Amazing Hands!

Just splashed out on a manicure only to have it last 2 days before chipping? We know – like totally annoying! 
 
Here are our tips to get a little longer out of that manicure and making you the envy of all your besties! 
 

1. B.Y.O.B!

If you go to a salon, consider bringing your own bottle of polish. Nail salons notoriously add thinners to extend the life of old enamel, which can change the colour and cause bubbling and peeling. (Don’t forget to store your polishes in a cool, dark spot!)

A couple of our faves include the bold white nail trend as well as a bright berry hue - perfect for the balmy summer months!

OPI Alpine Snow and OPI That's Berry Daring (as featured in our Summer Berry Box!). 
Both colours offer a bold alternaive to a bland nude and boost any celebratory event!

2. FIX NICKS STRAIGHT AWAY

Nicking polish that's almost dry can lead to chipping later on. Rub a little cuticle oil over a dent to smooth it out!
 


3. AVOID UNNCESSARY HEAT 

While it might feel dry to the touch, your polish can take up to 12 hours to fully harden and cure. 

 

4. HAVE ALL THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT 

In your kit you will need; an array of files and buffers, cuticle oil, nail strengthener, a great base coat and a long lasting top coat.
 


5. MOISTURISE! 

Hands are a tell-tale sign of your age as well as those many years of neglect and sun exposure. Our award-winning Age Delay Hand and Cuticle Cream is the ideal dual-purpose hand cream to pop in your handbag.
