Nail Art Tips & Tricks

Nail art can be a lot of fun. It gives you a special creative freedom where you can show off your own personal style and experiment with new styles of manicures and pedicures. Consider these nail art tips and tricks to help you keep your nails in tip-top shape:

  • Maintain Your Nails: Experts suggest redoing your manicures and pedicures once every week to keep them looking nice.
  • Protect Your Nails: Try to find a natural nail polish remover, or at least a gentler formulation, especially if you plan to change your manicures and pedicures every week.
  • Jazz up Your Nails: If you can afford it, try to snag a few new colors of nail polish or new nail art supplies when the seasons turn.
  • Protect Your Work Space: Put down some newspaper or paper towels to protect your counter top or table to prevent any spillage or damage.
  • Use a Nail Station: If you would like to keep your hands steadier while painting your nails, consider buying the Rada Pro Nail Station or a similar product where you can rest your hand on something as you paint your nails.
