Manicure tips and tricks

Everyone loves beautiful nails, whether with or without nail polish. Good healthy nails are, or should be, a goal for everyone. The main reason is that everyone can see your hands and that is one part of leaving a good impression on people. In this post I am going to talk about how to make your nails happy and your manicure long lasting.


The first and most important thing about healthy looking nails is not biting them. If your nail breaks, cut it, don’t chew it even. Now that this is clear, let’s move on to other aspects of good manicure.


Few simple steps on how to make nail polish stay longer on your nails:

  • Buff the nails

Buffing your nails creates a smoother base for the nail polish. The smoother the base is, the better the polish stays on.


  • Base coat

When painting your nails, use a base coat. First, it prevents nails going yellow because of active ingredients in the nail polish. Second, it helps the nail polish go smooth and even on the nail. Like I said before- the smoother the base is, the better the polish stays on.

  • Top coat

Applying top coat to your nails is quite self explanatory. It locks down the colour and creates a protective layer.


Another important aspect of maintaining healthy nails if you actively do manicures, is washing your hands. After you remove nail polish, you should wash your hands and nails. Usually nail polish removers are drying your nails. The nail polish remover can also turn your nails yellow if you don’t wash your hands after using it.


I also use The Body Shop  Almond Nail & Hand Cream. It has been my favourite hand cream through the years. The cream has a good almond scent, which I absolutely love. It leaves my hands smelling like sweet almonds on a summer day. The cream moisturises my hands and conditions nails.


The second product I use to treat my nails is The Body Shop Almond Nail & Cuticle Oil. It moisturises and makes nails stronger. If you have strong moisturised nails, they will look healthy and grow quicker.


Those are my tips and tricks to have nice nails and manicure. What are yours?

  1. I really like the nail pencil French manicure look! I wonder if I can find one at a local drug store, or if I would have to special order it…

  2. Great tips! (haha, pun intended)
    Base coats are a must for me – it makes a huge difference on how long a polish lasts on me.
    I like filing my nails with crystal / glass files – I feel they help the nails to not peel or crack as much.

    • Hah! That’s a good pun! 😂 I have tried glass files before but with them it feels like it’s taking ages before I get my nails done. I don’t have so much time to spend only filing my nails 🙈
