The perfect mani… a mystery to many of us, a challenge for most. ‘Chipping’ is one of those words no one wants to hear after spending 10 minutes resisting the urge not to touch anything while our favourite varnish dries. Luckily, there are a few tips and tricks that our friends at Kester Black have so generously passed along for your painting pleasure. Scroll down and enjoy. You’re welcome!
Step 2. Using your favourite Kester Black colour, glide the brush over each fingernail, coating the surface from base to tip. We don’t recommend using basecoat unless you are using a dark coloured polish, it’s just another layer to chip.
Step 3. Apply a second layer of colour to each nail, covering any streaks from the initial coat. Give each coat 5 minutes to set.
Step 4. Seal your colour with a Kester Black Topcoat. Take extra care to cover the tips of your nails to avoid chipping and allow another 5 minutes for the finished product to dry.
Step 5. To refresh and prolong your manicure, apply Kester Black Topcoat to just the tips of your nails every 2 days.
