DON’T: USE ACETONE NAIL POLISH REMOVER
Acetone is super harsh on your nails and dries them out. So, get rid of that stuff today!
DO: USE A CARING REMOVER
A caring nail polish remover should be able to remove even the darkest shades, without harming your nails and cuticles. The ONE Nail Polish Remover contains Vitamin E and other moisturising ingredients for healthy nails.
DON’T: CUT YOUR CUTICLES
Cutting or pushing back your cuticles too far is a big no-no! The skin protects the nail from bacteria and fungi, and removing it can lead to infections.
DON’T: SKIP THE BASE COAT
Many of us get lazy and go straight for the coloured nail polish. This is no good, as it can discolour your nails and shorten the lifespan for your manicure.
DO: APPLY BOTH A BASE COAT AND A TOP COAT
The secret to a long-lasting manicure is to do proper prepping with a base coat and then seal the colour with a top coat. With The ONE Base & Top Coat you can do both!
DON’T: USE TOO MUCH NAIL POLISH
This is probably the most common mistake we make at home. Using too much polish, in thick layers, makes it harder for the polish to dry. This can result in bubbles or dents in the colour. Not so pretty!
DO: APPLY NAIL POLISH IN MODERATION
Apply two coats of nail polish, using only 3-5 strokes per nail. With less polish on the brush it’s easier to control the final result. And this is crucial: always let the first coat dry completely before applying another.
DON’T: WEAR NAIL POLISH TOO LONG
You shouldn’t leave polish on for more than two weeks (or one month on your toenails). The cells in your nails are made of protein and can become damaged from long exposure to nail polish.
DO: GIVE YOUR NAILS A BREAK
Let your nails go polish-free every now and then to help the cells re-build. Take this time to treat your nails to some much-needed care.
