Top Tips For Long-Lasting Manicures at Top Beauty Salon in Berkshire

Stop Biting Your Nails! : Nibbling your nails is one the most common ways to ruin your manicure. If you find yourself worrying at your nails and spoiling your manicure, try applying a no-bite polish onto them to help wean you off this unsightly habit.

Protect Polish From Your Perfume! :  Avoid spraying your perfume too closely to your nails, many scents contain some of the same ingredients as nail polish remover, which will of course wear away at your manicure.  

Put Down The Hair Spray! : Just as above with perfume, some hair sprays can contain chemicals that will wear away or lift your nail polish. If you simply must use hair spray, make sure that you don’t run your hands through your hair afterwards. 

Add Suntan Lotion Before Nail Polish :  Wearing a quality sunscreen is essential to protect your skin from harmful UV Rays, but it is not quite as good for your manicure. We recommend that you put your sunscreen on BEFORE you apply your nail polish. Many sunscreens will soften and lift nail polish and can even dissolve nail extensions!

Get Someone Else To Clean Your House! : Many standard home cleaning products contain acetone, which is found in many nail polish removers, so check the labels carefully before use. Whilst getting a cleaner would be ideal for many of us, if it isn’t possible we suggest that you wear gloves whilst cleaning to help your nail polish last longer.

Delegate The Dishes! : Dish washing liquids contain harsh chemicals that can cause your nail polish to lift or wear away easily, so it’s the perfect excuse to enlist your loved ones into helping with the washing up! If that fails, grab a pair of gloves to protect your nails (and hands) from the harsh chemicals in the soaps. 

Shorten Your Showers & Swims : While we do not suggest you go forgo showering (!), it may be worth cutting the length of your showers or reducing your morning swim time if you want to keep your nails looking perfect. Water (and chlorine in swimming pools) will raise your nail polish from your nail, meaning it will begin to peel or chip away.
