The quality of your manicure greatly depends on the quality of your nail polish. This is why selecting the right nail polish is such an important step in nail care.

It is advisable that you choose nail polish which does not contain acetone. Apart from selecting a color you like, choice is also required in selecting base and overcoat, strengtheners and finish. Today many cosmetic companies offer products containing both base and color or color and finish which is often convenient, but this convenience is sometimes at the expense of the quality of the product.

The best way to discover the quality of a certain polish is to try it out. Yet regardless, here are a few things to consider before you buy your nail-care product.

Selecting the color

When looking at the colors of polish in the cosmetics isle do not consider them individually. Try to imagine how a certain color will look when combined with your skin, hair, clothes and personality. Keep in mind that catalog colors may vary greatly and even a color you really like may look more intense in the bottle and more watered down when applied to your nails. Try out polish when possible. When shopping for clear nail polish, keep in mind that it should be applied over a stronger foundation.

Saturation

You should check the saturation of your polish before you begin applying it. If a drop does not fall from the tip of the brush in 5 seconds, then the polish is too dry. It will dry quicker and its application will be difficult.

Selecting a brush

The brush for nail polish application should be long and flexible with thin elastic strands. Before each use, make sure the strands are straight.

Combining polish

Buy a container of polish with a small metallic ball inside. This will improve the mixing when you combine different colors.

Incrusted nail strips

If you have no patience to apply nail polish and wait for several coats to dry, then invest in adhesive nail strips, which cover the nails nicely and provide easy elegance.
