If you don’t want to have your nails done profressionally here are some some common mistakes that people make that can ruin your nails perfect finish and ho to avoid them.

Here are the top 5 nail polish mistakes you should know.

1.Taking a hot shower after applying a polish

Never shower immediately after applying polish. Exposing the polish to heat can cause it to bubble or smudge. Wait an hour or so after a manicure before you take that relaxing shower.

2.Going to bed after a polish

Although nails may appear dry after 20-30 minutes, it really takes up to 24 hours before the polish is fully dry.  If it is late at night and you need to get to bed, wait for the polish to start setting and then run cold water over your hands for about 3 minutes. It can help the polish set a lot faster.

3.Skipping the topcoat

It may seem like a time saver, especially if you are in a hurry but it can cut down on the shiny finish of your nails and can also shorten the life of your polish. For an even longer nail polish life span, apply a new layer of topcoat every other day.

4.Skipping base coat

A base coat smooths the surface of your nail for that flawless finish. It can also prevent the pigments of the nail polish from staining your nails. It’s an extra step but totally worth it!

5.Using one stroke to apply nail polish

One stroke alone cannot cover your entire nail. It’s difficult to get into your nails sidewalls and the cuticle area,but missing these areas can make your nails look unfinished. Apply nail polish to your nails in 3 or 4 strokes. Start in the centre near the cuticle, swipe to the right side, return to the starting point, swipe to the left side, return to the centre and swipe down the middle.
