Urghhh is there really anything worse than paying $40 for a beautiful manicure and just when you think you are killing it with your fresh AF nails, you look down to see they have been chipped?!!
Don't worry you are definitely not alone as this is a #firstworld problem all women can defs relate too and let's be serious is there really anything less glamorous than chipped nails? Definitely not!
Thanks to the glam online beauty magazine Gritty Pretty, this is how you keep your nails looking gorgeous and extend the life of them for as long as possible.
1. CLEAN YOUR NAILS BEFORE APPLYING POLISH
By cleaning the nail plate with acetone nail polish remover, this removes excess oil and dirt on the nail surface and anchors the polish so it lasts longer.
2. CAP THE ‘FREE EDGE’
The ‘free edge’ is the edge of the nail and it’s where polish usually chips first, so wrap your polish just over your nail and “cap the free edge” to reduce the chance of chipping.
3. REAPPLY TOP COAT DAILY
To preserve the glossiness of your manicure, start by washing your hands with nice, warm soapy water, dry them off and then apply a top coat to prevent chipping. Do this everyday after your manicure for stronger and fresher-looking colour.
Life changed! Flaunt those fabulous hands girls!
