Go the Extra Mile

Beauty Tip Day!

Don’t you always wish your nail polish would last just a little longer?! And for all you ladies with fake nails, you don’t count. I’m talking to the natural, change your color every week, plan-and-simple manicure girls.

Whether you get your nails done or you do them yourself, listen up.

You want to know how to make your nail polish go the extra mile? Dry em. Yup. That easy…OK it’s never that easy…

You must make sure your nails are REALLY dry after you’ve gone through the whole cuticle-removing/massage part of your manicure.

I’m not talking “wash-your-hands-wipe-them-off” kind of dry, I’m talking “spraying-alcohol-on-each-separate-nail-wiping-it-off-with-a-new/completely-dry-towel-and-then-using-a-paintbrush-to-apply-alcohol-to-every-nook-and-cranny-of-your-nail-bed” kind of dry.

Phew, that was long!

If you take meticulous care of the prepping part (or push your nail lady to), your polish will last you a few days longer! Now, I’m not promising you the world (I’m sorry, I really wish I could!) because we all know polish chips eventually, but I will provide you with the tools to make your hard-earned buck (and/or time) go farther.
