Avoid these actions to keep your nail polish smooth
To make your nail polish smooth and, of course, be far away from cracking, please DO NOT
✖ Shake your nail polish bottles: Simply roll your nail polish bottle between the palms of your hands instead of shaking it. If you shake the bottle, you are more likely to get air bubbles on application.
✖ Take a shower straight after you have painted your nails: Your nail beds expand in the hot water, making the nail polish move with it. This causes cracks and can make your polish chip when your nail beds return to their normal size. Likewise, do not paint your nails straight after a shower.
✖ Continuously apply thick layers of nail polish on your nails: If you apply your nail varnish in thick layers, it won’t dry on to the nail properly. On the opposite side, the thinner the coats, and the longer you let them dry in-between coats, the longer the nail polish will last.
✖ Wash your hands too harshly: This rough action might hurt your nails and discomfort your manicured nails.
✖ Direct contact with cleaning chemicals: Chemicals are absolutely not good for your skin and nails. Remember to wear gloves in case you have to do the dish washing.
