If you’re struggling to get a long-lasting, hard-wearing manicure, rest assured, we’ll show you some easy ways to protect your manicure and prevent your polish from breaking.
Take more time with your preparation steps
Breakage occurs when the powder doesn’t adhere properly to the nail. The first thing to do is start your manicure by properly preparing your nail bed. Gently push back the cuticles and make sure you do it right.
Buff your nails before starting your manicure
Lightly buffing your nails to smooth out any bumps, no matter how small or invisible, is another key to a long-lasting manicure. Use your nail buffer block to remove shine from the nail bed.
Fight greasy nails
There is a certain type of nail, that is stricken with what is affectionately called “oily nail syndrome. In this case don’t panic, you just have to degrease your nails by rubbing them gently with a cotton soaked in alcohol or acetone just before starting the application.
