Storage and usage tips
Nail polish should be stored in a cool, dry place when not in use.
Polish can become thick, gloopy and difficult to apply over time because the solvent slowly evaporates as air gets into the bottle. We recommend you keep the neck of the bottle clean when not in use. This allows the lid to create a far better seal when the bottle is closed and can help to lengthen the life of your polish.
If your polish becomes too thick, we recommend adding a few drops of a nail polish thinner following your chosen manufacturer's guidelines. We do not recommend the use of nail polish remover to thin your old gunky polishes.
Some pigments/colourants can separate from the suspension base over time. Shake the bottle vigorously if this happens, and you should find that all the components mix back together easily (the steel ball in the bottle will help to agitate the components).
Getting the best results from our polish
- Use a good quality base coat on clean, dry nails before applying nail polish. This will give your polish an even surface to adhere to, making your finished manicure look smooth and professional. It will also help to prevent staining and extend the life of your manicure.
- Apply thin coats of polish and wait for it to dry between coats. A couple of thin coats will last longer and give far more effective coverage than thick coats.
- Finish your manicure with top coat, and re-apply every 2/3 days to keep that high-gloss, "just stepped out of the salon" appearance. Use gloves if your hands are regularly in contact with water or harsh chemicals.
- Moisturize your hands and cuticles at every opportunity!
