Looking after our nails is essential as they can easily become damaged and weaken over time, due to everything we use our hands for on a daily basis.

Follow these 7 easy tips to look after your nails in the best way possible!

1. Avoid Bold Shades

Avoid colours such as red, black, blue, yellow and orange as they are commonly known to leave a stain.

If you're going to use these colours, make sure you use a good base coat before you apply any polish.

2. Use a Base Coat

Skipping a base coat will lessen the quality of your nails over time as well as weaken them, so it's always better to use one and be safe than sorry!

Apply the base coat onto your natural nails, before you apply your first coat of nail polish.

Base coats are great for providing a protective layer over your nails to reduce (and even prevent completely) discoloured stains.

It's probably not a surprise to hear that nail polish is quite damaging anyway, so if you're going to use a bright or bold nail polish colour, you should definitely use a base coat beforehand for extra protection.2

I would recommend using China Glaze's 'strong adhesive' base coat because it dries quickly and does a great job of protecting your nails, especially against those harsh, bold nail polishes.

3. Use a Top Coat

Top coats are important for maintaining your nail polish and making it last longer.

It protects your nail polish from chipping, weakening and splintering as well as maintaining the shine and vibrant colour of your polish.

This is a vital step since our nails are at full exposure on a daily basis since we use our hands for almost everything.

There's nothing more annoying that spending ages doing your nails, only to have them chipping and falling away as soon as you start cleaning dishes after dinner or even washing your hands.

Top coats are different to base coats and each have different purpose it's not a good idea to try using a base coat as a top coat or vice versa.

You should really have both and this will ensure you're everything you can to protect your nails.

I would recommend using Seche Vite's 'dry fast' top coat because it dries quickly and does a great job of preserving nail polish and prevents most cases of chipping.
