Perfect nails, we all dream of them. But difficult to achieve this if you are not a fan of nail salons. So when the time comes to put on your nail polish, a small problem always comes to confront us. Broken nail, damaged or chipped nail polish… Not easy indeed! Today, I’m giving you 7 tips that will help you get perfect nails!
1. File your nails properly
To begin, you will need to arm yourself with your nail file, in order to take care of the shape of your nails. But only one tip: always file in the same direction.
2. Fix broken nails
All you need is a tea bag, a pair of scissors, a small wooden stick and finally a transparent varnish.
3. Push back the cuticles
Pushing back your cuticles will release the nail, you will obtain a perfect shape and will ensure a clean and neat nail polish. To do this, you just need to prepare a small bowl with lukewarm water to soften the skins.
4. Use a base
It is time to apply a base coat which will have the advantage of reducing any small streaks and which will protect your nails. For application, one coat is sufficient.
5. Apply your nail polish
The first layer allows you to outline the area of the varnish. The second layer will make the color of your nail polish more intense and more opaque.
6. Apply a top coat
Apply a top coat on your completely dry nails. This will ensure a nice shine, but also a longer hold of the varnish.
Patience must be the key word. Don’t think of anything, don’t touch anything and wait. There is a solution to speed up the process: immerse your nails in cold water.
In addition to these mentioned above, maybe you will need other manicure supplies to care for your nails. If you don’t have, check out our Maryton website, where there are all kinds of toenail products.
