This year’s trend for nails is much less about colour and more about a glossy, gleaming, glimmering texture. Here’s a few essential nail care tips you can try at home…
Get rid of hangnails
Nail care starts with your cuticles. Soften your skin with a cuticle balm.
Neaten the edges
Push back cuticles with a cuticle remover. Use an added serum to gently and painlessly loosen and remove excess skin in a minute. Remember to wash off straight after use.
Improve the health of your nails
Improve the health of your nails by cutting off on the gelish manis and working in a strengthening product between appointments.
Hands are often a giveaway for age – pamper them as you would the rest of your body and get rid of dehydrated skin with a quality scrub.
Top tip: You could also massage in the remainder of your face exfoliator, then rinse it off.
Focus on zero damage
Apply an overnight mask to repair any damage.
Aim for no peel nails
Choose a gentle nail strengthener.
Use a top coat
Finish your manicure with a speed-dry overcoat.
Anti-age your hands
Religiously apply a good SPF hand cream.
Keep your nails trimmed
Regularly file and buff nails to prevent snags that weaken them.
