Mastering the Art of Long-Lasting Nail Polish

Mastering the Art of Long-Lasting Nail Polish

There is nothing more frustrating than spending time and effort on a beautiful manicure, only to watch it chip away the next day. But fear not, because we've got the lowdown on how to make that nail polish last longer without any fancy-schmancy tricks. Just a few practical tips to keep your nails looking fresh and fabulous.

1. Clean, Clean, Clean

Start with a clean slate. Wash your hands and wipe your nails with a bit of nail polish remover (psst, we’ve got a nice plant-based one for you!), even if you don't have any old polish on. This little step ensures there's no oily residue or dirt that can mess with the nail polish.

2. Apply a base coat

Don't skip the base coat. It's like a primer for your nails, creating a smooth canvas for your polish to cling to. Plus, it prevents staining, which is always a win. Hint: If you want your polish to be peel-able, try our Peelable Clear Base Coat.

3. Thin is In

Well, not exactly, but thin coats of polish are! Thick layers are more prone to chipping. So go easy, and let each coat dry before adding another. If you’re using one of our nail polishes, it takes about a minute to dry. Remember, patience is key.

4. Seal it with a Top Coat

Seal in your masterpiece with a top coat. It adds an extra layer of protection and shine, and it's like a security blanket for your polish.

5. Replenish Regularly

Nail growth happens, and as it does, that tiny gap between your polish and your cuticle starts showing. Fill it in with a thin line of polish every few days to keep your nails looking fresh.

6. Balm Up

Nail and cuticle oil is your secret weapon. Apply it regularly to keep your nails hydrated and healthy. Healthy nails hold onto polish better. Need a cuticle balm? Try our remover gel with cuticle balm.

7. Be Gentle

Use your nails as tools? It's time to quit that habit. Treat your nails with care. They're not made for opening soda cans or scratching off stickers.

8. Quick Fixes

Carry a small bottle of your nail polish with you. Quick touch-ups can work wonders when you're on the go. 

So there it is, your arsenal of tips for long-lasting nail polish. Keep it simple, stay patient, and give your nails the TLC they deserve. You'll have picture-perfect nails that last, without all the fuss
