The preparation

The importance of careful preparation cannot be overstated when it comes to maximizing the durability of your nail polish. Make sure your nails are spotlessly clean, completely dry and free from grease.

Take the time to thoroughly remove any old nail polish residue and use nail polish remover - even if your nails don't appear to be painted - to remove any excess grease or residue. By giving your nails a solid base, you increase the chances of the fresh polish sticking to them for a brilliant, long-lasting result.

Choosing the right basecoat

Using a base coat before applying colored nail polish is an
essential step to achieve a flawless and long-lasting result. Before you dive into the world of color, it is highly advisable to always apply a high-quality base coat. This not only protects your nails from unwanted discoloration that can be caused by intensely pigmented polishes, but also promotes the adhesion of the nail polish and gives it an even, smooth surface.

The additional layer creates a kind of protective shield that gives your nails strength and helps them to absorb the colored nail polish evenly and smoothly. A carefully applied base coat is therefore the foundation for a stunning nail design that will stand the test of time.

The art of application

The art of applying nail polish lies in mastering the right thickness. It may be tempting to apply a thick coat to achieve the desired color result quickly, but the key to a long-lasting and flawless finish lies in patience. Instead of one thick, uneven coat, apply the nail polish in two to three thin, even coats .

This way, each coat dries faster and the risk of bubbling, unevenness or chipping is significantly reduced. Give each coat enough time to dry completely before carefully applying the next. This meticulous approach may be a little more time-consuming, but the flawless, long-lasting result will reward you for your patience and more than justify the effort.
