Easy Tips For Removing Stains From Your Nails| Part One

Almost Nothing is More Frustrating than Preparing for a Getaway than having your Newly Manicured and Polished Nails Stained.

 Removing stains from your freshly manicured nails is nothing short of a pain in the butt. While you likely have no interest in getting polish remover on the rest of your nails, you can do the deed, simply and safely, with Nail Polish Remover Wipes.  Each wipe can typically remove polish of all ten nails, so one nail is in your wheel house of DIY. Removing stains from your nails can be tricky, depending on the stain, but there are some tried-and-true methods that work. Begin by gently wash your hands to remove any debris or stray fibers that may attach themselves to your other nails. Using an acetone nail polish remover gentle wipe the stained nail without scrubbing.  Once you’ve removed the stain or blemish, repaint with a Gel top coat. Next repaint the nail with the new or original color, let dry and then add a second top coat.

Keep Your Freshly Polished Nails Chip-Free by doing an easily and effective follow-up that will work at home, at work or on a business trip.

Apply a layer of base coat to your nails and wait two minutes so it can set. A base coat protects your nails from discoloration caused by dark-pigmented polished. It also makes your polish last longer and adheres better to your nails than nail polish does.

  • Apply a long-lasting, chip-resistant nail polish. Look for ingredients such as keratin, acrylic polymers and calcium. Avoid using a quick-dry polish because these don’t last long. Apply a thin layer of polish in three strokes: one in the middle of the nail plate, one to the left side and one to the right side.
  • Wait two minutes so the polish can dry before applying a second thin layer. Wait two more minutes to let the second layer dry. If you use a dark shade of nail polish, wait at least three minutes between layers because dark polishes take longer to dry.
  • Apply two layers of top coat to your nails to seal, strengthen and protect your polish. Avoid using a quick-dry top coat because these are less effective than slow-drying top coats. Wait up to 20 minutes to let your nails dry; avoid touching the polish.
  • Mist your nails with a quick-dry spray to hasten drying.
  • Apply a layer of fresh top coat over your nails every other day to keep your polish strong, protected and looking fresh.

Chips (preferably those of the barbecue or tortilla variety) belong in your hands, not on them. It’s been almost three weeks, and I’ve had more chips in my hands than on my Smith and Cult manicure. I have a grand total of two chips on my nails. Two. A new polish line from Dineh Mohajer, the creator of the much-loved Hard Candy, Smith and Cult nail lacquers are super-glossy, high-shine, beautiful, durable, and, most important, fun. The glitter polishes are an arts-and-crafter’s dream, densely packed with the kind of fine glitter found in the expensive aisle of an art store. The polish names are weird and funny, like Bitter Buddhist, Cut the Mullet, and Gay Ponies Dancing in the Snow (for a glitter-jammed, Barbie pink).
