Five rules for chip free manicure





If you are like me you want your nicely painted nails to last more than two days. Somehow in the past I only managed my french tips to be up to the task while all the other colours chipped almost immediately after the polish was dry. Only later I've learned couple of tricks that help the nail polish stay chip free for very long, sometimes even a week.

1. File the nails thoroughly Broken or chipped nail will make the polish chip faster, so make sure all the nails are filed nicely and neatly.

2. Wash off all the products If you used any nail oils or cuticle creams make sure to wash them off, you need a clear nail surface for the polish to stay put.

3. Use base coat and top coat I'm not that disciplined when it comes to base and top coat, but it does prolong the polish wear. Recently I found this two in one base and top coat which makes it super easy to use.

4. Don't apply thick coats Thick nail polish coats are my thing and I love the way they look on the nails, still they don't last as long. So paint two very thin coats, it will be enough. Here I'm wearing Essie polish in the shade Smokin Hot.

5. Leave each coat to dry This is what I was doing wrong, mainly because I want to paint my nails as fast as I can. But you have to be patient and give each layer a chance to dry properly.



Ako ste kao ja onda volite da vam lepo namazani nokti traju duže od dva dana. Ranije sam to uspevala  da postignem samo sa francuskim manikirom dok su se druge boje ljuštile skoro čim bi se osušile. Tek kasnije sam naučila nekoliko trikova koji pomažu da lak ostane neokrnjen jako dugo, ponekad i nedelju dana.

1. Temeljno isturpirajte nokte Kad su nokti slomljeni ili okrnjeni lak se brže suši, tako da treba da budu lepo i uredno isturpijani.

2. Isperite sve proizvode Ako koristite ulja za nokte ili kreme za zanoktice, lepo ih isperite. Da bi lak dugo trajao površina nokta treba da bude čista.

3. Koristite podlak i nadlak Nisam toliko disciplinovana kada se radi o ova dva proizvoda, ali oni stvarno produžavaju trajnost laka za nokte. Skoro sam otkrila ovaj dva u jedan podlak i nadlak, što ga čini izuzetno lakim za korišćenje.

4. Ne nanosite debele slojeve laka Ja volim debele slojeve laka i svidja mi se kako izgledaju na noktima, ali kad su slojevi debeli lak se brže ljušti. Nanesite dva tanka sloja, to će biti dovoljno. Ovde nosim Essie lak u boji Smokin Hot.

5. Ostavite svaki sloj da se dobro osuši Ovo je korak u kome sam ja najviše grešila, uglavnom zato što volim da nokte namažem što brže mogu. Ipak, treba imati strpljenja i dati svakom sloju vremena da se lepo osuši.

  2. Great tips, I think it is also good to seal the edges with your topcoat that way it doesn't lift or chip at the free edge.
