Keeping your nails pretty doesn’t have to be expensive or overly time consuming.
Over the years, I’ve learned that the secret to a long-lasting manicure is in the polish and how you apply it.
As you know, there are lots of high-priced brands of nail polish out there, but I’ve found that price is no predictor of how well a polish will wear. For me, “Sally Hansen” stays on longer than a lot of the more expensive brands – if you use the following steps.
1. Use a Sally Hansen polish that has a pearl or frosted finish.
2. Apply two thin coats, waiting a FULL 15 minutes after the first coat before beginning the second.
3. Do not put your hands in water for at least TWO HOURS after applying the second coat. Actually, it’s best if you can just sit and relax during that time. Why not read or watch a movie! 🙂
After all, who has time to fuss any more often than that? 🙂
