9 Tricks For Salon Finished Nail Paint

We all love to take care of ourselves. We drink green tea for better health; we apply anti-tan for great face and lip balms for soft supple lips. Another thing we love is adding color to our attire by adding colored streaks to our hair, putting on makeup and wearing bright hued lipsticks. We also love to flaunt our perfectly manicured nails with a great nail color.

For those perfect nails we either go for false nails, if our natural nails are not healthy otherwise we love to get pampered and get manicures for those healthy looking nails. There are ways to keep your nails looking absolute best without heading to the salon for the perfectly finished nail paint. All you need are the things that you find at home and your favorite nail paint.

CLEANUP

In order to have flawless nails your hand should be thoroughly cleaned and moisturized.

  • Scrub away any dirt and dry skin
  • Push back the cuticles around the nails
  • Moisturize well to keep your hand soft

SHAPE THEM

Follow the natural shape of your nail and using a nail filler shape your nails. Place the filler between your nail and skin and move in one direction. Once you have shaped your nail use a buffer to give your nail a clean shape

AVOID CHEMICALS

Before you apply new nail paint, it is important to take off the old one. You need to use a non-acetone nail polish remover. Acetone leaves your nail dehydrated and yellow. Take some acetone free nail paint remover and with the help of cotton clean your nail thoroughly.

PROTECT YOUR SKIN FROM ERRANT STOKES

While applying your nail paints always make sure that you protect your finger tips from any smudges or errors. Apply a bit of Vaseline or any cream around your nail so that you can get rid of any errors that you make.

TOP COAT

If you apply just a simple coat of your nail paint then make sure that you use a transparent top coat to seal the nail color. A top coat helps in maintaining the nail color intact for longer. Try to use a quick dry top coat.

ERASE MISTAKES

Your skin around the nails is protected by cream so even if you smudge your nail polish, you can wipe them clean. Even if you make some errors take a small brush and dip it in nail polish remover and carefully remove all the mistakes and smudges around your nail.
