Yesterday I decided to treat myself to a set of acrylic nails in my local salon to welcome in the summer and I love them!
Spring/Summer 2012 trends are spots and stripes and I'm more than a little obsessed with polka dots at the moment so that's the look I went for! I opted for classical black and white as they match with almost everything and the dots show up more intensely on a dark shade.
You can't just have your nails beautifully manicured and have done with it though, which is a common misconception. You have to give your new nails a bit of TLC.
Here are my top three tips on how!
- After using creams and lotions, wash each nail individually to avoid yellowing.
- NEVER clip or cut nails as they will shatter and become painful, always use an emery board.
- To avoid chipping or smudging, apply clear nail varnish once a week.
