Anyone who follows my Instagram knows how obsessed with painting my nails I am. I own every color you could imagine. A lot of people ask me how I keep my nails healthy and strong. I love having long nails without having to wear tips. Artificial nails and shellac can reap havoc on natural nails so I like to avoid these at all costs. I use a few products that allow me to do this and keep my natural nails from breaking.
First, I file my clean nails into the shape I desire which currently is oval. Then, I cut my cuticles with my trusty tool. I smooth everything with a buffer and use nail polish remover to take off any oils that may be left on nails. This will definitely make your mani last longer.
I start with Essie Base Coat. My favorite new product is OPI Nail Envy and I apply two coats to nails after. This stuff is genius and really does prevent breakage. My nails are so hard and strong now. Reapply it every other day.
There you have it. Until the next manicure.....
