How To Make Your Manicure Chip-Proof #SHEfindsSolutions

There is nothing more frustrating than spending $20+ on a manicure or taking the time to do it yourself, just to have your nails chip within a couple of days. To help keep your mani long lasting, follow these steps for chip-proof nails:

Step 1: Shape and file. Make sure you file your nails in the same direction. Going back and forth can actually cause breakage, which doesn’t hold polish long.

Step 2: Use nail polish remover or soap and water to make sure you got rid of all oils and residue on your nails before you add polish.

Step 3: Add a base coat. This acts as a primer and allows for a smoother application of your nail color.

Step 4: Paint your nails. Make sure you apply thin layers so the polish doesn’t peel easily.

Pro Tip: Wait at least 2 minutes between applying coats of polish. Once all your nails are painted, slide a thin layer horizontally across the tip of your nail.

Step 5: Add your top coat. Deborah Lippman’s top coat dries really fast and protects your nails for a long time! Caption Polish’s top coat is also an editor favorite here at SHEfinds.

Easy enough, right? Here’s to chip-free manis for days on end!
