How to make your varnish last?
Have you also ever experienced a crazy amount of time spent on applying your nail polish, but it, after only a few days, begins to flake off? If this is your case, here are some tips to finally know how to make your nail polish last!
Clean your nails well
To prolong the life of the varnish on your nails, you need clean hands beforehand. Degrease the surface of the nail with a little solvent or white vinegar. You can also file lightly the surface of your nails with a nail file so that the varnish sticks better..
Drop a base
The base is a must to extend the life of your varnish. It is applied before the varnish and you need to apply a thin layer. On the side of the nail, it helps it to better grip the color and protects it from pigments.
Strengthen the hold
We use a top coat, the final touch. It is a layer of transparent varnish which allows you to varnish the nail and make it more resistant to shock. It is also recommended to add a new coat every 2 or 3 days to camouflage small imperfections and prolong the varnish.
Avoid hot water
For a varnish to last longer, avoid washing your hands with hot water for 12 hours after application. This will allow it to fully harden. Also, just after laying, run your hands under cold water to shorten the drying time.
Protect your hands with gloves
Finally, for a nail polish that holds really well, you have to protect your hands! So put on your gloves! Especially if you do the dishes and the housework to protect your hands from household products.
