A Quick Tip About Manicures

Ever get frustrated with your manicure? Whether you do it yourself or have it professionally done, it's a real bummer when your polish starts to chip or peel the very next day. I just picked up a little tip from Neri Ortega, lead manicurist at The Butterfly Studio Salon in New York City, that I'd like to share with you.

After your hands have been massaged or moisturized, clean your nail bed twice with nail polish remover. Doing it twice is important, so that there is no oily or creamy residue left on your nails. I knew that this step was important, but I thought that one sweep of soaked cotton ball would do the trick. Apparently this is where I've gone wrong. An emollient-free and dry nail bed are the keys to a long-lasting manicure.

Now don't be shy. The next time you're at the salon, if they only clean your nails off once, ask them to repeat the process. There's no harm in speaking up if you want your manicure to stay intact.

THANKS BELLA!! THIS ALL MAKES SENSE NOW. PRIOR TO POLISHING I ALWAYS GO CRAZY WITH THE MOISTURIZER. I ALWAYS THOUGHT MY POLISH WAS THE PROBLEM. LITTLE DID I KNOW I WAS THE PROBLEM. LOL. :)
