The polish tends to chip too quickly and make our beautiful nails look sloppy, much to our dismay. Rather than get discouraged and stop painting your nails, here are 3 tips from Maryton for a trendy and successful manicure.
Take care of your hands and nails
Taking care of your hands and nails is the first rule to follow. Wash your hands regularly with a mild, moisturizing soap, then do the same with the nails, making sure that no impurities are lodged underneath. Then, file your nails to give them the desired shape and harmonize their size. Be aware that it is advisable to file only in one direction, avoiding back and forth movements.
Now it’s time to nourish your cuticles to keep them healthy. For this, treatments exist such as castor, sweet almond or apricot kernel oil. Place a drop on each cuticle and massage until complete penetration of the product. Never cut these small protective skins. However, you can push them back if they are too extensive using a stick specifically designed for this action。
The application of the manicure
To guarantee the long hold of the latter, we advise you to first apply a base. You can now proceed with the varnish application. After choosing the color, apply a first coat of product and let it dry for about 10 minutes. Then apply a second coat for extra hold and vibrant color. Finally, don’t forget to coat your nails with a fixative varnish, or top coat, which will increase the shine, the solidity and thus the hold of your manicure.
What to do in the event of an incident?
An incident occurs such as a broken nail or a manicure that slips away too quickly, don’t panic! We have solutions so you don’t have to start from scratch:
- Nail breakage is tricky because it can hurt if the nail is broken down to the flesh of the finger. To start, cut it clean and file it down. You can then file your other nails, if they are not damaged, in order to make up the difference in length as much as possible. If the nail is not completely broken, you can try to glue it back together with fake nail glue.
- If your varnish is a little chipped in one place, it is not necessary to remove all of your manicure. Try to make a connection by applying a very small amount of nail polish to be diluted gently with the two layers already present on your nail. Proceed little by little and meticulously for a clean and invisible finish.
We hope that these 3 tips for a trendy and successful manicure will have pleased you and that you will be able to put them into practice easily to be beautiful to the tips of your nails. Bring your manicure kit and act now! It doesn’t matter if you don’t have nail tools. We have everything all you need.
