The right way to apply the enamel is to start from the center of the nail, and then, to the sides. To make it last longer, apply a colorless base before applying the final enamel. Do not apply several coats of enamel on the nail. That may cause the enamel to peel off and/or to form little bubbles, harming its drying and leaving the nails with a heavy look. It is better to apply two fine coats of enamel than only one thick one.

If the enamel is too hard or thick, forget the acetone and use a few drops of banana oil (enamel solvent).

The color used on the nails is a very personal choice, but we can give you a few clues about how to choose a best color for each moment.
The light and transparent hues (white, pink...) arise naturalness and the darker hues (red, black, brown) represent boldness and seduction. More uncommon hues like blues and greens are usually worn by people who like an exotic look. You can also choose the enamel´s color to match the color of the clothing you are going to wear or an accessory, for example, the stone on your necklace.

Well manicured nails and with a natural glow also mean femininity and beauty. In Morocco, for example, nail enamel is not much used. The morrocan women keep the nails shiny by rubbing them with a sponge soaked in vinager and letting it work for a few hours.
To keep your nails from getting “little balls” that ruin the painting, you should choose good quality enamels and avoid staying in inappropriate places before the enamel dries (for example, places with too much wind and sand).
The best thing to do is to use non-oily nail enamel remover instead of acetone. But if you really have to use acetone, do it just once a week, because this product, when used in excess, may dry out the nails, making them fragile and crisp. Leave them painted for 6 days and 1 day with no enamel on. A 24-hour rest helps your nails “breath” better.
