Tips to know:
- Before doing your nails, it’s best to apply a polish remover to ensure that any of the old nail polish is removed. It also prepares the nails so that the new polish can be applied to the nails.
- It’s best to wear gloves when doing dishes or heavy household around the house. By doing this, it’s going to prevent damage to your nails.
- Consider going to local beauty shops as many have a try it before you buy it type deal. This is a great way to see how the nail polish is going to look on your hands before purchasing.
- Base coats are going to dry faster, while a top coat is going to look shiny.
- If your nail polish tends to bubble up, this is a sign of insufficient drying time. To avoid bubbles in the future, be sure to allow adequate drying time in between coats. Experts recommend a UV light dryer to properly dry the nails.

How can I save money?
- Consider purchasing your polish in bulk. The more you purchase, the more you’re going to be able to save.
- Online purchases are usually cheaper than those in your local beauty store. Check out prices on various online merchants such as Amazon before paying in person.
