No chip nonsense
Spend less time redoing your nails and more time enjoying your holiday! Veethi Telang shares some quick tips to help extend the life of your manicure.
Tip 1: Base it up
Your nailpaint will stay on best if you prep your nails with a clean base coat. Allow it to dry completely before you apply the next coat. This way, you help the polish stick to your nail more easily and render it a more even texture.
Tip 2: Shimmer shammer
Shimmery nail polishes are a fantastic way to keep the colour in place. All thanks to the tiny glitter particles that help the colour cling to your nails. What’s more, shimmery nail paints are an easy way to add pizzazz to your evening look!
Tip 3: Thicks and thins
Dip your nails in a really thick nailpaint and that’s a sure invitation to chipping! Instead, apply thin coats to avoid smudges and bubbles. A great way to keep your nail polishes from getting thick is to store them in the refrigerator. What’s more, this little trick increases their shelf life too!
Tip 4: Drying time
Make sure you let your nails dry for at least 45 minutes before you start handling stuff. Once dry, dip them in ice-cool water to lock in the colour. Apply some moisturiser on your hands and nails later to complete the process.
Most importantly, use quality nail colour that will last longer and make the most of these tips. Choose from the eight enticing pop hues from Lakmé Absolute Nail Tints that ensure long-lasting colour and chip-free vacation.
