At Nail Polish Direct we know whether it’s last minute prep or you want to be organized when it comes to your nails, it’s not just about making your manicure and pedicure look out of this world but also keeping them healthy and treated during your holidays as well . So to help you do exactly this, we have put together four simple steps, just using three high quality products, so you can keep your nails looking salon fresh all holiday long. So read through, and get that dream manicure this summer that just looks perfect for longer, even when you are on the beach.
The first step for your simple pool proof manicure, is all about buffing and shaping your nails, to smooth out any ridges and nicks and create a good base. When it comes to this, Halo provides top high quality products from buffers to foam files so you can get that perfect manicure base – free from any imperfections. Just use our Halo Gel Nails single white block, to gently buff across your natural nail, only using six strokes on each nail. This will leave such an attractive sheen to the nails, to the point where you might even want to skip the polishing step, if you are in a rush. Then choose a file to create your desired shape which prevents your nails from breaking or splitting. File your nails from the outside edge towards the middle. Follow the natural shape of the nail for best results. Avoid sawing back and forth so that you do not weaken the nail.
After completing step one, apply a high quality base coat, such as our Cuccio Nail Solutions Ultra Bond to your natural nail. When doing this, be sure to cap the tips to prolong wear. By wearing a base coat under your polish, this will prevent any staining from your new bright summer polish. This provides a clear protective layer between your natural nail and the pigment of the polish, so you can rock your favourite bright summer shade. Just apply a base coat and allow it to dry, and you are good to go. Not only this, but you will be fully prepared for a long lasting manicure that will give you that salon looking finish that everyone wants. So enjoy your holiday and don’t worry about your nails, they will stay perfect for longer.
This step is all about being you and making your nails as unique as possible. So choose your favourite Summer shade, whether that’s bright and bold like a hot pink, or simple and natural like a nude brown, it’s your choice. Because there are no rules when it comes to your nails. Always remember to avoid your cuticles when polishing, stick to the nail bed and apply up to three coats and cap the tips for the perfect flawless finish.
The last step for that perfect holiday proof manicure and pedicure is all about sealing in your nail polish with a durable top coat. This will protect your manicure from chipping or cracking.
