Top Tips for Long-Lasting Nails – elements Beauty Salon Oxted

So, what can you do to keep your nail colour looking perfect for longer? Here are our top tips to help protect your nails.

Biting your Nails: Biting your nails is one the most common ways to ruin your polish. Try applying a no-bite polish on your nails to help wean you off this nasty habit.

Spritzing Perfume: Avoid spraying your perfume too close to your nails because your scent may well contain some of the same ingredients as nail polish remover!

Applying Hair Spray: Similar to perfume, some hair sprays contain chemicals that will wear away at your nail polish. Avoid running your painted nails through your hair.

Adding Sunscreen: Put your sunscreen on BEFORE applying your nail polish. Many sunscreens will soften nail polish and can even dissolve acrylic nails.

Cleaning the House: Many cleaning products contain acetone, found in many nail polish removers, so check the labels carefully. Consider wearing gloves if you want your nail polish to last longer.

Washing the Dishes: Grab a pair of dish gloves to protect your nails (and hands) from harsh soaps. These soaps will start to lift your polish from your nails. It’s a great excuse to get your loved ones to lend a hand too!

Showering, Bathing & Swimming: While we do not suggest you go without bathing, it might be worth cutting your shower short or giving your swimming a miss if you want to keep your nails looking sensational for a special event. Water will raise your nail polish from your nail, meaning it will begin to peel and chip.
