10 Nail Polish Mistakes We All Make

Standard

Most of us are guilty of committing mistakes when having our nails done on our own. When you find yourself in the same situation, remember that everybody else had some time in their lives have failed in creating the perfect nails that they want to have. It can be totally embarrassing, but you can learn from them and just laugh everything off after a while. After all, no one is perfect. To fail is equivalent to be human.

Nail Polish

Here are the top 10 nail polish mistakes that many of us may have done or are still doing until now:

 

  1. Not preparing the nail surface well. Filing the edges of the nails and buffing the nail surface properly are also needed in preparing the surface of the nails. Doing these will allow the polish to set firmly on the nails and create a better finish.

 

  1. Starting on a greasy nail surface. Though it is necessary to rehydrate the nails after filing and buffing, it is best to wait for the nails to be completely done before applying cuticle oil on the nail surface. Starting off with an oily surface will make it difficult for the nail polish formula to cling on the nails.

 

  1. Using an sns nails old polish. Though it is not totally true, still having a fresh nail coat other than what you have used for the past few months will leave a better-looking finish. You can still use the old polish only if it is still thin enough and can be applied without forming bubbles on your nails. If you do not have any other option but to use an old bottle of your favorite polish, make sure to thin out the formula first before using it. You also need to make sure that the nail paint has not passed its expiration date as its texture, consistency, as well as its color, may change if it does.

 

  1. Not using a base coat. The base coat acts like a primer and lengthens the wearability of your nail polish, so if you think that you can use just the nail color that you want and skip the base coat, think again. The base coat serves as an anchor and increases the adhesive property of the nail color on your nails.

 

  1. Not using the top coat. Just as the base coat is important to have perfectly polished nails, it is also necessary that a top coat is applied on the nails. Doing so will make the nails looking shinier and will prevent the edges of the nails from chipping off or breaking.

 

  1. Avoiding the cuticle area. When painting the nails, you need to get as close as possible to the cuticle without actually painting over it. To do this, apply a light pressure near the cuticle and gently spread the brush out. You would not want to go on a single stroke either as it may not be enough to cover the whole surface and might leave you an unevenly painted nail. Instead, you need to swipe from the left to the right then down the center to the tip of the nail to cover the whole surface evenly.

 

  1. Applying a thick coat at once. This will make it longer, if not possible for the nail paint to dry out. Instead, apply a thin and even coat and wait a couple of minutes before applying a second then a third coat (depending on the depth of the color that you want to have on your nails). Applying a thick coat will also increase the chance of smudging the edges of the nails near the skin. For a cleaner and easier application, apply a thin coat first. Then, just add additional coats to provide a more solid covering for your nails.

 

  1. Using an acetone remover. Using a nail polish remover with a high acetone content can easily dry and weaken nails and the skin surrounding the nail. There are other natural polish removers you can use to remove an old nail polish like hot water, toothpaste, baking soda, even a fresh polish. If you need to have your nails done next time, you can opt for alternatives than your regular acetone-based nail polish remover.

 

  1. Taking a shower after having a manicure or a pedicure. Ask any technician and you won’t hear anyone who would not advise of allowing the polish to rest properly before having a shower. That means overnight.

 

  1. Going to bed after having a manicure. Just like having a shower or having your hands under running water, going to bed after having your nails done will also ruin your manicure or pedicure. Allow a few hours to the polish is completely dry before doing so.

There are a lot of DIY pedicure tips but these are for you

Imagine this: It’s terribly hot out there and the sun is at its peak. You will definitely wear shoes to protect your feet.

This way, you won’t spend half your shoe budget on just your nails.

a lot of DIY pedicure tips

Begin in the shower

Your shower fundamentally acts like a sophisticated steam room, which mollifies the layers of dead skin on your feet and providing the perfect opportunity to deal with that dead skin. Whenever you’re having your bath, scrub your feet with an exfoliating scrub. In case you’re suffering calluses, stash a foot file in your bathroom and use it once or twice a week to take care of the dead skin. If you’re hoping to fix your nails later, apply Julep Essential Cuticle Oil or any lovely moisturizing oil to it. The oil infiltrates the skin more rapidly than moisturizer and acts like a treatment

Stay away from clippers unless it’s extremely essential

Nail clippers can turn out to be weapons sometimes. Alright, not so much yet they can hurt you if you don’t use them with care. In case you’re utilizing one to trim your toenails, be mindful so as not to cut them right where the dead nail starts. Clipping toenails too short can prompt a higher possibility of creating up an ingrown nail so it is ideal you work with a nail file that just doesn’t alter the shape of the nail. Different people have different nail shapes so it is possible that your nails are not long enough to be clipped any way.

Go easy on the nail polish

A lot of women tragically try to do thicker layers of polish with the goal that they get the shading as it shows up in the container in a solitary application. Be a smart customer when choosing friendly and safe nail products, kiara sky gel polish or sns nail powder is an option for you. However, if you wind up finishing an entire bottle of polish o your nails, they end up more inclined to chipping. Instead, it should be three strokes for every nail—at most—and two layers is enough while allowing a few minutes for each coat to be dried up properly.

Keep up all that diligent work

If you are diligent about nurturing and taking care of your feet, then it is absolutely not necessary to shell out for another pedicure the rest of the summer. You can if you want to but you can always save cash by opting for DIY methods. Put on socks always and apply cream and cuticle oil all over the feet at least once weekly. Wear it overnight and you’ll be welcomed to gentler and smoother feet with no last-minute trek to the salon required.

Hi there my friend,

How are you doing today?

My guess is…overwhelmed.

You have too much on your plate – what with all of the stuff you have to do for your family and friends, and then there’s that business that you so desperately want to work on, but, well, something came up and you’re running around all day doing other things…

You know you need to get your life under control so you can actually move forward and make some money, but it just seems impossible to even think that one day you will be in a place of having enough time to devote to your business.

Did I read your mind?

I thought so.

That’s because I totally know what you’re going through!

If I could tell you how many times I went through the day feeling like that when I was in the early stages of my business…And I’ll admit I’m not perfect and I still have those days (watch the video below to find out).

But there’s a secret you need to know that my coach shared with me and it totally shifted everything for me.

You can get out of overwhelm right now.

It’s simple really.

You just need to decide that you will no longer let overwhelm control your life.

In fact, let’s just take the ‘o’ word out of our vocabulary completely. That’s what my coach told me to do.

Instead of my mantra being “I’m overwhelmed” I shifted it to “Everything is easy

And in just a few days, I can already feel a difference in how I feel physically and mentally, and I am changing the way I go through my day. I am so excited about this that I filmed a quick video for you about the shift.

If this video inspired you to let go of the ‘o’ word for good, and you would like some help figuring out exactly HOW to do just that, then click here and let’s talk.

Lots of love,

Lianne

PS-I am passionate about helping YOU get to a place where everything is easy, where you go through your day with ease and grace. It is totally possible for you.Let me show you how.
