Fantastic Fingernails Tips

Great looking fingernails start with a healthy base. The first step to any great manicure is a cuticle cream that nourishes the nail. Sally Hansen has several options that will heal gnarly cuticles while also strengthening the nail itself.

Next, apply a quality basecoat so that you have a smooth, even surface to start your beautiful nail project. A quality basecoat will fill in any ridges while repairing splits and peeling. This also will protect your nails from staining yellow which often happens if you wear a lot of dark nail polish colors. Be sure to let this step dry completely before adding color or techniques.

With all of the new products out there like gel nail press-ons, nail art pens, and special effect polishes, salon nails are easier than ever to achieve at home. For dark and bright colors like reds, blues, greens, and browns, always use 2 coats allowing each coat to dry before adding the next one. For lighter pinks and nude tones, one coat of a quality polish like OPI or Sally Hansen Diamond should be enough.

Finish off any look with a fast drying topcoat. These help to the nail to dry properly, add shine, reduce chipping, and can also nourish fingernails.  Finally, be sure to moisturize your cuticles one last time to keep them soft and pretty!
