One of the beauties of a professional manicure is that nail technicians know how to flawlessly apply nail polish in a way that it usually stays looking great for about a week, without chipping or peeling. But what if you can’t afford regular manicures or don’t have time to go to the salon? There are a few steps you can take to ensure that a do-it-yourself manicure lasts longer.
1.Slide the nail buffer gently back and forth several times across each nail to even out any ridges.
2.Apply a clear base coat to each nail. Touch the tip of the applicator brush to the bottom middle of the nail (near the cuticle) and drag it to the top. The result will be a strip of color covering approximately 1/3 of the nail.
