Getting that "Salon" look
  1. Start with clean, dry nails and give them a quick rub over with acetone or alcohol to remove any traces of oil and dehydrate the nail plate to aid adhesion.
  2. Use a good quality base coat. These are designed to bind to both nail plate and polish to create a smooth, even surface, prevent staining and prolong the life of your manicure.
  3. Use thin coats and build up the nail polish for a much smoother - and faster - effect. Wrap the tip of your nail with every coat, creating a seal to prolong the life of your mani and give that professional touch. Correct any mistakes with a nail clean-up (or nail art) brush dipped in acetone.
  4. Always use a top coat to smooth your nail and bring out the depth and detail of your polish. Re-applying every couple of days will refresh your mani and keep that high-gloss finish.
  5. Protect your hands from water or harsh chemicals with gloves, moisturise regularly and use cuticle oil by the bucketload! Jojoba is the best oil for nails, so it's easy and inexpensive to make up your own.
