Sand, chlorine, dishes or sports, our nail polish is subjected to a tough test! To be impeccable for longer, here are 4 unstoppable techniques that will return your varnish to its original brilliance, whatever the circumstances.
1/ A stronger fixation while remaining natural with vinegar
Moisten your nails with a cotton pad soaked in white vinegar and allow to dry. The vinegar will act as a resistant protective base allowing your varnish to hold longer. And do not be afraid of the strong odour that escapes, your nail polish will soon mask it all!
2/ Two thin layers instead of one thick
Clean your nails well, dry them, then apply a protective layer to protect them and make them more resistant. Apply two thin coats of varnish (instead of one thick), making sure that the first coat has dried before applying the second coat. Tip: insist well on the tips of the nails and below, that is where the varnish begins to disappear.
3/ Apply a top coat over your varnish
One hour after applying your nail varnish, apply a transparent top coat, which will trap the pigments of the varnish to protect it from shocks and make it last longer. Add one coat every other day for efficiency.
4/ Wear gloves during housework
A stupid obvious trick but effective to protect its varnish, and by extension, its nails, and allow them to last longer.
