Nail color and polish is one way that you can play with your fashion profile by changing your overall look and make a statement about who you are. Choosing the right color can bode very well for you, and correspondingly, choosing the wrong color will sink your 'class level' quicker than you can drop a glove. By purchasing long-lasting brands of nail polish and employing a few little-known beauty tricks, you can have nails to die for that won't kill your budget. Make your homemade manicure last as longer, if not longer, than those who can afford the maintenance.
When choosing a polish, not only is the color important, but what you use as a base and top coat as well. In fact the base coat and top coat can make a huge difference. When I do a client with natural nails, if they are not on a program (like nailtiques or develop ten) I almost always use a bonder. It helps the polish stay better and is thin so it doesn't add much to the overall thickness. If you are having a hard time getting polish to adhere to the nail properly try a bonder base coat first.
Hang your nails out to dry In order to prevent chipping and to keep your nail polish from slipping away, your nail polish must be completely dry! This is why I may wait up until an hour to apply a clear coat of nail polish. If you can't wait an hour, you can skip this step if you are doing your toes. The advice I have already given you will make your nails shiny. Let your nails dry, and then apply a clear coat. For extra coverage, purchase an anti-chipping nail polish, such as one by Sally Hansen.
Another nail art technique that is becoming very common is the Konad system, a system of tools which allows you to make rapid patterns on your client's nails. This procedure is made possible using cutting edge twenty-first century applied science.
The vital piece of the Konad stamping system is a special image plate etched with an assortment of handsome shapes. When using the system, the artist brushes on a special Konad coloured nail polish to the plate and then transports the resulting pattern onto the client's nails with an original konad stamping .
Using a water-based Non-Toxic Nail Polish product gives you a pleasing feeling. They come in more than 20 different shades and are extremely environment friendly. It is always suggested to apply conditioner before applying them for better results. A good conditioner creates a barrier between the natural oils in the nail bed and the polish and prevents the breakdown of your shine.
Next, make sure that your nails are in tip-top shape. File them, clip them, and buff them until any cracks or broken edges have been smoothed. If you start with healthy nails, they will be less prone to breaking, which will ensure that your nails will resist chipping. Apply a clear base coat to each nail and wait for it to thoroughly dry. Then, apply your color, wait for it to dry, and apply a second time.
