Are your nails looking kinda dull? Get your nails ready because they’re the last piece of the puzzle when it comes to completing your overall look. This is how to ensure that your manicure stays intact, and how it can save you from all the unnecessary nail expenses.
1. CLEAN and BUFF
Just like when putting on makeup, begin with a clean canvas and make sure there’s no dirt lingering beneath your nail’s tips.
Try this: Revlon nail clipper (P299)
This handy staple makes the cut, literally. Easy, straight-to-the-point, and clean. It comes with an attached nail file for your on-the-go needs.
For a smoother color application, moisturize your hands and nails with cream or lotion. Trust us, it makes a world of difference.
Try this: Clinique Deep Comfort Hand and Cuticle Cream (P2280)
Exactly what you need in a rush–a non-greasy instant relief that provides for long-term effect.
3. NAIL FOUNDATION
Yes, there’s such a thing as nail foundation now. This step is crucial as you face different elements outdoors. Maintain your cute colored nails no matter where you are.
Try this: Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure (P395)
For those who do not have time to be bothered with base and top coats, but still want that lasting effect. Just apply and you’re ready to go.
Time for our favorite part. Play with different colors to make a statement wherever you go. Remember that you’re not limited to just one!
Try this: Chanel La Vernis in Tulle (P1250)
You’re definitely getting more than the designer name. Their stunning signature colors lasts for more than a week.
