Bazaar, reduce drying time. Only, if you think about applying it at the end of the manicure, it is rarer to apply a new layer a few days later.
However, by reapplying 2 or 3 days later, you can really extend the hold of the varnish!
