How To Make Your Manicures Last Longer

You go to the salon, you stand in front of the huge rack of nail polishes and you carefully pick a color that you want the nice ladies to carefully paint on your fingers. You sit there still as she paints your fingers oh so perfectly. Then you wait, you sit and wait to make sure that the polish dries. You’re a happy camper! And a few days later you notice this:

This happens to me every time! The hand washing, working with weights at the gym, the showering, it all works together like an army of one to make sure that my nail polish starts fading on the top.  It’s super frustrating to realize that a couple of days ago you paid someone $25 bucks to do this. And I definitely can’t keep going back to get manicures the moment I see a chip in my nail polish, nor do you ever have the same color you picked at the salon at home to just fix the chip. So I have a little trick that helps hide the chipping. All you need is some glitter nail polish and little bit of patience. You can use either silver or gold glitter depending on which one looks  better with the polish you’re wearing.

    Himani try it at Bebe Salon in Albany. Book an appointment with Cece (insist that she does it) and you will forever be in love with Shellac which will last over 2 weeks if not more.

    This looks pretty cool! I actually do something like that but the reverse way: when my nails stat to grow (they grow pretty fast) and near the cuticles there’s no polish left, I add a new layer of a different polish, and then create kind of a degradé result! It looks really trendy with all the ombré stuff going on :) maybe you can try it out some day *
